19 Dec Benefits of Botox Treatments
If you want to shave years from your appearance, Botox may be the answer for you. These minor injections can erase wrinkles and make you look years younger.
With an extensive knowledge of the facial structures and balance in those structures, an oral surgeon is uniquely qualified to provide Botox injections to achieve the facial symmetry that many patients desire.

Over the course of your life, you smile, laugh, cry and frown repeatedly. Those actions form “dynamic wrinkles,” (think crow’s feet and brow lines) and Botox can eliminate those lines that show your age.
A quick Botox injection, completed in just a matter of minutes, can smooth the lines that develop from our facial expressions. Botox injections are virtually painless (you’ll only feel the tiny pinch of the needle), and they require no recovery time, unlike the extensive plastic surgery that may be another alternative for patients wishing to capture a fountain of youth. Botox also tends to be a more budget-friendly option to improve your facial features.
Patients may fear that Botox injections will leave them with an unnatural appearance, but your oral surgeon can plan the treatments carefully to achieve a natural look.
Botox treatments are not permanent, so patients will need to return to the office periodically for additional injections. However, some research suggests that the longer patients do Botox, the longer the treatments last.
While the cosmetic benefits of Botox are well-documented, Botox goes beyond beauty, too. Some research suggests that Botox can be useful in treating muscle twitches, excessive sweating and migraines, for example.
Botox treatments can have side effects, although they are limited, so be sure that you discuss these with the oral surgeon in advance. If you have allergies to any of the components of Botox, alert your oral surgeon to this issue.
