While a more attractive smile is at the forefront of most dental visits, many patients also want to achieve a more youthful appearance overall. When patients come to StarBrite Dental Dublin with concerns about their aging appearance, Dr. Munira Lokhandwala and her dental team may be able to help. Patients can now achieve a more youthful look with Botox injections. Botox can be used for:
- TMJ/TMD treatments
- Chronic headaches and migraines
- Cosmetic purposes (remove smile lines and chin lines)
Botox can be injected into specific muscles to reduce contractions, and therefore, smooth out skin and reduce the appearance of wrinkles and folds. These folds can result in a more aged look and many patients feel it takes away from their overall appearance and youthfulness. Since Dr. Munira Lokhandwala already has years of experience providing injections for dental patients, it made sense that she integrate anti-aging services into her practice. She has also been able to use Botox injections to help patients who suffer from temporomandibular joint disorders or bruxism, as this medication can help relax the muscles and reduce pain and discomfort.
Botox is safe and has FDA approval for the use in cosmetic and medical improvements. It is made of botulinum toxin type A which is safe to inject and can address muscle contractions. When administered by a dental professional such as Dr. Munira Lokhandwala, patients will reduce their risk of problems occurring due to use and practically eliminate the possibility of side effects.
Botox is best used on areas of the face including around the eyes for crow’s feet, between the eyebrows, and on the forehead. This can eliminate the wrinkles that develop due to muscle contractions and they can be reversed considerably with the use of this injectable cosmetic solution.
