Chicago IL (PRWEB) January 07, 2013
Dr. Michael Griffin in Chicago, IL recently introduced Botox and dermal filler treatments to his lineup of services at Northalsted Dental Spa. Typically a treatment used by plastic surgeons for cosmetic treatments, Dr. Griffin is now offering these treatments to patients to better frame their new perfect smile. Dental Botox and dermal fillers are used to treat perioral lines, more commonly known as “smile lines” or “laugh lines” to diminish the appearance of aging.
In their professional training, dentists become highly educated and well trained in the anatomy and musculature of the face, making them excellent candidates for performing Botox or dermal filler injections to improve facial esthetics. Prior to use for cosmetic purposes, dentists often used Botox as an effective way to treat temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorders and facial pain.
“With our new offerings of Botox and dermal fillers, we’re really able to treat the whole picture for our patients who come to us for cosmetic concerns,” said Dr. Michael Griffin. “Now our patients at Northalsted Dental Spa can not only get fitted with a beautiful new smile, but we can give them an overall look to go with that smile that they are confident in and proud to show off.”
Botox and dermal fillers are both minimally invasive procedures that are done using small needles. Both work to smooth fine lines and wrinkles, creating a more youthful appearance in the facial tissues. Botox injections work as a muscle relaxer to treat the appearance of wrinkles while dermal fillers add volume beneath the skin to create the same effect.
In addition to the Botox and dermal fillers offered at Northalsted Dental Spa in Chicago, IL, Dr. Michael Griffin is highly skilled in general and cosmetic dentistry. He provides cosmetic treatments such as Lumineers, Invisalign, crowns, bridges, implants, teeth whitening and gum therapy. Dr. Griffin places high emphasis on preventative care and treatment
Dr. Griffin was raised in the Chicago area and completed his dental education at the Southern Illinois University School of Dental Medicine in 1998. He established Northalsted Dental Spa in 2005.
