NW Calgary BOTOX®
Our dentist is licensed to provide her patients with BOTOX® services right here in our NW Calgary dental clinic.
What is it and how does it work?
BOTOX® is a purified protein with cosmetic and therapeutic benefits. Simply put, it works by targeting the muscles under the skin of the face and relaxing them.
When these muscles repeatedly contract over the years, they form wrinkles on the surface of the skin, making you look older. Our dentist in NW Calgary injects BOTOX® into the facial muscles to temporarily relax them so they no longer tug the skin into the wrinkled position. As a result, you experience a skin-smoothing effect, giving you a more youthful appearance.
While BOTOX® is commonly used to reduce, eliminate, or prevent wrinkles or fine lines, we also use it to manage TMJ symptoms and migraine headaches. Our NW Calgary dentist is a licensed BOTOX® provider, and we invite you to visit 16th Avenue Dental to learn more.
Why Choose BOTOX®?
You can feel and look refreshed with this cosmetic treatment.
BOTOX® injections are an easy way to enhance your appearance and reduce signs of aging or help treat headaches.
While you may associate the beauty treatment with plastic surgeons or dermatologists, a dentist has the experience of working with the face every day.
So next time you’re at the dentist, ask about BOTOX®.
Are you looking to reduce signs of aging like frown lines, forehead lines, and crow’s feet? Cosmetic BOTOX® provides a powerful anti-aging effect to make you look and feel younger. The injections target select areas and help temporarily stop overactive muscle movement that causes facial wrinkles, in turn, creating a more youthful appearance.
If you’re suffering from jaw pain, TMJ pain, or teeth grinding, then we may have a non-surgical alternative to treating your bruxism. Before popularizing BOTOX® for cosmetic procedures, it was developed and used to relieve spastic or clenched muscles in the face. Therapeutic BOTOX® is a proven way to relax facial muscles and relieve the pain and discomfort of TMD/TMJ bruxism (teeth grinding).
Why choose a dentist for BOTOX® treatment?
- Why choose a dentist for BOTOX® treatment?
Dentists have experience and training working with the delicate features of the face every day. They understand the intricate relationships between the bone structure, facial muscles, nerves, tissues, and skin. So trained dentists are ideal for administering facial injections.
Our clinic, 16th Avenue Dental, offers therapeutic and cosmetic BOTOX® injections. It’s just another way for us to help you look and feel your best!
We provide a wide range of cosmetic and restorative treatments under one roof to help you achieve a healthy and beautiful smile you love.
- How long does it take to see results? While some people notice some results within the first few days, it’s important to note that full results are not immediate. BOTOX® needs time to set into the muscle to stop it from contracting.
Most people typically see the maximum results within about 10 to 14 days after their treatment, which can last up to about three to four months. Patients who schedule periodic retreatments can easily maintain their youthful-looking results.
- Do BOTOX® injections hurt? We administer BOTOX® with a very tiny needle, and some patients report a pinching sensation with the injections. The procedure itself usually takes only about 10 minutes, and we help ensure a comfortable process.
If you’re feeling nervous about any potential discomfort, our dentist can apply topical numbing cream before the injection to put you at ease. There is typically no downtime, and you can return to your normal daily activities immediately after treatment.
- How many BOTOX® injections will I need?
The number of BOTOX® injections you need depends on several factors and is different for each person. Please contact our general dentist who provides BOTOX® in NW Calgary to find the best amount for your needs.
