As a member of the American Academy of Facial Esthetics, Dr. Farmer is clinically trained and experienced in the art of these nonsurgical treatments, which can be used to smooth fine lines and wrinkles for a more youthful appearance, or for headaches and facial pain that is sometimes caused as a result of clenching and grinding teeth.

How Does Botox Work?
Botox is injected into one or more of the facial muscles with the purpose of temporarily relaxing them so that they cannot contract and cause frown lines, forehead creases, crow’s feet and other facial lines and wrinkles. Paralyzing these muscles temporarily will also relieve pain caused by muscle spasms that occur as a result of teeth and jaw problems, like clenching and grinding of teeth.
What Botox Addresses
- Forehead creases or deep folds
- Crow’s feet
- Lines between the eyebrows (often called “11” lines)
- Lines around the nose and mouth
- Fine lines and wrinkles on the face and neck
- Tight jaw muscles that clench and/or grind, causing pain
What Happens During a Botox Treatment?
A Botox injection treatment takes 15 minutes or less. This pain-free procedure doesn’t require an anesthetic, though a numbing cream may be used on the injection site. A fine needle is used to inject the Botox into the facial muscles being treated. Results of the treatment can be experienced in as little as one to two days, as you will begin to notice a smoother, more wrinkle-free face and/or less tension and pain in your jaw and mouth. There will be some slight redness and swelling in the treatment area for the first day or two, but there is no downtime after treatment and patients can return to their daily lives immediately. The results of a Botox treatment typically last between three to six months, though in some cases the effects may last longer.
How Does Juvederm Work?
Juvederm® is a temporary dermal filler used to correct deep lines around the nose and mouth and stubborn forehead lines. This filler, which consists of a hyaluronic injectable gel with a smooth consistency, is injected into areas of facial tissue where moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds occur. Juvederm temporarily adds volume to the skin, which may give the appearance of a smoother surface, in turn giving the appearance of younger-looking skin.
What Juvederm Addresses
- Nasolabial folds (parentheses lines around the nose and mouth)
- Lines around the mouth
- Hollowness in the cheek area
- Thinness in the lips (lip augmentation)
What Happens During a Juvederm Treatment?
A Juvederm treatment is a quick and painless procedure done in 15 minutes or less. A numbing cream is applied, and then the smooth gel filler is injected into the treatment area or areas using a fine needle. There may be a mild amount of swelling or puffiness after the treatment, but this will dissipate in the first day or two. The results of the treatment are noticeable the same day of treatment. You will see an instant improvement in your face, as wrinkles and folds will appear to have vanished, leaving you with a smoother, yet natural-looking face that looks several years younger. These results typically last between three and 12 months.
