As a member of the American Academy of Facial Esthetics, Dr. Arnold now offers patients even more ways to care for their smile! Arvada Dental Center is proud to offer Botox® and JUVÉDERM® to adult patients.
Botox® is used to temporarily improve the look forehead lines, crow’s feet, and frown lines between the eyebrows. Often without noticing, the muscles between your brows regularly contract causing the skin to furrow and fold, and squinting your eyes cause the muscles around them to create crow’s feet in the skin. Botox® works to temporarily reduce the muscle activity that causes facial wrinkles to form in these areas.
To begin your Botox® procedure, Dr. Arnold will use either ice or a topical numbing cream to prepare the areas for treatment. To soothe frown lines in between the eyebrows, Dr. Arnold will make five injections into the muscles of the forehead. To soothe the look of crow’s feet, Dr. Arnold will make three injections near the muscle that frames the side of the eye. This will be done on both eyes. In both areas, Botox® will cause a temporary reduction in activity in those muscles which will results in a more relaxed, smooth appearance.
Botox® treatment requires minimal downtime and the recovery time is brief. You should be able to get back to your normal day-to-day activates as soon as your appointment is over. Expect to see noticeable results within 24-48 hours with results lasting up to four months.
