What Is BOTOX®?

BOTOX, also known as onabotulinumtoxinA, is a mild chemical created by the bacterium Clostridium botulinum. It produces a neurotic protein that, when used in small doses, can temporarily block neurotransmitters, which relaxes muscles. As a cosmetic service, BOTOX is the only FDA-approved treatment used to correct wrinkles on the face.

What to Expect During Your Visit

At our office, BOTOX treatments are administered with precision and care. Our certified dentists will first conduct a comprehensive assessment to understand your aesthetic goals and determine the best approach for your treatment. This involves:

  • Consultation: We discuss your concerns and desired outcomes to tailor a treatment plan.
  • Targeted Application: Small amounts of BOTOX are injected into specific muscles, using fine needles to minimize discomfort.
  • Aftercare Advice: We provide you with detailed post-treatment instructions to ensure optimal results.

When Is It Used?

BOTOX can be used both cosmetically and non-cosmetically. At our office, our dentists and team strategically place small injections of BOTOX in desired areas to smooth fine lines and wrinkles across the face, which reduces crow’s feet, diminishes frown lines, shapes brows and lessens forehead lines. This helps produce a more youthful appearance. Our dedicated team will discuss treatment goals with you before your treatment to help ensure you receive the results you desire. This procedure can take as little as 15 minutes to complete, and patients can begin seeing results with 24 to 48 hours, with the effects lasting up to four months. If you are interested in renewing your facial appearance, we invite you to call our office today to learn more and schedule an appointment with our dentists.

The staff is very friendly and very professional. I felt welcomed and very comfortable in an unfamiliar environment. The dentist was very direct and upfront in dealing with my molar, which is severely decaying. I trust TruCare Dental, with my dental needs.
