Botox® cosmetic has become a household name in the last few decades. Everyone knows Botox is the go-to for smoothing frown lines and wrinkles, as well as many other dynamic lines. There are also other aesthetic reasons to use Botox, including treating a gummy lip or slimming a wide jaw. At Creative Dentistry & Medspa, we offer Botox injections with our cosmetic dental services at our clinic in Sandy Springs, GA.
What Is Botox Cosmetic?
Botox is a neuromodulator that impacts nerve signals to muscles. Botox injections target specific nerves and muscles to block muscle contraction signals. For dynamic lines, Botox relaxes the muscles that create the lines. Botox is FDA-approved to treat the “11s” between the eyebrows and frown lines on the brow. It is also used for crow’s feet at the corner of the eyes. Botox can help relax the upper lip to combat a gummy smile, or smooth bunny lines on the nose. Botox can even slim a square or wide jaw by reducing the size of the masseter (jaw) muscles.
Quick Results with No Downtime
Botox injections can be performed in about 10 minutes. No recovery or downtime is needed after treatment; you can return to work and normal activities after your injections. Botox does take a few days for the effects to work. In 2-3 days you will begin to see lines smooth away or muscles relax. The effects of Botox can last up to four months before another treatment is needed to maintain the results.
