Enhance your appearance beyond the smile with cosmetic injectable services at Boutique Smiles of Manhattan
- Posted on: May 15 2019
Patients often think of visiting their cosmetic dentist when they have imperfections of the smile that are bothersome to them. This may include broken, crooked, or stained teeth. However, did you know that you can also visit your dentist for cosmetic injectables for the face? Injections such as Botox are now available with Dr. Angela Abernathy at Boutique Smiles of Manhattan for addressing wrinkles and folds that may contribute to an aging appearance.
How does Botox work?
Botox is a special medication that has been used for decades, and is more recently known as an anti-aging injectable. Botox is a neuromodulator made from botulinum toxin type A, which is completely safe and effective for wrinkles and folds on the facial area. When injected into the muscles of the face, it can help in reducing contractions that are responsible for the formation of forehead folds, crow’s feet, and glabellar lines—the lines between the eyebrows that show during furrowing. The skin becomes smoother and patients will feel years younger with just one treatment.
How long does it last?
Botox will last approximately anywhere from six to nine months following the initial injection. In order to maintain the results, patients may require further treatments.
Can I use with other injectables such as dermal fillers?
Dermal fillers are also available in our pracitce and can be used in conjunction with Botox for optimum results. We do encourage patients to book a consultation appointment and initial evaluation to determine if they are appropriate candidates prior to moving forward with separate cosmetic injectables.
Is Botox safe?
Absolutely! Botox has been approved by the FDA for the use of not only anti-aging benefits but for patients with temporomandibular joint disorder, chronic headaches and migraines, hyperhidrosis, and even overactive bladder.
