What Is Botox?

Botox is a safe, harmless, and effective method of treating fine lines and wrinkles. It’s derived from the potent botulinum toxin, but is treated and processed to ensure its safety for cosmetic use.

When it’s injected into certain parts of the face, the toxin in Botox paralyzes a lot of tiny facial muscles. This causes them to relax. In turn, this helps smooth out fine lines and wrinkles. This is particularly effective on wrinkles on the forehead (worry lines) and lines near the eyes (crow’s feet).

What Can I Expect?

The Botox Treatment Process

It takes only a few minutes to get Botox at Washington Metro Dental. First, your doctor will sanitize the injection site, then use a topical numbing cream to ensure you feel no discomfort. Then, a very small needle will be used to inject a tiny amount of Botox into each injection site.

The quantity and location of these injection sites will vary depending on the types of fine lines and wrinkles you’re treating. Once your treatment is complete, you’ll be sent home with a few simple recovery instructions to follow. It may take up to 10-14 days to see your maximum results.

How Can Botox Help My Smile?

Botox isn’t just for treating facial wrinkles. It can also be used to address issues with your smile. Botox around your mouth can reduce fine lip lines to help create more full, youthful lips. This is particularly effective when combined with dermal fillers.

Botox can also treat a “gummy smile.” This happens when your upper lip curls excessively when you smile, exposing a lot of your gum tissue. This isn’t harmful at all, but it can make your smile look imbalanced. A Botox injection reduces how much your lip can curl. This helps prevent a gummy smile, and leads to a more balanced appearance.

Maintaining Best Results With Botox

To extend the longevity of your treatment, there are a few steps you can take. First, we recommend doing some facial exercises near the treatment area. This can help distribute the Botox more evenly, prolonging its results.

In addition, you should avoid sun exposure. UVA and UVB rays can damage your skin. While it won’t shorten the lifespan of your Botox treatment, sun exposure is very harmful to the health of your skin, and can lead to further wrinkles and lines. Make sure to use proper sun protection like SPF 50+ sunscreen. 

You also should use hydrating lotion on your face. Keeping your skin moist helps it stay plump, which will boost and prolong the aesthetic effects of Botox. Developing a regular skincare routine is a great way to maintain the best results.
