Get Your Smile Holiday Ready with Botox Treatment

We all want to feel confident in our smiles. But wrinkles, crow’s feet, and other signs of aging can sometimes make us feel self-conscious in our own skin. You may not initially think your dentist can help with skin problems, but improving the look and confidence of your smile is their goal. Certified dentists can use Botox in Franklin, MI, to help patients improve the natural beauty of their smile. Botox is a safe, FDA-approved treatment option for wrinkles and other fine lines.

How Does Botox in Franklin, MI, Work?

Botox injections contain neurotoxins that act as a kind of muscle relaxation agent. They are injected into the skin of your face and then penetrate into the muscles below. Muscle contractions are the leading cause of wrinkles and other age lines in your smile. When your muscles begin to relax more, your skin becomes smoother and more defined. Botox injections are strategically placed around your face to help reduce the appearance of fine lines on your skin.

Is Botox Safe?

Despite some stigma surrounding it, Botox is completely safe when injected by a trained and certified dentist. Botox is FDA-approved for treating a variety of skin and muscular conditions. Patients may experience some side effects from Botox treatment. The most common side effects are pain, swelling, and redness of the injection site. Symptoms typically only last a day or two. If your symptoms persist or worsen, contact your doctor as soon as possible.

The Botox Timeline

Botox begins working on relaxing your muscles as soon as it’s injected. However, the visual impact of Botox takes a while longer. Most patients report seeing a noticeable improvement in their skin around three to four days after treatment. Botox tends to reach maximum results in about two to three weeks, just in time for the holidays.

Botox treatment can help keep your skin smooth for a few months at a time. Most patients can expect to see Botox ‘wearing off’ between three to six months. Every patient is different, and there’s no way to tell exactly how long an injection will last. However, Botox tends to be a quick procedure, and most patients opt to receive their touch-up injections during their routine six-month dental appointment. If you need Botox earlier, however, you can still schedule an appointment with your dentist for a quick touch-up between cleanings.

Is Botox Right for You?

Most patients are eligible to receive Botox treatment. However, certain medical or skin conditions could reduce the effectiveness of Botox or even make it unsafe to receive Botox injections. Before beginning treatment, your dentist will examine your mouth, face, and neck for any signs of concern. They may also coordinate with your doctor or dermatologist to ensure Botox will be safe and effective for you.
