Do you have facial wrinkles? Do you wish to restore the youthful look to your face? Dr. Sumeet Bagai may recommend BOTOX® in Warrenville, Illinois. BOTOX is a toxin that blocks the signals from your nerves to your muscles. When our dentist injects BOTOX into your facial muscles, they cannot contract. As a result, the wrinkles in your face relax and soften. Our dentist at Dupage Dental Smiles may use BOTOX to treat:
- Forehead lines
- Crow’s feet
- Frown lines
- Lip lines
- Chin lines
The BOTOX procedure only takes a few minutes and anesthesia will not be needed. The toxin is injected into certain muscles with a fine needle that produces only minor discomfort. Usually, BOTOX takes three to seven days to reach its full effects. We recommend that you avoid alcohol for at least one week prior to the procedure. Also, do not take aspirin and other anti-inflammatory medicines for at least two weeks. This can reduce bruising. The results of BOTOX can last from four to six months. The lines and wrinkles will begin to reappear as the muscle action returns. At this point, you may want another treatment. With every treatment, the wrinkles and lines should appear less severe.
