What Is BOTOX®?
BOTOX®, also known as botulinum toxin, is a bacteria used to freeze certain facial muscles that have been overworked. The more these muscles are used, the more they strain, causing them to bunch-up and result in the formation of facial wrinkles. Your cosmetic dentist in Lakewood can dilute botulinum toxin and use it in small doses to temporarily smooth out facial lines and wrinkles. As a result, you can look years younger, look less tired or rundown, and feel more confident.
What Cosmetic Imperfections Does BOTOX® Address?
The best way to learn whether this treatment is right for your issues is to schedule a consultation with Dr. Artino to discuss what results you’d like to achieve. Many of our patients who visit us for BOTOX® are often looking to fix some of the following flaws:
- Crow’s feet that form at the far corner of the eyes from smiling or squinting.
- Lines between eyebrows formed from frowning.
- Horizontal lines in the middle of the forehead.
Why Should a Dentist Give You BOTOX®?
At first, visiting a dentist for injections to improve the appearance of wrinkles may seem odd. Perhaps you are considering going to a spa, dermatologist, or other resource for this treatment. However, who else understands the complexity of the facial structures, muscles and tissues better than a dentist? Dr. Artino continues to study and hone his skills in cosmetic procedures that improve the lives of our patients.
What Is Treatment Like?
BOTOX® treatment involves facial injections. However, even if you’re scared of needles, you can rest assured that this cosmetic treatment is completely pain-free because we use one of the smallest medical needles that’s 31-gauge. This is the same needle that diabetics regularly use for insulin injections, to give you an idea of what it is.
After discussing the results you’d like to achieve, Dr. Artino will mark areas of your face that are highly impacted by lines and wrinkles to map out where the injections will be administered. The length of your visit will depend on how many you would like, and each injection takes about five minutes, so appointments typically last anywhere from 15 to 45 minutes.
