She integrated Aesthetics in her practice. It complements the faces of her patients after they achieved the gorgeous smile they wanted.
It took 10 years before Dr. Mata offered Botox in her practice to be assured of its safety for her patients. She’s later convinced it’s the safest procedure to relax the jaw muscles to prevent teeth from cracking due to heavy Bruxism and heavy clenching while removing wrinkles!
Dr. Mata incorporated Botox with Thread Lift, and Dermal Fillers depending on the needs and choices of her patients. It is very rewarding for her to see her patients very happy as a result of having beautiful lips and years younger faces after Non-Surgical Facelift. She listens.
