Facial Rejuvenation

Botox™ Cosmetic Info

Noticeable results, no surgery, and no recovery time – discover the benefits of Botox at our practice.

There are many different reasons that patients choose to receive Botox treatment, from wanting to remove fine lines and wrinkles to treating more severe conditions such as TMJ and chronic migraines. Botox can relieve any of the symptoms that make you feel less confident, and help you achieve a more youthful, radiant appearance.

Dr. Lau is highly skilled and experienced at helping you achieve nothing but the best facial aesthetics treatments.

What is Botox Cosmetic?

Botox® Cosmetic is a naturally purified protein which is widely used to help reduce the appearance of aging by softening facial lines and wrinkles. Offered by your certified Botox® dentist, it is highly effective for the treatment of expression lines such as “crow’s feet” near the eyes and forehead furrows or frown lines.

It is used as a temporary treatment for patients between the ages of 18 and 65. Botox treatments are quick and comfortable, and within hours you will begin to notice a difference in the way your skin looks and feels.

How does Botox work?

Botox uses a purifed protein to block overactive nerve impulses, restricting muscle contractions. In doing so, Botox helps to relax the muscles beneath the skin, so that fine lines and wrinkles become less visible, giving the skin a healthy, more youthful appearance.

Depending on each individual case, the results can last between one and six months. Treatment is temporary, and once the Botox begins to wear off, the skin will return to the way it looked before treatment. Botox is also used to relieve symptoms of TMJ and headaches.

Am I a good candidate for Botox?

Botox may or may not be the right treatment for you. The best candidates for treatment with Botox are:

  • Between the ages of 18 and 65
  • Diagnosed with, and experiencing discomfort from, TMJ
  • Concerned with removing wrinkles and fine lines
  • Looking for a non-surgical skin treatment
  • Aware that Botox results are temporary
  • In good physical and psychological health
  • Willing to discuss their concerns and desires with their dentist before treatment

If you feel that you are a good candidate for a Botox treatment, and are interested in learning more, please contact our practice to schedule a consultation. Our process involves a $50.00 consultation, at which time we take the Robert’s Facial Aesthetic’s series of 29 diagnostic photos at no cost and these photos are repeated at every appointment so you can see their results. We will be happy to answer any questions you may have.

For a limited time we are providing complimentary Botox consultations to our current patients who are maintaining a regular dental care schedule.
