Botox is an injectable treatment that temporarily relaxes the facial muscles that cause wrinkles and fine lines. It is injected into the muscles of the forehead, eye area, and mouth to smooth crow’s feet, frown lines, laugh lines, and more. Botox can also treat migraines, excessive sweating, muscle spasms in the eyelid area, and neck spasms. At Infinity Dental, Botox is considered a safe treatment, and most patients experience little to no side effects. However, some patients may experience redness or swelling at the injection site. This typically goes away within a few hours after treatment. Slight bruising can sometimes occur as well, but this, too, should resolve quickly.
Botox works by temporarily paralyzing the muscles in the treatment area, which softens the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. This treatment is minimally invasive and has no downtime so you can return to your normal routine quickly after the procedure at our office. The Botox process is simple and quick. We will apply a topical anesthetic to keep you comfortable throughout the procedure. Then, we will inject small amounts of the diluted solution into the areas of your face that you would like to improve. Most people will receive injections to the forehead, brows, crow’s feet, and facial lines. The procedure only takes a few minutes to complete, and you’ll be free to go about your routine immediately.
When injected into the skin, Botox blocks the nerve signals that trigger muscle movements, like frowning or squinting. When the muscles don’t move as often, the skin begins to smooth out, and wrinkles become less noticeable. Although the results of Botox are temporary, most patients appreciate that the treatment can be repeated as often as necessary to maintain their results.
One of the primary uses of Botox is to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines on the face. Botox works by temporarily relaxing the muscles that cause facial expressions, leading to a smoother and more youthful appearance.
Botox can be used as a preventative measure to slow down the development of wrinkles. By starting Botox treatments earlier, individuals can prevent the deepening of existing wrinkles and delay the formation of new ones.
Botox offers a non-surgical alternative to rejuvenate the face. Unlike invasive procedures like facelifts or brow lifts, Botox injections are relatively quick, minimally invasive, and require no downtime for recovery.
Botox can correct facial asymmetry and restore balance to the features. It can help address issues such as drooping eyebrows, uneven smiles, or excessive muscle activity on one side of the face.
