As a cosmetic dentist who wants to help his patients look and feel their absolute best, Dr. Michael Gertsen knows that a patient’s oral cosmetic concerns don’t always end with their teeth and gums. Sometimes, addressing other facial aesthetic issues can greatly enhance the results of cosmetic dental treatments. At FL Dental Spa, his innovative practice in Lighthouse Point, Florida, Dr. Gertsen provides a complete menu of cosmetic dentistry services, including Botox® and Juvéderm® injections, to patients living in the Broward County area.

Botulinum toxin (type A), commonly known as Botox, is a natural, purified protein that’s used to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and lines. As a neurotoxin, Botox works by blocking the nerve signals that cause your facial muscles to contract, leaving your skin looking naturally smoother.
Dr. Gertsen uses tiny needles to inject small doses of the protein at specific points in your facial anatomy to relax your muscles and help diminish the appearance of the deep wrinkles caused by your everyday facial expressions. The treatment is usually requested following other cosmetic dental procedures, as a final step in facial aesthetic restoration.
As a cosmetic dentist, Dr. Gertsen is uniquely suited to performing Botox treatments: Not only does he have an expert-level understanding of facial anatomy and balance, but he also has finely-honed technical skills.
After discussing your cosmetic goals and developing a treatment plan, Dr. Gertsen prepares the injections and let you know exactly what you can expect during the procedure. Botox injections are relatively painless, and most patients get the results they’re after with a few precisely placed injections. The entire procedure takes about 10 minutes, and results last as long as six months.
Dermal fillers are designed to address the many facial changes brought on by aging, including facial deflation and thinning lips. These minimally-invasive injectable cosmetic products are made with collagen, hyaluronic acid, and other beneficial substances that help rejuvenate facial skin and add facial volume.
Dermal fillers are a safe and effective way to temporarily reduce the appearance of deep lines around your mouth, change the contour of your jawline, subtly flesh out your cheeks, or enhance your lips.
Dr. Gertsen uses Juvéderm products, a leading collection of hyaluronic acid fillers that are designed to instantly and subtly add volume to various areas of your face, including your cheeks and lips.
With excellent results, few risks or side effects, and no downtime, it’s not surprising that dermal fillers are one of the most commonly requested facial aesthetic treatments.
Dr. Gertsen administers dermal fillers through tiny facial injections, which are generally considered painless. The average session lasts 10-20 minutes, with immediate results that may last anywhere from one to two years, depending on the product.
