Botox Treatment in Madison, AL
What is Botox?
Botox is a treatment using Botox to correct a wide range of oral health issues, as well as the look of your skin or facial muscles. Dr. Laurentis Barnett at Divine Expressions Family Dentistry has undergone extensive training and schooling regarding the face and mouth muscles, and with that extensive anatomical training knows every procedure inside and out when it comes to treating patients with Botox.
The substance used to treat our patients with Botox is botulinum toxin A, which is the same substance universally used in Botox treatments. Once Botox has been injected, the botulinum toxin A causes a temporary paralysis of the muscle. This paralysis forces the muscles to relax and removes the appearance of wrinkles or whatever issue you might be treating.
There are extensive benefits to the Botox treatment that we provide at our Madison, AL office.
What Can Botox Treat
Botox is designed to treat a variety of problems related to your facial muscles, skin, and oral health. The most common issues treated with dental Botox are:
• Migraines or headache pain
• “Gummy” smiles
• Lip lines
• Clenching or grinding of the teeth
• Upside-down smiles
• Facial lines
• Smile lines (nasolabial folds)
Botox may be applied in a variety of other applications besides, but these are some of the most common. Depending on our cosmetic dentist’s recommendation, multiple issues undergo treatment at once using dental Botox in some cases.
While dental Botox can treat a wide range of issues, it does not cover every problem related to oral health. If you think you might benefit from Botox treatment, contact our office and schedule a Botox consultation with our cosmetic dentist.
Advantages of Botox
When requiring treatment for oral health problems, oral aesthetics, or even teeth grinding, going to a dentist for Botox application is always the best choice. Since dentists are experts in your face and mouth muscles, there are distinct advantages to Botox treatment as administered by a cosmetic dentist.

Juvederm Treatment in Madison, AL
Juvederm is an injectable, minimally-invasive cosmetic treatment used to reverse or soften the effects of skin aging on the patient’s face. Even though it involves needles, the treatment is 100% painless, and it takes a little less than an hour to complete.
How Juvederm Works
The substance used in Juvederm treatments is hyaluronic acid, which acts as a lubricating and hydrating agent once injected into the skin. The areas of the face most affected by aging are the smile lines, deep lines near the nose, and vertical lines near the lips. A single Juvederm treatment will have a fantastic smoothing and rounding effect on these areas.
How Long Juvederm Lasts
On average, the treatment lasts anywhere between 6 and 12 months. The aging lines will return after that, but it is perfectly safe to repeat the treatment. Additional benefits of Juvederm treatment are:
- Immediate visible results
- Requires no downtime
- Minimally invasive
- Leaves no marks or scars
