woman with beautiful skinMost people make resolutions every January with the ultimate goal of improving and enriching their lives. They might be determined to lose weight, save more money, or finally meet that special someone. No matter what you want to accomplish, self-confidence can help you get there! When you look your best, you’ll feel empowered to take on every day with a spring in your step and a smile on your face. If you want to love what you see in the mirror, visit your dentist to ask about Botox or Juvederm in Fairhope.


Botox in Fairhope is a type of neurotoxin that prevents unnecessary muscle movements, which in turn helps your skin to look smoother. It is effective at treating those pesky frown lines between your eyebrows, crow’s feet, and small wrinkles around your mouth. It can even be used to perform a lip flip that gives the illusion of a fuller, plumper pout.

A dentist in Fairhope is the perfect person to administer Botox because they have intimate knowledge of the facial structures. Their expertise enables them to inject the Botox in a way that minimizes the risk of complications and maximizes your results.

After you get a Botox injection, it may be several days to a couple of weeks before you are able to fully enjoy your new, smoother look. Side effects are usually minimal and might include redness, swelling, and minor bruising. Such symptoms should dissipate within a few days.


Collagen is a structural protein that is responsible for giving young people smooth skin. Unfortunately, collagen breaks down as we age, which can make skin sag. That is where dermal fillers, like Juvederm, come in. Juvederm is a brand name filler, made of hyaluronic acid gel, that gets injected beneath the skin. Then, the dentist shapes it in a way that produces the most aesthetically pleasing results. Usually, dermal fillers are best for smoothing out wrinkles around the mouth. They may also be used to give your face enhanced symmetry or to fill in sunken cheeks.

You’ll notice results from Juvederm right away, but it might take a few days for it to settle into its final position. Side effects, like inflammation and skin that feels firmer than usual, typically disappear within days after the treatment.

Maintain Your New Glow

Both Botox and Juvederm are temporary treatments; they must last for several months before you need retreatment to maintain your new look. When you have your initial injections, talk to your dentist about designing a plan for keeping your skin as fresh and smooth as possible.
