Botox® Cosmetic and Dysport®
Botox is the most commonly performed cosmetic procedure in the United States, with over 6.5 million procedures done in 2014 alone (Plastic Surgery Statistics Report). It can safely eliminate wrinkles by temporarily relaxing the muscles that cause wrinkles. The most common facial areas treated with Botox are the frown lines between the eyes, forehead lines, and crow’s feet. Other facial areas that can be improved with Botox®/Dysport® include the chin, “bunny lines” on the bridge of the nose, vertical lines around the lips, jaw muscles, and in the neck. Our doctors understand the science and art of using Botox and Dysport and customize a treatment plan for each patient with the aim of achieving natural-appearing beauty.
As dental professionals, we are highly trained in the anatomy of the head and neck as well as the oral cavity. We inject patients at almost every dental procedure and are extremely comfortable with painless and precise injection techniques. We pay close attention to the nerves, arteries and muscles of the face and work with exceptional accuracy. Whether we're restoring a patient's front teeth during a smile makeover or injecting Botox into the forehead to reduce wrinkles, our goal is the same – to produce natural looking, esthetically pleasing results.
Dr. Lital Kathein and Dr. Jessica Wyatt are expert providers of Botox and Dysport. Dr. Kathein is a Faculty Member of the American Academy of Facial Esthetics and travels around the U.S. teaching other medical practitioners on how to inject Botox.
Our doctors will carefully analyze your facial muscles and customize a Botox treatment just right for you. They follow a conservative approach and strongly believes in achieving subtle, natural looking results. Patients appreciate the fact that they leave the office looking better, not “fake” or “overdone”. The key is their aim for natural beauty. “I’m happiest when my patient looks totally natural and as if they had nothing done,” says Dr. Kathein.
