What is BOTOX®?
BOTOX® is a natural purified protein that temporarily blocks messages being sent from the nerve to the muscle. It can be used for cosmetic or therapeutic purposes. It is administered with a few very tiny injections into the targeted muscles. The treatments are simple, quick, and minimally invasive with no downtime and will gradually wear off naturally after 3-4 months.
Why a Dentist?
Dentists focus the majority of their time on the mouth, face, head and neck and are often faced with patients who suffer from jaw pain, headaches and migraines; as well as those who want to enhance their smiles. Administering neuromodulators such as BOTOX® are a natural adjunctive service for Dentists to provide to their patients. Dentists also have extensive experience giving injections and are very aware of how to keep injections as pain free and comfortable as possible.
BOTOX Cosmetic® is the most popular non-surgical cosmetic procedure done today in North America. It relaxes wrinkle causing muscles, creating a smooth and improved appearance. They have risen to popularity because they are fast, effective, and can look great when performed by a skilled practitioner. BOTOX Cosmetic® is especially powerful for erasing forehead wrinkles, laugh lines, and furrows between the eyes; all of which can make a person look upset or angry, even when he or she is not. The muscle movements of a patient’s lips can all affect the look of a smile making BOTOX Cosmetic® an essential tool in dentistry. This allows Dentists to treat facial esthetics as a whole. Dr. Trofimuk has had extensive training and is licenced to use BOTOX Cosmetic® to help you achieve the smile you desire with a non-surgical and non-invasive approach.
The use of BOTOX® is not limited to its cosmetic benefits. It can be used in the dental office for treatment of jaw pain, migraines and as an adjunctive treatment for bruxing (teeth grinding).
