Why do dentists do Botox ?
People are often surprised that dentists offer Botox and other facial aesthetics treatments.
In fact in makes good sense. These treatments require a detailed knowledge of head and neck anatomy and physiology. So professionals who have studied these areas and are also involved in cosmetic dental treatments are in a good place to treat the soft tissues that surround the teeth.
Dentists use botulinum toxin to relax the muscles that causes facial lines. These are typically, frown lines, nose wrinkle lines and smile lines around the eyes. Because facial muscles overlap each other in layers, it is important for the injections to be at the correct depth as well as in the right area to achieve the desired result.
Treatments usually last from 3 to 9 months depending on the dose given and other factors.
Can Botox really be used to stop under arm perspiration?
Yes. This is called hyperhydrosis. This is a common condition where excessive under-arm sweating results in inconvenience or embarrassment. Treatment consists of a number of tiny injections which stop the sweat glands from operating for about six months. The injections are surprisingly painless especially after application of anaesthetic cream to the skin beforehand.
Are there any risks associated with Botox treatments?
Botulinum toxin has been used for many years now in many branches of medicine as well as cosmetic treatments. There are very few reported side effects or allergies and treatments are always naturally reversible. Most patients are delighted with the results and many return regularly for repeat treatments.
