Botox® as an Esthetic Treatment

Botox® is an injectable substance that is used safely and effectively to relax facial muscles to correct existing lines and prevent new wrinkles from forming.  It will improve the appearance of frown lines, forehead creases, crow's feet and gummy smiles.

Treatment Benefits:

  • Safe and proven results
  • FDA Approved
  • Non-surgical
  • No down time
  • Long-lasting results
  • Effectively minimizes lines for a more youthful appearance
  • Prevents the signs of aging

Are treatments painful?

Dental practitioners are experts in injections and anesthetic techniques for minimally or painless treatments.  Usually the injections feel like a pinprick or not even that.

How long does Botox® last?

Botox® results will reach full efficacy in 2 weeks after treatment.  Everyone metabolizes Botox® differently, so results will vary but typically last between 3-4 months.  After each re-treatment, it requires less Botox® to produce similar results and lines will return as less severe since the muscles are not trained to relax.

Safety and Side Effects:

Botox® has been used for medical purposes for over 50 years and is FDA approved for safe and effective treatments.  Minor bruising and swelling may occur temporarily after treatment and it is best to avoid blood thinner medications prior to treatments.
