Integrate Botox injections into your next dental visit!

Have you noticed the development of lines across the forehead and around the face? Are you tired of looking exhausted or older than you really are? Thanks to continued advances in the cosmetics industry, patients in Glenview, Illinois, have more options than just teeth whitening and porcelain veneers to improve their appearance. Smile Today Dental is pleased to announce the integration of Botox cosmetic injections into our line of services.

What is Botox?

Our team describes Botox as a form of cosmetic injectable that works to reduce the appearance of facial wrinkles and fine lines. Botox is FDA-approved and contains a purified protein known as botulinum toxin type A, derived from natural bacteria. When injected into the face, it relaxes the muscles and prevents them from contracting, reducing movement that causes dynamic wrinkles.

Where can Botox be injected for face wrinkles?

Botox can be used to target crow’s feet around your eyes, frown lines between your eyebrows, and forehead lines and wrinkles. It can also be used to address gummy smiles or lifted corners of the mouth (known as “bunny lines”), often caused by excessive use of certain facial muscles.

What can I expect during a botulinum toxin treatment?

The entire procedure takes around 15 minutes, and the results are visible within three to four days. During the appointment, your dentist will inject small amounts of Botox into strategic areas of your face with an ultra-fine needle. You might experience some discomfort or mild pain, but overall, it is well tolerated by most patients.
