Do you have any wrinkles on your face? Do you like them? Not very many of us like the way wrinkles make us look. Some wrinkles can make us seem to be perpetually angry or like we are in constant worry. Although some people say wrinkles add character, for most of us, wrinkles just add age to our appearance. Take a look at some of our before and after photos to see the difference non-surgical Botox treatments made for some of our patients.
Most of us have heard of Botox by now — it has been touted by the media for years, used by many celebrities, and is now an accepted mainstream treatment for wrinkles. But what is it, really?
Botox is botulinum toxin that is obtained from bacteria and purified. It has been used safely to treat dynamic wrinkles for decades, and is the number one minimally invasive, or non-surgical, cosmetic procedure performed in the United States.
Botox works on wrinkles that are formed by muscle movement, also known as expression lines. These are lines that are caused by facial expressions such as squinting (crow’s feet), frowning (the lines between the eyes), and more. The muscles creating these lines are temporarily blocked by the Botox injections, softening, reducing, or eliminating the wrinkles. The skin remains smooth, giving you a more youthful appearance. Repeat treatments are necessary to keep up the wrinkle resistance, but most patients find that Botox results can last three to six months, or even longer after long-term use.
As one of our valued patients, you already know the care and experience we provide in our dental and cosmetic treatments. It makes sense to have this cosmetic procedure done by someone you can trust. We look at this treatment as an extension of the work we already do in creating and maintaining a beautiful smile for you. We are part of a select group of professionals dedicated to providing the best care possible, and we are proud members of the American Academy of Facial Esthetics. What that means to you is that we are committed to staying up to date and undertaking continuing education to bring you the very best cosmetic results.
