BOTOX® treatment is the choice of millions of people for fighting signs of aging. Although it’s not a permanent treatment it is one of the most effective, providing results that aren’t comparable with other treatments and procedures. Here at Carnegie Dental Clinic, we are proud to offer this cosmetic option to our patients and encourage you to learn more about it.
What is BOTOX®?
BOTOX® is a purified protein serum approved by the FDA for cosmetic use, and it has been proven to be an effective way of treating a variety of issues that come along with aging. It can be used for treating dynamic wrinkles in a variety of areas around the face, most commonly around the mouth, beside the eyes, the forehead, between the brows, and on the neck.
How Does BOTOX® Work?
BOTOX® works by paralyzing the muscles just below the skin. This puts them in a relaxed state, helping to mitigate the appearance of wrinkles in the vicinity. A wide range of dynamic wrinkles related to aging can be temporarily eliminated with BOTOX® treatments.
Recovery is a breeze when compared to alternative methods like plastic surgery. In fact, there is no recovery time at all, and the procedure doesn’t leave any marks or scars. BOTOX® treatment can last up to four months with variation from person to person, and repeat procedures will eventually be needed to maintain optimal effect. We can sit down with you and help you structure a treatment plan that best accommodates your unique needs and goals.
Who is a Good Candidate for BOTOX® treatment?
Adults dealing with undesirable dynamic wrinkles on their face are good candidates for this treatment. The ideal patient will also harbor realistic expectations for this procedure and its outcome.
