Botox
BOTOX Cosmetic® treatment, the most popular, non-surgical cosmetic treatment in North America, temporarily reduces and softens frown lines, forehead creases, crow’s feet near the eyes and thick bands in the neck. By temporarily blocking the nerve impulses, the muscles that cause wrinkles relax, giving the skin a smoother, more refreshed appearance.

This treatment offers a number of advantages for women and men seeking wrinkle reduction. It’s a trusted therapeutic choice used by millions for true anti-aging results.

Used in a medical setting as an injectable form of sterile, purified protein, small doses of Botox® block the release of a chemical called acetylcholine by nerve cells that signal muscle contraction. By selectively interfering with the underlying muscles’ ability to contract, existing expression lines are smoothed out and, in most cases, are nearly invisible in 2 weeks.

Botox® treatment has a long and well-established safety history. While most people think of Botox® treatments as a wrinkle treatment, it has actually been in use for over 20 years for the effective treatment of a range of medical conditions. Botox® treatment is used in Children’s Hospitals to help treat, infant hip disorders, malformation of feet in infants, cerebral palsy, spina bifida, due to the fact that it helps relax muscles. Botox® treatment is also one of the most researched medicines in the world.

Why would this service even be offered at a dental office? The answer is simple… Botox® injections and Dentistry really do go hand in hand. Dentists have extensive and comprehensive knowledge of musculature, and anatomy of the face, head, and neck. They are also accustomed to constantly giving injections of local anesthetic to these particular areas. These skills are what makes Dentists the ideal candidates to provide this service. Another benefit of seeing your Dentist for Botox Cosmetic® treatments, is that it also provides a level of privacy and discreetness for the patient, by simply being able to say you have a dentist appointment.
