BOTOX can be used both for cosmetic and therapeutic reasons. Cosmetically, it can smooth wrinkles in the face, crows feet, and other fine lines. Therapeutically, BOTOX is routinely used for TMJ dysfunction that leads to stiffness and soreness of the muscles of the face and neck.
Results from BOTOX typically take 2-10 days and a detailed consult with Dr. Boles will help you determine if BOTOX if right for you.
Dermal fillers are commonly used to help treat wrinkles of the face, by “plumping” areas that have lost volume due to age, weight loss, or other various reasons. Results can be seen immediately and last up to one year. Common areas to use dermal fillers are lips, “smoker’s lines” around the mouth, and other deeper set wrinkles of the lower face. The results can be very subtle or more drastic, depending on patient desires, to achieve a natural, youthful appearance.
