Do you walk by the mirror and notice facial wrinkles that seem to have appeared overnight? Would you like to restore a more youthful look? Dr. Sumeet Bagai, cosmetic dentist for Wheaton residents, may recommend BOTOX®. 

This treatment blocks the signals from your nerves to your muscles, stopping them from contracting. As a result, the wrinkles in your face relax and soften. Our dentist at DuPage Dental Smiles may use BOTOX® to treat frown, forehead, chin, or lip lines as well as crow’s feet.

What is BOTOX® Cosmetic?

Botox® (onabotulinumtoxinA), approved by the FDA, is used to temporarily lessen the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. It contains small amounts of highly purified Clostridium botulinum toxin proteins and is both safe and effective.

Am I a Good Candidate for BOTOX® Treatment?

Anyone who has concerns about signs of premature aging, including wrinkles and deeper fine lines, may be a good candidate for BOTOX® treatment. Dr. Bagai customizes each treatment to the individual patient’s needs and rejuvenation goals. His extensive experience allows him to safely help you achieve a more youthful appearance with the use of BOTOX®.

How Does Botox® Cosmetic Work and What are the Benefits?

Dr. Bagai will inject specific muscles with BOTOX®, using a fine needle, which will temporarily reduce muscle activity in certain areas. This targets one of the primary causes of facial lines and wrinkles, which is the repetitious muscle contractions that occur as we repeatedly squint and frown throughout the day. You will notice your fine lines and wrinkles becoming noticeably smoother within 24 to 48 hours, and full results should be visible between 1 to 2 weeks post-treatment.

How Often Do I Need to Repeat BOTOX® Treatment?

The results of BOTOX® will last from 4 and 6 months. Around this time, you will notice fine lines and wrinkles begin to reappear as the muscle action returns. At this point, you may want to schedule another treatment. With each successive treatment, the wrinkles and lines should appear less severe.

What About Downtime?

The treatment is quick, easy, and you will experience only minor discomfort. There is no downtime after the procedure is completed. It only takes a few minutes and anesthesia will not be needed. You should not use aspirin, alcohol, or Vitamin E for at least one week prior to treatment, as this will help to minimize the chance of bruising. Nevertheless, some patients may experience a bit of bruising or some slight redness around the injection site.

You should not receive BOTOX® if you are allergic to eggs or botulinum toxin, or if you have swelling, an infection, or muscle weakness in the area where the injection is planned. Make sure to tell your provider if you have ever had a reaction to any injectable in the past.
