Botox & Dermal Fillers

We are excited to announce that we offer dental Botox® and dermal filler injections! Our goal with dentistry is to correct our patients’ smiles. We achieve this goal not only with dental treatments, but also with facial treatments.

Along with dentistry, Dr. Regina Hendrix also focuses on facial aesthetics. She is able to enhance patients’ facial contours using Botox® and dermal filler injections.

Botox®

Botox® is a safe, effective FDA-approved medication most commonly used to eliminate facial wrinkles and frown lines by decreasing the movement of the muscles in the troubled areas. It is specially formulated with a purified protein, which relaxes the muscles when injected. Botox® can remove the wrinkles of time or make small improvements in an otherwise perfect face.

Getting a Botox® injection is a minimally invasive procedure that allows patients to return to normal daily activities immediately afterward. If necessary, a topical anesthesia can be used before the Botox® is injected under the skin using a small needle. The results can typically last anywhere from 3-5 months on average.

Dermal Fillers

Smoothing out folds and wrinkles can make an enormous difference in a person’s appearance and sometimes even make them look several years younger. Dermal fillers are used to help reverse the signs of aging and provide patients with a more natural, youthful appearance compared to surgical face lifts. Dermal fillers are used to:

•    Reduce or eliminate wrinkles
•    Reduce the appearance of scars
•    Enhance lips
•    Enhance the contours of the face

There are a number of types of dermal fillers available today, including:

•    Collagen Based Fillers (i.e. Zyplast and Cosmoderm)
•    Hyaluronic acid based fillers (i.e. Restylane® and Juvederm™)
•    Calcium hydroxyl apatite fillers (i.e. Radiesse®)

Dr. Regina Hendrix will work with you individually to determine the best filler for your individual circumstances. Usually, a topical ointment will be used to numb the targeted area. Then, using a small needle, the dermal filler will carefully be injected into each wrinkle or scar being treated.
Patients can expect some temporary, mild burning or stinging as the filler is being injected.

Dr. Regina Hendrix is highly trained and certified to administer Botox® and dermal filler injections, so you are sure to be in safe hands. If you are interested in learning more about Botox® and dermal filler injections, please contact us.
