Your dentist is your greatest ally in helping you build a strong, bright, beautiful smile. But beyond addressing your oral health needs, they may also offer additional treatments and services – like lip and cheek fillers or wrinkle removal – that can help you look and feel even better. Why choose a dentist for Botox? The answer is simple.
How Botox Works
Botox is a safe and common treatment used for cosmetic and various medical applications. When injected, the solution acts to calm or halt contractions in those facial muscles that emphasize crows’ feet and wrinkles. After a short session, you can enjoy a more rejuvenated complexion that looks naturally smoother and well-rested. Recovery is normally very rapid, with very little aftercare needed. Even better, the results last 3-6 months, so you only need to make an appointment a few times a year.
Although it’s used most popularly in cosmetic procedures, Botox is also an effective option for treating migraines. When injected into different muscle groups – usually in the head and neck – the solution is able to freeze muscle contractions that contribute to the vise-like, throbbing pain of chronic headaches. If you suffer from constant migraines or jaw and neck pain, Botox could be the ideal solution for you.
Why Choose a Dentist for Botox
Botox should always be administered by a trained and certified professional. That can include aestheticians, nurses, physician assistants, and doctors who provide injections for cosmetic or medical reasons. But before heading to your closest spa or clinic, find out whether your dentist offers Botox cosmetic and medical services.
Your dentist has years of education and training that make their dentistry experience a natural complement to cosmetic procedures like Botox. Dr. Mullins uses his expert knowledge of facial musculature to administer treatment with the help of our caring and efficient staff. Whether you want a fresher appearance or relief from the discomfort of chronic migraines, we can help.
