Smile enhancement is an outpatient procedure that improves the appearance of your skin. During treatment, your Bogota Dental Center provider administers aesthetic injections between your eyebrows and on the outer edges of your eyes.
When the medication enters your body, it stops nerve signals from reaching the muscles in your face. That causes your muscles to relax, minimizing the appearance of wrinkles and making your skin appear smoother.
Make an appointment for smile enhancement at Bogota Dental Center if you have dynamic wrinkles. Dynamic wrinkles occur due to facial movements, like smiling, frowning, and squinting. Often, they occur on the forehead, between the eyebrows, and on the outsides of the eyes.
Before recommending smile enhancement, your Bogota Dental Center provider reviews your medical records and asks about your goals for treatment.
During the consultation, let your provider know if you take supplements or prescription medication, like blood thinners. Certain drugs can interfere with your results, so your provider might ask you to stop taking them in the days prior to treatment.
The team at Bogota Dental Center performs smile enhancement during an in-office visit.
First, your provider cleans your skin and applies a topical anesthetic. After the anesthesia sets in, your provider administers a series of aesthetic injections. The number of injections that you receive depends on your goals. The process takes about 10 minutes and doesn’t require any downtime.
After smile enhancement, avoid rubbing, massaging, or applying pressure to the treated areas. You should also avoid lying down or bending over for at least three hours.
When the anesthesia wears off, you might experience redness, bruising, or sensitivity. These symptoms should subside within a few days, but if they persist, contact the team at Bogota Dental Center right away.
The results of smile enhancement treatments aren’t permanent, but they last an average of 3-4 months*. To maintain smooth and wrinkle-free skin, the team at Bogota Dental Center recommends scheduling follow-up visits every few months.
