Botox & Derma Fillers

 

Dr. Marshall Gibbs is an accredited member of the American Academy of Facial Esthetics and is certified in Botox®, Dermal Fillers, and Frontline TMJ Orofacial Pain Therapy.

BOTOX® Cosmetic is the first and only FDA-approved prescription product that temporarily improves the appearance of both moderate to severe frown lines between the brows and moderate to severe crow’s feet in adults. BOTOX® (Botulinum toxin) is a purified substance that’s derived from bacteria.

Injections of botulinum toxin blocks muscular nerve signals, which then weakens the muscle so it can’t contract. The end result is diminished unwanted facial wrinkles.

Botulinum toxin can be used to help smooth:

  • Crow’s feet
  • Forehead furrows
  • Frown lines
  • Skin bands on the neck

Dermal fillers help to diminish facial lines and restore volume and fullness in the face.

As we age, our faces naturally lose subcutaneous fat. The facial muscles are then working closer to the skin surface, so smile lines and crow’s feet become more apparent. The facial skin also stretches a bit, adding to this loss of facial volume. Other factors that affect the facial skin include sun exposure, heredity, and lifestyle.

Dermal fillers can be used to:

  • Plump thin lips
  • Enhance shallow contours
  • Soften facial creases and wrinkles
  • Improve the appearance of recessed scars

Dermal fillers can be very helpful in those with early signs of aging, or as a value-added part of facial rejuvenation surgery.

Many people suffer from some form of headaches, migraines, stress, occlusion, and TMJ. Dr. Gibbs has the education and clinical experience to diagnose disorders of the temporal mandibular joint as well as orofacial anomalies. Dr. Gibbs is one of only a few clinicians in the Pacific Northwest seeing patients struggling with these conditions and Mint Condition Dental has several treatment options available.
