What is Botox?

Botox is a nonsurgical treatment that helps temporarily improve moderate to severe frown lines, particularly between the brows, along the forehead and around the eyes. Botox is essentially a muscle relaxer, and is the #1 cosmetic procedure in the United States with a 97% patient satisfaction rate. Botox decreases the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, can cure certain types of migraines, fix a gummy smile, and help alleviate pain and tension associated TMJ/TMD and migraines. Botox is safe, fast and effective. Botox treatments usually take 10-14 days following injection for maximum results, and will typically last 3-4 months.

What are Dermal Fillers?

Dermal fillers, are injectable gel-like substances used to reduce wrinkles and/or create a fuller appearance in the face such as deep smile lines (known as nasolabial folds and Marionette lines), cheeks and lips. Dermal fillers such as Juvederm® used at Westlake Smile Studio, are primarily made up of hyaluronic acid, or HA, which is a naturally occurring substance in the body that delivers volume to the skin. Results are instant with dermal fillers and will last 6 months – 18 months, depending on the type of dermal filler used and injection site.
