Facial Rejuvenation Treatments in West Palm Beach
When you think facial rejuvenation, the first thing that comes to mind is probably a cosmetic surgeon or day spa. The truth is, nobody knows the structures of the face, neck and jaw like an experienced dentist such as Dr. Moorhouse in West Palm Beach, FL. While most of the work Dr. Moorhouse does as a dentist on a daily basis is treating patients teeth and gums, he is also well trained in providing facial rejuvenation treatments to his patients.
We offer BOTOX® (botulinum toxin) and JUVÉDERM® treatments to our patients.
- BOTOX®: Botox is a sterile, purified protein that is produced by a protein called clostridium botulinum. Botox is injected in small amounts using a sterile needle to cut off the nerve impulses that travel to the muscle. This procedure paralyzes and weakens the muscles around the target areas that have been injected and will typically last for several months. It is because of this paralyzing effect on the muscles of the face that a patient will see the reduction of wrinkles and creases for a more youthful appearance. After the 3-6 month time period that it typically takes for the BOTOX® to wear off, a patient may elect to have further injections.

Why use a dentist for facial rejuvenation?
The doctor you want and trust to give you the results you desire should be a well-trained dentist, not a physician. Your dentist possesses intimate knowledge of the facial nerves, skin and muscles. Dr. Moorhouse administers injections on a daily basis to provide patients with a comfortable experience during their dental visit, which means he knows exactly what he is doing with a needle. These areas of injection are often the same sites targeted while providing facial rejuvenation treatments.
Some patients who desire treatments other than your typical dental procedure are looking for anonymity, which is another reason to see your dentist. Patients will often schedule their dental procedures and treatments along with their facial rejuvenation treatment. It feels great to go in for a teeth whitening treatment or a routine cleaning and come out looking refreshed after receiving your facial treatment as well.
A few areas facial rejuvenation targets:
- Crows Feet
- Laugh Lines
- Neck Wrinkles
- Gummy Smiles

- And more…
Not only will a patient benefit from the cosmetic value of facial rejuvenation, but through a therapeutic way as well. Many patients who have experienced TMJ and migraines have stated that they have experienced less to no pain at all after receiving the treatments. If you have suffered from either TMJ or migraines, you know how painful it can be. Facial rejuvenation treatments have changed their lives dramatically and it can do the same for you.
