See how Botox Treatment in Fort Lee can Completely Transform Your Smile
Most people consider how their dentist can give them a winning smile. Patients of Anderson Dental get that and so much more. Our patients can maximize their visits and obtain cutting edge treatments that extend beyond their teeth to refresh the appearance of their entire face. Here, we will talk about Botox treatment and how it is benefiting patients from Fort Lee and surrounding areas.
Why We Wrinkle
Aging is more than the passage of time. As we gain more candles on our birthday cake, and more wisdom from life experience, we also undergo certain biological changes. These show up on the skin, often before they show up anywhere else. In addition to a sharp decline in collagen production, wrinkles also develop from dehydration, pollution, smoking, and even stress.
Every time we frown, smile, laugh, and squint, we are also working the muscles on the face. In turn, they tone, just like your abdomen tones if you perform crunches every day. What happens on the face, though, is that ongoing muscle contractions change the shape of the skin, ultimately leading to concerns like frown lines and crow's feet.
How Botox Helps
Patients appreciate the non-surgical, minimally-invasive nature of injectables like Botox. This particular product is what started the new trend in facial rejuvenation. It continues to impress, and gain followers. Botox is used specifically for the purpose of relaxing muscles. In fact, it got its start in the clinical treatment of muscular disorders, not cosmetics! Injecting a minute dosage of the botulinum toxin into a contracted muscle brings it to a state of relaxation. The wonderful side effect of this is that the skin over that muscle becomes smoother and younger-looking.
Why Your dentist is a Great Botox Provider
Initially, Botox and other facial rejuvenation treatments were conducted in dermatology offices and medical spas. Recently, more dentists have obtained the necessary skills-training to perform injections for their patients. Choosing to have your dentist treat facial wrinkles makes sense, because there is an in-depth familiarity with the muscles, vessels, and other structures of the face. Your dentist understands where to inject and in what manner to get the results you expect.
