While you’re investing in a beautiful smile, shouldn’t you make sure the rest of your face looks just as good?
Florham Park dentist Dr. Raj Upadya is pleased to announce two new services: Botox® cosmetic and dermal fillers Restylane and Juvederm. Dr. Upadya is certified to offer Botox® treatments for cosmetic purposes as well as headache and trigger point therapy. We believe this is just one more way that we can help our patients look and feel their best.
Botox From The Dentist?
Though it may seem unconventional to see your dentist for Botox and dermal fillers, it is a surprisingly great choice. Just like a skilled facial plastic surgeon, Dr. Upadya understands the nuances of the delicate facial anatomy. He is highly experienced in making skillful injections to the face that are both comfortable and designed to produce natural looking results.
Dr. Raj Upadya is among the first dentists in the Florham Park area to be credentialed by the New Jersey Board of Dentistry to administer Botox and dermal filler injections. As part of the credentialing process, Dr. Upadya completed a Board-approved training course to learn how to safely and effectively administer treatment to our patients.
If you are interested in Botox or dermal fillers, simply let us know at your next appointment. Consultations for Botox and dermal fillers are complimentary. You will meet with Dr. Upadya, who will evaluate your facial condition and recommend the treatment that is best for you. In some cases, we may be able to perform treatment on the same visit, or we may schedule a separate appointment at a convenient time.
Botox has been FDA approved for over 20 years to temporarily treat wrinkles. Botox works by relaxing the muscles around the eyes and in the forehead that cause deep expression lines. Botox offers a great way to renew your appearance by reducing wrinkles and filling in the hollow, sunken facial skin that are often common signs of aging.
Results will continue to appear over the next week or two and most injectable treatments provide results that last anywhere from 3 to 12 months, and in some cases, longer. The effects can typically be maintained with follow-up treatments which can be conveniently scheduled during twice yearly preventive dental care.
Dr. Upadya offers Botox Cosmetic and the dermal fillers Restylane and Juvederm. After an initial consultation, Dr. Upadya will recommend which is best suited to your cosmetic goals or health needs.
Dr. Upadya will clean the area to be treated and apply a mild topical numbing agent if desired to ensure your comfort. The injections are quick and relatively painless.
After a treatment patients can return immediately to their normal routine, typically experiencing only mild redness or sensitivity at the injection site for a couple of hours.
Dr. Upadya is also certified to administer Botox injections to relieve chronic headaches and facial/TMJ pain. Because Botox is able to relax the targeted muscle area, it can often effectively treat jaw tightness and other symptoms associated with TMJ. Frequent headaches, teeth grinding, facial pain and sore jaw muscles are often the result of tension in the temporomandibular joint (TMJ) which can be temporarily relieved with Botox injections that are strategically placed by Dr. Upadya.
As a dentist, Dr. Upadya understands the muscular structure of the jaw and how it relates to the bite. This in depth knowledge enables him to offer this type of treatment to bring relief to patients who have either exhausted traditional options or need time to explore them.
