  • BOTOX® Cosmetic

    BOTOX® Cosmetic is a prescription medicine that is injected into muscles and used to temporarily improve the look of moderate to severe frown lines between the eyebrows (glabellar lines) and around the side of the eyes (crow’s feet lines) in adults for a short period of time.

  • Facial Fillers

    Dermal fillers use a smooth gel to instantly smooth away wrinkles around your mouth and nose. With just one treatment, you’ll get smooth and natural-looking results that can last up to a year.

  • Microdermabrasion

    Microdermabrasion involves gently sanding the skin to remove the thick, uneven outer layer. It can also improve the appearance of age spots, black heads, hyper pigmentation, discoloration, stretch marks, sun damage, light scarring, fine lines and wrinkles, enlarged pores, acne and acne scars.

  • Lip Augmentation

    Lip augmentation is a cosmetic procedure that results in fuller, plumper lips. This is most commonly accomplished with dermal fillers in the lips and around the mouth.

  • Chemical Peels

    Chemical peels are used to address skin discoloration, texture, and wrinkles. The chemicals in a chemical peel can vary from mild to deep exfoliating. The chemicals cause the skin to exfoliate and then peel off, revealing smoother, regenerated skin.

  • Chin Surgery

    Chin surgery is performed to reshape the chin. The chin can be enhanced with an implant, or bone from the jaw itself can be moved forward. Conversely, reduction surgery can be performed on the bone to reduce the projection of the chin.

  • Scar Revision

    The purpose of scar revision is to make scars less visible. Treatment options vary based on the type and degree of scarring and range from topical treatment to minimally invasive procedures to surgical revision with application of techniques in wound closure.

  • Radio Surgery

    Cosmetic radiofrequency or radio wave surgery is performed to treat minor skin conditions such as moles, warts, thread veins, or other lesions. Radio waves are used as opposed to a scalpel because there are minimal post-surgical marks and stitches are not required. There is also less bleeding, less pain, and less recovery time.

Frequently Asked Questions About Cosmetic Services

Is it safe to get Botox from an oral surgeon?

Yes, oral surgeons have considerable training in facial anatomy and musculature. This is crucial when it comes to Botox, because the injections target the muscles beneath the skin rather than the skin itself. Oral surgeons have an in-depth understanding of where Botox injections should be made to produce the best possible outcomes.

What exactly does Botox do?

Botox works by blocking the nerve signals that cause your facial muscles to move. The fine lines and wrinkles on your face are reduced because your facial muscles are frozen. The muscles will begin to move again when the Botox wears off in the months after your treatments.

Are dermal fillers better than Botox?

Botox and dermal fillers are both effective facial cosmetic treatments. Your treatment goals, the areas of your face that we're treating, and the results you want will all influence which option is best for you. A combination of dermal fillers and Botox may be used in different parts of the face in some cases.

What age should you get fillers?

Rather than treating fine lines and wrinkles that have already developed, fillers are increasingly being utilized to prevent the signs of aging from occurring in the first place. Patients in their mid-twenties or early-thirties may opt to use fillers for these reasons. That said, there is no "right" age for fillers; it all depends on your specific concerns and treatment goals.

What is lip augmentation?

Lip augmentation is a simple procedure that involves injecting dermal fillers into the lips to make them appear fuller.
