The team at Lifepath Dental & Wellness, consisting of Chestermere dentists, is pleased to announce we now offer Botox® Cosmetic treatments. Our qualified dentists use Botox® Cosmetic (which is a naturally purified protein) to relax muscles and decrease pain. Botox® Cosmetic is a quick and relatively painless non-invasive treatment that has numerous therapeutic and cosmetic uses in dentistry.
Botox® Cosmetic is a highly effective treatment for reducing the appearance of aging by softening facial lines and wrinkles, including frown lines in between the eyes, forehead lines, and “crow's feet” near the eyes. These lines are caused when overactive muscles reduce the collagen in the skin, which contributes to the skin's wrinkled appearance. When injected into the facial muscles in minute quantities, Botox® Cosmetic relaxes the muscles, preventing and improving the appearance of wrinkles and smoothing lines. The procedure is painless and takes about 10 minutes. Botox® Cosmetic injections need to be repeated every few months as the medication is gradually broken down in the body.
During your consultation, our team will take a series of photographs, which will allow us to develop a customized, comprehensive treatment plan and record improvements over time.
Botox® Cosmetic can be used in conjunction with cosmetic dental treatments to improve the “look” of your smile by improving uneven lips/smile and a “gummy” smile.
