At Lakeview Dental, we offer both neuromodulator and dermal filler treatments in a safe and professional environment.
Neuromodulators like Botox, Xeomin, Dysport, etc work by blocking the nerves that contract muscles, softening the appearance of wrinkles and therefore making you look refreshed and more youthful. While the results are dramatic, they will not radically change your facial appearance.
