Botox and Dermal Filters
Facial Aesthetics is the combination of art and science of facial injectables to get a younger, healthier, more confident face and smile. The dentists at All Smiles Dental have extensive knowledge of head and neck anatomy and understand the harmony between facial proportions and smile design. We have developed an eye for cosmetics in the oral-facial region and have extensive experience working with the lips and around the mouth. We are perfectionists that are used to working in this area and are extremely proficient at making procedures comfortable. Facial aesthetic aligns with our philosophy of doing minimally invasive procedures. The facial injectables that allow this miracle are Botox and Dermal fillers.
Botox treatments are the most commonly performed, minimally invasive cosmetic procedure in North America. There were over 2.5 million cosmetic procedures done with Botox last year with women accounting for 92% of the total cosmetic procedures done. The safety records of Botox treatment is nearly unparalleled by just about any other delivered medication on the market. Botox is used to treat glabellar lines and crow’s feet, forehead wrinkles, frown lines, brow/eyelid lifts, TMJ, and gummy smiles.
Dermal fillers, such as hyaluronic acids (Juvederm, Restylane) and calcium hydroxylapatite fillers (Radiesse), are commonly used to add volume to the face in the nasolabial folds, oral commissures, lips, and marionette lines. As we age, collagen is lost in these facial areas and these lines start to deepen. These dermal fillers are injected right under the skin to plump up these areas so that these lines are much less noticeable.
Dermal fillers are also used for lip augmentation and are used to correct for high lip line cases, uneven lips, and to make the peri-oral area more esthetic.
Are treatments painful?

How long will results last?

Procedures are brief and only take approximately 10-25 minutes depending on treatment(s). They are often considered “lunch break” treatments.

BOTOX is one of the safest cosmetic procedures available and its use has a history of more than 20 years. Only a small amount is needed to produce optimal results.
