I’m Considering Botox: Why should I choose an oral surgeon?

Botox DubuqueHave you developed signs of aging? Do you wish you could change the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles on your face? If you are looking for a non-invasive cosmetic enhancement that can help promote a youthful and energized appearance, Botox might be the ideal treatment for you. Our oral surgeon provides Botox injections to help members of our community regain their self-esteem and improve their appearance. Choosing an oral and maxillofacial surgeon (OMS) is beneficial because an OMS has a wealth of education and experience working with the intricacies of facial anatomy, including muscles, nerve endings, and the oral cavity.

The Education and Training of an OMS

An oral and maxillofacial surgeon undergoes extensive education and training to operate as a specialist. On top of earning a DDS, an OMS will earn an additional advanced degree and perform rigorous training. This expertise means that your doctor will be intimately in tune with the external and internal structures of the face and mouth.

How Botox Can Improve the Appearance of Wrinkles

Botox is a temporary and non-invasive solution for concealing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles—especially those that form around the mouth, eyes, and forehead. Wrinkles form when facial muscles contract repeatedly when a person makes expressions or smiles.

Injected superficially into facial structure, Botox acts as a mild paralyzing agent near facial muscles where wrinkles occur. Unlike invasive procedures like eye lifts or face lifts, Botox is a quick, same-day treatment that does not require anesthesia or cutting and suturing of delicate tissue. Receiving Botox will not leave scars or permanent changes to the appearance of the face.

After treatment, patients can see results of Botox injections within a few days. Since Botox is not permanent, those who wish to maintain their results will need to return to our practice periodically for treatment.

If you are interested in how Botox can improve signs of again, we recommend calling our practice to schedule a consultation with our oral surgeon. At your appointment, our team can address your concerns and questions to help you determine whether this treatment is right for you.
