Can dentists offer BOTOX? The answer is a definite yes! Dentists already have extensive knowledge in facial muscles and tissues. Additionally, dentists in any specialty are often particularly skilled in delivering virtually painless injections.
BOTOX Cosmetic is an FDA-approved prescription medicine that is injected into various points in facial muscles to smooth wrinkles and improve appearance. BOTOX works by blocking signals from the nerves to the muscles so that the muscles can no longer contract. This relaxes and softens wrinkles. Imagine getting rid of frown lines or crow’s feet during your dental visit!
Did you know - Botox can even help relieve symptoms of TMJ disorder. When injected into the head and neck muscles that are creating facial pain caused by TMJ disorder, Botox works to block the nerve signals in these areas and relax the muscles. This reduces their movement and helps eliminate soreness and pain. Headaches, teeth grinding, jaw lock and stress can also be greatly reduced due to the jaw tension relief created by Botox treatment.
BOTOX results are not permanent. They typically last four to six months. The treatment requires periodic visits in order to maintain the smooth appearance.
BOTOX is a prescribed cosmetic therapy and is not for everyone. Ask us for more information about our facial cosmetic services and how we can incorporate them into your office visits. We will work together to establish the best treatment plan for you.
BOTOX & Xeomin
As we age, small lines and crow’s feet naturally begin to appear around our mouth. BOTOX and Xeomin are cosmetic procedures that can help restore volume and smooth out those aging lines and wrinkles on and around the face. While facial rejuvenation is mostly recognized as a solution to aging skin and wrinkles, it can also help prevent chronic migraines and headaches before they even start!
Are you tired of wrinkles and interested in smoothing out the skin around your mouth, on your lips and in your cheek? We have the solution: dermal fillers!
As we age, small lines and wrinkles naturally begin to appear on our lips, mouth and cheeks. Dermal fillers are a cosmetic procedure (a little different than BOTOX) that can help restore volume in these areas and smooth out those aging lines and wrinkles.
The filler substance is made up of mostly hyaluronic acid (HA), which is a sugar that occurs naturally in the body. As we age, the amount of HA in facial skin and muscles decreases, causing breakdown and wrinkles. The injection literally fills facial wrinkles and folds, especially on the lips, around the mouth and in the cheek, by adding volume to the skin and smoothing it out. It thereby restores a more youthful appearance. The results can last anywhere from three months to as much as a year, depending on multiple factors.
