How Botox Cosmetic and Dysport Treatments Work and Their Benefits
The use of Botox Cosmetic and Dysport to smooth wrinkles and otherwise enhance aesthetic appeal is on the rise, with the number of treatments administered in North America last year reaching over six million. Its popularity has climbed 700% since it first became regulated for cosmetic use at the beginning of the new millennium. And why not? It’s an affordable, age defying enhancement that gives recipients a more relaxed, youthful appearance. Panatella Dental is pleased to be able to offer you Botox treatments at your next dentist visit at our clinic in Calgary NW. Please ask to book a consult.
The effects of Botox / Dysport Treatment
Botox is a naturally occurring purified protein (botulinum toxin) that can be used to resolve a number of medical issues, in addition to its famed ability to soften the appearance of lines around the brow, mouth and eyes. When administered by injection, the compounds in Botox Cosmetic and Dysport temporarily relax the underlying muscles, which results in a lessening of facial wrinkles. The effects can last up to four months with Botox Cosmetics and up to 5 months with Dysport.
The time required for a Botox Cosmetic treatment is about 10 to 15 minutes after a full photographic series. There’s little pain involved and recipients at our NW Calgary clinic commonly describe the sensation as that of a mild pinch. The compound is injected sub-epithelially, and effects are usually observable within 7 to 10 days. It’s uncommon for minor bruising to occur at the injection site. Should this occur, it will fade within a few days.
Your NW Calgary Dentist and Botox Cosmetic treatment
A NW Calgary dentist may not be the first person you think of to administer a Botox treatment. However, in Alberta, dentists were given the green light to offer patients cosmetic treatments in 2014. It was a good fit, to help complement smile design as well as therapeutic remedies for bruxism, TMD and headaches. Please consult our office to see is Botox or Dysport treatments are right for you.
