What are they used for?
Botox affects the muscles. They become relaxed within a number of days after treatment, and then the lines in the skin above them smooth out. The action of Botox usually lasts about 3 months.
Dermal Fillers are composed of hyaluronic acid, a natural substance in your body. These work by plumping the area. It fills-in the area which age has caused to sag. Dermal Fillers usually last about 6 months.
Both of these procedures are reversible with time.
Botox is the number one cosmetic procedure in the world. Because of its action on muscles, Dr. Grussenmeyer also uses it in treating TMJ and muscular problems such as BRUXISM and TENSION HEADACHES.
Currently, about 8% of the Botox manufactured is used by dentists!
