You don’t have to live with the effects that getting older can have on your facial features and skin. Dr. Luth and Dr. Heideman are skilled at the application of Botox to smooth out wrinkles on your face, lift your brow, create chin dimples, or get rid of crow’s feet by your eyes. Botox injections can even be used for pain management in your jaw and teeth.
WHAT IS BOTOX?
Botox is the common name for Botulinum toxin type A, which is a type of chemical commonly used to treat wrinkles by relaxing muscles close to the skin. Botox is injected into the skin by a trained professional like Dr. Luth and Dr. Heideman.
The effects of Botox take only a few days to see results. After the treatment, patients can expect the results that help you regain younger-looking skin to last for several months to a year.
WHAT CAN BOTOX BE USED FOR?
You can get Botox treatments from our skilled and experienced dental professionals here at Luth & Heideman Center for Dental Care for a wide variety of applications to ensure every patient can look and feel their finest.
For patients who are looking for a more youthful smile, Botox may be the answer. With specific injections, facial muscles are gently relaxed, allowing wrinkles to be smoothed away. This provides the appearance of a fuller and younger smile in a single treatment that lasts over five months.
When injected in the lip area, Botox can help minimize creases in the upper and lower lip area, elevate the corners of your mouth, remove lines that run downward from the corners of your mouth, and make your lips appear larger and plumper.
Fix a Gummy Smile
If the gums above your upper teeth show when you smile, it’s considered “gummy.” Some people may also display little or no upper lip when they grin. Botox injections can make your muscles relax, causing your lips to curl slightly and cover your gums and allow more of your lips to show. This effect will also make your lip look bigger.
For older patients or those who have experienced severe damage that requires dentures, Botox can help in the adjustment period.
Should a patient suffer from bruxism (excessive grinding of the teeth), Botox may be recommended to help ease an overworked jaw.
Botox can be used to significantly relieve pain of the TMJ (temporomandibular joint) by relaxing the tension of these muscles, relieving pain in the jaw itself, and increasing mouth movements. These treatments can even reduce related health issues such as migraines.
Whether or not you are looking for a more youthful smile or a remedy for muscle tension in your face or jaw, Luth & Heideman in Las Vegas is here to help! We can provide a consultation to help you learn how Botox treatments may be right for you. Contact our office for more information.
