Compliment your smile with a more youthful appearance

Improving our patients total wellness begins with reversing the clock. Dr. Minadeo-Fox takes a comprehensive approach to making you look your best. Feeling healthier now includes our ability to erase wrinkles, enhance lips, and provide anti-aging treatments and skin care options. Rejuvenating your smile already makes you look 10 years younger and now with the addition of Botox and dermal fillers, our patients are looking 15 to 20 years younger. If you are concerned with facial lines and wrinkles and desire a more youthful appearance with non-invasive procedures, these safe and effective treatments provide the final puzzle piece to a picture perfect smile.


What is Botox?
Botox is a purified protein that, when administered in low doses, relaxes facial muscles, giving the skin a smooth, youthful look. It is typically used around the mouth and eyes, where smile lines develop and deepen over time. Though Botox is most commonly used as a restorative measure — after lines and wrinkles have already formed — it can be used as a preventive measure as well: the muscles used in facial expressions can be retrained before lines become etched in the skin. Botox is popular because it is a nonsurgical, affordable, and effective cosmetic solution with almost no side effects.


Dr. Claudia Minadeo-Fox also uses Botox for our patients who suffer from TMJ pain and bruxism. The injections relax certain facial muscles which stop the clenching associated with pain and tooth wear; some patients are even able to stop wearing their splints. In addition, Botox can effectively help in treating patients who suffer from certain types of headaches including migraines along with being used to slim the face when treating bruxism.

Botox can also be used to treat a gummy smile. A gummy smile is one that shows excessive gingival tissue when smiling.

One 10-minute treatment and a few tiny injections and within days there’s a noticeable improvement with little downtime which can last up to 4 months.

Why are we doing Botox?
Even though it seems strange to some to visit the dentist for Botox and dermal fillers, a dentist understands the facial anatomy more than most physicians and can make skillful injections that are comfortable and produce natural looking results. As part of her continuing education, Dr. Claudia Minadeo-Fox completed her training through The American Academy of Facial Esthetics (AAFE). The AAFE is a multidisciplinary professional healthcare organization whose mission is teaching the best non-surgical and non-invasive facial injectable techniques to healthcare professionals worldwide.


What are Dermal Fillers?


Dermal Fillers (such as Juvederm® and Restylane®) are smooth consistency gels made of hyaluronic acid , a naturally occurring substance in your skin that helps add volume and hydration. Dermal fillers placed under the skin instantly restore your skin’s volume and smooth away facial wrinkles and folds, like your “smile lines” or “parentheses” (the creases that run from the bottom of your nose to the corners of your mouth). They can also correct marionette lines, scars and vertical lines above the lips along with smile and facial asymmetries.

Restoring the youthfulness of the skin around your smile and creating a more restful appearance make the minimally invasive dermal fillers a popular alternative to surgical facelifts. They are attractive due to their immediate results and minimal downtime also.

Fillers for fantastic lips


Fillers also can give lips fullness for patients who wish to correct thin lips or restore volume loss due to aging. Our lip enhancement focuses on creating a natural appearance while producing dramatic results for the young and aging patients alike.

In addition, Dr. Minadeo-Fox integrates fillers such as Juviderm Voluma and Restylane Lyft in her practice which are injectable gels which instantly add volume in the cheek area. This subtle lift helps to restore contour and a more youthful profile.

The results of dermal filler are immediate and can last from 6 months to 1 year with the exception of Juviderm Voluma which can last up to 2 years.

These procedures are certainly not just for women
Women may talk about their looks more often, but men are equally concerned about their appearance as well.
