Facial Filler & Botox
New York, NY

Mature couple smiling with arms holding each otherUsing facial filler and Botox® we can reduce fine lines and relax muscles, enhancing your look and reducing pain. There are multiple reasons a patient may seek treatment with fillers or Botox. It can be used to smooth areas of skin, helping you appear younger and fresher, it can add body and plumpness and it can be used to lessen pain due to TMJ dysfunction, migraines or muscle tension. Our staff at Manhattan Maxillofacial Surgery Group can review your options and discuss how treatment can help during your consultation.

As an Oral and Maxillofacial surgery, our area of work extends to the entire facial area, not just the mouth. Our doctors are skilled in both restorative and cosmetic procedures including the placement of facial fillers and Botox.

What is Botox®?

Botox® is a highly purified toxin that is injected in tiny does. Injecting a toxin may sound unusual, but used in very tiny amounts, that is then mixed with saline, Botox has been found to have highly successful results with an extremely low rate of complication. Dr. Del Valle and Dr. Shahgoli use Botox for both cosmetic and medical purposes. Botox can spread throughout your body. Botox has been found to be effective with:

•  Reducing Lines: One of the most discussed reasons for Botox is its ability to remove wrinkles by temporarily paralyzing the muscles. This is highly effective in filling in crows feet, creases between the eyes and other visible signs of age.
•  Reducing Facial Pain: Patients who suffer from TMJ dysfunction, which is caused by jaw alignment issues, can experience pain in their eyebrows, cheek bones, jaw joints, migraines and even their ears. The process of identifying and treating jaw alignment can be long. Botox injections relax the muscles that are strained or inflamed and provide some relief while working on the fix.
•  Reducing Muscle Spasm: Injections of Botox can reduce, or even stop, muscle spasms by blocking the nerve signals to the muscle. This treatment has been used to relieve severe muscle spasms around the eyes and in the neck in addition to other areas of the body.
•  Reducing a Gummy Smile: A gummy smile is a reference to displaying too much of the mouth when smiling, the smile is too large. We can relax the muscle that runs from the side of the nose to the upper lip. This treatment has also been found to be effective in reducing gum disease because it keeps the gums more covered by the lip tissue.

Botox is a safe and effective treatment, however, we do not recommend it for patients who are pregnant or nursing, or who are currently battling an infection anywhere in their body.

Dermal Filler

Dermal or facial fillers are different from Botox injections. Botox is used to freeze muscles and fillers are used to plump up and add fullness to the face, lips and areas of depression. Fillers can smooth skin helping you look younger and more fresh..
