Botox has been FDA approved in the US for more than 17 years to treat a variety of medical conditions. In our office, we utilize Botox to treat muscle strain that leads to clenching and grinding as well as for the treatment of migraines. Since Botox produces a relaxation of specific treated muscles, a nice side-effect is diminished wrinkles in the areas treated. Utilizing Botox in very specific muscle groups can help patients with TMJ symptoms and can help eliminate migraine headache pain.
Juvederm is one dermal filler that is used in our office to help finish a patient’s smile. A smile sometimes isn’t complete until the framework (our lips and cheeks) also looks great. Dermal fillers are utilized in our office to create shaplier lips, eliminate wrinkling around the lips, and recontour deflated cheeks and nasolabial folds.
