Botox Cosmetic

At Navarro Dental Group, we believe that a youthful look begins with a healthy smile, however, we know that it doesn’t end there. Our East Islip office is leading the charge in offering facial enhancements in combination with cosmetic dentistry to create the perfect youthful look for every patient. That is why we are pleased to offer Botox Cosmetic to compliment your great smile. We can use Botox to smooth out forehead wrinkles, frown lines, and crows feet. When used correctly, Botox can give you that youthful glow without the appearance that you had anything done. In addition to Botox Cosmetic services, Navarro Dental Group also offers dermal filler services, which vary in methods of treatment.

East Islip Botox Injections

Frequently Asked Questions:

When will I see results from Botox® Treatment?

Within days you may see a marked improvement in the moderate-to-severe frown lines between your brows. Lines continue to improve for up to 30 days and results can last up to 4 months! Individual results may vary.

How does Botox® Cosmetic work?

Botox® is a prescription medicine that is injected into the muscles and used to improve the look of the “11’s”, the moderate-to-severe frown lines between the eyebrows (glabellar lines). It works by blocking the nerve impulses to the injected muscles. This reduces muscle activity that causes moderate to severe lines that form between the brows which cause problems like frown lines and crows feet.

Is Botox® Treatment painful?

Discomfort is usually minimal and brief. Prior to injection, Dr. Navarro may choose to numb the area. The entire procedure takes approximately 20 minutes. Most patients are in and out of our office without any downtime following Botox® treatment.

How long does Botox® last?

Within days you may see a marked improvement in the moderate-to-severe frown lines between your brows. Lines continue to improve for up to 30 days and results can last up to 4 months! Individual results may vary.

Will I still be able to make facial expressions?

Although the results are visible, a treatment of Botox® 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 wrinkles and creases between your brows.

What will happen to the moderate to severe frown lines between my brows if I choose to not continue treatments?

If you do not continue treatments, the moderate-to-severe frown lines between your brows will gradually return to the way they looked before treatment.

Who should not take Botox®?

You should not take Botox® if you have:

  • A disease that affects your muscles and nerves
  • Allergies to any botulinum toxin product
  • Had a side effect from a botulinum toxin product in the past
  • A breathing problem
  • Swallowing problems
  • Bleeding problems
  • Plans to have surgery
  • Pregnant or plan to become pregnant
  • Breastfeeding or plan to breastfeed

It is not known if Botox® passes into breast milk.
