Our West Bloomfield dentists are always working hard to provide more treatments to help our patients love their miles. One treatment that we offer is Botox; many patients wonder how Botox fits in with aesthetic dentistry—we’re here to give you some more information about how this treatment works!
The purpose of Botox treatment is to erase unsightly wrinkles and facial lines. This wrinkles emerge due to regular muscle contractions in the face. When our Botox team injects Botox into these muscles, the muscles are able to relax. This allows the skin to “bounce back,” so that the patient’s skin appears smoother and younger.
The entire treatment process takes only one appointment to complete. You’ll start to notice the effects of Botox in a week or so.
Botox is a treatment that needs to be repeated every six months or so in order to maintain smooth, wrinkle-free skin. When you come in to meet with our West Bloomfield Botox dentists, we’ll assess your facial structure to determine which muscles should be targeted in order to lessen existing wrinkles.
Botox has additional benefits for patients who suffer from TMJ problems and bruxism. These patients deal with strained and tense muscles, which can cause them to develop uneven bites or to deal with jaw problems. Thoughtfully applied Botox treatment can relieve this tension and give the patient relief. Botox has even been used to treat chronic headaches.
