What Is BOTOX?
Smoothing the visible signs of aging in the upper face and forehead can be quick and safe with BOTOX Cosmetic from PURE Oral Surgery in Dallas, TX. A clean strain of botulinum toxin (type A), BOTOX injections temporarily block the movements of facial muscles that work to make facial expressions in the upper brow region. The lines that develop from these repetitive muscle contractions are caused by facial activity and are called "dynamic lines." After a certain age, these dynamic lines tend to become more pronounced, even when the face is at rest. BOTOX can dramatically and temporarily smooth the look of lines and wrinkles by limiting these facial expressions, giving the skin time to rebound. Our skilled oral surgery experts are excited to offer BOTOX Cosmetic to help men and women in the DFW area obtain the smooth-skinned results they desire!

Should I Get BOTOX?
BOTOX may be ideal for adults who hope to smooth or prevent the visible look of facial wrinkles and creases in a nonsurgical way. Our team may also administer a form of BOTOX to treat TMJ (temporomandibular joint) disorders or bruxism (teeth grinding or clenching), to reduce a high lip line and the appearance a "gummy smile," or to help relieve chronic migraine headaches. When used for aesthetic purposes, BOTOX Cosmetic can temporarily diminish the appearance of:
- Forehead lines or creases
- Parallel lines between the brows ("elevens")
- Crow's feet around the eyes
After evaluating your degree of skin elasticity and desired outcome, the PURE Oral Surgery team will help you determine whether BOTOX injections are ideal for your goals and needs.
What to Expect During Treatment
BOTOX injections are provided within one of our comfortable treatment rooms and may be performed alone or as a complement to your dental procedure. You will be asked to make various facial expressions using your upper face, such as frowning, squinting, and smiling, which will help our oral surgeons visualize where the injections are to be placed. BOTOX is most commonly administered between the brows, on Crow's feet around the eyes, and throughout the forehead. These treatments at our Dallas, TX oral surgery practices typically take about 10 – 15 minutes and generally require little to no downtime.
After BOTOX Injections
Following your BOTOX injections, you may resume your typical activities, but strenuous exercise should be avoided for at least 24 hours. You will be advised to sleep with your head elevated for at least one night and to avoid touching your face, which may accidentally spread the solution to other areas. The treatment sites may be slightly swollen, bruised, or red for 2 – 3 days, but these effects should subside on their own. In many cases, it takes around one week before the full effects of BOTOX are visible with the results generally lasting 3 – 4 months. Our team can help you decide when to schedule your next appointment at PURE Oral Surgery to maintain your aesthetic results.
