Botox and dermal fillers reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. These cosmetic treatments can also address other signs of aging, like lost volume and facial sagging.
However, in some cases, these cosmetic treatments can address teeth grinding and symptoms of temporomandibular joint disorders (TMD). They also address muscle problems that arise from chronic teeth clenching and grinding. Botox and dermal fillers can treat sore muscles, headaches, lockjaw, and jaw tension.

Real Patients, Real Results: Before & Afters
Botox® and Dermal Fillers in Hoffman Estates, IL
Dr. Patel will meet with you to evaluate the condition of your skin, discuss your goals, and recommend the most suitable treatment for achieving the look you desire. Our facial aesthetic treatments are tailored to your unique needs for a safe, natural-looking result that addresses your concerns or completes a smile makeover.
This popular cosmetic solution can help support your smile. Botox can treat dynamic wrinkles or wrinkles created by muscle movements. These movements occur most often when smiling, frowning, and squinting. Examples of dynamic wrinkles can include crow’s feet, forehead lines, and frown lines.
Patients with TMJ disorders also benefit from Botox treatment in our Hoffman Estates, IL office. Temporomandibular joint disorders (TMD) are bite disorders that create painful symptoms. Common symptoms of TMD include facial and jaw pain, migraines, and headaches. This is due to tension in the facial muscles. With Botox, we can target and relax tense muscles to relieve pain and stop TMJ symptoms.
In most cases, patients will notice results a few days following treatment. Botox results often last three to six months; we can provide touch-up treatment as needed.
In addition to Botox, we provide dermal fillers. Most dermal fillers use hyaluronic acid, a skincare ingredient that helps smooth and tone the skin.
Dermal fillers work by adding volume to facial lines. Fillers can add volume to the cheeks, lips, and chin. They are a minimally invasive and long-lasting treatment option. Fillers can also target and treat smaller muscles in the face. We can use fillers to address marionette lines, acne scarring, laugh lines, and eye bags.
On average, fillers can last six or more months. Like Botox, patients may want to undergo filler touch-ups after the initial treatment to maintain their results.
Patients can receive Botox and fillers simultaneously. This is because each injectable acts differently. We will use Botox first to freeze the muscles. Then, after we provide Botox, we will add volume to the face with dermal fillers. It is completely safe to provide both cosmetic treatments in one session. We will precisely plan treatment so the injectables work on different parts of the face.
Botox® & Dermal Fillers FAQs
Discover more about Botox and dermal fillers in our Hoffman Estates, IL office. Read answers to these commonly asked patient questions:
How painful is Botox treatment?
Most patients who receive Botox say there was very little or no pain with the procedure. Patients may feel minor discomfort and a pinch, which is normal. We will use a topical cream to minimize sensation or stinging during treatment.
How quickly will Botox results appear, and how long will they last?
Botox results typically become fully apparent around two weeks after the initial treatment. The results typically last a couple of months. Most patients undergo Botox treatment every six months to revamp the results.
Why do dentists give Botox treatment?
Dentists administer botox treatment for a variety of reasons. Botox helps patients who have pain in their face or jaw. It also helps with TMJ or TMD. Botox relaxes facial muscles around the mouth and can help many patients with muscle pain.
Dentists already have a thorough understanding of the facial structure. Many dental problems, including TMJ disorders, are connected to the smile. Dentists who undergo Botox training are certified just like other certified Botox estheticians.
Do dermal fillers hurt?
You should not feel severe pain when you receive fillers. It is normal to feel some initial discomfort, particularly because fillers use a thicker gel. We will use a topical anesthetic to numb the treated areas before administering fillers.
What happens when dermal fillers wear off?
When your dermal fillers wear off, you will notice that your skin will feel and look as it had before treatment. Dermal fillers use natural substances like hyaluronic acids that are reabsorbed into the body. You will notice that you lose volume in treated face areas as the fillers wear off.
