BOTOX® is a purified protein derived from botulinum toxin that blocks transmitters between the motor nerves innervating various muscles. Because BOTOX injections cause muscles to relax, this treatment works well for tense facial and jaw muscles or undesirable facial lines. The dental industry has increasingly relied on BOTOX for a variety of cosmetic and functional uses. Dentists are skilled at assessing the balance and overall esthetics of the face, and have extensive training in the anatomy of the head and neck. From painful temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorder and poorly fitting dentures to facial lines, BOTOX in Macon, GA has helped our patients achieve desired results. BOTOX is an FDA-approved application for a variety of cosmetic procedures, which means it has been thoroughly tested and deemed safe and non-toxic when properly administered by trained professionals.
Repeated muscle contractions from frowning, squinting or raising your eyebrows eventually cause pronounced lines around your mouth, eyes and forehead. In April 2002, the FDA approved BOTOX® as a temporary esthetic treatment for moderate to severe frown lines in adults, and the parent company Allergan branded it BOTOX® Cosmetic to distinguish it from therapeutic applications. BOTOX® Cosmetic is the first and only treatment FDA-approved to temporarily reduce the appearance of moderate to severe frown lines, crow’s feet and forehead lines in adults. Treatment requires minimal downtime, so you can return to your daily routine immediately after you leave our office. Although you may notice subtle changes in moderate to severe frown lines within 24 to 48 hours, it takes about one month to experience full results.
Of course, the effectiveness of cosmetic and therapeutic BOTOX applications depends on the experience of the dental professionals applying these treatments. When administered by a skilled dentist like Dr. John Kuo, who has advanced knowledge of the oral and maxillofacial areas, BOTOX injections are safe and effective. Dr. Kuo has training in oral surgery, is a member of the American Academy of Facial Esthetics, and has a successful track record administering BOTOX to patients for both functional and esthetic purposes. Many patients seeking cosmetic dentistry in Macon, GA ask for BOTOX to complement other esthetic procedures, such as teeth whitening and smile makeovers.
