Find out how Botox can improve your appearance.

This simple injectable treatment has become a popular way for both men and women around the world to get younger-looking skin by botoxsmoothing away lines and wrinkles without ever needing surgery. From the offices of our Frederick and Urbana, MD, general, cosmetic, and restorative dentists, Dr. Jared Lawson, Dr. EJ Stringer, Dr. Tammira Badakhshan, and Dr. Nikta Pashai, oral surgeons Dr. Brian Chang and Dr. Leo Perez, periodontist Dr. Ashley Seals, prosthodontist Dr. Amos Chi, orthodontist Dr. Stephen Tigani, pediatric dentist Dr. Leslie Oakes, and endodontist Dr. Patik Patel, here are the benefits of getting Botox:


Treat Fine Lines and Wrinkles Without Surgery

When people think about getting younger-looking skin they often think about lifts, nips, and tucks in order to do it—however, our Frederick and Urbana, MD, dentists make it possible to improve your current appearance and take years off your face without ever having to get invasive cosmetic treatment. If you want to target those early signs of aging, then Botox is right for you!


Lift the Brow Line

As we get older our skin begins to sag and fold, especially around the brow area. By receiving Botox treatment, you can provide this area with a natural lift, making you look less tired as a result.


Treatment is Fast

Another major benefit to Botox treatment is that patients can experience results at an astonishingly quick rate. In fact, it only takes a few minutes to administer the injections, and you can expect to spend around 15 minutes in total in our office.


No Downtime

We know that people lead busy lives, and while they want to get the treatment and care they need to feel confident in their appearance, we also know that many patients can’t take days or weeks off of work for elective treatments. Fortunately, patients who undergo Botox treatment can immediately return to their daily routine, whether that entails running errands or going straight back to work. While there may be some slight redness or soreness near the injection sites, these symptoms are usually very minor and won't impede your routine in the slightest.

Find out how getting Botox could give you a more youthful appearance.

Do you ever look at old photos of yourself and wish you still looked as great? While your Urbana dentists may not be able to make you appear decades younger we can certainly improve the radiance, youthfulness, and appearance of your skin with Botox. You’ll be Botoxamazed with how much younger you look. Find out the many benefits of getting Botox from our Urbana dental office.

What is Botox?

Botox is an injectable made from a neuromuscular toxin known as botulinum toxin that helps to temporarily prevent signals transmitted from the nerves to the muscles that tell the muscles to contract. Botox requires a series of small injections into specific regions of the face, as determined by our professionals.

What are the benefits?

Botox is a fast and easy way to reduce certain facial lines and wrinkles due to age, stress or environmental factors. Imagine wiping away years from your skin with just one quick treatment. Botox is designed to smooth out wrinkles around the mouth, forehead, eyes (crow’s feet) and nose to give you a younger-looking appearance.

Are you dealing with smile, frown or laugh lines? No problem. Botox can easily treat these types of dynamic wrinkles. And since Botox is only designed to affect the muscle nerves not sensation nerves patients will not experience a loss of sensation in the treated areas.

Botox results will start to appear in as little as a few days, with the most dramatic results lasting up to four months. Better yet, if you want to continue maintaining your youthful look you can keep getting subsequent Botox treatments in Urbana couple times a year.
