BOTOX in Delray Beach, FL
Our patients love looking and feeling great after receiving one of many cosmetic procedures done in our dental office in Delray Beach. We help patients overcome the signs of aging every day in our practice. That’s why we are offering one of the most popular, non-surgical cosmetic treatments available. Botox Cosmetic has been known to enhance a beautiful smile and is a great addition to your scheduled cosmetic dentistry procedure.
What is Botox treatment?
Botox is a cosmetic injection containing botulinum toxin. It is a safe way to reduce unwanted wrinkles temporarily. Because it is a temporary cosmetic treatment, in order to get the best results, a patient will need to repeat the procedure, much like teeth whitening procedures. It has been approved by the FDA to treat moderate to severe frown lines and is used to treat other symptoms such as migraines.
What are the benefits of Botox treatments?
Besides the obvious benefits of having Botox Cosmetic treatments, such as removing unwanted facial wrinkles and frown lines, there are a few others to mention. When used along with your cosmetic dental procedure, Botox Cosmetic can:
- Reduce muscle tension that causes headaches
- Reduces the effects of migraines
- Reduces the effects of Myofacial Pain Syndrome (MPS)
- Reduce the signs of aging
- Help renew self-confidence
How does Botox Cosmetic work?
The Botox injections weakens muscles that are responsible for age-related wrinkles and unsightly lines and interrupts the motor nerve endings. Your doctor will perform a series of injections with a small needle. The typical injection sites are the forehead, between the eyes (glabellar region), around the corner of the eyes (crow’s feet) and the area around the lips. Once the nerve endings have been interrupted, the muscle is unable to contract, making this treatment a “muscle relaxer” that temporarily stops the wrinkles in the skin from forming.
Does Botox hurt?
Patients who have this treatment typically do not complain about pain due to the size of the needle used. The needle is very tiny and the area can be numbed with a topical treatment prior to injections. In most cases, patients have reported not feeling any pain at all during the injection process. Our doctor has many years of experience injecting Botox and he understands that your comfort is priority.
What are the side effects of Botox?
Botox injections are typically safe when performed by experienced doctors such as Dr. Henry Lennon and Dr. Renee Litvak. While most patients do not experience any negative side effects of Botox injections, there have been reported cases outside of our office of allergic reactions, eyelid drooping, crooked smile, rash, headache, bruising and redness. This is why it is important to choose a doctor who is an expert at delivering injections.
When will I see results from Botox treatments?
Botox treatments in the office typically take anywhere from 5 to 15 minutes, depending on each case. Treatments can provide up to 4 months of great results, reducing wrinkles and frown lines. Typically, a patient may start to see results within 3-4 days. However, your treatment can take up to 14 days to take its full effect in some cases. Please make sure to wait until the 14 day mark before assessing the full treatment results.
