Noticeable results, no surgery, and no recovery time – discover the benefits of Botox® at Kluth-Richardson Family & Cosmetic Dentistry.
There are many different reasons that patients choose to receive Botox treatment, from simply wanting to remove fine lines and wrinkles to addressing more severe conditions such as TMJ and chronic migraines.
What is Botox® Cosmetic and how does it work?
Botox® Cosmetic is a neurotoxin that is injected into muscle tissue, but acts upon the nerve impulses affecting the action of the muscle. Botox relaxes the muscles beneath the skin, so that fine lines and wrinkles become less visible, giving the skin a healthy, more youthful appearance.
Botox injections are quick and relatively painless. Depending on each individual case, the results can last between one and six months. Treatment is temporary, and once the Botox begins to wear off, the skin will return to the way it looked before treatment.
Botox can also be used to relieve symptoms of TMJ related to muscle tension. Botox is used to reduce the amount of stress placed on the teeth and jaw so that patients can begin to feel some relief.

As your skin ages, it begins to lose collagen filled with hyaluronic acid (HA). Collagen and HA add structure and volume to the face, therefore a lack of HA causes skin to sag and wrinkle – that’s where dermal fillers can be beneficial in fighting off the aging process.
Dermal fillers are smooth injectable gels containing hyaluronic acid (HA) which is a naturally occurring substance that delivers volume to the skin. Dermal fillers work in a restorative manner to replace and add volume to weakened facial features.
Our office offers several different fillers based on the area being treated and the patient’s desired result.
How long does filler last?
The results from filler injections can last for up to a year. The lifespan of filler treatment is dependent on the body part being treated. It is not a permanent solution, so the material will naturally be broken down and be reabsorbed by your body over time.
Does filler work immediately?
You will be able to see your results immediately! You may experience some minor swelling or bruising but this should resolve after a week.
What is the process like?
The procedure itself will last 15-30 minutes, depending on how many syringes are needed and which parts of your face are being treated. A typical session uses 1 or 2 syringes of filler.
