Are you intrigued by the idea of rejuvenating your appearance and slowing the signs of aging? Botox® has become an increasingly popular choice for individuals in Chattanooga, Hixson, and Trenton seeking non-invasive facial enhancements.

what is Botox®?

Botox®, short for Botulinum Toxin, is a purified protein derived from the bacterium Clostridium botulinum. When administered in small, controlled doses by a trained professional, it can temporarily relax the muscles responsible for wrinkles and fine lines, resulting in a smoother and more youthful appearance.

How Does Botox® Work?

Botox® works by blocking nerve signals in the targeted muscles, reducing their ability to contract. This temporary muscle relaxation softens existing wrinkles and prevents the formation of new ones. The result is a refreshed and rejuvenated appearance.

is Botox® safe?

Botox® is considered safe when administered by a qualified and experienced provider. At True Dental, Dr. Thompson is certified by the American Academy of Facial Esthetics. With extensive head and neck anatomy training, Dr. Thompson has the skills to help you safely achieve the desired results. Rest assured, your safety and well-being are our top priorities.

How long Does Botox® last?

Botox® results typically last about three to six months, depending on individual factors and the treatment area. Follow-up treatments are recommended as needed to maintain your youthful look..

Is There Downtime After Botox®?

One of the advantages of Botox® is that there's minimal to no downtime. You can resume your daily activities immediately after the treatment. Some people may experience mild bruising or redness at the injection sites. However, these effects are usually temporary and can be easily concealed with makeup.

What Areas Can Botox® Treat?

Botox® is commonly used to address wrinkles and lines in several areas, including:

  • Frown Lines: The vertical lines between your eyebrows, often called "11" lines.
  • Forehead Lines: Horizontal lines that appear on your forehead when you raise your eyebrows.
  • Crow’s Feet: The fine lines that radiate from the corners of your eyes when you smile or squint.
  • Bunny Lines: Lines that form on the nose when you scrunch it.
  • Gummy Smile: Excessive gum exposure when smiling.
  • Chin Dimpling: Wrinkles or dimples that appear on the chin.

Is Botox® Only for Cosmetic Purposes?

While Botox®  is widely recognized for its cosmetic benefits, it also has therapeutic applications. It can be used to treat conditions like migraines, excessive sweating (hyperhidrosis), and even jaw clenching and teeth grinding (bruxism).
