What is Botox?
You may be asking, “Why would a dental practice offer Botox injections for patients?” As it turns out, Dr. Weldon and Elizabeth do not exclusively focus on helping you maintain good oral health. They’re also able to help you treat cosmetic issues, inside and outside your mouth.
For example, some people feel that their facial lines may give them an unrested appearance. Elizabeth can reduce the appearance of these lines caused by common facial movements such as chewing, frowning, or smiling. After treatment, you can expect your face to have a well-rested and more youthful appearance.
If you aren’t familiar, Botox is a prescription medication typically injected into your muscles. The form of Botox used for esthetic purposes is called botulinum toxin A, a purified protein that is FDA approved for treatment of facial lines.
After injection, the chemical enters the muscles and inhibits contraction from occurring, resulting a smooth appearance without altering sensation in the face. You can expect to see effects occur about 3 to 10 days after injection and have results that last between 3 to 4 months.
