This may sound like the stuff of science fiction, but Exceptional Dentistry now offers Botox treatments to patients just like you in the areas of Jeffersonville, Indiana, and Shepherdsville and Louisville, Kentucky.
What is Botox Botox and how does it work?
Botox is a highly purified version of botulinum toxin A that has been approved by the Food and Drug Administration. Your medical professional administers Botox by injection into a muscle. This contracts the muscle, softening the appearance of wrinkles and other fine lines.
This procedure is convenient; it takes just a few minutes, and the injections can be delivered without an anesthetic. You will see the full results of a Botox treatment seven to 14 days after the procedure, and results can last anywhere from three to six months.
Your appearance is going to change as you get older. The skin around your mouth and eyes becomes wrinkled from the regular motions of eating, smiling, speaking, and sun exposure. All of this is an inevitable part of the aging process.
Botox can reduce these signs of aging. It relaxes those facial muscles, smoothing areas where there are wrinkles.
Usually, you would think a Botox treatment means going to see a plastic surgeon. However, dentists are well versed and knowledgeable in the muscles of the face.
The dentists at Exceptional Dentistry have the training and experience you want for any procedure, including cosmetic ones involving Botox. Dr. Deborah Shoemaker maintains professional membership in seven different professional organizations and associations. Meanwhile, Dr. Patrick Carroll is the only graduate of the Las Vegas Institute for Advanced Dental Studies in Kentucky.
When administered by a medical professional, Botox is safe and effective. You run a higher risk of complications if you receive Botox from an unregulated provider. Dentists, on the other hand, have the experience and training to monitor the medical and aesthetic elements of the procedure, which gives clients more assurance that they are being treated by a competent and qualified professional. You also know you will be receiving your Botox injections in a sterile, clinical setting.
