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, Dr. Kathein and Dr. Kossak, 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.
Dr. Lital Kathein and Dr. Elizabeth Kossak are expert providers of Botox and Dysport. Dr. Kathein is a Faculty Member of the American Academy of Facial Esthetics and travels around the U.S. teaching other medical practitioners on how to inject Botox.
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. Their patients appreciate the fact that they leave the office looking better, not “fake” or “overdone”. The key is their aim for natural beauty. “I’m happiest when my patient looks totally natural and as if they had nothing done,” says Dr. Kathein.
Frequently Asked Questions
Q: Botox is so readily available everywhere. Why get it at Elite Dental and Aesthetics?
A: First and foremost, it comes down to the quality of the results. Our patients tell us that although they have been happy with their Botox outcome in the past, the results we are able to achieve for them are far better. That is because we are very precise and methodical in planning each case: we assess the muscle position and tone and we plan each and every injection point. Our delivery is very meticulous and customized - the results are beautiful and natural looking. Patients also choose us because of the convenience of combining their dental hygiene visits with their Botox treatments every 6 months.
Q: What areas of the face do you treat with Botox?
A: We treat the face as a whole and use Botox to make the muscles work harmoniously. As higher level injectors, we inject many more areas than other providers do, specifically in the lower face. We know how to successfully and predictably inject areas that other injectors ignore, such as the chin, jaw muscles, bunny lines in the nose, vertical lines around the lips, and in the neck. The results are aesthetically pleasing and natural-looking. And best of all, we are preventing further aging.
Q: Why go to a dentist to get Botox/Dysport or fillers?
A. Dentists 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. Injectable aesthetics is a field that requires an artistic vision and a skilled hand. We believe that the more experienced you are as an injector, the better you are. We perform Botox/Fillers every day and have treated hundreds of happy, regularly returning patients.
Q: How much does Botox cost?
A: It depends on the amount of Botox we have to use and how many areas of the face we are treating. It's best to come in and get a complimentary consultation with the doctor. The doctor will give you an overall assessment and make specific recommendations. We recently launched a monthly membership program that our patients love. It allows them to keep up with their Botox/Dysport maintenance with affordable monthly payments.
