You may be unable to avoid getting older, but you don't have to suffer from wrinkles and lines. Botox injections are offered at Town Center Cosmetic Dentistry for patients to enjoy smoother skin without plastic surgery.
Botox Reaches the Source of Wrinkles
Wrinkles and fine lines often develop in areas where you frequently frown or contract your facial muscles. Botox injections prevent signals from traveling from your nerves to muscles, stopping contractions and allowing your muscles to relax. Botox is made from the Clostridium botulinum bacteria and is purified to ensure your safety. Once the muscles are relaxed, the skin over them becomes smoother both during movement and at rest. In addition to cosmetic treatments to reduce wrinkles, Botox can be used to treat muscle pain and headaches due to TMJ disorders such as bruxism (teeth grinding).
Botox from a Dentist?
It might seem a little unusual to receive Botox treatments at your dentist's office, but Dr. Bergeron is uniquely qualified to provide the treatments. Dr. Bergeron received specialized training that allows her to perform a variety of treatments and procedures on the maxillofacial area, the area that extends from the chin to the forehead. Thanks to her extensive experience and skill in treating facial areas, she can precisely target the muscles that cause wrinkles or facial pain.
Botox injections are often used to treat:
Vertical lines between the eyes
Forehead lines and furrows
Wrinkles around the mouth
Facial pain and headaches due to bruxism (teeth grinding)
Quick and Easy Treatment
Botox injections are virtually painless! You may feel a slight pricking or stinging sensation during the injection, similar to the sensation caused by eyebrow tweezing or threading. Some softening of your lines and wrinkles may be noticeable within 72 hours after you receive Botox injections, although it may take approximately 14 days for Botox to take effect completely. Botox effects typically last around 3 months but that can vary from patient to patient so Dr. Bergeron creates custom treatment plans and maintenance schedules for each patient based on their individual needs..
