Oral surgeons are concerned with the harmony and balance of the facial structures, and Botox can help patients achieve this goal. Also, with their extensive training in surgical techniques, oral surgeons are well-suited to deliver this treatment.
Botox eliminates dynamic wrinkle lines, like crows feet and worry lines, which develop as a result of repeated contractions of the facial muscles. Botox cannot correct all of the effects that aging has on the skin, so the oral surgeon will thoroughly evaluate your case before moving forward with the treatment to be sure that it is appropriate for your needs.
Patients come to our office to get the Botox injections, and the whole process is completed in just a matter of minutes. The procedure is non-invasive, so no anesthetic is needed.
The results are fast, you’ll be able to see a noticeable change in a matter of just a few days.
Botox treatments are not permanent, and patients who want to maintain its effects for a long period of time will need to return to the office periodically for follow-up treatments. However, some evidence suggests that the longer a patient uses Botox, the longer its effects endure. Side effects with Botox are uncommon, but they do occur from time to time, so be sure to discuss this aspect of treatment with your oral surgeon.
Botox injections are a safe and efficient tool to erase the years from your facial structures, and Botox can enhance the effects of an oral surgery that also improves the facial appearance.
