Find out how your Paducah dentist can give you a more youthful appearance.

Dentists performing Botox? It might sound shocking, but your Paducah dentist is pleased to offer this aesthetic procedure the next Botoxtime you step into our office. With Botox one of the most popular cosmetic treatments in the world, find out how your next trip to the dentist could also boost your appearance.

What is Botox?

Botox is an injectable treatment that uses a form of Botulinum toxin to block the nerve signals to the muscles to stop them from contracting. This in turn relaxes the wrinkles and fine lines in the face.

What does Botox treat?

Botox is most often used to treat crow’s feet, lines around the mouth and forehead wrinkles. It can also be used on to treat wrinkles on the chin and around the lips. Keep in mind though that Botox will not improve the appearance of wrinkles and lines that are caused by sun damage.

What are the benefits of Botox?

When you opt for Botox in Paducah you can expect these wonderful treatments advantages:

  • Botox only takes a couple of minutes to administer
  • Botox results can last up to six months
  • Botox injections don’t require anesthesia and the discomfort is minimal
  • Botox can also prevent new wrinkles from forming by slowing muscle contractions in the face
  • You can continue to get subsequent Botox treatments in order to maintain your younger appearance

Why should I see my Paducah dentist for Botox?

While Botox and other dermal filler procedures are typically left to dermatologists, and aesthetic treatments might seem out of the realm of dentistry, it’s less surprising when you remember that your Paducah dentist has had extensive training in the oral and maxillofacial regions. Often, we receive more training in these areas than other doctors who perform Botox. We know how to properly deliver your Botox treatments to achieve the results you crave.
