How Does Botox Work?

Botox is an FDA approved neurotoxin that when injected, relaxes the muscle tissue and reduces contractions that lead to the appearance of lines in the skin. The effect is a smoother appearance in treated areas that lend a more youthful look. Placed around the eyes, nose, forehead, and mouth, Botox will rejuvenate your appearance.

Dr. Jenne will gently clean the area(s) to be treated and place the injection using a very fine needle that penetrates the skin. The entire process is relatively quick and we will provide instructions for after-care to ensure the best results. Patients can resume their normal daily routine after Botox treatment, although it is recommended that you do not recline or lay flat for at least 4 hours.

One of the key benefits of working with Dr. Jenne for facial rejuvenation with Botox is the ability to monitor and maintain your results during routine dental care visits every 6 months. Botox typically lasts about six months and Dr. Jenne can offer touch-ups as needed, making it easy to maintain your appearance.

Botox FAQs

Here are answers to commonly asked questions about Botox treatment. If you have additional questions or would like to explore treatment with Botox, discuss them with our team at your next visit or contact our office.

Does insurance cover Botox?

No, treatment with Botox is considered elective and is not covered by insurance. Sometimes, Botox is used to treat TMJ disorders. In this case, insurance may partially cover it because it’s for restorative purposes.

Is getting Botox painful?

Patients typically experience a slight pinching sensation when an injection is placed, but Botox does not cause significant discomfort. We can also use a local anesthetic to numb the injection site so that you’re more comfortable.

Will my face be sore after Botox?

It is common to experience mild redness, swelling, or tenderness at the injection site(s). This will dissipate in a day or two, and an over-the-counter pain medication can be taken as needed. If you experience more severe pain that lasts longer than a few days, call our office immediately, as this is not a normal reaction.

Should I trust my dentist to do Botox?

Dentists are experts in the muscles and bones of your facial structure. They’re used to working in small spaces and performing extremely precise treatment. Dentists are some of the best people you can trust regarding Botox application. Unlike many cosmetic Botox providers, dentists have a medical background in addition to their expertise.

What can’t I do after Botox?

Before the procedure, we’ll give you a list of guidelines. Avoid alcohol or NSAID pain relievers on the day of your injections, as these can increase the chances of bruising and swelling. We’ll provide precise aftercare instructions to take with you after your appointment. Don’t rub or massage your face for 12 hours, as this can impact the placement of the Botox ingredients.

Am I a good candidate for Botox?

We’ll need to know your medical history before proceeding with Botox. Allergies to the ingredients or certain medical conditions, like MS, make you ineligible for treatment. We also won’t perform Botox on patients under 18 years old or who are pregnant or nursing. We thoroughly consult you before treatment to ensure that it’s a safe option for you.
