Ask Franklin, OH area dentist how facial Botox injection treatment changes you
When patients think about their smiles, they don’t always consider how the rest of their facial aesthetics affect their overall appearance. At K&E Advanced Dentistry, our team of professionals are aware of the benefits of using cosmetic injectables to enhance one’s appearance outside of just the smile! Treatment for Franklin, OH area patients may include Botox injections during a patient’s dental recall appointment.
What is Botox?
Botox is a neuromodulator that focuses on reducing and even eliminating fine lines, wrinkles, and folds that develop due to muscle tension. In the facial area, muscles can cause wrinkles to form around the upper third of the face, typically resulting in:
- Crow’s feet
- Forehead folds
- Glabellar lines (the “elevens” between the eyebrows)
How does facial Botox change your appearance?
The above-mentioned areas are often troublesome for patients who are trying to fight the signs of aging. With the use of Botox injections, the muscles can relax and therefore, smooth the skin as a result. Many patients love the youthful appearance they can achieve with Botox injections at their dental practice.
Why choose a dentist for Botox injections?
Our dentist is a proud member of the American Academy of Facial Esthetics, and works with patients to provide this and many other facial products to achieve a youthful appearance quickly and easily during recall dental visits. In addition to Botox injections, our team also offers several dermal fillers including Juvéderm, Belotero Balance, and Radiesse. These hyaluronic acid fillers add volume right into wrinkles and folds, and can be used in conjunction with Botox injections. Patients can enjoy a full “liquid face lift” at the dental office. Dentists are well-versed in the use of needles, often providing local anesthetics for patients prior to their treatments. This same skill and expertise is applied to the application of dermal fillers and neuromodulators for turning back the hands of time.
Is Botox safe?
Botox is formulated with botulinum toxin type A, which is safe. Most patients are not allergic to this formulation and can enjoy results without any side effects. Minor side-effects may include itching, redness, and tenderness at the injection site, but this is often short-term, lasting just a few days before they subside. The results from Botox can last six months or longer, making it a wonderful option for patients who want a long-term solution, but not permanent changes. Most of our patients who undergo Botox injections have touch-ups done at their recall visits every six months.
Why consider facial rejuvenation?
Everyone wants to maintain their youthful look, and after the age of 30, many patients begin to see the development of fine lines and wrinkles due to skin laxity. Skin laxity develops because of the loss of collagen and elastin in the skin. This causes imperfections to form and patients start to seek solutions. While plastic surgery is always a reliable way to eliminate fine lines and wrinkles, it is not the most conservative method. Additionally, surgery comes with many issues such as cost, recovery time, and risk of infection. Cosmetic injectables are more commonly used because they can be done quickly and easily in the dental office. They are safe, effective, and affordable, especially when compared to surgical interventions. Many patients love how easy it is to have their treatment done at the same time as their dental cleaning and examination with the team at K&E Advanced Dentistry. Patients are encouraged to ask about Botox injections when they visit us and determine if they can benefit from this treatment in conjunction with other cosmetic dentistry solutions available in the practice.
