Botox and Dermal Filler

Dr. Yvette Carrillo of The Perio Pocket - SD Implants & Aesthetics is certified by the American Academy of Facial Esthetics to perform Botox and dermal filler injections. She continues to grow and expand her knowledge in injectable therapy to improve her patient’s quality of life.

What Is Botox?

Botulinum toxin is a treatment that helps muscles to relax by temporarily interfering with nerve signals that cause muscles to tighten. If facial muscles pull your skin into a wrinkled shape, Botox can produce the appearance of smoother skin. Botox has made its mark in dentistry by being used in the treatment of TMJ, migraine headaches, and gummy smiles.

Many people are familiar with Botox as a brand name, Dr. Yvette Carrillo not only offers Botox, but other botulinum treatments such as Xeomin. Both have unique benefits and she decides which to use depending on patient's individual needs. If you are interested in learning more about botulinum toxin, contact Dr. Yvette Carrillo below for your consultation.

What Are Dermal Fillers?

Dermal fillers are injectable hyaluronic acid fillers that add fullness and shape to deficient areas of the skin such as lips and cheeks.

Why Do People Get Dermal Fillers?

Like Botox, dermal fillers are popular cosmetic facial treatments. People get dermal fillers to achieve a smoother, fuller look for their faces. Botox and dermal filler treatments reduce or eliminate facial wrinkles or creases to create a more youthful appearance.

In dentistry, dermal fillers are used to improve areas around the mouth for patients suffering from a “gummy smile.” Reconstruction of the lip volume contributes to proper speech as well as retention of removable dentures. Fillers may also be used to reduce unesthetic black triangles formed between teeth.

As a periodontist and implant surgeon specializing in the soft tissue, Dr. Yvette is certified by the American Academy of Facial Esthetics in dermal filler injectables. She continues to grow her knowledge by taking the latest injectable training courses. If you would like to know more, contact our office: The Perio Pocket, SD Implants and Aesthetics.
