That’s right! Our Pittsburgh dentist can improve your smile and your appearance right here in our office.

When you think of getting Botox treatments in Pittsburgh, PA you may not originally think about going to the dentist. In fact, you may only botoxpicture visiting a dermatologist, but think about it: who has received more advanced medical training in the oral and maxillofacial areas than a dentist? We live and breathe that world every day and our Pittsburgh dentist, Dr. John Sartorio, is happy to provide this wrinkle-smoothing treatment to his patients to give them the more youthful glow they want.

What is Botox?

Botox is made from a purified form of botulinum toxin that when injected into the muscles of the skin it temporarily paralyzes them and keeps them from contracting. Of course, you’ve seen comedies where the actress gets Botox and can’t make expressions, but rest assured that Botox won’t make you look like an expressionless robot. You’ll still be able to convey all the emotions you feel just with a less wrinkled look.

What issues can Botox address?

Botox is great for smoothing away lines and wrinkles that appear when you smile, yawn or make other expressions. Botox is ideal for frown lines, forehead wrinkles, crow’s feet and lines around the chin and mouth.

When do results should up? How long do they last?

It’s important to note that you won’t walk right out of our office with immediate results. It usually takes at least a few days to notice results, with full results showing up within a week. Unfortunately, Botox results are not permanent, but they can last between three to four months.

Can I get more Botox in the future?

If you love your results and only wish that they would last longer then you are in luck. You can continue to visit our Pittsburgh dental office every few months to get follow-up treatments to maintain your results.

If you want to find out more about Botox and whether it could help you achieve your aesthetic goals then it’s time to call Dr. Sartorio in Pittsburgh, PA to schedule your consultation. Botox only takes a few minutes and there is no downtime. Get a more youthful appearance today!
