On March 22-26th Dr. Patel and his two hygienists, Shaughn and Caroline, flew to Vancouver, British Columbia for a training course in Botox Cosmetic. While there, they became proficient in botulinum toxin type A, also known as Botox and the PTIFA technique. Dr. Patel learned techniques from the biggest buyer and user of Botox in North America. Shaughn and Caroline spent the days learning from the staff and perfecting the photographs needed to properly administer Botox to our patients.
So what is Botox? Botox Cosmetic is a naturally purified protein that relaxes wrinkle causing muscles, creating a smoother and improved appearance. We use tiny needles to barely go under the skin to inject around the muscles. The procedure lasts anywhere from 10-15 minutes, with your first appointment being about an hour long. We take a series of photographs and you will consult with Dr. Patel to talk about what you would like to fix and get his opinion. Most people start to notice results within a few days but it takes two weeks to see the full effect. Results last anywhere from 3-4 months depending on the patient.
We are so excited to offer this service to our patients! Call 615-797-8003 or visit our website at www.nashvilledentistryco.com to make your appointment today!
