BotoxBotox is a popular esthetic procedure used to reduce the appearance of aging that’s now available by local dentists, like Piney Point Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery. Over the last 20 years, the injections have risen in popularity due to the effectiveness of easing the appearance of facial fine lines and wrinkles. Using botulinum toxin, a purified protein, which is injected into facial muscles and attaching to nerve endings, the contracting of muscles is decreased to promote a younger-looking appearance. The safe and effective treatment produces results in as little as three days for a youthful look. However, the injections can also be used to treat certain oral conditions.

BOTOXIf you’re unhappy with the appearance of wrinkles on your forehead, you may have considered BOTOX treatments. You may not have realized that your dentist or oral surgeon can be trained in performing these injections. Patients in Houston, Bellaire, Briargrove, Bunker Hill Village, Galleria, Hunters Creek Village, Katy, Lamar Terrace, Meyerland, and Stafford have a wide variety of options when it comes to this popular cosmetic treatment.

BOTOX is a purified protein from the bacterium Clostridium Botulinum that can be used to help reduce the appearance of wrinkles on your forehead. Once injected, BOTOX helps to stop muscle contractions in your forehead, which reduces the appearance of wrinkles. It is important to pick a skilled practitioner because if not administered skillfully the injection can sometimes result in a forehead that appears to be frozen and will not move at all.
