What are Cosmetic Injectables?
Botulinum toxin (BoNT-A), often known by prescription brands such as Botox® or Dysport®, is a naturally purified protein that can temporarily help you improve the look of moderate to severe frown lines between the eyebrows (glabellar lines). When your facial muscles contract, your skin moves along with them, forming creases until the muscles return to the resting position. These are called “dynamic” wrinkles or lines because they happen as a result of the way a person’s face moves. Over time, and after many repeated movements, those creases can deepen significantly. Combine that with the natural decrease of collagen as you age, and you have the perfect recipe for severe lines and wrinkles. is widely used to help reduce the appearance of aging by softening facial lines and wrinkles. Offered by your certified dentist, it is highly effective for the treatment of expression lines such as “crow’s feet” near the eyes and forehead furrows or frown lines.
These lines are caused when overactive muscles reduce the collagen in the skin, which contributes to the skin’s wrinkled appearance. When injected into the facial muscles in minute quantities, botulinum toxin relaxes the muscles, preventing and improving the appearance of wrinkles and smoothing lines. Completed by certified dentists like Drs. Jan and Warren Roberts, the procedure is painless and takes about 10 minutes. The injections need to be repeated every few months as the material is gradually broken down in the body.
