Botox® Cosmetic is a simple, non-surgical treatment that can temporarily smooth moderate to severe lines and wrinkles in the glabella region (area between the eyebrows), forehead, crows feet (area around the eyes) and perioral area (around the mouth). Botox® can also be used to create brow lifts, raise the corners of the mouth, and to correct moderate to severe “gummy smiles” in people 18 to 65 years of age. Results typically last approximately 4 months.
Botox® is not only used for achieving a fresh, youthful appearance, but also to remedy a number of medical issues, such as migraine headaches, jaw tension, or facial muscle spasms. TMJ disorder, teeth clenching, teeth grinding (Bruxism), and involuntary spastic muscles can all cause extreme pain, discomfort, and even embarrassment. Quick and painless BOTOX® injections deliver targeted treatment to relax the muscles that control the jaw, alleviating facial pain that disrupts daily life… Relief provided after just one treatment.
Absolute Smile also offers patients the latest techniques and treatments with Juvéderm™ or Radiesse® to correct, enhance, and/or restore volume, providing you with a more youthful and rested appearance. Juvéderm™ is a smooth consistency gel made of hyaluronic acid (HA), a naturally occurring substance in your skin, which helps to add and restore volume lost with age. Results can last 6 months to 1 year. Dermal Fillers can be used to treat the lips, nasolabial folds (smile lines), marionette lines, corners of mouth, scars, vertical lines above the lips, dimpled chin, jaw line, cheeks, and to correct smile and facial asymmetries.
Who Should Consider Facial Injectables?
Minimally invasive injectables are becoming an increasingly popular remedy for the appearance of aging skin. However, many people may not be aware of their other uses. Candidates for injectable treatments include:
- Men or women showing early signs of aging or volume loss who wish to remove lines and wrinkles in problem areas
- Patients who want to avoid invasive and expensive plastic surgery, while achieving similar results
- People who suffer from teeth grinding (Bruxism), clenching, jaw tension or TMJ disorder
- Patients who wish to lower a moderate to severe gummy smile
- Patients who may suffer from migraine headaches, or eye/facial muscle spasms
One of the many advantages of treatments in our dental office is the use of multiple anesthetic options. Patient comfort is important to us. For this reason, we offer prescription strength numbing cream and ice that can be applied to areas prior to treatments. We offer a modified dental block for painless injections in sensitive areas such as the lips. Dr. Eric Friedman can also perform this procedure with lidocaine diluted within the filler, providing maximum patient comfort every time.
