We’re among the growing number of dentists in the U.S. who offer botulinum toxin, better known as Botox. When injected into specific areas, it blocks the release of acetylcholine, which causes muscles to contract. By inhibiting it, it temporarily paralyzes your muscles to allow them to relax.
Often, when you think about Botox, reducing the appearance of wrinkles comes to mind; however, the benefits of the injections are more diverse. Now, it’s also commonly used for dental therapeutic procedures to retrain muscles while also decreasing pain.
No matter if you’re interested in Botox’s dental or cosmetic benefits, we’ll create the customized treatment plan you need to improve your quality of life and your confidence.
Botox is an FDA-approved treatment for several ailments, like uncontrollable eye blinking, lazy eye, and improving the appearance of frown lines. By injecting it into specific muscles groups, it can relieve many issues that impact your daily life and your confidence. After just one appointment, it can be used to resolve:
After treating the area, it’s normal to experience slight redness or swelling at the injection site; however, they will dissipate within a few days.
In addition to Botox, we also offer cosmetic fillers, like Juvederm in Reno. Facial fillers rejuvenate your skin and eliminate wrinkles by replacing soft tissue volume loss. By injecting a hyaluronic gel under your skin, depressions and sagging can be reversed.
As you age, you’ll naturally lose collagen and fat, which will cause your skin to develop wrinkles and fine lines. With a cosmetic filler, it adds volume to the creases and folds to replace the fat and collagen you have lost over the years. You’ll achieve a supple and younger-looking appearance in as little as 20 minutes while enjoying long-lasting results.
It’s normal to experience slight redness, swelling, or numbness at the injection site, which only last for a few days. It’s best to refrain from strenuous activities for 24 hours after your treatment; however, you can return to your normal activities immediately after your session.
