Columbia Gateway Dentistry provides Botox® injections in Columbia, MD to smooth out facial wrinkles in our patients who want younger looking skin. Botox® was designed to treat many of the visual signs of aging by using the Botulinum Toxin to relax facial muscles and reduce the appearance of wrinkles. The procedure is considered safe and effective and poses little risk of complications.
Our Columbia Botox® patients often visit us to address wrinkles in a number of facial areas. Horizontal forehead lines, vertical lines between the eyebrows and "crow's feet" are common reasons to receive treatment with Botox®. This procedure has become a popular non-surgical choice to achieve a younger looking appearance.
Reasons for Considering a Botox Treatment:
- Fine Lines
- Crow’s Feet
- Excessive facial wrinkles
- Large Wrinkles or Furrows
- Laugh Lines and Frown Lines
Receiving Botox at our Columbia Practice
When you visit Columbia Gateway Dentistry in Columbia, MD you will receive the personal attention you deserve. We offer a calm and relaxing environment to provide you with a positive experience throughout your treatment.
An anesthetic cream is placed on your skin prior to administering the Botox® injections. Typically, a small amount (1-2 cc’s) of Botox® is injected into each wrinkle and ice is applied once treatment is complete. Botox® relaxes the facial muscles by blocking the impulses from the nerve. The result is smoother skin that lasts up to six months, after which we invite our patients to return for a maintenance treatment.
Optimizing your Recovery
There is very little downtime after receiving treatment with Botox. Patients usually return to their normal daily activities immediately after the procedure.
You will be instructed not to lay down for a period of time after treatment and given other important information regarding after-care. Following our post-procedure instructions are important to avoid any side-effects.
It is imperative that patients who have undergone Botox treatment should avoid laying down flat, engaging in vigorous physical activities, or applying cosmetics for a minimum of four hours after the injections. Also, avoid rubbing or massaging the injected area for at least 24 hours. Contact us at Columbia Gateway Dentistry to see if Botox is the right solution for you!
