Happiness, excitement, surprise…these are emotions communicated through your face. While facial expressions are part of everyday life, the subsequent wrinkles and forehead lines are frowned upon by many people. Facial wrinkles reveal your actual age and are unsightly to look at.
Lone Star Smiles in Lubbock, Texas, understands you want to look young forever. We offer Botox injections to smooth away wrinkles and fine lines from your face without incisions or surgery. This cosmetic injectable delivers stunning results that can last up to six months!
Botox, in full botulinum toxin, is a neurotoxin injected into your facial muscles to reduce wrinkles. Botox doesn’t affect the muscles themselves but the transmitters between the motor nerves. Botox prevents muscle contraction, leading to tighter, smoother skin for a youthful appearance.
It’s common to associate Botox with dermatologists, but you might be surprised to learn that our dental office at Lone Star Smiles is equipped to handle such procedures. Our team is trained in esthetics to handle Botox and other cosmetic care procedures.
Even better, having cared for your smile for a while, we know your oral health too well. Besides our well-established rapport, we’re familiar with every aspect of your teeth, gums, mouth, and face to administer esthetic procedures precisely, including Botox.
Botox is a pretty quick procedure, lasting 15-30 minutes. Although no anesthesia is required to administer facial injections, we may numb your face and use nitrous oxide for added comfort.
Botox will be injected into areas associated with facial muscles. Your targeted areas include the forehead, eyes, and brows. After the procedure, you can resume your everyday activities. The only precaution is to avoid rubbing your face to prevent Botox from leaking into unwanted areas.
Most patients see Botox results in as little as three to four days. However, since Botox results aren’t permanent, you need follow-up appointments every four to six months.
