Specialty Treatments to Defy Your Age
As part of our overall philosophy of total mind and body wellness, we, at Konikoff Dentistry, want you to feel healthy and confident. In addition to our traditional restorative and preventative dental procedures, we offer several types of cosmetic procedures such as teeth bleaching and well as facial aesthetic procedures.
The facial aesthetic procedures include XEOMIN® neurotoxin to reduce frown lines and RADIESSE®, a wrinkle filler used to plump the skin. XEOMIN® is a BOTOX® alternative.
Aesthetic facial treatments such as XEOMIN®, RADIESSE® and BELOTERO BALANCE® are only administered by a board-certified oral maxillofacial surgeon. While many practices allow nurses and staff members to conduct these procedures, Konikoff Dentistry only permits a board-certified and licensed oral and maxillofacial surgeon to perform these treatments. Our doctors have been using XEOMIN®, RADIESSE® and BELOTERO BALANCE® for years to successfully treat wrinkles and facial creases.
What is an oral and maxillofacial surgeon?
An oral and maxillofacial surgeon is more than a dentist. He, or she, is a board-certified medical doctor and surgeon. This specialty focuses on the anatomical area of the mouth, jaw, face, skull and associated structures. As such, they are legally licensed to administer pharmaceutical injectables such as dermafiller BELOTERO BALANCE®, RADIESSE® and XEOMIN® – a BOTOX® alternative.
A Brief Overview on the Procedure:
XEOMIN®, BELOTERO BALANCE®, RADIESSE® are all injected through a tiny needle.
- RADIESSE® reduces wrinkles by plumping the skin. This filler works immediately to add volume under the skin. Over time, the benefits of RADIESSE® continue by stimulating your body’s own natural collagen. RADIESSE® is FDA approved.
- BELOTERO BALANCE® is FDA-approved to temporarily smooth out and fill in moderate-to-severe nasolabial folds (the folds that go from the side of the nose to the corner of the mouth).
- XEOMIN® is a FDA approved neurotoxin injection that helps reduce frown lines in the forehead or glabellar region by preventing muscle fibers from contracting.
Treatments can last for about 3 months for XEOMIN® and a year or more for RADIESSE®
The effects of BELOTERO BALANCE® can last 6 months or longer.
No anesthesia is required. It takes about 10 to 20 minutes for your doctor to inject.
