Can dentists offer BOTOX? The answer is a definite yes! Dentists already have extensive knowledge in facial muscles and tissues. Additionally, dentists in any speciality 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 is also commonly used for TMJ treatment and treatment of migraines. BOTOX works by blocking signals from 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! 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 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.
