Find out why you may want to turn to your dentist if you are interested in this simple cosmetic treatment.botox

Even though some people wear their laugh lines like a badge of honor, not everyone feels as great about these wrinkles. If you have crow’s feet, forehead lines or wrinkles around the nose and mouth that bother you, our Washington, DC cosmetic dentist, Dr. Leslie Bonner, could help smooth out these facial lines and help you get a more youthful appearance.

My Dentist Offers Botox?

When people think about Botox they often assume they have to go to a dermatologist or even cosmetic surgeon to get this treatment, but our Washington, DC dentist makes it easier to get that youthful look just by coming into our dental office.

Why should you choose a dentist to perform this simple cosmetic procedure? One thing is certain: dentists receive a lot of advanced training with regards to the maxillofacial region, which means that if any doctor should be allowed to provide Botox it should be a dentist. After all, dentists have to perform some rather invasive maxillofacial procedures regularly.

If you are looking to smooth away dynamic wrinkles around the eyes, forehead, mouth and nose then Botox injections may be all that you need to take years off your skin. These thin needles are so small that most patients don’t feel anything more than a slight pinch. In a matter of minutes, the treatment is over. Over the course of three to four days, you will start to see some of those lines and wrinkles disappear (it can take up to one week to see the full results). While Botox results are temporary, if you want to maintain your results for longer you can always come back in every few months for a refresher treatment.

If you are interested in taking years off your skin then it’s time to call The Bonner Dental Network in Washington, DC to schedule your consultation. Let’s find out if Botox is right for you.
