At Preferred Dental Care, our dentist, Dr. Chris A. Gipe is pleased to offer BOTOX® treatment for our patients in Los Alamitos, California, and the surrounding areas. While Botox is most often used to improve one’s appearance, it is also used to treat certain chronic ailments, including chronic facial pain. Let’s take a quick look at some common questions we are asked.

What does BOTOX do? Along with cosmetic improvements, BOTOX is also able to reduce migraine headaches, treat TMJ disorder, and to reduce excessive sweating. Excessive underarm sweating, or hyperhidrosis, can be halted as BOTOX blocks or interrupts this chemical process. It effectively “turns off” sweating at the area where it has been injected.

How does BOTOX work? Our dentist injects onabotulinumtoxinA (BOTOX) into the tiny muscles in your face. When it is injected into the muscles of the brow, it can smooth the frown lines between the brows and crow’s feet, diminishing them.

How long does BOTOX last? Your BOTOX results can last up to four months and is currently the only approved treatment to temporarily improve the appearance of moderate to severe frown lines and crow’s feet lines. It is that effective, as well as safe. If you are needing a boost to your self-confidence, BOTOX can help you as you regain a more youthful appearance.

Dr. Chris A. Gipe and our team are pleased to help our patients whether you are seeking relief from chronic pain or seeking a more youthful, fresh appearance. BOTOX treatment is a quick and comfortable way to accomplish those goals. If you are considering BOTOX for what ails you, please schedule a consultation to learn more.
