How Can BOTOX® Injections Enhance My Smile?

Featured Image

BOTOX injections are known for reducing the appearance of wrinkles and are normally used on the upper part of the face, but they can also be used to help enhance your smile. These injections stop contractions in the muscles, giving them time to relax. Dr. Ryan Martz and his team service the Las Vegas, Henderson, Boulder City, and Paradise, NV areas. Schedule a consultation with Gardens Cosmetic and Family Dentistry in Las Vegas, NV to learn how BOTOX can help you today.

What is BOTOX, and how does it work?

BOTOX injections are made from botulinum toxin type A. The injection sends a chemical message to your nerves that prevents your muscles from contracting. This allows your muscles to relax, which reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. As the muscles in your face repeatedly contract, they cause impressions to appear in the skin. BOTOX injections cause little discomfort compared to more invasive treatment options.

What parts of my smile can BOTOX fix?

Many people are not completely satisfied with their smile and want to fix one or more issues. If you are dissatisfied with your smile and would like to improve its appearance, BOTOX may be right for you. With BOTOX, you can improve many of your unwanted problems, including:

  • Fine lines and wrinkles around your mouth

  • A gummy smile (a smile that shows more of your gumline than you prefer)

  • Upper and lower lip lines

  • A down-turned smile caused by a facial muscle

The injections can help to fix these concerns and enhance your smile for the better. If you think you could benefit from BOTOX, contact Dr. Martz and his team at Gardens Cosmetic and Family Dentistry in Las Vegas, NV to learn how we can help you today.

What should I do before my BOTOX injections?

Always be completely honest with Dr. Martz and his team to ensure a safe and healthy procedure. You should inform him if you have had any BOTOX injections within the past six months. You should also inform the office if you take muscle relaxants, allergy medications, or sleeping aids. If you are taking blood thinners, you should stop them multiple hours before your treatment to reduce the risk of severe bleeding and bruising.

What should I expect after my BOTOX injections?

After your procedure, there may be some bruising or swelling at the site of your injections. You should also avoid touching your face as you could spread the BOTOX to other areas. You can return to your normal daily activities directly after your procedure. Your results may begin to start working after one day, but they could take up to three days after your treatment to fully perform. Your results may last up to 3 – 4 months.
