BOTOX® and dermal fillers are two cosmetic treatments that non-surgically enhance the face features and restore a youthful appearance. If you are dissatisfied with fine lines and wrinkles, or simply need a facial rejuvenation, BOTOX and dermal fillers can safely restore vibrancy to your smile and appearance. Dr. Brian Gilbert is trained and qualified to administer BOTOX injections and dermal fillers, both cosmetically and as treatment for TMJ disorder. With nearly 30 years of experience as a cosmetic dentist, Dr. Gilbert is extensively trained to correct functional concerns, while prioritizing aesthetic outcomes and long-term improvements to your smile and the appearance of your face as a whole.
Repeated muscle movement, such as when frowning or squinting, will over time cause fine lines and wrinkles to appear around the face. BOTOX injections help to reduce muscle activity in these areas, smoothing the skin and softening facial features. By targeting muscles, crow’s feet, frown lines, and wrinkles are temporarily reduced.
RADIESSE®, JUVÉDERM®, and Belotero® are all facial fillers used to rejuvenate the face by adding volume under the skin. Injected under local anesthetic with a tiny needle, dermal fillers enhance and improve fallen or sunken areas of the forehead, temples, nose, cheeks, lips, and lower eyelids, and smooth wrinkles, fine lines, and acne scars.
Chronic tooth grinding and clenching (bruxism) can lead to tension and overuse of the muscles in the face. Bruxism is closely associated with TMJ disorder, resulting in chronic headaches or migraines, jaw stiffness or pain, facial pain, and difficulty opening the mouth wide. BOTOX injections into these facial muscles help to temporarily decrease their activity, reducing their conscious and unconscious movements. BOTOX oftentimes can help patients find relief when other conventional measures have been unsuccessful.
