Botox is a drug derived from a neurotoxin produced by the bacteria Clostridium botulinum. It is a purified protein and very safe for patients. Botox has been used for over 25 years to treat a myriad of areas and conditions. Botulinum toxin can relax the muscles on areas of the face and neck, which cause wrinkles associated with facial expressions or facial pain. Treatment with Botox can cause your facial expression lines or wrinkles to be less noticeable or essentially disappear. Dr. Feldman is highly trained in providing Botox treatment. At Gainesville Dentistry Co., we can address some of the following areas: Forehead lines (frontalis), frown lines (glabellar complex), crow's feet (orbicularis oculi), gummy smiles (LLSAN), bunny lines (nasalis), chin dimpling/shortening (mentalis), marionette lines (DAOs), smoker's lines (orbicularis oris), necklace lines/platysmal bands, clenching/grinding/headaches (masseters and/or temporalis). As you can see, we can treat a lot of areas of concern with Botox. We address both therapeutic and cosmetic needs at our practice.
