Now Offering BOTOX Cosmetic
Electric City Dentistry welcomes patients interested in first-time or continued Botox injections. Our trusted reputation is built on our promise to provide expert treatment in a compassionate, friendly environment. Schedule a personal consultation to find out if Botox is right for you.
Why men and women should consider Botox:
Botox cosmetic will give you a more relaxed, refreshed appearance. Our goal is to create a natural, yet youthful glow, never frozen façade. Botox may also be preventative in reducing new lines from appearing.
Forehead fine lines
11's/in-between the eyebrows
Around the eyes/"crows feet"
Fine lines around lips/"smokers lines"
High smile line/"gummy smile"
Masseter/ large chewing muscle "de plumping" to create a less square jawline
If you suffer tooth or jaw/TMJ pain from clenching or grinding, Botox may help. Botox will also help reduce "lockjaw" symptoms.
Why consider Botox at Electric City Dentistry?
Experience and Expertise
After four years of undergraduate study, dentists receive four intensive years of training in dental medicine at an accredited dental school. A significant portion of this schooling is focused on head and neck anatomy.
Attention to detail
Dentists are extremely detail-oriented as they work in such a small area of the body.
Administering Botox is both a science and an art form. Your facial features are no exception.
Dentists inject multiple times a day. You can ensure we will do everything to make your appointment as comfortable as possible.
Most healthy people visit the dentist more frequently than they do their own primary care physician. We are happy to coordinate your Botox appointments with your hygiene/cleaning visits.
What to expect during your consultation appointment with Dr. Brittany Lahoda
Dr. Lahoda will discuss your individualized cosmetic/therapeutic concerns in conjunction with your medical history. She will examine facial symmetry and movement to asses appropriate and personalized localized dosing, which will correlate to the severity of your condition. Each patient's desired outcomes are unique and the amount of Botox delivered varies between patients.
After receiving Botox Cosmetic:
Avoid laying flat for 3-4 hours after your treatment.
Wait 24 hours for any type of athletic activity or massage therapy.
You may resume your normal skincare routine the same evening. Be gentle not to massage the treated areas too intensely.
Why does my head hurt?
Headaches are uncommon but may occur in a small percent of individuals. Please consult your provider for additional information.
Why do I have a bruise?
Sometimes during administration of Botox, superficial blood vessels may be "grazed" and cause bleeding. This small amount of blood pools under your skin, causing a "bruise". This should heal in 2-4 weeks and can be covered with concealer or makeup.
When will I see results?
For cosmetic purposes, initial results may be visible within 3-4 days and complete results seen within 7-10 days.
For therapeutic purposes, initial results may be felt within one to two weeks. Full jaw slimming/contouring may take up to four weeks.
I think I might need a touch-up.
Since Botox is administered based on subjective anatomical considerations and results are not initially visible, fine-tuning post-op visits are not uncommon. Please contact our office to schedule your visit and we will be happy to address your concerns!
How long will Botox effects last?
3-4 months. Results will fade gradually over the course of the 3-4 month time period. In order to maintain your ideal appearance/therapeutic outcome, our team recommends staying up to date on receiving regular 3/4 month Botox treatments.
