Most people don’t think of their dentists when thinking of their appearance as they grow older. If they do, it is only in regards to the look and feel of their teeth, but your dentist at Smiles by Design can do so much more to combat the effects of ageing on your appearance. Even though we don’t see them as the experts they are, dentists have the specialized training in the muscles, tissues, and bone structure of the face to offer the very best cosmetic options to their patients. If fine lines and wrinkles are bothering you, Smiles by Design specializes in cosmetic Botox treatments that could be exactly what you’re looking for.

Botox, the trademarked name for botulinum toxin, is a neurotoxin that blocks transmitters which cause muscle movement. This, in effect, renders an area of the face where the injection is introduced immobile. The paralysis of the muscles gives a naturally smooth appearance to the face, and reduces the visibility of wrinkles and fine lines throughout the affected area. Botox does extremely well treating the following cosmetic issues:

  • Lines and Creases
  • “Upside-Down” Smile
  • Chronic Pursed Lips
  • Crow’s Feet
  • Puckered Chin
  • Over-Retraction of Upper Lip

It is also an excellent option for treating the following medical conditions:

  • Chronic Migraines
  • Muscle Spasms
  • TMJ Disorder

Botox is an inexpensive, non-invasive solution to a variety of issues, and works well in conjunction with other cosmetic treatments like Juvederm dermal fillers and teeth whitening to maximize your smiles potential. Results with Botox can usually be seen within just a few days, and can last several months, so you will be looking younger faster and longer than you could have believed.

The benefits to cosmetic Botox treatments at Smiles by Design are just a decision away. All you need to do is contact our office to get the process started. Our helpful staff will review your medical history to ensure Botox is right for you, and then the simple, pain-free treatment can begin. Your doctor will use a micro-needle to inject Botox into key muscles that control areas of the face. These injections will spread from the site outward to cover a nickel-sized area. Through the placement of these injections, your dentist will create the wrinkle-free appearance you desire, and give you back the youthful appearance time and the sun have taken from you. The only things you need to avoid for the first 24 hours after treatment are makeup and exercise, so just relax and let the years melt away!

Contact Smiles by Design at our downtown Chicago location to learn more about Botox treatments, and schedule an appointment with us today to start turning back the years on your appearance. We look forward to giving you back what time took away!
