Look & Feel Younger with Botox®
Skin wrinkles are a natural part of aging, but we all wish we could stay looking younger for longer. Botox®, is one of the safest procedures for combating the effects of aging. This safe, quick procedure delivers lasting results that take years off your appearance.
Botox® works by weakening the muscles that cause the skin to crease, which decreases the prominence and number of wrinkles.
We are AAFE Certified
Our own Dr. Ashely Parker is certified by the American Academy of Facial Esthetics (AAFE). This healthcare organization educates medical providers about non-surgical and non-invasive facial procedures.
The AAFE certifies a variety of clinicians including doctors, dentists, and nurses, and we are proud to be among them.
About The Treatment
Your Botox® appointment will take 20-40 minutes. You will notice the results immediately following your procedure. Within 3-5 days, the results will be fully visible.
Botox® is a purified protein that temporarily blocks nerve signals, temporarily relaxing the muscles in your face so that the skin lays flat over the top. These results typically last for 3-6 months.
Why Would I Go to a Dentist for Botox®?
At GVR Dental and Orthodontics, Dr. Parker performs Botox® procedures. She is very familiar with the head and neck anatomy, which gives her the skills and expertise needed to skillfully administer Botox®.
While traditionally you may think going to a surgeon is the only way to get Botox®, that is not the case. According to Louis Malcmacher, President of the AAFE:
“The AAFE faculty—which comprises various physicians, nurses, and dentists—will agree wholeheartedly that dental professionals have the skills to deliver outstanding treatment outcomes with Botox.”
How Much Botox® Will I Need?
Botox® is measured in increments called units. A unit represents a defined amount of potency, similar to milligrams in a pill or milliliters in a liquid medication.
The number of units you need varies depending on the area you wish to treat and your unique skin. In general, treating the space between your eyebrows takes about 20 units. Crows feet typically require 5-15 units.
