Why You Should See an Oral Surgeon for Botox
Botox is an FDA-approved injectable treatment that is commonly used to improve facial aesthetics, leaving you with smoother, more youthful looking skin. This purified protein is a form of botulinum toxin A. You most likely hear about having Botox injections done at a medical spa. While you can go to a medspa for Botox injections, it is much better to have these types of injections done by an oral surgeon. DFW Oral Surgeons can help.
What Can Botox Treat?
Botox can be used to treat a variety of different cosmetic issues. It can also be used to treat certain medical issues as well. Common uses for Botox include
How Does Botox Work?
Botox is an injectable treatment. It is injected directly into your skin. The needle is injected to target specific areas of the face or body. Once in the skin, the Botox liquid works to block the nerves that cause specific muscles to contract. Because of this, the muscles that form lines and wrinkles, or the muscles that tense to cause you to grind and clench, are prevented from contracting. When it comes to treating cosmetic issues, lines and wrinkles can smooth out, their appearance reduced or eliminated. When Botox is used to treat bruxism and TMJ disorder, the inability of the muscles to contract helps to alleviate the symptoms of these issues, improving your quality of life.
Benefits of Going to an Oral Surgeon for Botox
