Botox DubuqueAre you unhappy with your appearance? Perhaps you feel that your face shows signs of aging too rapidly for your liking. Or, you might want to take a proactive approach to fighting the aging process with injectable treatments like Botox. Injectables have become the preferred method for addressing signs of aging – specifically fine lines and wrinkles. Instead of invasive surgeries like face lifts and eye lifts, patients can improve the appearance of their faces temporarily and without the need for scalpels and sutures. Botox is an FDA-approved treatment for improving the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. Our oral surgeon is qualified and experienced to administer Botox.

How can Botox improve the signs of aging?

Botox is an injectable fluid that causes temporary paralysis of facial muscles. By causing temporary paralysis, patients can enjoy a face with diminished fine lines and wrinkles. For instance, Botox injections can smooth out winkles between the eyes, around the mouth, and the forehead. Many people choose Botox to reduce the appearance of crow’s feet and forehead furrows. Botox only works for a few months before it wears off. This is a great way for people to try out this treatment option without having to commit to long term results. Those who enjoy the results Botox gives can continue to receive injections on a routine basis to maintain their results.

Since an oral and maxillofacial surgeon (OMS) performs treatments like reconstructive facial surgeries, Botox might be recommended to increase a symmetrical and harmonious appearance. This treatment might beneficial to those who have been disfigured by facial trauma or congenital abnormalities.

Why choose an OMS?

An OMS is a specialist who has extensive training and education to perform focused treatments on the face and inside the mouth. Because of their training and experience, an OMS is incredibly familiar with the intricate anatomy of delicate facial structure. If you are curious about Botox, we recommend speaking to our surgeon to learn if this treatment option meets your needs.
