Did you know that we offer facial rejuvenation services? That’s right! Krengel Dental has certified practitioners for both Botox and Juvederm right on site. Botox is a popular, non-invasive procedure for reducing wrinkles caused by consistent muscle contractions. These wrinkles can include forehead lines, frown lines, and crows feet. But did you know that Botox can be used for more than cosmetic reasons? Let’s talk about its other benefits!
What is Botox?
Botox is what we call a neuromodulator. It is made from a purified toxin that is produced by clostridium botulinum, a type of bacteria. These neurotoxins block nerve signals to the muscles in your face that allow you to make facial expressions. In turn, Botox helps to smooth out wrinkles and can help to reduce migraines, gummy smiles, and even excessive sweating!
Manage Those Migraines
Using Botox to reduce migraines has become increasingly popular throughout the years. Botox relaxes the muscles in the head and can block pain signals. This is done by injecting the forehead, temples, and scalp.
Gummy Smile Be Gone!
For patients that would like to reduce their gummy smile, Botox can be just the trick! To achieve this, a practitioner will inject Botox into the upper lip muscles to paralyze them. This method can temporarily reduce the amount of gum that shows when you flash your pearly whites.
Slow Down the Sweating
If you notice that you sweat more than the average person, you may be experiencing hyperhidrosis. This is a very common condition that causes excessive sweating, most often in the palms of the hands, soles of the feet, and armpits. If Botox is injected into sweat glands, they can no longer receive the signals that cause perspiration. This can help to temporarily reduce sweating!
