Check out the information below to learn more about BOTOX®, JUVÉDERM®, chemical peels, and more at our practice.
BOTOX® is one of the most popular methods of smoothing frown lines, forehead wrinkles, and other fine lines on the face. BOTOX® treatments are an FDA-approved method of achieving smoother, younger-looking skin. Having BOTOX® treatments in our sanitary office setting in Amarillo is a safe and easy way to achieve a refreshed, youthful look.
Patients can see real results from treatment. BOTOX® is one of the most popular methods of wrinkle reduction for a reason: it works! Having your treatment performed by professionals, like our cosmetic and surgical staff members, ensures that you receive the best possible results.
BOTOX® treatments are simple and easy. The procedure lasts only minutes, and you can resume your normal activities immediately after your appointment. BOTOX® injections use some of the smallest needles available, and many patients find that there is very little pain, if any, during the treatment. We also offer pre-injection numbing treatments for patients who are nervous about receiving BOTOX®, because your comfort is one of our top priorities at Amarillo Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery.
The effects are long lasting without the risks involved with permanent procedures. BOTOX® typically lasts between three and six months, though some patients can experience longer lasting results. Some minimal side effects, such as light bruising or swelling, can be expected immediately after the procedure, but in most cases, these effects resolve within a few hours. Any effects from BOTOX® will be totally reversible. Because the treatment is temporary, BOTOX® applications can be tailored to fit your needs as your face naturally ages and changes.

Obagi Medical Products
Our practice in Amarillo offers Obagi Medical Products such as the Nu-Derm® line to refresh, renew, and protect your skin. The Nu-Derm® System is a comprehensive skincare system that provides patients with everything they need to prevent aging and promote healthy flawless skin.
Aging and Sun Damage
The skin naturally ages over time, but sun exposure can cause signs of aging to occur more rapidly. Damage from sunlight and exposure to the elements can cause
- Age spots
- Loss of elasticity
The Nu-Derm® line of products penetrates the skin’s outer layers to rejuvenate the skin by increasing the turnover of new skin cells, helping the skin retain moisture, and protecting you from the sun.

JUVÉDERM® is a line of gel-based dermal fillers that can smooth wrinkles and restore your youthful luster. The aging process causes the natural fat cells beneath our skin to diminish, resulting in wrinkles, creases, and sagging or sullen-looking skin. Fillers such as JUVÉDERM® restore the volume beneath the skin to fill in deep wrinkles and add volume to areas that have become more sunken-in, such as deep creases or smile lines around the mouth and nose. Our Amarillo staff are experts at applying JUVÉDERM® and other filler treatments right here in our surgical office.
JUVÉDERM® offers a variety of benefits to patients who are looking to rejuvenate their skin:
- Results are instant and beautiful. Results from JUVÉDERM® are instant, and you will walk out of the office with fuller, more youthful looking skin.
- JUVÉDERM® is long lasting. The effects of JUVÉDERM® treatments can last for up to one year, making JUVÉDERM® the only FDA- approved filler with such long-term results.
- JUVÉDERM® is based on substances that occur naturally in the body. JUVÉDERM® is a hyaluronic acid-based filler, and hyaluronic acid (HA) is a substance that naturally occurs in the joint fluids, soft connective tissue, and skin. In fact, HA fillers are used in all sorts of filler treatments, including injections designed to cushion bad joints, repair wounds, and fill deep wrinkles or scars.
- The procedure is fast and easy. We can apply dermal filler treatments from the comfort of our surgical office, and the injection takes only a few minutes. JUVÉDERM® also contains lidocaine, a natural numbing agent to maximize your comfort during the treatment. The overall process is very easy, especially compared to facial surgeries that require lengthy healing periods.

Peels can improve the texture and tone of your skin. When your skin tone becomes uneven or dull because of sun exposure, aging, acne scars, or other causes, a chemical peel can penetrate the damaged outer layers of your skin to reveal smoother, healthier, younger-looking skin beneath. Chemical peels are a great way to get real results without resorting to invasive surgeries or other more extensive procedures. Some of the skin conditions that chemical peels can help combat include
- Acne or acne scarring
- Age spots
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Irregular pigmentation
- Rough or scaly patches of skin
- Sun damage
