Who wants to look beautiful?

I realize that’s a silly question because most people want to look beautiful. We’ve been providing beautiful smiles for many years in our practice. But now my team and I can provide another level for you to rediscover your youthful appearance by smoothing out or filling in some fine lines and wrinkles. I’ve recently become certified to provide facial rejuvenation using Botox and dermal fillers.

Botox® is a procedure which was developed to treat the visual signs of aging by reducing or removing wrinkles. It is considered a safe, effective way of treating aging skin. Common areas for injections include horizontal forehead furrows, vertical lines between the eyebrows and “crow’s feet” around the eyes. It has proven to be the best non-surgical form of facial rejuvenation and is capable of producing phenomenal improvements in your appearance.

Also, as we age, our skin volume diminishes causing wrinkles and folds to form especially in the delicate facial skin. Juvéderm® or Restylane®, both dermal fillers, are made of a naturally occurring substance in our skin called hyaluronic acid. This substance simply restores your skin to its more youthful volume, smoothing wrinkles away. The ultra smooth consistency of Juvéderm® and Restylane® provide a more natural look and feel to help correct facial wrinkles such as the “parentheses” (line between your mouth & nose), “marionette lines” (the downward turn at the corners of the lips), and can plump your lips for a fuller look.

Here’s a couple examples of what can be done. The first example is how Botox can relax the upper facial muscles and smooth out the lines that develop as we age. The second is one that demonstrates how the folds between the nose and corners of the lips can be removed. The lips have also been slightly enhanced as well.

We still create beautiful smiles with porcelain veneers, crowns, and whitening. Now we can get the skin to look just as good and frame those beautiful smiles. So give us a call at 614-792-1800 and we can schedule a consultation to see what’s possible.
