Dr. Barton H. Foutz, DDS can provide a range of cosmetic injectables to complement your smile and visibly turn back the clock.

Botox, Dermal Fillers and Dentistry

Dr. Foutz often has to treat jaw pain and headaches.  Botulinum toxin is one of several therapeutic agents which he uses in these situations.  Botulinum toxin is an injectable neurotoxin, better known under brand names such as Botox Cosmetic®, Dysport®, and Xeomin®.

Botox can also be used in conjunction with “trigger point” therapy.  Trigger points are small knots or bands of muscle tissue that when pressed or stimulated radiate pain to other areas.  Dr Foutz can treat any trouble spots in the shoulder and neck that radiate to the head or jaw.  A proper head and neck examination is very important to the success of this type of treatment.

How It Works

Botox works as a pain reliever by binding to the cramped muscle fibers and causing them to relax.  The visible side-effect is a smoothing of fine lines and wrinkles in the overlying skin.  Conversely, when people get botox injections specifically for aesthetic reasons, they often find that their headaches disappear or are significantly reduced.  The aesthetic effects cannot be separated from the therapeutic effects.

The two areas that visibly benefit the most from botox injections are mild to moderate frown lines between the eyebrows, and the fine lines at the outside corners of the eye sometimes called “crows feet”.  Patients are always pleased with the smoother appearance around their eyes.

Dermal Fillers

Dermal fillers are sometimes used in conjunction with botox to achieve the patient’s overall goal of refreshing and renewing their appearance. Dr. Barton H. Foutz, DDS offers several brands of dermal fillers – Restylane, Belotero, Juvederm, Voluma, and Radiesse.  Dermal fillers help correct wrinkles and creases that are caused by a loss of underlying supporting tissue.  Smile lines around the nose and mouth can be reduced with dermal fillers.  Lip volume can also be enhanced with these products to help properly frame the aesthetic work we perform with a patient’s teeth and gum tissue.  There is little to no down time after these injections.

How Long Does It Last?

Botulinum toxin has an effect on the musculature for approximately 3 months.  Dermal fillers generally last about 6 months.  These times can vary depending on the person, their metabolism, and their lifestyle.

It makes perfect sense.  Dr. Foutz is trained in head and neck musculature and has extensive knowledge with performing injections in and around the face.  Plus he has an artist’s eye for aesthetics.  That makes Dr Foutz uniquely qualified to help you with both functional and aesthetic goals.

Cosmetic injectables are safe for most adults. Please call our office for information and a time to consult with Dr Foutz for your particular situation and desires.
