Facial Aesthetics


Are you looking to freshen up your look by smoothing fine lines and wrinkles? Maybe you have thought about bringing volume back to areas where it was lost. Or perhaps, you suffer from facial or jaw pain? Products offered at our office such as Botox® or Juvederm may be able to help you.

These days Botox® is used in many ways in both dentistry and medicine. Some of the ways Botox® can be used are smoothing fine lines and wrinkles, alleviating facial/jaw pain from clenching, grinding or over active face muscles and relieving pain/discomfort associated with non-vascular related migranes.  Call or email the office to book a free consultation with Dr. Goguen to see if Botox is right for you.

Botox® - is the trade name for Botulinum Toxin, a neurotoxin in the form of a purified protein. The mechanism of action for Botulinum Toxin (Botox) is really quite simple; it is injected into facial muscles but really doesn’t affect the muscle at all. Botulinum Toxin (Botox) works by blocking the transmitters between the motor nerves that innervate the muscle.

Xeomin(incobotulinumtoxinA) - is a neurotoxin approved by the US FDA for the treatment of moderate to severe frown lines in adults. Xeomin is made of a protein purified from the bacterium Clostridium botulinum. Botulinum Toxins block nerve activity in the muscles, causing a temporary reduction in muscle activity, thus a reduction in wrinkles and lines.

Juvederm® -JUVÉDERM® is the #1 selling collection of hyaluronic acid fillers in the United States. Each product in the JUVÉDERM® collection of fillers adds volume to a different area of the face - without surgery. All JUVÉDERM® fillers are a smooth, crystal-clear gel that are administered by injection in your aesthetic healthcare provider's office. Different formulations are approved to either lift cheeks, smooth parentheses lines, smooth vertical lip lines or plump the lips. The results are subtle and long lasting. Click on this link to see before and after photos from their website  - Juvederm®.
