What Are BOTOX and Dermal Fillers?
The perfect solution to rewind the clock and look 10-20 years younger.
Are you bothered by wrinkles and frown lines? Does your face appear saggy or has it lost its volume? These types of problems are easily treatable at Denti Belli Dentistry with BOTOX and dermal fillers. These treatments are non-surgical and minimally invasive, making them popular options for patients to improve their smiles. What’s the difference between these two services?
Why Choose Our Renton Dentist For Facial Esthetics?
Believe it or not, dentists are the preferred provider for injecting BOTOX and dermal fillers for many reasons.
- Trained To Apply BOTOX and Dermal Fillers
As a dentist, Dr. Taylor is trained in understanding your facial areas and musculature. She administers and is proficient with anesthetics because she does this on a daily basis. Dr. Taylor is the master at making your injections comfortable, quick, and relatively painless for you.
On top of that, Dr. Taylor can use BOTOX and dermal fillers to enhance your dental treatments, including anyone having trouble adjusting to dentures, lip augmentation, and orthodontic cases where retraining the facial muscles is necessary.
Other healthcare providers are not as experienced or qualified to administer injections and understanding your facial features. They also cannot treat the full range of areas that dentists can.

Commonly Asked Questions About BOTOX & Dermal Fillers
- How long do BOTOX or dermal fillers last?
While BOTOX and dermal fillers are quickly administered, the results are temporary and will require retreatment. BOTOX lasts for about three to four months, and dermal fillers typically last between 8 and 24 months. If you don’t undergo retreatment, the effects of these cosmetic procedures wear off, and the underlying facial structures return to normal.
- What can I expect during treatment?
Both procedures are simple and are quick.
BOTOX is injected into the appropriate facial muscles, which can last about 5 minutes. It blocks the transmitters between the motor nerve that controls the muscle, stopping the muscle from contracting. That’s when the magic happens, and the skin starts to smooths out. In about 3-10 days, the skin becomes nice and smooth.
Dermal Fillers injects hyaluronic acid fillers into the areas to give your face more volume. Hyaluronic acid is the natural filler substance in your body, and we lose approximately 1% of hyaluronic acid after the age of 30. Dermal fillers can create a beautiful, young-looking frame around the teeth to help restore that volume.
- Are there any adverse reactions?
You may experience little to no side effects from these procedures. While you may experience slight discomfort during the injections, the results will look amazing.
