Cosmetic Botox and Fillers

We all want to look our best, and a healthy smile is an important part of the picture we present to the world. But there is no reason why a healthy smile can't be framed by a fresh , youthful face.

Botox Cosmetic is a product composed of a naturally purified protein that is injected into the muscles to reduce or eliminate the appearance of facial wrinkles. Botox Cosmetic can relax the facial muscles and soften the look of lines and wrinkles. It can be used on forehead and deep lines around the eyes and frown lines.In a few days you can see an improvement in wrinkles and begin to let the inner, more relaxed and youthful look shine through. It  can rejuvenate your look, renew your confidence and boost your self-esteem. Application of Botox is a fast, non-surgical procedure with no downtime and results can last up to three to four months. In some cases, injections of Botox  can gradually retrain facial muscles to relax and minimize lines and wrinkles for extended periods of time.

 

What To Expect From BOTOX Treatment

Before we begin, Dr. Martin will talk to you about your goals, the procedure itself, and the results you can expect. As part of her dental training, Dr.Martin has studied the entire anatomy of of the head, neck and oral cavity extensively. She has also completed advanced training in the administration of Botox injections, making her highly qualified to deliver comfortable Botox injections with precision and accuracy.

We apply topical anesthetic prior to injections so you would feel very comfortable. It can take 3-5 days to notice results as your facial muscles relax, but in two weeks you will see the full effects of treatment and there is no worry that your face will look "frozen", because surrounding muscles that are not treated will contract normally, leaving your facial expressions with a natural appearance.

 

Dermal Fillers

Juvederm is the only FDA approved dermal filler to be used to smooth wrinkles around the nose and mouth. Its composed of a natural substance found in the body. As we age we lose volume and elasticity on our face. Juvederm can be used to fill deep lines around the nose and mouth, it can also be used on lips for fuller, plumper appearance. With Juvederm dermal filler, you can make subtle changes to your facial appearance to achieve long lasting, more youthful looking results. 

Juvederm is a clear gel composed of hyaluronic acid, a natural substance that is found throughout your body. The most common areas for treatment are the lips, the nasolabial folds (from the root of the nose to the angle of your mouth) and cheeks.

As we age, UV, sunlight and environmental stressors cause volume loss and sunken look in the appearance of our skin, skin deflates and loses its supple quality. By using Juvederm we can replace what has been lost, restoring a youthful appearance. The effects of Juvederm typically last 6-9 months.
