THE TRUTH ABOUT BOTOX
Want a youthful look?
Facial enhancements can complement your dental treatments to achieve a complete aesthetic facial result.
Wrinkles are like the hiccups - annoying and perhaps inevitable. But there is a solution for you that is safe, painless and effective. Botox is best known for removing frown lines, forehead creases, droopy eyebrows, crow’s feet, bunny lines, lip lines, jowls, undefined jawline, and facial wrinkles. The simple injections relax facial muscles that underlie and cause wrinkles.
It’s not just about wrinkles and frown lines. Botox is used to treat a variety of conditions. For example, the treatment is used for migraines, muscular disorders (stiffness, spasms), bowel disorders (overactive bladder or loss of bladder control), even stop excessive sweating. For best results, we recommend the procedure be administered by a licensed medical professional such as Dr. Jennifer McConathy.
