Millions of people use BOTOX®, JUVÉDERM®, and Restylane® to achieve a more relaxed and smooth facial appearance, while still having the freedom of expression. Combined this with teeth whitening, Invisalign, or porcelain veneers, you will quickly experience a much more youthful appearance.
An attractive smile can significantly improve your image and self-confidence and involves much more than your teeth – a great looking smile includes the entire face. Beautiful teeth surrounded by deep facial folds, volume deficient lips or “smokers” lines is like a picture with an ugly frame. A beautiful face with crooked yellow teeth is a gorgeous frame surrounding an ugly picture. Total facial esthetics will bring out your full beauty potential.

BOTOX® is an FDA approved purified protein which is injected into targeted muscles and temporarily blocks nerve signals that cause muscle movements, essentially relaxing the muscle which reduces or eliminates fine lines and wrinkles.
Within 7-10 days of the BOTOX® injection, the treated facial muscles become temporarily relaxed, causing the overlying skin to lay flat and unwrinkled. The untreated facial muscles contract in a normal fashion allowing facial expressions to be unaffected.
BOTOX® injections only take a few minutes and will remain effective for 3-4 months.
BOTOX® Treatment For TMJ/TMD
If you have TMJ/TMD symptoms, headaches, or migraine pain, and your healthcare professional determines you are a candidate for this treatment, your specific diagnosis and the severity of your condition will dictate how much BOTOX® you will require.
BOTOX® is injected into the affected head and neck muscles. BOTOX® blocks nerve signals that cause muscle movements, essentially relaxing the muscles and reducing or eliminating facial pain.
BOTOX® injections take only a few minutes and will remain effective for up to 3 months. Pain symptoms may return 3 months after your initial treatment. With a series of treatments, BOTOX® can retrain your muscles to relax and you will notice your symptoms resolve for longer periods of time.
You will also notice your facial esthetics will considerably improve. Facial wrinkles will disappear following the treatment. The jaw may even slim down, creating a beautiful esthetic effect.
About Dermal Fillers
As skin ages, it begins to lose collagen filled with hyaluronic acid (HA). Collagen and HA add structure and volume to the face, therefore a lack of HA causes the skin to sag and wrinkle. That’s where dermal fillers come into play.
Dermal fillers are smooth injectable gels made from naturally occurring hyaluronic acid. Dermal fillers add volume to these depleted areas to restore your face to a more natural youthful appearance.
In just one short appointment, you will immediately see the esthetic results which last up to six months.
