Botox treatment is used for facial and dental purposes. It is a wellâ€“researched and safe prescription treatment, primarily used by certified doctors and dentists to help patients reduce the appearance of wrinkles and creases.
Botox is also the brand name for botulinum toxin, which acts as a neuromodulator that lessens the muscle contractions of the area being treated. Botox treatment allows skin to look smooth and for the muscle(s) to stay steady in place.
Keep in mind, not everyone may be a suitable candidate for Botox. A consultation with a trained professional will help determine if the treatment is right for you.
Botox is a purified natural protein found in plants, soil, and water.
The protein creates temporary muscle paralysis by blocking nerve impulse exchanges from the brain to your facial muscles.
Botox dentistry is used for medical or cosmetic reasons in the oral and facial areas.
Here are the top reasons why people choose Botox dentistry:
Botox injections are minimally invasive and have minimal risk.
A miniature needle containing a small amount of Botox is injected into the treatment area. You may feel a very slight burn during the injection, but there is no surgery nor anesthesia involved.
With virtually no recovery period required, you are free to resume your normal activities right away postâ€“treatment, with only few minor adaptations needed for a few hours. Only specific muscles in the designated areas are treated, so all other muscles will function as per normal.
The effects of Botox treatment typically lasts between 3 to 4 months. The full duration of its effects will ultimately depend on your metabolism.
