Which Injectable is Right For You?

"Getting work done" is no longer the secret it once was. In fact, if you're not already on the train it is likely you are the last one of your friends to take advantage of technology's non-surgical cosmetic treatments. 


At some point, it's hard to ignore the vivid signs of aging you see in the mirror -- little wrinkles around your eyes or lips, sunken face, maybe some sagging skin. There used to be few options for turning back the clock without going under the knife. But today, you can soften the effects of time on your face with many nonsurgical cosmetic procedures. But, which injectable is right for you? They are a versatile line of beauty products well suited to reverse many visible signs of aging. Let's start off with explaining some common aging complaints and which treatment is best. 


Lines and wrinkles can be caused by repeated expressions, such as furring your brow, frowning, and smiling. Bo tox injections prevent certain facial muscles from contracting and causing wrinkles. With skilled injections, you will look naturally rejuvenated.

Loss of Facial Volume

Dermal Fillers plump and smooth skin, by adding volume and creating the appearance of a visible lift. They can be applied in the midface(cheeks), around the jaw, and even on the lips to add volume. PDO Threads can also add volume by a non-surgical facelift where facial skin is lifted and tightened.


Applying toxin to the masseter muscle will relax the muscle to stop clenching, grinding, or the ability to bite down hard. This relaxation in the muscle will also lead to thinning of the muscle, which will result in thinning of the face and alleviating teeth grinding and headaches.


Noticeable Wrinkle Smoothing with No Downtime

The cosmetic form of botulinum toxin, sometimes referred to as

"Bo tox" by patients, is a prescription medicine that is injected into muscles and used to temporarily improve the look of lines caused from expression. It works by blocking nerve impulses directly to the injected muscles. With real, noticeable results, no surgery, and no recovery time it is a perfect choice for many patients.

The procedure is considered a safe, effective way of treating aging skin.  Common areas for BO TOX® &  XEOMIN® injections include horizontal forehead furrows, vertical lines between the eyebrows, and “crow’s feet” around the eyes.  Botulinum Products have been proven to be the best non-surgical form of facial rejuvenation and is capable of producing phenomenal improvements in your appearance.

Reasons for Considering a BO TOX® or XEOMIN® Treatment:

  • Excessive facial wrinkles.

  • Large wrinkles or furrows in your forehead.

  • Small wrinkles or “crow’s feet” around your eyes.

  • A vertical “frown line” between your eyebrows.


Most signs of aging in the face—wrinkles, lines, and crow’s feet—can be reversed by targeting volume in specific areas. Dermal fillers, also called injectable fillers and soft-tissue fillers, are aesthetic products approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to help add volume and shape a natural, youthful facial appearance. Only licensed physicians, physician assistants, and nurses can perform dermal filler injections in the US.

Dermal fillers are safe and convenient. They’re made with a base ingredient of hyaluronic acid (HA), collagen, or some type of biosynthetic polymer—all naturally occurring substances. They’re not permanent, but some will produce results that last more than a year.

Dermal fillers are used to add volume. They help the body deliver nutrients to the skin, which also helps skin retain moisture. With dermal fillers, we can restore softness and smooth out things like:

  • Wrinkles

  • Cheek depressions

  • Deep lines from the nose to the mouth that show up as you get older

  • Acne scars

  • Frown lines

  • Scarring

  • Worry lines

  • Crow’s feet

  • Marionette lines

  • Lip borders


The PDO Thread Lift procedure safely and instantly lifts up loose skin on the face, and neck with minimal downtime. Most popular treatment areas are the brows, cheeks (midface), jowls, and upper neck.

Thread Lift is one the most effective ways to lift loose skin without surgery. As we age, the effects of gravity become more noticeable on our faces, especially as our facial support structure weakens and we lose facial fat. The areas that are generally affected are the eyebrows, areas around the eyes, the cheeks, the jowls, and the neck. The result is a longer, more square-shaped, and older-looking face.

Ideal candidates for thread lifts include:

  • People with minimal signs of aging who need just a small lift. Good candidates are those patients who are starting to see some droopiness of the brow, cheeks, jowls and/or neck and would like to see a lift effect but do not want the risk, scars, or recovery of a real browlift, facelift, or neck lift operation.

  • People who have had some relapse from a previous plastic surgery procedure such as a facelift or neck lift.

  • People who do not wish to undergo a surgical facelift or neck lift for various reasons such as not wanting a prolonged recovery of a stand facelift or do not wish to spend money on an expensive facelift.

PDO Threads

Stop teeth clenching and grinding while slimming your face!

Wide jaws, pain & migraines are unnecessary - Dr. Kathryn Ryan at Parkway Prosthodontics may have the treatment you’re looking for with the Masseters treatment. This procedure is a multi-tasker, from non-surgical jawline slimming to drug-free pain relief. 

Masseter B0TOX is frequently used to treat two types of concerns.

  1. Patients who complain of “grinding my teeth” (Bruxism-TMJ). Patients usually opt for this treatment when other solutions are ineffective to control the aches, pain, and associated headaches due to grinding their teeth. TMD (temporomandibular disorder) can cause pain in your jaw joint and in the muscles that control jaw movement.

  2. Jawline B0TOX in the masseter muscle helps to decrease the size. Most individuals with large muscles clench their teeth at night (unaware sometimes), chew gum excessively or are weight lifters- deeming this treatment ideal.

Masseter B0TOX makes the surgical option less popular, as people tend to opt for the decision that doesn’t require undergoing the knife! A large muscle may require a few jawline BOT0X sessions; moreover, it depends on the muscle size as the treatment differs from person to person

If you thought this was a time-consuming process, including a plethora of consultations, and strenuous hours of treatment. Don’t worry! A masseter session takes less than half an hour, including the consultation typically. This significantly reduces the time frame and adds convenience to the patient. Now, at Parkway Prosthodontics in Jacksonville, FL we can slim your jaw and ease pain without the need for invasive surgery.
