As your dental care provider, we have a wide array of services for your convenience. One of these services that we are proud to offer is Botox® facial injections.
What is Botox®?
Botox® is a filler that can help relax muscles in your face. These muscles cause lines, wrinkles, gummy smiles, and pain associated with TMJ. Botox® helps to smooth the face, giving it a younger appearance, and can also help with pain management.
Why do we offer Botox® as a dental practice?
We want to make your life as convenient as possible. At our practice, you can come in for Botox® injections and touch-ups at the same time as your dental appointment. By offering this service, we hope to make your life and hectic schedule a little easier. We are a one-stop shop for you and your family’s dental needs and are proud to include Botox® in the list of services that we offer.
How long does Botox® last?
Botox® takes only a few minutes to inject, but should last from 3-4 months depending on where the injection is.
Is Botox® painful?
Botox® is quick and fairly painless. We may use a topical numbing cream to cut down on any pain or discomfort at the site of the injection. The needles used for Botox® are usually small and the pain associated with the procedure is minimal. While you may have some side effects such as redness, bruising, and swelling after your injection, these should go away fairly quickly.
If you are interested in Botox® injections or just want to learn more about the process, give us a call today. We are happy to answer all of your questions and can add in Botox® services to your next appointment.
