Community Dental Care Offers BOTOX® Cosmetic to Help You Look Your Best

Community Dental Care is happy to offer BOTOX® Cosmetic. BOTOX® Cosmetic is the only treatment FDA-approved to temporarily improve the appearance of moderate to severe frown lines, crow's feet and forehead lines look in adults.  Dr. Polanco has completed advanced training and is a certified Botox provider.

Facial lines are caused by a combination of factors.  While the cellular changes that may occur, or reduction of collagen, or damage caused by free radicals from the sun and the environment contribute, repeated facial movements is also a factor.  Facial lines also result from repeated muscle contractions from frowning, squinting, eyebrow raising and other facial expressions.  These movements result in facial lines over time.

How Does BOTOX® Work?

BOTOX® Cosmetic works by temporarily reducing the underlying muscle activity that causes facial lines.  It is a quick 10-minute treatment with minimal downtime. You may begin to notice results within 24 to 48 hours, with results lasting up to 4 months for moderate to severe frown lines.  

What Can I Expect From Treatment?

Some patients receiving BOTOX® Cosmetic report the injections feel like a pinch. You may begin to notice a visible smoothing of frown lines, crow’s feet and forehead lines within 24 to 48 hours, with results lasting up to 4 months for moderate to severe frown lines.

How Long Does Botox Last?

BOTOX® Cosmetic is not a permanent treatment. If you discontinue treatment the moderate to severe frown lines, crow's feet and forehead lines will gradually return.
