How Dentists Can Help Reduce Fine Lines and More with BOTOX
At our Fayetteville, AR dental office, our cosmetic dentist can give you a winning smile and help you combat fine lines and wrinkles!
It makes sense. Dentists, after all, are maxillofacial experts. BOTOX in the hands of a skilled dentist is BOTOX in the right hands.
What Does BOTOX Do?
As we age, fine lines and furrows crop up on our faces. It’s inevitable. These lines, furrows, and even crow's feet (lines at the corners of the eyes) are caused by squinting, smiling, frowning, and furrowing our brows across decades.
The good news is our cosmetic dentist can treat these fine lines and furrows with BOTOX. No surgery. No recovery time. Just an enhanced appearance following BOTOX injections.
Other benefits of BOTOX include:
- Migraine or chronic headache relief
- TMJ pain relief
- Teeth grinding deterrent and pain relief
How Does Botox Work?
Depending on what is being treated, our dental professional injects BOTOX into key areas just below the skin.
The injections are minor and only minimally invasive, but you may notice a dot or discoloration. This will fade within a few days. Most patients insist that BOTOX injections are virtually painless.
BOTOX works by relaxing muscle contractions in the face. This does not mean that muscles are frozen. On the contrary, muscles are more relaxed, which eases lines and wrinkles.
Following your BOTOX treatment, you can resume activities after about four hours, and within months, you will notice lines decreasing as your skin smooths out across more relaxed muscles.
Depending on the reason for your BOTOX therapy, you can enjoy a smoother, more youthful appearance and pain relief in overworked jaw muscles.
At Northwest Arkansas Family Dental, we help you feel relaxed and comfortable during your BOTOX treatment. Following your treatment, our cosmetic dentist will advise you on any aftercare or follow up.
