With BOTOX® Cosmetic, reducing and preventing wrinkles can be a simple and rewarding treatment. The repeated muscle contractions from squinting, smiling and raising eyebrows over time causes the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. BOTOX® Cosmetic works to temporarily reduce the underlying muscle activity that causes moderate to severe lines caused by these movements. A quick 5-10 minute in-office treatment can leave you looking more refreshed and rejuvenated.
Did You Know?
Dentists can safely and comfortably administer facial injections of Botox®. Despite the fact that dentists are not plastic surgeons, they have an extensive knowledge of facial anatomy which helps them to deliver Botox® injections. Dr. Sarah is certified with the American Academy of Facial Aesthetics and trained specifically in the area of BOTOX® Cosmetic.
Frequently Asked Questions:
Am I a candidate for dental Botox®?
If you have any of the following concerns, you may be a potential candidate for Botox® treatment:
● Wrinkles on my forehead, in between eyebrows and around eyes
● People think I am angry or tired when my face is at rest
● I want to prevent wrinkles
● I clench my teeth together or have noticed jaw soreness
● I have frequent migraines or headaches
Ideal candidates for Botox® are also at least 18 years of age, are not pregnant or breastfeeding and are overall in good health. To see if you are a good candidate, schedule a free consult with Dr. Sarah.
What can I expect when at my appointment?
You can expect to first consult with Dr. Sarah to discuss your goals and treatment needs. Dr. Sarah will clean the area and will use a tiny needle to inject the Botox® into the specific muscles of the face. The total number of injections will depend on your individual treatment plan. In most cases, dental Botox® treatment takes about 30 minutes to complete.
How long does it take to see results?
In general, patients can start to see results as early as 3 to 4 days after injections, but for most patients, results will start 10 to 14 stays after treatment. The results last approximately 3-4 months.
Will I need to follow any special guidelines after my appointment?
You will not need to follow any special guidelines after your appointment, and you can return to your usual routine. However, it is common to experience some minor soreness, swelling, or bruising around the injection sites. We do recommend that you get your workout in before your appointment and there is
no lying down for 4 hours after your botox treatment.
