Botox is a protein we inject into muscles to smooth wrinkles. The procedure is most commonly injected into the forehead, brow area, and around the eyes to help smooth any wrinkles Lanier Orthodontics is proud to offer this service to our adult patients to provide a more youthful and energetic appearance in addition to your beautiful new smile. While Botox is only a temporary treatment, it can help you achieve the aesthetics you’ve always wanted. Our team is skilled at using this tool to help patients get the look they want, so you can have peace of mind that you are under the care of a highly-trained professional.
Beyond beautiful aesthetics, Botox can have many health benefits that provide patients with a level of comfort they didn’t know was possible. This injection is often used to treat Temporomandibular Joint disorders (TMD) that cause pain in the jaw and surrounding muscles. Botox will limit the jaw’s functionality and provide the patient with pain relief so they don’t experience discomfort when biting, eating, speaking, and more. This treatment can also reduce migraines so you experience ultimate comfort and aesthetics.
Once we inject the Botox, you can continue your day without any recovery period. We work hard to ensure you are always comfortable and well informed about your treatments, and we will walk you through the Botox process, so you don’t have to guess. Results typically take from 2-10 days to begin showing.
In addition to Botox treatments, we also offer dermal fillers as an injectable treatment to add volume, enhance features, smooth out lines, and create a more youthful appearance. As you age, it’s natural for your skin to lose its elasticity. There are different dermal fillers to serve specific functions, such as stimulating the production of collagen or restoring hyaluronic acid to help smooth wrinkles and give you a softer and smoother appearance.
