Merrillville, IN Dentist


We can use Botox Treatments to help gently correct most of the active wrinkles found on your face. It is the most common anti-wrinkle medical procedure performed in the United States, with the vast majority of those treated being women.

Is age not being kind to your face? Is your wrinkle cream not working anymore? Dr. Bahl and our Merrillville team can get rid of those unwanted wrinkles!

Most of the time, wrinkles fade within 1-2 weeks, and the amazing results last for around 3-4 months. The procedure only takes a couple of minutes to complete, with minimal pain, and without any downtime. You could actually schedule your appointment over your lunch break and return to work. How many other medical procedures offer that? If you would like to learn more about Botox treatments, or to schedule your appointment, please contact our office.

Botox is used to help reduce:

– Smile Lines
– Bunny Lines
– Frown Lines
– Forehead Wrinkles
– Crow’s Feet
– TMJ/TMD (Temporomandibular Joint Pain)
– Muscle Trigger Point Therapy (Head and Neck)

Botox is one of the most popular cosmetic procedures on the planet. Within days of your treatment, you will see noticeable visible improvement of the lines treated.

These results will last for 3 to 4 months. Discomfort is minimal, many patients have this done on their lunch hour.


JUVÉDERM® is a collection of cosmetic fillers, each made from hyaluronic acid, a natural substance found in skin that helps it retain moisture, soft texture, and proper volume.  JUVÉDERM® products are used to help restore skin to its age-correct texture and volume and to reverse the effects of wrinkles and skin volume loss.

Skin volume loss and wrinkling can cause your face to look tired or older than it should. By choosing treatment with JUVÉDERM® products, you can restore the youthful look and feel of your skin.

Most patients see their desired results in only one treatment. The results with JUVÉDERM® products generally last for about 9-12 months for a single treatment

For the first 24 hours following treatment with JUVÉDERM® products, you should avoid strenuous exercise, extensive exposure to sun or heat, and alcoholic beverages. If this is not followed, you may experience some minor temporary redness, swelling, or itching at the injection site.

There are no incisions required with treatment, which means that recovery time is minimal.

Contact our office in Merrillville for a consultation and recommended treatment options. We will consider your personal goals, overall health, and any medications you are taking when advising you whether JUVÉDERM® products may be right for you.


If time hasn’t been very kind to you, and your face is beginning to sag/wrinkle, facial fillers can be the answer. Facial fillers are used to restore the volume in a person’s face that is lost over the course of time. Most of the time, these are areas of the chin, cheeks, lips, among others. This volumization is done by injecting natural-occurring substances, such as hyaluronic acid, just under the skin to give the area fullness.

Facial fillers are similar to Botox treatments, in that they can be used to remove wrinkles, and are generally pain free with minimal recovery time. After-results generally include younger, smoother looking skin, as well as a refreshed appearance. Typically, results last anywhere from 6-8 months. The length really depends upon the person.

Facial fillers are mainly used to fix:

– Facial features that have lost their fullness (such as cheeks, lips, and chins)
– Deep facial lines
– Chicken pox and acne scars
– Facial Symmetry (can be used to help make the face more asymmetrical)
