Botox is an injectable FDA-approved serum to reduce or eliminate fine lines and wrinkles on your face, specifically:
This age-defying treatment is one of the most popular cosmetic procedures available, and can significantly improve your appearance.
Botox is also helpful in treating TMJ disorder, a condition that impairs the proper functioning of your temporomandibular joint, which is responsible for joining your lower jawbone to your skull.
Dr. Callicutt and Dr. Dayries have been administering Botox treatments for over 10 years and are experts in the process. When you get Botox at Aesthetic & Integrative Dentistry, you can rest assured that they perform your treatment safely and that you achieve exceptional results.
To understand how Botox works as an anti-aging treatment, it’s helpful to first understand how wrinkles form.
Wrinkles develop as a result of your skin repeatedly folding in on itself, such as when you furrow your brow or scrunch up your nose. Over time, those folds in your skin get deeper and more pronounced, creating a wrinkle.
Botox treats your wrinkles by preventing the muscles underneath your skin from contracting. This, in turn, keeps your skin from creasing into a wrinkle. The longer your skin goes without folding in on itself, the more time your body has to naturally build it back up and smooth out the wrinkle.
In this way, Botox both treats existing wrinkles and prevents the formation of new wrinkles.
The process of getting Botox is so quick and painless that many patients schedule the appointment to take place during their lunch hour and go back to work immediately after. Your provider simply marks off your treatment site and then uses a thin needle to administer the injection.
Most patients describe the injection as relatively painless and liken it to getting snapped with a rubber band. If you’re concerned about any potential pain, your provider can use a topical anesthetic to numb your treatment site beforehand.
In addition to Botox, Aesthetic & Integrative Dentistry offers cosmetic treatments with dermal fillers, like Juvéderm® XC and Voluma® XC.
These fillers work by stimulating collagen production and adding more volume to your skin, giving it a more plump and youthful appearance while smoothing out wrinkles.
