In addition to the expertise Dr. Alvarez has developed in the world of Cosmetic dentistry, he has furthered it in the field of BOTOX®, KYBELLA®, and dermal fillers. Dr. Alvarez has been certified by both the Facial Beauty Institute in Tennessee, and the Esthetic Skin Institute in Florida, in the use of such techniques. In addition, dr. Alvarez has also undergone training and certification by Allergan, the company behind BOTOX® , JUVÉDERM®, KYBELLA®, and other aesthetic products. DR. Alvarez has been using dermal fillers and botox in his practice for a decade.
Having JUVÉDERM®, KYBELLA®, or BOTOX® done by Dr. Alvarez us different in some subtle ways. Looking at faces every day, and knowing what a great smile looks like allows Dr. Alvarez to know what a beautiful frame for that smile should be. First, incorporating his vast knowledge of facial anatomy, and taking into account all the artistic components that make up a beautiful face and smile, Dr. Alvarez can tailor fillers to give the right amount of augmentation. Secondly, as a dentist, Dr. alvarez is accustomed to working on the changing appearance of the face, determining facial beauty, and using the contours of your teeth and smile to cause a change in the contours of your face. Third, Dr. Alvarez can also apply low level laser therapy to the filler site to reduce inflammation, bruising, and swelling that is normally associated with treatment. Fourth, Dr. Alvarez is very comfortable in numbing the facial areas treated, just as in dental procedures, which can make aesthetic procedures virtually painless.
BOTOX® Cosmetic is a prescription medicine that is injected into muscles and used to temporarily improve the look of both moderate to severe crow’s feet lines and frown lines between the eyebrows in adults.
BOTOX® Cosmetic targets one of the underlying causes of frown lines and crow’s feet—the repeated muscle contractions from frowning and squinting over the years. dr. alvarez will inject these muscles with BOTOX® Cosmetic to temporarily reduce muscle activity. You will begin to notice a visible smoothing of your crow’s feet lines and frown lines between your brows.
Treatment requires minimal downtime or recovery; it’s often called a lunchtime procedure. You’ll be able to go about your normal routine immediately after you leave Dr. alvarez's office.
You may begin to notice results within 24 to 48 hours for moderate to severe frown lines, with results lasting up to 4 months.
Dr. alvarez exclusively uses hyaluronic acid (HA) fillers in the JUVÉDERM® family made by Allergan. JUVÉDERM® is the #1 selling collection of hyaluronic acid fillers in the US. Each product in the JUVÉDERM® collection of fillers adds volume to a different area of the face to lift cheeks, smooth parentheses lines, or plump the lips. The results are subtle and long-lasting.
The JUVÉDERM® collection of fillers is made from hyaluronic acid (HA). What’s interesting about HA is that it’s a natural substance in the skin that delivers nutrients, helps the skin retain moisture and softness, and adds volume. Each product in the JUVÉDERM® collection of fillers is made from a modified form of HA.
Dr. Alvarez administers the treatment during a brief office visit. JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC, JUVÉDERM® XC, JUVÉDERM® Ultra XC, and JUVÉDERM VOLLURE™ XC contain lidocaine to help minimize discomfort during treatment. If you’re still concerned about treatment discomfort, Dr. Alvarez may offer additional anesthetic options for you.
JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC is the only filler proven to last up to 2 years in the cheek area.*
JUVÉDERM® XC instantly smooths moderate to severe parentheses lines and wrinkles around your nose and mouth for up to 1 year.* It may also be used to plump your lips.
JUVÉDERM VOLLURE™ XC softens moderate to severe facial lines and wrinkles to create a smoother appearance for up to 18 months.*
JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA® XC adds volume to the lips and smooths vertical lip lines, also known as peri-oral or smoker's lines, giving you results that last through 1 year.*
*With optimal treatment.
KYBELLA® (deoxycholic acid) injection 10 mg/mL, is a prescription medicine used in adults to improve the appearance and profile of moderate to severe fat below the chin (submental fat), also called “double chin.” KYBELLA® is injected under the chin by Dr. alvarez, and requires anywhere from 2-4 sessions, each session 6-8 weeks apart.
