COSMETIC BENEFITS OF BOTOX®

Beyond its therapeutic uses, Botox® is renowned for its ability to enhance your appearance by reducing the visible signs of aging. Botox® works by temporarily relaxing the muscles responsible for wrinkles, leading to a smoother, more youthful complexion. Here are some of the key cosmetic benefits of Botox®:

Reducing Fine Lines and Wrinkles:
Botox® effectively diminishes the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, particularly those caused by repeated facial expressions such as frowning, squinting, or smiling. Common treatment areas include:

  • Forehead lines
  • Crow’s feet (lines around the eyes)
  • Frown lines (between the eyebrows)

Lifting Eyebrows:
As we age, the skin around our eyes can begin to droop, giving a tired or sad appearance. Botox® can be used to lift the eyebrows, opening up the eye area and creating a more alert and youthful look.

Enhancing Facial Symmetry:
Botox® can help improve facial symmetry by relaxing specific muscles, creating a more balanced and harmonious facial appearance.

BOTOX® FOR TMJ AND FACIAL DISCOMFORT

Botox®, commonly known for its cosmetic applications, is also a highly effective treatment for managing facial pain and TMJ disorders (TMD). TMD can cause significant pain and affect your daily life, leading to headaches, jaw pain, and difficulty chewing. By injecting Botox® into specific muscles, we can help reduce muscle tension and alleviate pain associated with TMD. This minimally invasive treatment can provide relief that allows you to enjoy a better quality of life. Visit our page about Temporomandibular Joint Discomfort to learn more.

DENTAL BOTOX® FAQS

We are happy to answer any questions you might have about Botox® services. If you are curious, start by reading the answers to our frequently asked questions.

HOW LONG DOES DENTAL BOTOX LAST?

The effective life of Botox® will be unique to each person and treatment. Generally, Dental Botox® loses its effect after about six months. After this time some patients may choose to have another Botox® procedure to maintain its effects.

WHAT SHOULD I AVOID AFTER BOTOX®?

After Botox® patients should avoid rubbing or touching their face, lying on the face, and extreme exercise. You may wash your face but do so very cautiously. It is best to give your body a resting period after Botox® injection. We also recommend that patients avoid sun exposure and alcohol for the first few days following their Botox® procedure. After receiving Botox® at Baltimore Dental Co., you will be provided with detailed instructions of what to expect.

HOW SHOULD I SLEEP AFTER BOTOX®?

Sleeping on your back is important after Botox® injections because they need time to settle into your muscles. Laying on your face could prevent the injections from settling in and lead to unwanted results.

CAN I DRINK COFFEE AFTER BOTOX®?

For 24-48 hours after Botox®, avoid coffee and other types of caffeine. Caffeine consumption may contribute to swelling which may cause discomfort at the Botox sites. After the first 24-48 hours, you may drink coffee and caffeinated drinks as you please.

CAN BOTOX IMPROVE YOUR SMILE?

Injecting Botox between the lip and skin will relax the orbicularis muscle, resulting in smoother lips and a more attractive smile. In addition to eliminating lip wrinkles, Botox can also make lips appear bigger and more youthful.
