Age is just a number but looking and feeling younger can give your confidence a tremendous boost. With highly trained and credentialed doctors on our team, including an oral and maxillofacial surgeon and general dentists, we can bring more to your smile than good dental health. We can make wrinkles disappear from your face. We can accentuate facial features that you may consider too flat or reduce areas with excess fullness. The Key Dental Group team is taking years off the faces of our patients and adding life into them. We can do the same for you with our comprehensive list of facial aesthetics treatments including chemical peels and BOTOX® in Madison and Pearl, MS.

Select Injectables We Offer
Every one of us uses a variety of facial expressions on a daily basis. Those smiles, frowns, and other expressions are how we nonverbally communicate our emotions. They’re also how we age our faces. While an unavoidable part of life, these repeated muscle movements can cause you to develop wrinkles, crow’s feet, and frown lines. We can provide temporary relief from all of these. When we introduce BOTOX into specific areas of your face, the muscles will relax involuntarily. This will minimize or even eliminate the appearance of those facial flaws, for a time giving your face a milder, more youthful look.
Sagging, wrinkled skin. Thin lips and cheeks. Persistent acne scars. All of these can make you self-conscious about your appearance. We use Restylane®, a leading dermal filler, to reverse these features—in some cases permanently. Restylane and other dermal fillers are made of hyaluronic acid, a substance that occurs naturally in our body and lubricates our joints. When we introduce these into the affected areas, we can fill in wrinkles and areas where the skin is thin, leaving your face with a rounder, plumper, smoother appearance. Younger too! While there are cosmetic surgery procedures that produce similar results, dermal fillers allow you to skip surgery in favor of small injections—at a much lower cost! Why have unnecessary surgery?
We offer both Juvéderm Volbella® and Juvéderm Voluma XC. These FDA-approved dermal fillers offer non-surgical lip augmentation and can correct age-related volume loss in the cheek area. Volbella is designed to plump the lips and minimize the appearance of fine lines around the mouth, also known as perioral rhytids or perioral lines, for up to one year. Perioral lines were previously difficult to treat, so we’re excited about this new treatment option for our patients.
While most other injectable facial fillers are approved for treating the “smile lines,” Voluma XC is specifically approved for injection into the cheek area. Voluma gel also contains lidocaine, a local anesthetic that numbs pain, making treatment more comfortable. Unlike a facelift where patients undergo invasive surgery, the Voluma procedure is quick, simple, and straightforward. Most patients take no longer than 30 minutes to complete. What’s more, Voluma filler provides more than a subtle lift, it helps patients look up to five years younger with effects lasting up to two years, all without surgery.
If you’re bothered by the fullness beneath your chin, you’re not alone. A well-defined chin and jawline are some of the most desirable facial features for men and women. In the past, a double chin needed liposuction. KYBELLA is a breakthrough non-surgical treatment that can significantly reduce the appearance of a double chin with a series of injections. KYBELLA is the only non-surgical treatment approved by the FDA to specifically reduce fat below the chin (called submental fat).
How does KYBELLA work? We customize your treatment plan during your consultation based on how much submental fat you have and your aesthetic goals. The number of injections varies from patient to patient. KYBELLA is formulated using deoxycholic acid, a chemical that’s naturally produced by the body to help dissolve and absorb excess fat. Fat destroyed after the injections is flushed from the body naturally, resulting in a gradual shedding of excess fat that causes a double chin. You’ll likely begin seeing results within 30 days of your first treatment.
Because the fat cells injected with KYBELLA are destroyed and flushed from the body, the results are permanent. Your thinner neck will result in a more refined chin and jawline. You may also notice vertical neck bands that were previously hidden by fat. These bands can be easily treated with injections of BOTOX Cosmetic. lf you’re concerned about sagging skin, Pellevé is a successful skin tightening treatment that we also offer in-house.
SkinPen® Microneedling Treatment
SkinPen is a state-of-the-art microneedling derma-roller. This technology punctures the skin with small needles, creating a series of micro-wounds that stimulates the body’s natural healing response. Your body rushes collagen and elastin to these sites forming new capillaries. This smooths out wrinkles naturally, reduces scars, and improves skin texture, firmness, and hydration. lt is a proven skin rejuvenation treatment that works on fine lines and wrinkles, uneven skin tone, acne scars, enlarged pores, hyper-pigmentation, hypo-pigmentation, slack skin, and scarring.
In essence, SkinPen prompts your body to heal and repair itself, leaving your skin more refreshed, rejuvenated, and replenished. SkinPen can also increase the effectiveness and absorption of anti-aging creams and serums, allowing them to penetrate deeper into the skin resulting in a fresher, more radiant look. The lightweight and ergonomic design along with the vertical delivery of the needles allow SkinPen to easily penetrate your skin and fit into hard-to-reach areas most derma-rollers cannot.
SkinPen a quick and simple in-office procedure that takes about 30 minutes. Most people notice healthier-looking skin immediately. However, the natural repair process of your own skin continues to progress over the course of several weeks and continues to improve for up to six months after your final treatment. On average, patients will have what looks like a mild sunburn for 2-3 days. A little bit of swelling or tenderness may follow the procedure but there is no significant downtime. Unlike lasers, SkinPen micro-needling does not depend on pigmentation or skin color to work. Many rejuvenation technologies don’t work on dark skin but SkinPen works on ALL skin tones.

Facial Thread Lift
If you are looking for a minimally invasive way to improve your appearance and possibly take years off of your face but not ready to “go under the knife” for something more invasive like a full face lift, you might want to consider a thread lift. A thread lift is a non-surgical procedure where facial skin is lifted and tightened using resorbable Polydioxanone(PDO) threads. PDO has been used for years as a safe suture material. These threads are inserted and anchored into different layers of the skin that instantly lifts and tightens sagging skin. Along with the lifting, the threads stimulate collagen production for lasting results that can last between 12-24 months. At our office, we perform the procedure, which usually takes between 30 to 60 minutes, with oral sedation and local anesthesia. Recovery time is short and patients can usually resume regular activity within a few days of the procedure. The risk of complications are minimal yet mild swelling and bruising is to be expected.
Latisse® Eyelash Enhancement
Latisse® is the first and only FDA-approved prescription treatment used to grow eyelashes, making them longer, thicker, and darker. This treatment is for those with hypotrichosis, or those who have inadequate or not enough eyelashes. Great lashes don’t just happen overnight, though. Latisse® is a once-a-day treatment applied topically to the base of your upper lashes. That’s why it is important to note that Latisse® works gradually and remarkably with full results after 12 to 16 weeks.
