What is Botox?
Botox is a product that uses a controlled form of the botulinum toxin to help halt unnecessary muscle movements. This product has a number of cosmetic and therapeutic uses. Cosmetically, Botox injections are used to stop the unconscious muscles movements in the forehead and around the eyes that can lead to fine lines and wrinkles. When these movements are halted, the skin begins to smooth back out, appearing more youthful and healthy. Patients who suffer from TMJ dysfunction may also want to consider receiving Botox injections. These therapeutic treatments stop unnecessary muscle movements around the temporomandibular joints (TMJ) that can lead to discomfort or strain of these jaw joints. Regular Botox treatments for TMJ dysfunction improve comfort and range of movement for many patients.

What is Juvederm?
As we age, our body ceases to produce collagen and elastin that gives youthful skin a smooth, flawless appearance. To improve the appearance of skin that has started to sag or crease, a dermal filler may be recommended. Juvederm is a name brand dermal filler. These treatments are used to improve the appearance, volume, and elasticity of the skin. The dermal filler is injected below the skin. Then, the dentist carefully smooths and shapes the material, leaving you with a flawless appearance. In most cases, dermal fillers are recommended for the fine lines and wrinkles around the mouth.
How Long Will My Results Last?
To maintain results, you’ll need to partner with our team to create a retreatment plan. Everyone responds differently to these treatments, but typically, results need to be touched up two to three times each year. For those patients receiving Botox Therapeutic injections, more frequent retreatment may be necessary initially to help you achieve the optimal level of comfort and function.
