BOTOX Injections

Facial lines and wrinkles can leave you looking older than you feel. Instead of getting a facelift, consider BOTOX® Cosmetic injections.

A quick cosmetic injection at Gulch Dental Studio may be all you need to look rejuvenated. BOTOX treatment can be done during your lunch break.

BOTOX therapy at our Nashville, TN, dental spa is ideal for safe and fast cosmetic enhancement.

What Is BOTOX Cosmetic? The Basics of BOTOX

A safe, cosmetic form of botulinum toxin, BOTOX is an FDA-approved solution for frown lines and facial wrinkles. Even though BOTOX continues to surge in popularity, there are numerous misconceptions and misunderstandings about it.

Here are three basic facts patients should know.

An Alternative to Surgery

Rather than undergo a facial plastic surgery to reduce wrinkles, patients can get BOTOX Cosmetic injections instead. It's a low-risk alternative to a facelift.

A Cosmetic Injectable

Cosmetic injections are extremely sought after today. BOTOX is the most popular and well known cosmetic injectable given its effectiveness and reliable results.

Prevents Muscles Contractions

While many injectables add volume to the injection area to fill wrinkles, BOTOX instead stops muscle contractions. This prevents dynamic wrinkles from appearing.

The Benefits of BOTOX Injections The Advantages of Non-Surgical Facial Rejuvenation

BOTOX Cosmetic has become so popular because the benefits are numerous and the drawbacks and low. The key benefits of this cosmetic injectable are as follows.

Short Treatment Time

Most BOTOX Cosmetic treatments take less than 10 minutes to complete. Patients can stop by and be out in no time. This is why BOTOX injections are called a "lunchtime" procedure.

No Downtime After Treatment

BOTOX sessions lead to minimal discomfort and few interruptions in your routine. Patients can return to most non-strenuous activities immediately after their injections.

Results Apparent in a Few Days

The final results of a BOTOX injection will take just a few days to become apparent. The majority of patients will experience the full anti-aging benefits of BOTOX within two weeks.

No Scarring or Visible Marks

BOTOX Cosmetic doesn't require incisions and the needle is very small. Following treatment, there will be no scarring or visible marks on the face, just wrinkle-free skin.

Treating Dental Problems with BOTOX More Than Just Wrinkle Reduction

While BOTOX Cosmetic is best known for its anti-aging benefits, we can also treat dental health problems with carefully planned injections.

Teeth Grinding (Bruxism)

Bruxism refers to inadvertent gnashing, shifting, and jaw clenching while a person is asleep. It's often the result of poor tooth alignment and excessive stress. If left untreated, teeth grinding can cause tooth fractures, jaw pain, gum recession, headaches, and an inability to have a restful night of sleep. BOTOX treatment for teeth grinding targets the masseter muscle, which is responsible for jaw movement. This provides temporary pain relief as well as reduced grinding at night.

TMJ Disorders (TMD)

The temporomandibular joint (TMJ) is one of the most complicated joints in the body. When trauma or other conditions alter the proper alignment of the jaw, it can lead to dysfunction. This is known as a TMJ disorder. Treating TMJ disorders often requires multiple approaches to improve jaw function and relieve pain. Since TMJ disorders are often associated with teeth grinding, BOTOX treatments can target the masseter muscle for pain relief and reduced strain on the jaw joint.

The BOTOX Injection Procedure What Patients Can Expect

BOTOX Cosmetic sessions are quick and easy. Here's a rundown of the entire treatment process and what to expect after your injection therapy session is completed.
This is why BOTOX injections are called a "lunchtime" procedure.
This is why BOTOX injections are called a "lunchtime" procedure.

Preparing for Treatment

Before your visit, it's best to avoid the use or intake of tobacco, alcohol, and anti-inflammatory drugs. This reduces the risk of bleeding and bruising.

Numbing the Injection Site

During the actual visit to our Nashville practice for BOTOX treatment, you'll be offered a numbing cream. This local anesthetic minimizes pain around the treatment site.

Injecting the BOTOX

The BOTOX Cosmetic is injected into the problem areas using a very fine needle. Careful planning allows us to determine the ideal injection site location.

Back to Your Day

Since the process only takes several minutes, patients will be in and out of the practice in no time. You can resume most normal activities right after your visit is done.

Proper Aftercare

Patients should avoid rubbing the injection sites and performing any strenuous exercise or physical activities for at least 24 hours. This ensure optimal outcomes.

The Final Results

The results of BOTOX treatment should be apparent within a few days, though it could take up to two weeks. Expect smooth skin and a more youthful appearance.
Do you have questions about the procedure? Are you ready to get started? Either way, start with a free cosmetic consultation. In some cases, we can even provide same-day BOTOX treatments. Message our office now and we'll get back to you shortly.

Potential Side Effects

BOTOX Cosmetic is the most common non-surgical cosmetic procedure done each year. Even though it is considered safe and effective, there is always potential for side effects with any cosmetic treatment.

The most common side effects are pain, bruising, and swelling. After your injections at our Nashville practice, you will receive a list of activities to avoid to help prevent these side effects from worsening. If you experience any mild pain, bruising, or swelling, lightly apply an ice pack to the injection areas to manage these side effects and provide pain relief.

Other Common Side Effects Include:

  • Headache or flu-like symptoms
  • Droopy eyelid
  • Crooked eyebrow
  • Nausea
  • Temporary facial drooping

When Should I Call My Doctor?

  • Blurred vision
  • Trouble speaking or swallowing
  • Difficulty breathing
  • Muscle weakness or paralysis outside of the injection site
  • Loss of bladder control

Follow Your Doctor's Instructions So the Botulinum Toxin Stays in Place

You do not want the botulinum toxin to move from the site where it was injected. If the botulinum toxin migrates outside of the injection site, it can alter your treatment plan, causing muscle weakness and paralysis of an unaffected area. Depending on how far the botulinum toxin migrates, it can cause more severe physical health issues throughout your body. Always follow your recovery instructions and call immediately if you notice anything unusual.

BOTOX Cosmetic is considered a "lunchtime procedure," meaning you can come to our Nashville office to get injected during lunch then go straight back to work. However, there are certain activities that need to be restricted to reduce your chances of adverse side effects after treatment.

Delay Your Exercise Routine

You should not exercise for at least 24 hours after your appointment. Exercise increases blood flow which can increase the potential for bruising and swelling.

Do Not Touch Your Face

Do not touch, massage, rub, poke, or put makeup on your face for at least 24 hours after the procedure. Touching the injection sites can increase the risk of the botulinum toxin moving into other areas of the face.

Avoid Lying Down

Be sure to sit straight up or stand for the first four hours after your procedure. Lying down too soon can increase the risk of the botulinum toxin moving outside of the treatment area.

No Alcohol

Before your BOTOX procedure, you will need to abstain from drinking alcohol for at least 24 hours. This is also the case after your treatment. Alcohol thins the blood, which can increase your chances of bruising and swelling.

Types of Botulinum Toxin Injections

There are three main brands of botulinum toxin injectables: BOTOX Cosmetic, Dysport®, and XEOMIN®. Each brand is FDA-approved and is an effective anti-wrinkle treatment. BOTOX, Dysport, and XEOMIN inject the same botulinum toxin, so the effects of each last for around the same amount of time. Our Nashville, TN, office carries BOTOX, the first to hit the market and widely considered to be the most trusted brand of wrinkle treatment.

Teeth Whitening

Professional teeth whitening is one of the simplest, most affordable cosmetic dentistry solutions. A bright, white smile that has a uniform shade can take years off your appearance. And like BOTOX, you could consider teeth whitening a lunchtime procedure because we can achieve incredible results in under an hour. We also offer take-home kits to touch up your results.

Porcelain Veneers

Like the skin of our face, our teeth eventually start to reflect our age. Over time our teeth can become discolored, worn, and chipped. Regardless of the effects of aging, you might have always disliked a gap between your teeth or other imperfections. Veneers are a wonderfully versatile treatment to mask virtually any concern.

Had my teeth cleaned and had a wonderful experience with my hygienists & the dentists. The atmosphere is welcoming and clean. It was also nice they have toothbrushes, floss, and mouthwash on site since I had a late afternoon appointment. I had a Invisalign consultation as well and I appreciated all the questions answered and time spent to go over the process with me! Highly recommend this office.

Are the Results of BOTOX Injections Worth the Price?

It is hard to put a price on confidence. If you can't stop staring at the crow's feet near your eyes and eyelids or the frown lines between your eyebrows, the effects of BOTOX Cosmetic might be worth the price for you. Not only will you see your results quickly, but the effects of BOTOX Cosmetic can help prevent wrinkles and fine lines from developing further over time.

FAQ About BOTOX Cosmetic

Do the injections hurt?

No. We administer BOTOX using a very fine needle. Though you might feel a brief, slight pinch in some areas, like around the mouth, other areas like the forehead involve no pain at all.

Does insurance cover BOTOX injections?

It depends. Like other types of elective procedures, if you choose to receive BOTOX for cosmetic reasons, it will not be covered. In cases of TMJ disorder treatment, we will help you verify whether your insurance will contribute to the cost. 

Do you accept financing for BOTOX treatment?

Yes. If you'd like help breaking up out-of-pocket costs, you can explore financing through CareCredit®. These plans feature little to no interest and can be used to cover all kinds of procedures. We also accept American Express, Discover, MasterCard, and Visa, but it's helpful to compare interest rates before you hand over your card.

Am I too young for BOTOX?

The minimum age for BOTOX Cosmetic is 18. While we don't promote the use of BOTOX injections for young adults, more of our Nashville patients are reaping its ability to prevent–as well as treat–the formation of wrinkles. Consider incorporating periodic treatments in your anti-aging arsenal in the same way that you do good sun protection. We can discuss your candidacy in more depth during a consultation.
