There’s no way to prevent wrinkles and fine lines entirely, but facial rejuvenation can significantly minimize their appearance. At Blue Palm Dentistry, cosmetic and general dentist Davide Gottardi, DMD, offers several types of facial rejuvenation, including Botox®, Dysport®, dermal fillers, and platelet-rich plasma (PRP).

Facial Rejuvenation Q & A

What is facial rejuvenation?

Facial rejuvenation uses minimally invasive treatments like injectable neuromodulators and dermal fillers to minimize the appearance of age-related dermatological problems, including sagging skin, wrinkles, fine lines, and crow’s feet.

At Blue Palm Dentistry, Dr. Gottardi tailors facial rejuvenation to individual needs. Following an in-office consultation and a discussion of what you like and don’t like about your appearance, he can make recommendations for treatment.

What types of treatment does facial rejuvenation provide?

At Blue Palm Dentistry, Dr. Gottardi offers several types of facial rejuvenation, including:

Injectable neuromodulators (Botox® and Dysport®)

Injectable neuromodulators help minimize the appearance of wrinkles that occur due to repeated facial motions like squinting, frowning, or smiling. Once neuromodulators enter your body, they prevent nerve signals from reaching the muscles in your face. As your muscles relax, your skin appears smoother and more youthful.

Dermal fillers

Dermal fillers are a type of injectable that contains hyaluronic acid. Dermal fillers address lost facial volume.

As you get older, your skin loses collagen and elastin, causing it to wrinkle, sag, and fold. Dermal fillers help plump up your skin. Specifically, they improve the appearance of wrinkles and lines around your nose, mouth, and lips.

Platelet-rich plasma (PRP)

If you have a combination of dynamic wrinkles and lost facial volume, Dr. Gottardi might recommend platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy. PRP is a type of regenerative medicine that uses natural growth factors to improve the appearance of your skin. The process is quick, pain-free, and encourages your body’s natural healing process.

Is facial rejuvenation safe?

Facial rejuvenation is safe and usually well-tolerated. Following treatment, it’s normal to experience some mild swelling or bruising, but any discomfort should subside within a day. There’s no downtime or recovery period, so you can return to work and other activities immediately following your appointment.

What type of facial rejuvenation will benefit me?

To determine the type of facial rejuvenation that will most benefit you, Dr. Gottardi asks about your goals for treatment and examines your facial features, including the location and position of wrinkles, fine lines, or sagging skin. After gathering this information, he can develop a custom care plan that aligns with your budget and needs.
