Therapeutic and Cosmetic Botox® Treatments (including Dysport)
Botox is a non-surgical approach to smooth wrinkles
and treat the symptoms associated with Bruxism
What is Botox® Cosmetic?
Botox® Cosmetic is used to improve the appearance of frown lines and crow’s feet by relaxing the muscles that cause wrinkles. Botox is derived from a highly purified protein refined from the Clostridium Botulinum bacterium.
What is Dysport?
Dysport is an alternative treatment option to Botox. Botox and Dysport are 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. Troy Michelson which product is right for you.
How Does Botox® CosmeticWork?
One of the main contributing factors to wrinkles is repeated muscle contractions. Botox works by relaxing muscles, resulting in a smoothed appearance of fine lines and wrinkles where injected.
What Should I Expect With Treatment?
Dr. Michelson will discuss your goals and come up with a customized treatment plan for you. Botox is a minimally invasive procedure that does not require 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 down time. Most people find that they can resume normal activities just following the procedure.
Results may be noticed within 24 to 48 hours after treatment, with effects lasting up to 4 months.
Why Choose A Dentist For Botox® Treatment?
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.
How Does Botox® Treat Symptoms Associated With Bruxism?
Therapeutic Botox is injected into the jaw muscles responsible for Bruxism, reducing the tension in the jaw. Patients often note improvement in the discomfort of their Bruxism after their first treatment.
What Does Botox® or Dysport Treatment Cost?
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. Michelson to evaluate your customized treatment plan.
