BOTOX® Cosmetic can Refresh Your Facial Appearance
The aging process often results in fine lines, wrinkles, and crow's feet. A facial appearance that you are unhappy with can have a negative impact on your confidence, quality of life, and overall outlook. Fortunately, Dr. Michael J. Appleton offers an easy and convenient BOTOX® Cosmetic injections at their Slidell, LA, dental practice. Men and women worldwide have been using BOTOX Cosmetic to reduce signs of aging and achieve a more youthful appearance for years. This treatment can also be highly beneficial for patients who have not yet experienced significant wrinkling or facial lines and want a preventive measure to avoid deep wrinkles in the future.
BOTOX® Cosmetic Overview
Smiling, frowning, squinting, and other facial movements eventually cause wrinkles and creases to form and, over time, deepen. By prohibiting these muscle contractions, you can enjoy a rejuvenated appearance. Regarded as one of the most popular methods of diminishing wrinkles and fine lines in the world, BOTOX Cosmetic is a trusted, FDA-approved method of treating and temporarily improving the appearance of crow's feet, frown lines, and wrinkles. BOTOX Cosmetic contains minute amounts of a refined botulinum toxin protein that are safe and effective for cosmetic use. The solution is injected into problem areas on the face and blocks nerve impulses which cause repetitive muscle contractions that lead to facial wrinkles and lines. In some cases, our doctors may also recommend the use of BOTOX injections for treating temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorder.
Simple and Safe Treatment
BOTOX Cosmetic is extremely safe. There are virtually no serious risks imposed from injections. Some patients feel a slight pinch during treatment, but it is typically only minor. At Oak Harbor Family Dentistry, your injections will be administered by Dr. Appleton. He has been specially trained to safely provide BOTOX Cosmetic for the best results.
Before beginning your procedure, Dr. Appleton will ask you to make certain facial expressions in order to locate the muscles causing most significant lines and wrinkles, and then carefully inject the solution in those areas. Each dose of BOTOX Cosmetic is carefully measured by a certified professional at our office, so you can experience a safe treatment and achieve your desired results. The injections take less than ten minutes, and can be repeated every three to four months to maintain your results.
In some cases, we may be able to inject BOTOX Cosmetic during your initial consultation so you can achieve a rejuvenated, youthful appearance sooner than later.
BOTOX® Cosmetic Candidacy
Patients who are pregnant or nursing should not undergo this treatment. During a private consultation, you can define your problem areas to Dr. Appleton, and he will conduct an evaluation of your overall health to ensure there are no underlying medical conditions. In some cases, we may be able to inject BOTOX Cosmetic during your initial consultation so you can achieve a rejuvenated, youthful appearance sooner than later.
