Understanding Botox and Fillers

Even if you take great care of your skin, you may not be able to completely stop the formation of lines and wrinkles. Your eyes, your skin and smile tell a story — a story that’s uniquely you. Time attempts to rewrite parts of that story. It changes your appearance through the aging process. Bone structure and volume decrease, wrinkles begin to spread, lips begin to thin. The environment does its part too — sun damage and dry skin can dull the skin’s surface. You begin to look tired, older, sometimes even angry.

With today’s minimally invasive procedures, there are safe ways to restore your natural beauty and slow the aging process. Dr. Jancy can help you win the fight against aging with cosmetic injections, including Botox® and dermal fillers, to smooth out your skin and restore your youthful look.

Meet your Specialist, Dr. Jancy Parkerson-McGovern

In addition to being a highly trained dental professional, Dr. Parkerson incorporates Botox and dermal fillers into her practice in order to treat comprehensive facial aesthetics. After years of treating patients, she recognizes the importance of insuring her patients have all the information they need to feel comfortable with treatment.

THE PROCESS:

Botox and Dermal Fillers Q & A

Botox is the most popular nonsurgical cosmetic treatment in the United States and is FDA-approved to temporarily reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles on your face. Dr. Parkerson uses Botox to smooth out:
  • Lines on your forehead
  • Crow’s feet
  • Frown lines
  • In addition to other areas of the face
  • Botox works by temporarily stopping the movement of the muscle under your skin, which prevents the skin from folding and prevents the formation of the lines. Botox is also used to treat TMD related issues such as pain, headaches, clenching, and grinding
    Botox injections only take a few minutes and can easily be scheduled during your lunch break or in between errands. Like any injection, you may feel a pinch during treatment. But, if you’re sensitive to pain, Dr. Jancy may use a numbing agent before the injections to ease discomfort. There’s no downtime following treatment, so you can go back to work or out with your friends afterward. You should, however, refrain from heavy exercise for up to four hours following your injections and avoiding rubbing the treatment area. You should notice an improvement in your look within 7-14 days, and the results last up to three months.
    Dermal fillers,  smooth out lines and add volume to your face. The experts at Chattanooga Dental Arts use dermal fillers to improve:
    • Thin lips
    • Sunken cheeks
    • Deep lines and wrinkles
    To help meet your specific aesthetic need, the team at Chattanooga Dental Arts offers a number of different types of dermal fillers, including:
    • Juvederm®
    • Versa®
    Depending on the type of dermal filler used and the cosmetic need, the filler can keep you looking young and refreshed for up to a year.
    Dermal filler treatment is a quick cosmetic procedure that requires an hour or less to complete. To ease discomfort, the team uses a numbing agent on the targeted area before the injections begin. Your aesthetic expert injects the filler with care and precision to give you the look you want. When complete, you should notice an improvement in your look immediately. There’s no downtime following treatment, but you may need to limit strenuous exercise for the first day or so.

    What patients say about us

    Here's some kind words from a few of our happy patients.

    It was my first time here, and I was blew away by the staff, these are the nicest people ever, I had a warm welcome upon entering and the hospitality did not stop. What a great staff. If you need a dentist I highly recommend you to give this business a try. My hygienist was the best, and I felt really comfortable with her. I had went to a dentist up the road first and I wasn’t treated the same upon my entry to their establishment so I remembered talking to a ladie that worked at this dental office sometime back, I drove down the street until I saw this office and I’m so glad I did. Thanks for a great dental experience.

    I absolutely love Michelle. If you are looking for a dental hygienist, pick her! Dr Parkerson is very thorough and I am pleased with the abutment and crown she placed. She was very caring and made sure I was not in any pain during the procedure. They are the best!
