Botox in Corpus Christi, TX

The soft tissues around the mouth are as important as the color and position of the teeth in determining the patient’s smile. Lone Star knows that areas around the mouth need to be considered as important as the teeth for complete smile analysis and esthetic treatment. We not only want to give our patients beautiful teeth, but also a beautiful smile. This can all be achieved non-surgically and non-invasively with Botox and Juvederm (filler).

There are many things that go into a beautiful smile. One thing that determines a beautiful smile is the smile line. Do too much of your gums show above your teeth when you smile? In dentistry we call this a "gummy smile". Gummy smiles distract from beautiful teeth and lips. This can easily and quickly be corrected using Botox. We are proud to be one of the few dental clinics that are experienced in Botox injections. Botox is extremely useful in aesthetic dentistry cases and often used in conjunction with Juvederm filler as a non-surgical alternative to high lip line cases as mentioned above. Botox can also be used to bring relief to patients with TMJ or grinding problems. It can greatly reduce the intensity of muscle contractions that contribute to TMJ, thereby reducing or eliminating facial pain.

Frequently asked questions


Why come to Lone Star for Botox/Juvederm?

Dentists are experts in understanding the facial muscles and nerves and how they work. Many plastic surgeon offices and med spas hire aestheticians to inject their patients, but at Lone Star you can rest assured knowing a doctor will perform all injections. We also evaluate the entire face and smile when performing these procedures, so your overall facial beauty will be enhanced. Botox and Juvederm can also be combined with teeth whitening, cleaning and veneers saving time traveling between multiple appointments.

How does Botox work?

Botox uses a special protein to block overactive nerve transmissions and decreases muscle contractions. Through this mechanism, Botox helps to relax muscles beneath the skin. Botox can correct overactive muscles that cause gummy smile and overactive muscles that cause TMJ/grinding issues. These results are not immediate and take place 3-10 days after treatment.

Am I a good candidate for Botox?

If you are diagnosed or have TMJ or facial pain, Botox will be beneficial. If you show too much of your gums above your teeth when you smile, Botox will be beneficial. Please discuss any concerns before treatment.

What is Juvederm?

Juvederm is a filler that helps restore naturally occurring substances in the skin (hyaluronic acid) that decrease as we age. This restores fullness and youthfulness to the lips while still keeping a natural look.

Can Botox and Juvederm be used together?

Botox and Juvederm target and enhance different areas of the face. Botox decreases muscle contractions and Juvederm is a filler that plumps skin and lips. Using Botox and Juvederm simultaneously is completely safe because the two treatments do not interact with each other. In fact, when done correctly, Botox and Juvederm compliment each other to create a youthful, well rested look.

How long do results last?

Every individual has a different metabolism rate thus the results lasts approximately 3-6 months for Botox. Results for Juvederm usually last between 8-12 months. Both treatments are temporary, and once they begin to wear off, the skin will slowly return to the way it looked before treatment. Treatment can be refreshed at this time.

What should I avoid before and after Botox/Juvederm?

Before treatment please avoid medications that thin the blood such as Aspirin, Ibuprofen, Excedrin, Motrin, fish oil, ginseng, and alcohol. Tylenol is a good pain medication alternative to use at this time. After treatment do not touch or massage injection sites for at least 24 hours. Please avoid other facial treatments like massages, peels and microdermbrasion for at least 2 days after treatment. Please avoid exercise for 24-48 hours. It is beneficial to take Arnica (available without a prescription and found at most natural health food stores).
