Here at Plantation Dental Care we offer a number of cosmetic dental procedures to improve a patient’s smile and restore their confidence and so it seems only natural that we should also offer a treatment which goes hand in hand to help maintain a youthful look.
Once viewed as an expensive surgery available only at plastic surgery clinics, Botox helps reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles on the face, thus giving a smoother complexion. The end result is that the person looks and feels great. As a clinic we’re no longer focused solely on teeth but also with improving the overall facial aesthetics. Although at first it might seem strange to visit your dentist for this type of treatment, dentists are very skilled when it comes to giving precision injections and have a good understanding of the face and neck, so in reality it makes perfect sense.
The treatment consists of the use of tiny needles to inject diluted Botox into the skin which prevents the muscles from contracting and in turn temporarily halts the appearance of wrinkles. This gives a smoother fresh looking complexion. Without wrinkles, the skin is relaxed and a person looks far younger than their years. Once associated mainly with celebrities, today people from all walks of life are enjoying the benefits of Botox.
Botox is not just a cosmetic procedure it also has therapeutic effects and can be used on patients who grind and clench their teeth excessively. Botox can make it hard to continue this habit, since it helps to relax the facial muscles and thus doing so, prevents further damage to the teeth. Botox is also known to help people who suffer from frequent headaches and can be used as a treatment in the underarms to prevent excessive sweating.
Depending on a person’s metabolism Botox lasts between 3-4 months although with repeated use this can be longer. Generally Botox is used to help reduce frown lines and creases on the forehead, as well as to treat crow’s lines close to the eyes and unsightly lines that sit above the upper lip. The process takes only a few minutes and the results become apparent after a couple of weeks. With our careful monitored treatment, results are both safe and predictable.
