Can dentists offer BOTOX and Restylane? The answer is a definite yes! Dentists already have extensive knowledge in facial muscles and tissues. Additionally, dentists in any specialty are often particularly skilled in delivering virtually painless injections.
BOTOX Cosmetic is an FDA-approved prescription medicine that is injected into various points in facial muscles to smooth wrinkles and improve appearance. BOTOX works by blocking signals from nerves to the muscles so that the muscles can no longer contract. This relaxes and softens wrinkles. Imagine getting rid of frown lines or crow's feet during your dental visit! BOTOX results are not permanent. They typically last four to six months. The treatment requires periodic visits in order to maintain the smooth appearance.
Restylane is another cosmetic procedure that we provide that can help restore volume around the mouth and smooth out those aging lines and wrinkles. It can also be used for lip enhancement. Restylane is similar to BOTOX in the fact that it is injected into the skin. The clear Restylane gel is formulated to act like the body's natural hyaluronic acid, which works to help naturally correct wrinkles and folds in the skin.
BOTOX and Restylane are prescribed cosmetic therapy solutions and are not for everyone. Ask us for more information about our facial cosmetic services and how we can incorporate them into your office visits. We will work together to establish the best treatment plan for you.
