What are some good cosmetic uses for BOTOX?
If you are happy with the way your smile looks, why not improve the rest of your look with BOTOX treatments? BOTOX cosmetic treatments at our Burnaby, BC dental clinic help patients look refreshed and younger.
BOTOX treatments are particularly well-suited for:
- Forehead lines
- Crow’s feet (lines at the outside corners of the eyes)
- Frown lines (including the “angry 11” that forms above the nose and between the eyebrows)
- Lines around the lips
BOTOX is administered via injection with a very fine needle into specific muscles. There is minimal discomfort during treatment, and it generally takes about three to seven days before its effects are visible. Tips for successful treatment include avoiding alcohol and anti-inflammatory medications a week before undergoing the procedure.
The effects of BOTOX for cosmetic treatment generally lasts four to six months. The muscles that were paralysed by the injection gradually begin to relax, and you may need follow-up treatment.
Side effects with BOTOX are minimal, with temporary bruising as the most common. A minority of people get headaches after treatment, but this is uncommon. Drooping around the injection site can also happen if you rub the area, so it’s best to keep your hands away in the days following treatment.
