Many Cabot folks are surprised to learn we can provide both therapeutic and cosmetic Botox from the comfort of your dental home. In fact, a lot of people aren’t aware that Botox can have therapeutic benefits for pain management and treatment of TMJ dysfunction and headaches. When the other options include orthodontics, wearing a nightguard, or resorting to invasive surgery, this comes as quite a relief to many suffering from tension of the jaw, face, head, and neck.
Then there’s the tried and true cosmetic Botox that smooths fine lines and wrinkles, bringing back your healthy, ageless radiance. Many people are hesitant to seek Botox treatment for fear of going to see a facial aesthetics specialist or a plastic surgeon. That’s why we’re happy to provide both cosmetic and therapeutic Botox right here at Patrick Fields, DDS, your one-stop shop for looking and feeling better!
We’re all about aging gracefully here at Patrick Fields, DDS General Dentistry. We trust in the wisdom in our years, but that doesn’t mean we have to settle for the fine lines and wrinkles that come along with it. That’s why we’re happy to provide cosmetic Botox treatment with the privacy of your regular dental office. Whether you have crows feet, frown lines, or forehead wrinkles, we can take years off your appearance in a single visit.
There’s no need to go see a facial aesthetics specialist. Dr. Fields has been trained and certified to provide Botox injections right here in our office. In fact, dentists are one of the most capable professionals to provide Botox injections because we are already well-versed in precision, painless injections in these delicate facial areas. If you’re interested in improving your smile, we would love to add the finishing touches with a little Botox to put an ageless frame around your new center of confidence.
Botox has been used safely and effectively for decades in treating fine lines and wrinkles. But only in recent years have we really begun to see what it can do outside the realm of aesthetics. Botox works by attaching to nerve endings and interrupting transmissions to the motor muscles of the face. Tiny muscle contractions beneath the skin are the main cause of fine lines and wrinkles, but they also contribute to a lot of pain and tension. Blocking these tiny muscle contractions can provide unmatched relief for patients suffering from chronic tension headaches, migraines, bruxism, and TMJ dysfunction.
Still haven’t decided if Botox is right for you? No worries, we understand the hesitation. Many people think Botox is something to be ashamed of, but let us assure you there is no shame in wanting to look and feel your best. Plus, if you’ve read up to this point, you understand the many therapeutic benefits Botox can provide as well.
There are also a lot of misunderstandings about Botox results—that your face will appear stiff and fake and you won’t be able to show emotions. That’s simply not the case. Those results are only achieved by more major cosmetic surgeries. Botox has been used safely and clinically studied for over 20 years in providing relief from fine lines and wrinkles in a way that looks and feels natural.
