Can dentists offer Dermal Fillers? The answer is a definite yes! Dentists already have extensive knowledge in facial muscles and tissues. Additionally, dentists in any specialty are often particularly skilled in delivering virtually painless injections.
A Dermal Filler is an FDA-approved prescription medicine that is injected into various points in facial muscles to smooth wrinkles and improve appearance. A Dermal Filler works by blocking signals from the nerves to the muscles so that the muscles can no longer contract. This relaxes and softens wrinkles. Imagine getting rid of frown lines or crow's feet during your dental visit! Dermal Fillers results are not permanent. They typically last four to six months. The treatment requires periodic visits in order to maintain the smooth appearance.
