The goal of orthodontics is to correct patients' smiles, however, Dr. Sherrick goes "Beyond the Smile" and focuses on full facial aesthetics. Sherrick Orthodontics is excited to announce that we offer Botox® and Juvéderm™ injections as well as Latisse®! Dr. Sherrick is is also a Brand Partner with Nerium International. Dr. Sherrick is a member of the American Academy of Facial Esthetics and has received expert training from the AAFE to safely administer Botox® and Juvéderm™. She is able to enhance patients’ facial contours using Botox® and Juvéderm™ injections. These injections can eliminate facial wrinkles and frown lines. Additionally, Botox® and Juvéderm™ injections can be used to inhibit jaw clenching by relaxing certain facial muscles. Some patients who suffer from TMJ pain and obtain an injection are even able to stop wearing their splints!
After receiving a beautiful, straight smile, some patients want to highlight other areas of their face to give them greater self-confidence to show off their dazzling new smile! To give patients the longer, fuller eyelashes they want, we offer the at-home Latisse® system.

Many are turning to Botox® to reduce moderate to severe frown lines between their brows, forehead wrinkles and crow's feet. This safe and effective medication is placed into your wrinkles using a tiny needle. It is used to eliminate facial wrinkles and frown lines by decreasing the movement of the muscles in these trouble areas. Botox® can brighten up your attitude and outlook, remove the wrinkles of time or make small improvements in an otherwise perfect face.
Botox® is specially formulated with a purified protein, which relaxes the muscles when injected in the targeted area, ultimately reducing the appearance of frown lines and facial wrinkles. It is a minimally invasive procedure, allowing patients to return to normal daily activities immediately following the procedure. A topical anesthesia can be used, if necessary.
FDA approved, Botox® is a safe and effective procedure that provides patients with results that can last anywhere from 3-5 months on average.
Following the Botox® procedure, it is not uncommon to experience some minor swelling, redness or bruising around the targeted site. Patients can take Tylenol and/or use ice packs to help reduce swelling and relieve any discomfort. Other side effects include drooping of the eyelid, nausea, headache and respiratory infection, but only occur in about 1% of patients. They are considered temporary and usually resolve themselves within a few weeks.
Juvéderm™ is a smooth gel that is made up of hyaluronic acid, which is a naturally occurring substance found in your body. By carefully injecting Juvéderm™ underneath the skin, your skin can be completely rejuvenated, ultimately adding volume and reducing the appearance of facial wrinkles and folds. It offers patients a safe and effective treatment with little to no down-time. Juvéderm™ is less invasive than other fillers and provides patients with dramatic improvement almost immediately following treatment. Results can last up to six months.
Results from a 2015 survey conducted by the American Society for Dermatologic Surgery found that 67% of people do not like their submental fullness, or under-the-chin fullness, also known as “double-chin”. While a healthy diet and regular exercise are beneficial overall, sometimes it’s not enough to rid the body of certain areas of excess fat. Submental fullness is one such area, as it can be determined by many factors, including age, weight gain but also genetics.
We are proud to offer KYBELLA® injections so you can say goodbye to your stubborn double-chin! The injection formula contains deoxycholic acid, a naturally-produced molecule in the body that helps break down and absorb fat.
You and the doctor will decide how many treatments you need and what your final chin profile should look like. At each treatment appointment, you will receive the KYBELLA injections on the underside of the chin. Within 2-4 treatments, you may begin to see results. As many as 6 treatments may be scheduled no less than a month apart to obtain ideal results. After you’ve achieved your desired look, retreatment is not needed!
KYBELLA was specifically created to eliminate submental fullness, so contact us today to see if this procedure is right for you!
If you want thicker, longer eyelashes, then Latisse® may be for you! Latisse® treats eyelash hypotrichosis, a condition of abnormal eyelash growth. The first and only FDA-approved topical prescription solution, simply apply Latisse® to your lashline at night as part of your daily routine, and within weeks you will begin to see results.
