In Holmdel, NJ, Dr. Dipika Shah does more than take care of her patients’ teeth. She helps her patients feel truly confident with their smiles by providing facial rejuvenation procedures. With BOTOX®, our office is able to help you look as young as you feel.
As you age and your skin loses its elasticity, the repeated contractions of these muscles cause wrinklelines. BOTOX® is a medication used in facial aesthetics to temporarily improve the appearance of moderate to severe wrinkle lines by reducing the activity in the muscles that can cause wrinkles overtime.
The active ingredient in BOTOX® is botulinum toxin type A, which acts on nerve endings in muscles to prevent muscle fibers from contracting. If the muscles’ contractions are minimized, then frown lines can be temporarily reduced. The FDA-approved treatment can be used on patients between 18 and 65 years old and has effects that last for several months. It is most commonly used to treat crow’s feet and wrinkles on the nose, between the eyes, on the forehead and on the chin.
If you want to regain youthful confidence in your skin and in your smile, Dr. Shah is a professional with years of experience. To schedule an appointment with our office, call 732-264-8180. For more information, please visitwww.dentistnj.com.
