Botox and Dermal Fillers
Our doctors are licensed professionals extensively trained in facial anatomy and injection techniques of areas in and around the mouth. Botox and Juvederm therapy is part of their area of expertise.
Botox injections are the most commonly performed minimally invasive cosmetic procedure in North America. Botox is a safe, proven, and effective treatment in fighting the signs of aging. Botox treatments work by reducing frown lines, crow’s feet, the horizontal lines on the forehead, and vertical lip lines sometimes caused by animated facial expressions like smiling, laughing, or frowning. The result is a natural, more youthful, less stressful expression to your face. The injections require no downtime, no anesthesia, and you will see amazing results in a few days. A full effect will take up to two weeks, but the results will last from three to six months. Botox can also be used in treatment of TMJ and associated pain.
The loss of volume in and under the skin is a visible sign of aging. Fillers can reduce lines, restore volume, and contour facial folds. Juvederm dermal fillers fill in wrinkles and folds and plump up thin and aging lips with a biocompatible gel substance injected below the surface of the skin. It is made from hyaluronic acid, which is a naturally occurring substance in your skin that helps provide fullness and elasticity. With Juvederm the results are immediate with minimal downtime. Most patients need one treatment to achieve optimal wrinkle smoothing, and the results last up to 6 months or more. Juvederm can be used virtually anywhere on the face, with most success in the lips, nasolabial folds (lines from the nose to the corners of the mouth), and the marionette lines (lines from the corners of the mouth downward to the jawline.
