What is BOTOX®?

BOTOX® is a regulated formula of botulinum toxin that is typically utilized medically to help treat patients struggling with muscle spasms and discomfort. By injecting this into damaged or affected muscles, the substance can work to prevent unwanted movements that could result in pain or even impede proper healing in the body. Furthermore, BOTOX® can be used aesthetically to keep facial muscles from creating wrinkles and fine lines, allowing you to enjoy a smoother face.

Who is a Good Candidate for BOTOX®?

Not every patient is going to be eligible for BOTOX®, such as those who are pregnant, have skin disorders, deep facial scarring, or certain neuromuscular diseases. For this reason, you’ll need to undergo a thorough consultation and examination with our team so we can determine if this treatment is right for you. Good candidates for BOTOX® are usually in their late 20s or older and want to fix facial flaws such as:

  • Lines between the eyebrows
  • Crow’s feet
  • Horizontal forehead lines
  • Muscle spasms
  • Lines in the corners of their mouth
  • Smoker’s lines

For those who are suffering from a temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorder, BOTOX® can effectively relieve the muscles in the face and reduce tension in the jaw. This treatment can also alleviate headaches, discomfort caused by teeth grinding or clenching, and even serious jaw strain.

If you still can’t find what you’re looking for, feel free to contact our office to speak with a member of our dental team.

Is BOTOX Safe?

BOTOX is safe when administered by a trained dental professional, like our team at Milton Hill Dental. BOTOX is derived from a purified strain of the botulinum toxin. It is safe for most patients with good health. Your dentist will learn more about your health history to ensure the risk of any potential reactions is minimal. Only 36 adverse reactions have been reported in more than 10 years. However, most reactions resulted from underlying issues and not from BOTOX. The most common side effects include redness, bruising, and tenderness at the injection sites, which are temporary.

Is BOTOX Permanent?

The FDA has approved BOTOX to treat wrinkles and fine lines. It paralyzes muscles temporarily to improve the appearance of wrinkles. Although it is effective, it isn’t a permanent solution. Your body eliminates it naturally over 3-6 months. You can enjoy long-lasting results with regular maintenance injections. Your cosmetic dentist in Milton will create a personalized treatment plan to restore a youthful appearance.

Why is BOTOX So Popular?

BOTOX continues to rank among the most popular elective services because it is non-invasive. It’s a quick and affordable alternative to surgery. You don’t have to worry about scalpels and sutures. There’s no downtime or long recovery. You can see results in just 24-72 hours.

Does BOTOX Remove Wrinkles?

BOTOX doesn’t remove wrinkles permanently, but it is effective at greatly reducing their noticeability. BOTOX is recommended for dynamic wrinkles, which are caused by facial movements. Injecting BOTOX into specific muscles will block nerve signals. This prevents your muscles from contracting to smooth your face. You can look years younger without needing surgery.
