About BOTOX Treatment
BOTOX smooths wrinkles on the face by relaxing the muscles that cause lines. Repeated muscle contractions in the forehead and eye area create forehead wrinkles, crow’s feet and frown lines. A BOTOX injection blocks the release of acetylcholine, a compound that sends messages between nerves. Acetylcholine tells muscles to contract, creating wrinkles. When BOTOX stops your nerves from creating acetylcholine in the area that has lines, the muscles relax and no longer form wrinkles.
Why Might I Need BOTOX?
Most patients who receive BOTOX treatment request it for aesthetic reasons. They want to reduce the appearance of wrinkles on certain parts of their face. Dr. Forgosh may recommend BOTOX if you ask for ways to smooth out facial lines. You will discuss your allergies and medical history before deciding on this cosmetic procedure. BOTOX can address three types of wrinkles:
- Forehead lines appear when the frontalis muscle above your eyebrows contracts.
- Crow’s feet lines come from contractions of the orbicularis oculi muscle at the corners of your eyes.
- Frown lines show when the corrugator and procerus muscles near your eyebrows contract.
Whether BOTOX fits your needs depends on a variety of factors. Dr. Forgosh will go over your options and let you know if injections will help you achieve your treatment goals.
Benefits of BOTOX Injections
Patients who receive BOTOX injections enjoy the following benefits:
- Little discomfort for most patients: For many patients, a BOTOX injection feels like a small pinch. Dr. Forgosh can also numb the treatment area to make the process more comfortable.
- Short appointments: A BOTOX injection session lasts about 10 minutes, making it ideal for patients with busy schedules. You can get your treatment and still have time for the things that matter.
- Results within days: BOTOX takes one to three days to smooth wrinkles in the treated area. You can notice a difference in less than a week in the majority of cases.
Everyone has a different experience with BOTOX treatment. Dr. Forgosh will help you decide if these injections will provide the results you want.
BOTOX at Green Hills Dentistry
During your first treatment session, you can count on Dr. Forgosh to make the process as comfortable as possible. You may request a local anesthetic if you think it will improve the experience. Dr. Forgosh will use a thin needle to inject BOTOX into the muscles that cause your wrinkles. A successful treatment will still allow you to make expressions, since it affects a small area.
We will work with you to create an individualized care plan that suits your cosmetic and dental needs. Dr. Forgosh and his team welcome you to call 610-395-0980 or schedule an appointment using our online booking tool.
