Botox Q & A

What is Botox?

Commonly used to smooth wrinkles and fine lines around the face, Botox is the first nonsurgical injectable therapy FDA-approved to temporarily reduce the appearance of dynamic wrinkles — any wrinkle formed through muscle movement in the face — such as:

  • Crow’s feet
  • Glabellar lines, or wrinkles between the eyebrows
  • Forehead wrinkles
  • Frown lines
  • Bunny lines around the bridge of the nose
  • Lip wrinkles around the mouth
  • Chin dimples

Not only does Botox improve the appearance of wrinkles, but when used in cosmetic dentistry, it also minimizes gummy smiles, giving patients a better gum-to-teeth ratio.

How does Botox work?

Botox works by blocking nerve impulses to the injection site, essentially freezing muscle movement in that specific area to smooth existing wrinkles. When used regularly and consistently, this revolutionary wrinkle treatment can also prevent future lines from forming, as paralyzing the muscles where your wrinkles take shape stops them from deepening.

Dr. Mandalia can also minimize the appearance of your gummy smile with Botox by reducing how high your upper lip rises when you smile and expose your gums. If you’re struggling with a poor gum-to-teeth ratio, Botox may dramatically improve your smile and boost confidence.

Why should I choose Botox?

If you’re struggling with fine lines, wrinkles, creases, or a gummy smile, Botox is a safe, temporary alternative to more invasive procedures such as a facelift or a gingivectomy — a surgical procedure that removes excess gum tissue to improve a gummy smile.

Botox results are instant and natural-looking, especially compared to invasive cosmetic surgery. Patients hoping to shave a few years off their appearance and turn back the clock can greatly benefit from the subtle, yet powerful results of Botox.

Am I a good candidate for Botox?

Patients with fine lines and wrinkles are typically perfect candidates for Botox, but it’s important to note that the treatment, which lasts up to 6 months, only works well on dynamic wrinkles — those caused by muscle movement.

If you struggle with saggy skin or lost volume in your face, dermal fillers may be a better option for you than Botox.

When considering Botox, consulting a professional cosmetic specialist like Dr. Mandalia can make all the difference. Call Buckhead Dental Care or book an appointment online today to find out if Botox is the right option for you.
