Bel-Red Best Smiles - Internal

When you’re rounding the bend in the second half of your 40s, you see more than just the strands of silver coming in at your temples. Besides the smile lines that run from the corners of your nose down to each side of your mouth, you probably couldn’t help noticing the crow’s feet around the outside of your eyes and the “elevens” entrenched between your brows.

The aging process causes cellular changes that decrease the skin’s elasticity and its ability to produce natural oils. Additionally, factors that include facial expressions, UV light from the sun, dehydration, and smoking can bring the facial lines on sooner than they otherwise would have appeared.

While wrinkles are inevitable, you can reduce their effects on your skin with Botox® injections.


How Does Botox® Work?

Doctors use FDA-approved Botox®, a safe neuroprotein made from botulinum toxin, as a non-invasive cosmetic treatment to reduce the appearance of skin wrinkles. When injected into the face in small doses, its active ingredient interrupts the nerve signals between the brain and facial muscles. As a result, Botox® helps eliminate the facial lines by relaxing the muscles in the forehead, around the eyes, across the bridge of the nose, chin, and on each side of the mouth.

What Can I Expect During My Appointment?

Whether you’ve had Botox® before or educated yourself on the process, a consultation is required before your initial treatment. Besides letting us know your goals and expectations, this is the perfect time to ask questions and express any concerns you might have. We’ll ask you to share the details of your health and medical history to determine the best course of treatment based on your desired outcome.

In most cases, the total treatment time only takes a few minutes. The assistant will numb the injection site before the dentist uses a thin needle to inject a small amount of Botox® into the target areas. Moreover, you can get back to your daily routine when your treatment is finished.

Who Administers the Treatment?

Dr. Sharma is a certified member of the American Academy of Facial Esthetics and is trained to deliver Botox®, dermal fillers, and PDO smooth and lifting threads. As a dentist, she has in-depth knowledge and awareness of the facial nerves, muscles, and skeletal structure.
