WHY SHOULD I SEE Dr. McOmie FOR BOTOX TREATMENT?

Botox administered by Dr. McOmie who has been properly trained has many beauty and dental health advantages:

  • Dr. McOmie gives more injections than most other medical professionals and can make them as painless as possible
  • Dr. McOmie has studied and mastered the musculature & anatomy of the face, neck, and head, making him more than competent for giving Botox injections
  • Cosmetic dentists understand how to utilize Botox injections to enhance your smile in ways plastic surgeons don’t usually consider

HOW DOES BOTOX® COSMETIC WORK?

BOTOX® Cosmetic targets one of the underlying causes of frown lines and crow’s feet—the repeated muscle contractions from frowning and squinting over the years. Dr. McOmie will inject these muscles with BOTOX® Cosmetic to temporarily reduce muscle activity. You will begin to notice a visible smoothing of your crow’s feet lines and frown lines between your brows.

Wrinkles result from a combination of many factors. It’s not just about cellular changes that can occur over time, reduction of collagen, or damage caused by free radicals in the sun and the environment. When you frown or concentrate, the muscles between your brows contract, causing your skin to furrow and fold. And when you squint, the muscles around your eyes contract and cause crow’s feet.

BOTOX® Cosmetic works beneath the skin’s surface and targets the underlying muscle activity that causes frown lines and crow’s feet.

Treatment for the frown lines area

Dr. McOmie will administer five injections into muscles in your forehead and one in the procerus muscle and four in the corrugator muscles.

Injecting BOTOX® Cosmetic into the muscles that cause frown lines temporarily reduces the activity of those muscles. The result is a reduction in the appearance of those lines.

Treatment For the crow’s feet area

Dr. McOmie will inject three areas of the orbicularis oculi, the muscle that frames the side of the eye. This will be repeated on the orbicularis oculi muscle on the other eye.

Injecting BOTOX® Cosmetic into the muscles that cause crow’s feet lines temporarily reduces the activity of those muscles. The result is a reduction in the appearance of those lines.

BOTOX® injections can ease the symptoms associated with TMJ/TMD.

BOTOX® Therapeutic dentistry is a modern treatment that is useful for relaxing muscles in the jaw that cause some of the most common symptoms of TMD, including clenching and grinding of the teeth. Dr. McOmie administers a few quick BOTOX® injections into the targeted area to relax the jaw muscles and ease these symptoms for several weeks.

WHAT SHOULD I EXPECT WITH TREATMENT?

Real, noticeable results

You may begin to notice results within 24 to 48 hours for moderate to severe frown lines, with results lasting up to 4 months.

Some patients report that being injected with BOTOX® Cosmetic feels like a pinch

If you are concerned about discomfort, Dr. McOmie may apply a topical numbing cream before administering your treatment.

The actual injection process takes about 10 minutes

Dr. McOmie will discuss your treatment goals and perform a facial analysis to determine the appropriate treatment areas for you.

You’ll look like yourself—only with less noticeable frown lines and crow’s feet

BOTOX® Cosmetic is a technique-sensitive treatment. You should not lose the ability to show expression when you are treated by Dr. McOmie, who is licensed, trained and a medical expert in facial anatomy.

Return to your daily routine

Treatment requires minimal downtime or recovery; it’s often called a lunchtime procedure. You’ll be able to go about your normal routine immediately after you leave our office.

Cost considerations

Your cost not only includes the price of the product but more importantly, the skill and expertise of Dr. McOmie, who is administering your treatment.

Be wary of discount products or “cheap” BOTOX® Cosmetic—if it sounds too good to be true, it probably is.

We will take the time to understand your treatment goals and develop a treatment plan that is right for you.
