What are injectable aesthetics?
Injectable aesthetics is a category of aesthetic medicine that alters the way you look by injecting medications or volumizing substances into your face. Specifically, aesthetic injectable treatments at All Bright Dental use Botox®.
Botox is an injectable aesthetic drug that encourages your muscles to relax. For about four months after a round of injections, your nerve signals can’t reach the affected muscles to tell them to flex. This is because the main ingredient in Botox, a chemical called botulinum toxin, impedes your nerve signals.
At All Bright Dental, the team carefully places Botox injections around your mouth to give your smile its ideal frame.
They use only small doses and meticulously plan the injections so that they only affect certain muscles while leaving surrounding muscles alone. That way you won’t have trouble making the facial movements that matter.
What can I do with injectable aesthetics?
The results of Botox injections alter the way you look. At All Bright Dental, the team uses Botox for lip augmentation and wrinkle relief around your mouth. You and your dentist can customize your treatment to fit your expectations. With Botox, you can change the way your smile looks by:
- Lifting the corners of your mouth
- Reducing lip wrinkles and creases
- Reducing marionette lines
- Boosting the size of your upper lip
A procedure nicknamed Botox lip flip makes lip augmentation with Botox possible. The injections cause your upper lip to curl upward, making it look bigger or fuller than before.
Does Botox cause side effects?
Injectable aesthetics are an optional treatment and it’s up to you and your dentist to weigh the benefits and drawbacks of using them for treatment.
Botox is one of the most extensively researched drugs around, so there are very few risks associated with the treatment. You might notice a few mild side effects after a round of injections, including:
If you get any of these potential side effects, they only last for a couple of days at most.
Can I get repeated Botox injections to make my results last?
If you’re happy with the way you look after your first injectable aesthetic treatment, your dentist at All Bright Dental can help you make Botox a part of your routine. As the results wear off, simply make an appointment for follow-up injections to keep enjoying your alterations.
