Botox is the most commonly performed cosmetic procedure in the United States, with over 6.5 million procedures done in 2014 alone (Plastic Surgery Statistics Report). It can safely eliminate wrinkles by temporarily relaxing the muscles that cause wrinkles. The most common facial areas treated with Botox are the frown lines between the eyes, forehead lines, and crow’s feet. Other facial areas that can be improved with Botox®/Dysport® include the chin, “bunny lines” on the bridge of the nose, vertical lines around the lips, jaw muscles, and in the neck. Our doctors understand the science and art of using Botox and Dysport and customize a treatment plan for each patient with the aim of achieving natural-appearing beauty.
As dental professionals, we are highly trained in the anatomy of the head and neck as well as the oral cavity. We inject patients at almost every dental procedure and are extremely comfortable with painless and precise injection techniques. We pay close attention to the nerves, arteries and muscles of the face and work with exceptional accuracy. Whether we're restoring a patient's front teeth during a smile makeover or injecting Botox into the forehead to reduce wrinkles, our goal is the same – to produce natural looking, esthetically pleasing results.
Our doctors will carefully analyze your facial muscles and customize a Botox treatment just right for you. They follow a conservative approach and strongly believes in achieving subtle, natural looking results. Patients appreciate the fact that they leave the office looking better, not “fake” or “overdone”. The key is their aim for natural beauty.
Restylane is a clear gel formulation of hyaluronic acid that is specifically formulated to act like your body's own naturally produced hyaluronic acid, helping to visibly correct moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, including the lines that run from your nose toward the corners of your mouth (nasolabial folds) and the lines that run from the corners of your mouth toward the chin (marionette lines).
Additionally, Restylane and Restylane® Silk are FDA-approved for lip enhancement in patients over the age of 21 and are uniquely formulated to give your lips fullness and definition.

Dentists are wonderful injectors because of their extensive knowledge of the anatomy of the head and neck. We use needles to inject almost every patient in the dental practice. Most importantly, dentists know how to view their subject 3-dimensionally. When they are treating a tooth, even a 1mm change can make a huge impact on the overall appearance and function. The same applies to facial filler injections – tiny changes have a large impact on the overall look. Dentistry, like facial aesthetics, requires the practitioner to have an aesthetic eye, a steady hand, and an analytic approach.
Today, a significant part of Emerald Coast Dental Spa involves facial aesthetics procedures such as Botox and dermal fillers. We believe that the same skills that define an excellent dentist – attention to detail, knowledge of anatomy and function, and a gentle touch along with an artistic eye, are paramount for a good injector. We feel that becoming effective providers of facial aesthetic treatments has also been beneficial towards our development as dentists.
We are very knowledgeable and experienced in using a variety of different fillers. We can apply fillers in many ways, here are a few:
