So, get a radiant glow, banish wrinkles, and keep skin youthful—one bite at a time!

The holidays are filled with fun, but along with all the joy, there is undoubtedly lots of stress that comes along with it. One of the biggest, and sometimes most overlooked, symptoms of stress are night-time clenching and teeth grinding. Most of the time, people don’t even realize they’re doing it! It is usually discovered when a partner complains about being kept awake by the noise of teeth gnashing together or when a dentist sees the signs during a dental checkup. One often overlooked, yet easy solution to this problem is injecting neurotoxins into the jaw – a use popularized by Dr. Graivier to treat people who grind their teeth and have large masseter muscles.
The Graivier Center offers numerous services for the entire body, breast and face for both men and women. From treating unsightly veins to reconstructing physical features and more, Dr. Graivier is determined to get you away from Photoshop and back on track to loving yourself. With his expertise and extensive experience, you’ll feel youthful and confident. You may even begin looking forward to the holiday festivities instead of dreading them!
Do you ever wish you could turn back the clock or rejuvenate an area of your body? As we age, our bodies change due to childbirth, weight fluctuations, certain medical conditions or aging.

Thankfully, there is a solution. ThermiVa™, nonsurgical vaginal rejuvenation.

The holiday season is upon us and we thought it would be fun to share with you the origins of one of the most famous noses in children’s literature, Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer. Enjoy and on behalf of everyone at The Graivier Center, “Happy Holidays!” The Chicago-based Montgomery Ward company, department store operators, had been purchasing and distributing children’s coloring books as Christmas gifts for their customers for several years. In 1939, Montgomery Ward tapped one of their own employees to create a book for them, thus saving money. 34-year old copywriter Robert L. May wrote the story of Rudolph the Red-nosed Reindeer in 1939, and 2.4 million copies were handed out that year. Despite the wartime paper shortage, over 6 million copies had been distributed by 1946.
