Orthodontists are specialists in both dental and facial esthetics. Dr. Milnor has always been interested in “face” based treatment to ensure as much as possible that your smile matches and enhances your facial features. For adult patients, Botox can contribute significantly to overall facial esthetics and is incredibly safe and effective.

What is Botox® Cosmetic?

Botox® Cosmetic is a purified protein that is injected into specific facial muscles responsible for causing wrinkles over-time. Botox® Cosmetic acts by reducing the muscular activity of these muscles which in-turn relaxes your wrinkles. Botox® Cosmetic is a non-surgical, non-invasive, and safe treatment FDA approved for both treatment of lines between your brows and lateral canthal lines or crow’s feet. You can expect to see results with Botox® Cosmetic 1-4 weeks after your injections. Your results will last about 3-4 months.

Is treatment painful?

Most patients report brief, minimal discomfort during their injections. Most individuals do not use numbing gel however topical anesthetic is available upon request.

When should Botox® Cosmetic be avoided?
  • If you have any infection present in the treatment area
  • If you have had an allergic reaction to any other botulinum toxin product in the past
  • If you are allergic to any of the ingredients in BOTOX® Cosmetic
  • Active ingredient: botulinum toxin type A
  • Inactive ingredients: human albumin and sodium chloride
  • If you have a breathing, swallowing, or bleeding problem
  • If you recently had surgery on your face
  • If you are pregnant or are breast-feeding
  • If you have a neuromuscular disorders such as ALS, myasthenia gravis, or Lambert-Eaton syndrome.
  • Individuals with these disorders may be at an increased risk of serious side effects and are not good candidates for Botox® Cosmetic injections.
What are the possible side effects of Botox® Cosmetic?

Localized discomfort at injection sites, tenderness, swelling, bleeding, bruising, temporary eyelid drop, and headache.

Will my facial expressions continue to look natural?

Although the results are visible, treatment with BOTOX® Cosmetic will not radically change your facial appearance or make you look as if you’ve “had work done.” The muscle activity that causes frown lines between the brows is temporarily reduced, so you can still frown or look surprised without the wrinkles and creases between your brows.

What happens if I discontinue Botox® Cosmetic treatment?

Your wrinkles will gradually reappear and look like they did prior to treatment.
