Smile4Life now offers facial rejuvenation treatments, so reinvigorate yourself using Botulinum Toxin Cosmetic® popularly known as Botox. Dentists are all about making sure you maintain a youthful smile. So why not throw some Botox into the mix, and help you ditch those frown lines while they’re at it? Your dentist is already very well-trained in the musculature and anatomy of the face; therefore, no other doctor can give an injection better than a qualified and experienced dentist.
Botulinum Toxin (Botox, onabotulinumtoxinA) is a material that has been known for over a century and used for medical purposes for more than 50 years. In 2002, it was approved for improving and relaxing frown lines in the area between the eyes on the forehead and has been used successfully in more than over 11 million patients since that time, based on estimates from data supplied by the Allergan Corporation.
Botulinum Toxin Cosmetic treatments are growing in popularity. We all want to look younger and feel more confident. Botulinum Toxin treatments allows the professionals at our practice to refine your appearance with artistry through injectable, purified botulinum toxin. When Botulinum Toxin Cosmetic is injected into the wrinkles, the toxin relaxes the muscles of the injected area and smoothing the skin.
Botulinum Toxin Cosmetic treatments performed at Smile4Life Dental are very safe. Typically, anesthetics are not required, because the injection is delivered with an ultra-thin needle and in small doses. Botulinum Toxin Cosmetic injections disrupt nerve signals to the muscles. The muscles then are allowed to relax, permitting the wrinkles to smooth out. Usually noticeable in two to three days, the effects can last up to six months, fading gradually from there. Repeated treatments provide for more prolonged results, extending the time between injections.
A common misconception is that Botox actually paralyzes the muscles in the face. Although this can happen with extreme amounts of Botox, most physicians strive to inject just the amount that allows the patient to have some limited activity but not so much that they have overactivity of the areas.
