What is Botox® Cosmetic Treatment?
Behind the brand name, Botox® is known as botulinus toxin A. This is a therapeutic muscle-relaxing agent derived from the bacteria Clostridium Botulinum. The FDA approved the treatment of Botox® initially for treatment of eye muscle spasms. Later on, Botox® Cosmetic treatment was approved for other aspects of facial skin rejuvenation due to its popularity and high cosmetic treatment value.
What is Botox® Cosmetic Treatment at PearlFection Dentistry in Frederick Maryland?
We sometimes get asked, why would I get Botox at my dentist? The answer is.....who gives more and is better qualified to give injections than a dentist, especially one with advanced training in Botox? Who knows more about the muscles and the anatomy of the head and neck than a dentist? And finally, what doctor do you typically go to every 3 to 6 months anyway for your regular cleanings? Why not get your Botox injections, your teeth cleaning and your teeth whitening, all at the same appointment? The Botox treatment in Frederick and Urbana will most likely not add more than 5 minutes to your overall appointment. So when it comes to Botox in Frederick and Urbana Maryland, PearlFection Dentistry is the logical choice.
The Botox® Cosmetic Procedure
Your qualified dentist at PealFection Dentistry in Urbana will use a very fine needle for a quick cosmetic injection. The injection is centered directly on the facial skin and muscle areas in question. Although you may experience very brief, mild discomfort during the injection, the treatment is extremely safe and effective, and takes only a few minutes of your time. Recovery time is nearly immediate allowing you to continue about your day after the procedure.
Botox® Cosmetic Results Duration
You may experience mild bruising or tender skin and muscle prior to a Botox® procedure. These post treatment feelings are absolutely normal, and usually go away within a few days to a week in some cases. Results from a Botox® Cosmetic treatment may last anywhere from three to four months. Although, repeated treatments usually prolong and extend desired results.
