At Don Harvey Dental we believe that a youthful look begins with a healthy smile, however, we know that it doesn’t end there. That is why we are pleased to offer BOTOX® to compliment your great smile. We can use BOTOX to smooth out forehead wrinkles, frown lines, and crow’s feet. When used correctly, BOTOX can give you that youthful glow without the appearance that you had anything done.
BOTOX is a safe, effective, proven method of smoothing out wrinkles in the forehead and around the eyes and mouth. It is injected into muscles that, over time, cause skin to wrinkle. Once this muscle activity is reduced, skin overlying the muscles is allowed to regain a smoother, more youthful look. There are many misconceptions about BOTOX. First of all, BOTOX is not a poison, but a protein created by bacteria. There are no live bacteria in BOTOX. BOTOX works by reducing muscle activity. Secondly, this action is not permanent, but typically lasts three to four months, at which time the patient may elect to retreat with BOTOX.
Dr. Harvey has completed training from the DentaSpa Aesthetics in esthetic improvements and is pleased to offer BOTOX as an additional service to our patients. This provides the convenience of getting regular BOTOX treatment during your routine dental hygiene visit, and is great for those who are curious but can’t get themselves to a cosmetic surgeon’s office. In as little as one visit, our dentists can erase lines and wrinkles from around the mouth, ease pesky crow’s feet, and minimize stress lines on your forehead.
Don Harvey Dental will use BOTOX in Alpharetta, Georgia, to inhibit jaw clenching and pain associated with TMJ (temporomandibular joint) disorders and relief from migraines and various other dentally related headaches. The injections relax certain facial muscles which stop teeth clenching and associated pain.
