Dentistry & Botox

Dr. Hemali Ajmera of Ajmera Dentistry in Woodside, NY administers Botox to clients concerned about fine lines and wrinkles. Come see your dentist if you're looking to achieve a more youthful appearance.

Botox has become more readily available, and that includes from your dentist. Dentists are experts in the maxillofacial area and are uniquely qualified to administer Botox. Botox can soften wrinkles and help you achieve a younger appearance. Your dentist in Woodside, NY provides Botox to help with the following issues:

  • Wrinkles around the mouth
  • Forehead lines
  • Crow's feet

All these wrinkles form where you frequently contract your facial muscles. Dentists have a deep understanding of these muscles and experience with various surgeries around the mouth. With this experience, they can precisely target the muscles that cause fine lines and wrinkles.

Botox is made from the bacteria Clostridium botulinum in a refined, safe form. Botox injections stop the contractions in your muscles and force them to relax. With relaxed muscles, the skin over them appears smoother. Botox injections are a way to achieve a softer appearance without plastic surgery.

The procedure for a Botox injection is relatively painless. The needle used is very small and you will feel a small pinch or prick with the injection. The liquid is injected into your muscles and begins to work, though it may be up to a week before you see the complete effects of the injection.

There are more severe tiers of plastic surgery that are meant to drastically change your appearance. Botox injections gently soften wrinkles and fine lines to achieve a younger look that's still you. There is maintenance recommended with Botox injections, that you continue to schedule injections every three to six months.
