Botox

botoxBook a Botox consultation with our office to learn about preventing and reducing the appearance of wrinkles, improving your natural beauty. We can provide Botox treatment during a regular dental visit, giving you the convenience of not needing additional appointments.

 

 

What Is?

Botox Cosmetic, the most popular, non-invasive cosmetic treatment in North America, temporarily relaxes and softens frown lines, forehead creases, and crow’s feet around the eyes. By temporarily blocking the nerve impulses, the overworking muscles that cause wrinkles relax, leaving your skin with a smoother, more refreshed look.

Botox Benefits

This treatment has been used safely and successfully for wrinkle therapy for over 21 years for men and women wanting to prevent and reduce wrinkles. It is a trusted therapeutic treatment used by millions of people for a safe, anti-aging and aesthetic result.

This product has

  • No downtime
  • It is a purified protein
  • Short appointment time
  • Allows for natural movement, not overly paralyzing muscles
  • Results last 3-4 months, and longer with regular use

How Works

Small doses of Botox are injected and block the release of the chemical, acetylcholine, by nerve cells that control muscle contraction. By selectively interfering with underlying muscles’ ability to contract, expression lines are smoothed out and generally close to invisible in 7-10 days.

What to Expect

Our Botox patients usually have their results last 3-4 months, at which time another dose is required. After several treatments, the effects begin to last longer. Repeated use is truly an anti-aging miracle!

Are There Side Effects?

Botox has been used safely by millions for over 21 years. There is no permanent side effect known with BOTOX® therapy for facial wrinkles. However, there are some temporary side effects which include:

  • Temporary bruising at the site of injection
  • Eyebrow or eyelid droop: Seen in less than 1% of patients receiving therapy, it typically only lasts 2-4 weeks, and is mild

Common Treatment Areas

Botox is commonly used for the glabellar frown lines (deep creases between the eyebrows), forehead wrinkles, and crow’s feet (smile lines around the side of the eyes).
