Botox

Dental Blu is now offering BOTOX® Cosmetic!  The only approved treatment to temporarily improve the appearance of both moderate to severe frown lines.  Over the years the same muscles you use to smile, frown and squint with can cause these lines.  We are now able to inject these muscles with BOTOX® Cosmetic to temporarily reduce muscle activity. 

BOTOX® Cosmetic is a prescription medicine that is injected into muscles and used to temporarily improve the look of both moderate to severe crow’s feet lines and frown lines between the eyebrows in adults.  BOTOX® Cosmetic is one of the most extensively studied medical aesthetic treatments and is approved for cosmetic use in 78 countries. * BOTOX® Cosmetic has a record of experience that aesthetic specialists know and trust. And, the safety and efficacy of BOTOX® Cosmetic have been evaluated in both Allergan sponsored clinical trials as well as in 417 peer-reviewed articles in scientific and medical journals.

Wrinkles result from a combination of many factors. It’s not just about cellular changes that can occur over time, reduction of collagen, or damage caused by free radicals in the sun and the environment. When you frown or concentrate, the muscles between your brows contract, causing your skin to furrow and fold. And when you squint, the muscles around your eyes contract and cause crow’s feet.

BOTOX® Cosmetic works beneath the skin’s surface and targets the underlying muscle activity that causes frown lines and crow’s feet.

For the crow’s feet area, your specialist will inject 3 areas of the orbicularis oculi, the muscle that frames the side of the eye. This will be repeated on the orbicularis oculi muscle on the other eye.

Injecting BOTOX® Cosmetic into the muscles that cause crow’s feet lines temporarily reduces the activity of those muscles. The result is a reduction in the appearance of those lines.

 

 

For the frown lines area, your specialist will administer 5 injections into muscles in your forehead—1 in the procerus muscle and 4 in the corrugator muscles.

Injecting BOTOX® Cosmetic into the muscles that cause frown lines temporarily reduces the activity of those muscles. The result is a reduction in the appearance of those lines.

 

We may use ice to numb the treatment area. If you are concerned about discomfort, your specialist may apply a topical numbing cream before administering your treatment.  You may begin to notice results within 24 to 48 hours for moderate to severe frown lines, with results lasting up to 4 months.

We will discuss your treatment goals and perform a facial analysis to determine the appropriate treatment areas for you.  BOTOX® Cosmetic is a technique-sensitive treatment. You should not lose the ability to show expression when you are treated by someone who is licensed, trained, and a medical expert in facial anatomy.  Treatment requires minimal downtime or recovery; it’s often called a lunchtime procedure. You’ll be able to go about your normal routine immediately after you leave our office. 

When it comes to the cost not only does it include the price of the product, but more importantly, the skill and expertise of the specialist or healthcare professional who is administering your treatment.  BOTOX® Cosmetic is a technique-sensitive treatment—Dr. Depp is a licensed and trained professional and has experience treating patients with BOTOX® Cosmetic.

It is more important to find an experienced specialist who will take the time to understand your treatment goals and develop a treatment plan that is right for you.

We are excited to offer this treatment option to our new and current patients.  Please give us a call so we can set up your appointment today!
