BOTOX IN MOUNT PLEASANT, SC
We are Now Offering Botox in our Mount Pleasant Office.
What is Botox?
Botox is a neurotoxin approved by the FDA that works by relaxing the muscles of the face that lead to wrinkles and headaches. It does so by blocking the nerve impulses that cause your facial muscles to contract. Although Botox is commonly associated with an aesthetic solution to facial wrinkles, it can also help to alleviate stress headaches. The dentists of Solomon Family Dentistry have obtained the proper training and continuing education to offer Botox treatment at our Mount Pleasant office.
Although many people do not experience adverse side effects to Botox treatment, it is essential that you choose a provider that has extensive knowledge about the process. Injections must be strategically placed dependent on your facial anatomy, which only a professional who is highly trained can access. If it is administered incorrectly, you will not get the results you desire, and it can be dangerous.
A dental education includes understanding and extensively studying facial nerves and muscles, and the anatomy of them. So, who better to pinpoint exactly how to treat patients according to their specific needs than a dentist. Since each face is different, and everyone’s oral and facial anatomy is too, a dentist is the best choice to decipher how to best target muscle contractions that lead to wrinkles.
The amount of time in between Botox injections is dependent on the strength of the muscles that it targets and the dosage administered. For most, Botox can last from three to six months in between treatments, which makes it a perfect thing to align with your dental health cleanings. Why make two appointments and to go to two separate offices. Our service provides both in one sitting, which is much more convenient to fit into your already busy schedule.
Although everyone reacts differently from Botox treatment, there are some commonalities that people experience. The full effects of Botox may take up to two weeks. You might also experience slight bruising around the injection site. To minimize injection site irritation, do not massage or rub the site for 24 hours. But the good news is you can safely return to your normal activities immediately following the procedure.
