Are you interested in a non-surgical approach to smooth wrinkles and treat symptoms associated with Bruxism or teeth grinding? Botox cosmetic might be the answer! Dimension Dentistry is pleased to offer Botox treatment for all your cosmetic and therapeutic treatment needs.
Botox® Cosmetic is used to improve the appearance of frown lines and crow’s feet by relaxing the muscles that cause wrinkles. It is derived from a highly purified protein refined from the Clostridium Botulinum bacterium.
Dysport is an alternative treatment option to Botox. Botox and Dysport are the brand names for a similar product. It is like comparing Crest and Colgate toothpaste. For most individuals, Dysport can offer a faster onset with longer-lasting results when compared to Botox. Ask Dr. Kirsten Hooper which product is right for you.
One of the main contributing factors to wrinkles is repeated muscle contractions. It works by relaxing muscles, resulting in a smoothed appearance of fine lines and wrinkles where injected.
We will discuss your goals and come up with a customized treatment plan for you. It is a minimally invasive procedure that does not require an anesthetic. It is administered with a very fine needle under the skin. The actual procedure only takes about 10 -15 minutes with little to no downtime. Most people find that they can resume normal activities just by following the procedure.
Results may be noticed within 24 to 48 hours after treatment, with effects lasting up to 4 months.
A Dentist has over seven years of education and training in the face, head, and jaw. A dentist can evaluate several factors in facial esthetics so that Botox can be administered in a safe and effective manner. To alleviate unnecessary visits to the office, your Botox treatment can be conveniently coordinated with your routine hygiene appointment.
Therapeutic Botox is injected into the jaw muscles responsible for Bruxism, reducing the tension in the jaw. Patients often note an improvement in the discomfort of their Bruxism after their first treatment.
Every patient is different and will require a specific treatment plan tailored to them. Botox and Dysport treatments are billed by the number of units administered. Please contact our office to set up an appointment with Dr. Kirsten Hooper to evaluate your customized treatment plan.
Temporary side effects and rare complications can arise if your body is not in a healthy state when undergoing treatment. Dimension Dentistry strongly believes that your health must come before anything else, so patients looking to start with Botox Cosmetic should be in overall good health before starting treatment. The team at Dimension Dentistry and Dr. Kirsten Hooper will assess your health history and ensure that Botox Cosmetic is right for you.
