Owasso Dermal Fillers
Are you searching for an anti-aging aesthetic facial treatment? Dermal fillers are a popular method for reducing fine lines and creating a youthful appearance. But as a dentist who balances aesthetics with natural health, Dr. Heng Lim offers a more natural alternative to fillers which can be even more effective.
SmoothLase Facial Aesthetic Treatment
Dr. Lim can provide you with an FDA-approved treatment called SmoothLase. This procedure involves the non-surgical application of a warm gentle laser to the tissues in your face to bio-stimulate collagen remodeling.
SmoothLase works by triggering the process of new collagen formation in your body. Collagen is a natural substance that is present in your body just under the outer layer of skin, and which is essential for skin hydration and elasticity. Dr. Lim will treat your skin from the inside out; he will direct the mild laser beam from inside your mouth, aiming it towards the areas you want to treat. This technique allows the laser to reach the deep layers of skin for a profound effect that addresses the issues at their source.
The laser treatment can help to tighten, tone, and lift skin in your “smile zone” including your mouth, cheeks, chin, jawline, and the area beneath your eyes. It’s effective on light to medium wrinkles.
During and for a short time after your treatment, you may experience some warmth and tingling in the treated areas. It’s also normal to have some tenderness and mild swelling in the treated areas. This is not an uncomfortable sensation, however, and it can actually help the treated areas to look and feel immediately plumped and rejuvenated. The real effects of SmoothLase, however, appear about three weeks after your treatment session when your body produces fresh layers of collagen in the treated areas. This gentle laser treatment is far more comfortable than any surgical or injectable anti-aging facial treatment.
How many treatment sessions you need will depend on your age at the time you begin treatment and on the level of results that you wish to achieve. Treatments are typically spaced three or more weeks apart to gauge your body’s response to the previous treatment.
Why Choose SmoothLase Instead of Dermal Fillers?
Here are a few reasons to consider SmoothLase:
No surgery. There are no incisions, no risk of infection, no postoperative discomfort, and no recovery periods for treatment with SmoothLase. The laser is gentle, precise, and non-invasive.
No chemicals. Injecting substances under your skin—even “natural” ones—always carries some risk. Laser treatment does not introduce anything foreign to your body but stimulates natural processes to create the desired outcome.
No impaired muscle function. Some popular anti-aging treatments use agents that paralyze the surrounding muscles in order to smooth wrinkles. These treatments can have some unexpected effects on muscle function, however. There is no such risk when using a laser to treat wrinkles, and you won’t end up with a “frozen” or “fake” smile stuck on your face.
Treatment for the cause, not the symptoms. Dermal fillers and other similar treatments plump out wrinkles and sagging skin immediately. But instead of delivering rapid results that quickly fade, SmoothLase helps your body to fill out those wrinkles on its own with results that last much longer. In fact, when coupled with a healthy lifestyle, regular touch-ups with this treatment can even help you prevent future wrinkles.
A natural youthful appearance. Skin elasticity and hydration are the key to looking younger. Instead of making you look “done-up,” SmoothLase encourages the growth of healthy tissues in a natural process that is the closest you can come to turning back time on the age of your face.
A healthy lifestyle enhances the results. Dermal fillers and other injectable treatments only last as long as your metabolism allows. This means that the healthier you are, the faster your body breaks down the filler agents. SmoothLase treatments, on the other hand, work best when they are paired with a healthy lifestyle that promotes collagen development.
Treatment by a professional with advanced knowledge of facial anatomy and function. When it comes to facial aesthetics, you can’t get treatment any safer than that which an experienced dentist can provide. Dentists are experts in facial anatomy, and Dr. Lim is a dentist who has trained extensively with experts in the field of facial beauty.
