Botox Near You
As we age, skin loses elasticity. Years of smiling, laughing, frowning, and concentrating can result in lines and grooves that persist on our faces even when relaxed. Botox/Dysport/Xeomin use naturally occurring compounds to temporarily relax the muscles that create these lines. This results in a refreshed youthful look. The results can last 3-6 months depending on the patient. The most common areas treated for aesthetics are the crow’s feet (around the eyes), between the eyebrows and the forehead. Therapeutic uses for Botox include treatment of migraines and TMJ pain resulting in dramatic relief for affected patients.

How Long Does It Take to Administer Botox?
Before your dentist administers Botox near you, a consultation is scheduled to first discuss the procedure with your dentist and address any questions you may have. Typically, a Botox treatment session will take under 10 minutes. This time can vary depending on the severity of your condition, the number of injections required, and your overall diagnosis. You can expect to notice results within two days, however, this will depend on your genetics and the type of issue you are addressing—whether it is cosmetic or therapeutic. On average, results will last three to six months.
Dermal fillers (such as Juvederm and Restylane) are used to restore, enhance, and shape the features of the face. This treatment will typically last 9-18 months and involves injected hyaluronic acid (a natural component of skin) into areas such as lips, folds around the mouth, chin, and jaws. Fillers can be used to increase the volume of these areas that have been lost through the ageing process or to elevate areas that may have always been deficient (such as thin lips).
