See the before and after photos below, and you’ll agree that your smile is more than just your teeth. A beautiful smile surrounded by wrinkled skin is like a beautiful painting in a terrible frame. Dentists are by far the best-trained health care professionals for administering Botox and dermal fillers to the head and neck area, and dentists are the most experienced professionals in providing anesthesia to the cheeks and lips, areas that sometimes benefit from some numbing for these procedures.
Trained at the University of Tennessee by the American Academy of Facial Esthetics, Dr. Carroll offers Botox®, Xeomin®, Juvéderm® and other facial enhancement materials and procedures to compliment your smile by reducing skin folds and wrinkles, and by creating more pleasing lips to frame that pleasing smile.
By using safe and pure brand name products purchased directly from the American manufacturers, these treatments take less than an hour to produce beautiful results that last for months. Below are some typical before and after examples of what can be done with Botox, to relax over-stressed muscles, and dermal fillers, to fill in creases and deep wrinkles, and to enhance the lips.
These procedures can cost from about $100 to over $1,000, depending on how many problems need correction, and how severe the wrinkling is. Most of the Botox and filler procedures are considered to be for “cosmetic” purposes and are not covered by insurance. We offer FREE CONSULTATIONS on these facial enhancements, so it costs nothing to find out what we can do your you, and what it will cost.
Lips enhanced with Belotero Balance or Juvéderm Ultra, popular dermal fillers. Some people simply have naturally thin lips and just want to achieve a fuller appearance. Other people have noticed their lips thinning over time and may also have seen vertical lip lines become more noticeable. We can add just a little filler for a subtle change, or more, if that’s what you want. These results can last 6 to 12 months, but can also be reversed overnight if you change your mind!
Three examples of using Xeomin to relax over-used muscles, resulting in slimming of the face. This treatment, whose results last about 3 months, can also reduce heavy nighttime teeth grinding that causes wear on teeth and facial pain.
Radial lip lines, often called smoker’s lines, water bottle lines, pucker lines, or even bar codes, can often benefit from Botox treatments to relax the muscles that draw the lips to create the lines. Some deeper creases my also need dermal fillers to lift them. Some of these deeper lines may not completely go away, but we can make them a lot less noticeable.
