As the years go by, you'll start to notice the effect that all those laughs, smiles, and tears have on your face in the form of lines and wrinkles. Some say that they give your face character, but if you’d like a little less “character” and a little more youthful vibrancy, BOTOX® can help turn back the clock.
You can find lots of professionals today that are trained to deliver cosmetic BOTOX, and many people are surprised to see dentists among them. But once you understand the process, you’ll see that your Erie dentist is uniquely qualified to safely and comfortably deliver BOTOX.
How BOTOX Works
Once you know how BOTOX works, you’ll see that there are numerous benefits to choosing a dentist to perform this procedure.
BOTOX® is a neurotoxin that is administered via injection and “freezes” specific facial muscles, smooths out existing lines, and helps prevent new ones from forming. The most commonly targeted facial areas with BOTOX are crows’ feet, “angry 11” frown lines that form on the forehead, and marionette or bunny lines around the mouth.
The Benefits of Choosing a BOTOX Dentist
There are several benefits to choosing your Erie dentist to deliver BOTOX injections:
- During their extensive training and education, a dentist becomes intimately familiar with the oral and maxillofacial area, from chin to forehead. This makes your dentist more knowledgeable about this area than many other BOTOX providers.
- Dentists also study muscle movement in this area and how it affects facial expressions. This means that you can trust your dentist to safely inject BOTOX® into the specific location needed to produce the results you desire.
- One thing that dentists do more of than most other healthcare professionals is delivering comfortable injections, whether they’re numbing a tooth for a dental procedure or administering BOTOX to rejuvenate your smile.
- BOTOX has also proved to be effective when used to minimize TMJ pain, including headaches and migraines.
