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.  As we age, cellular changes occur and collagen production is reduced. Damage caused by free radicals from the sun and environment also contribute to facial lines.  Repeated movement of the facial muscles is also a factor that can cause facial lines.  BOTOX® Cosmetic addresses that third factor.  

How Does BOTOX® Work?

BOTOX® Cosmetic is injected into the muscles or deep into the skin.  It works by partially blocking nerve impulses to muscles or areas that have been injected, redusing contractions of these muscles.  In this way, BOTOX® Cosmetic reduces facial lines caused by repeated muscle contractions from frowning, squinting, eyebrow raising, and other facial expressions. 

What Can I Expect From Treatment?

Some patients receiving BOTOX® Cosmetic report the injections feel like a pinch. Treatment typically takes about 10 minutes. Dr. Polanco brings the same gentle touch to his facial aesthetic practice that dentistry patients have come to expect.

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.  Results generally last up to four months for moderate to severe lines.

How Can I Get the Best Results From Treatment?

If you want to keep your skin healthy and slow down the aging process, a strategic skin care routine with high quality, effective products is essential.  This is why we offer the award offer the award-winning skin care line Epionce® for sale in our office.
