Noticeable results, no surgery, and no recovery time – discover the benefits of Botox® at our practice.
There are many different reasons that patients choose to receive Botox® treatment, from wanting to remove fine lines and wrinkles to treating more severe conditions such as TMJ and chronic migraines. Botox® can relieve any of the symptoms that make you feel less confident, and help you achieve a more youthful, radiant appearance.
What is Botox® Cosmetic?
Botox® is a medication, specifically botulinum toxin A, that can only be prescribed to you by a healthcare professional. It is used as a temporary treatment for patients between the ages of 18 and 65. Botulinum toxin type A treatments are quick and comfortable, and within hours you will begin to notice a difference in the way your skin looks and feels.
How does Botox® work?
Botulinum toxin type A uses a special protein to block overactive nerve impulses, restricting muscle contractions. In doing so, botulinum toxin type A helps to relax the muscles beneath the skin, so that fine lines and wrinkles become less visible, giving the skin a healthy, more youthful appearance.
Depending on each individual case, the results can last between one and six months. Treatment is temporary, and once the botulinum toxin type A begins to wear off, the skin will return to the way it looked before treatment.
botulinum toxin type A is also used to relieve symptoms of TMJ, as well as provide comfort to patients receiving dental implants. In each case, botulinum toxin type A is used to reduce the amount of stress placed on the teeth and jaw so that patients feel comfortable and confident.

What is filler and would I benefit from it?
Dr. Domm also offers facial filler to enhance your lips. It instantly adds volume in and around the lips, all with minimal to no downtime and a natural look. Filler can also be used for your nasolabial folds, which are common wrinkles that form alongside your inner cheeks. Filler in your nasolabial folds works by “plumping” the area of skin so that fine lines and deep wrinkles appear smoother.
How much is filler?
The cost for one filler syringe is $650. Depending on your goals, this is an average dosage for lips or nasolabial folds. Below is a case that Dr. Domm treated for lip filler.
