Botox and Dermal Fillers in Maxillofacial Aesthetics

Posted on 2/2/2024 by Dr McMurray
a woman receving Botox injections from an oral surgeonOral and maxillofacial surgeons (OMSs) are not just about complex surgeries; they are also specialists in facial rejuvenation. They skillfully use injectable treatments like Botox and dermal fillers to offer a gentler, non-surgical path to enhancing facial aesthetics. With their deep knowledge of the head, neck, and oral areas, these surgeons provide personalized care, ensuring patients receive a natural and harmonious transformation without surgery.

Botox Relaxes Facial Lines

Botox contains a purified protein that relaxes specific facial muscles gradually etched with wrinkles from repetitive motions over time. Targeted injections temporarily limit the movement of select muscles where prominent creases form with expression. Commonly treated areas include the glabellar frown lines between the eyebrows, crows feet radiating from the eyelids, and horizontal neck bands. Within one week post-injection, patients notice smoothing and softening of wrinkles in the immobilized areas. Muscle paralysis persists for 3 to 6 months before the effects naturally dissipate through protein turnover. Maintenance injections on a periodic basis help sustain a wrinkle-reduced appearance aligned with patient aesthetic goals.

Facial Fillers Replace Lost Volume

Aging also brings gradual bone, fat, and collagen loss that manifests as sunken facial features. Hyaluronic acid fillers safely and immediately integrate into soft tissue planes to resuscitate aging faces through volume replacement. Strategic injection into hollow temples, tear troughs, sagging lower eyelids, thinning lips, and diminishing cheeks lifts and accentuates facial contours for a refreshed, youthful look. Patients appreciate the quick in-office procedures and visible outcomes restoring facial fullness.

Trust Facial Aesthetics to Specialized OMSs

Both anti-wrinkle and facial volumization therapies require precise anatomical skill and an artistic eye when determining placement and dosage across the complex facial landscape. By leveraging their advanced surgical understanding of intricate facial functional anatomy and its dynamic relationship with aging, OMSs are uniquely poised over stand-alone injectors to administer structural-enhancing outcomes that also maintain optimal muscle movements critical for expression and oral competence. This dual perspective on form and function makes an OMS the sensible choice for facial aesthetic injectables.
