BOTOX

When you look in the mirror, are you noticing more wrinkles and fine lines around your brows, eyelids, and other areas on your face?

BOTOX Cosmetic can be used to reduce the appearance of these wrinkles and give your skin a smoother, more youthful look.

Oral surgeon Dustin Hopkin can expertly apply BOTOX in his Salt Lake City, UT, office to reduce wrinkles and boost your confidence.

What Is BOTOX? A Safe, Injectable Form
of Botulinum Toxin

/

Botulinum toxin is a neurotoxin. After it is sterilized and diluted, it is completely safe for cosmetic and medical use. Dr. Hopkin injects the botulinum toxin into specific areas to block nerve signals, which relaxes the muscles that cause wrinkles around the eyes, mouth, and jaw.

Common Areas Treated With BOTOX Cosmetic

Our dental practice serving patients across Northern Utah can provide you with BOTOX injections in just one area of the face or fine-tune a few areas in the same appointment.

Why BOTOX Treatment IS POPULAR FOR REDUCING WRINKLES

BOTOX and other brands of injectables like Xeomin®, and Dysport® continue to be the most popular cosmetic procedures in the United States each year. BOTOX, Xeomin, and Dysport contain the same active ingredient (botulinum toxin), so the effects of each are similar. We use BOTOX in our Salt Lake City, UT, office because it is considered the most established and trusted brand. Below are four reasons why botulinum toxin injections remain so popular throughout Utah and the United States:

Long-Lasting Results

Once BOTOX causes muscles to relax, you will see results in as soon as a few days to a couple of weeks. The results can last up to six months before another session needs to be scheduled with Dr. Hopkin.

Calendar

Short Appointment Time

Depending on your goals, your BOTOX appointment could last around 10 minutes. You could pop in during your lunch break, get treated, and still eat lunch before going back to work.

No Recovery Period

Since this is not a surgical procedure, you can return to normal non-strenuous activities as soon as your appointment is done.

Few Side Effects

Minor side effects like soreness or redness at the injection sites may occur but should vanish in a day or two.

Am I a Good Candidate For BOTOX Cosmetic?

Most people who suffer from fine lines and wrinkles around their eyes, mouth, forehead, and jaw are good candidates for BOTOX Cosmetic; however, some factors do affect your candidacy, such as:

Your Expectations

While you will see the results of BOTOX Cosmetic almost immediately, it is important to keep in mind that it is not permanent, and you will need ongoing re-treatment to maintain your results. Likewise, if the wrinkles are too severe, BOTOX Cosmetic may not be enough to achieve your desired results. Talking with your doctor before BOTOX treatment is the best way to ensure your expectations are aligned with what BOTOX can provide.

Your Health

Your skin must be healthy around the injection site. If you are fighting an infection, or if you have a cut or bruising around your face, your doctor will require you to wait until that infection or injury is healed before administering the injections. You should also be in good overall health to undergo this treatment. Patients suffering from any previous nerve damage or muscle conditions may not be good candidates for BOTOX Cosmetic.

Allergies

During your consultation, your doctor will make sure you are not allergic to any of the ingredients in the injector. If you are allergic to eggs, BOTOX Cosmetic is not a viable treatment option for you as the protein found in eggs is the same protein used in the BOTOX injections. It is important to disclose any allergies to your doctor during your consultation to avoid any complications. Call our office right away if you experience an allergic reaction after treatment. 

What to Expect On the Day of Treatment

BOTOX Cosmetic is considered a "lunch break procedure" since you can come in on your lunch break and be back to work immediately after.

The first step is to talk with Dr. Hopkin so he can create a treatment plan that best suits your needs.

Preparing for Your Treatment

In the days leading up to your BOTOX Cosmetic treatment, Dr. Hopkin will advise you to avoid drinking alcohol, smoking, or using anti-inflammatory drugs. This will reduce your risk of bruising and swelling after the procedure.

The Injections

When you come in for your injections, Dr. Hopkin will know exactly where to put the botulinum toxin to give the most effective results. The injector uses a very fine needle, making the treatment virtually pain-free. Some patients report it feels like a slight pinch. 

Back to Work

The entire process only takes a few minutes, and you can resume your daily activities immediately after; however, any strenuous activity is not recommended because it can cause the botulinum toxin to move outside the treatment areas.

See Your Results

The time it takes to see your results depends on if this is your first time getting BOTOX Cosmetic. Most people can see the results within a few days and will have the effects last between four and six months.

Potential Side Effects

BOTOX Cosmetic is one of the most performed cosmetic procedures each year. Even though it is considered safe and effective, there are always risks involved in any medical treatment. Most common side effects will go away within a few days.

Common Side Effects

  • Bruising or swelling near the injection sites
  • Nausea
  • Facial Drooping
  • Eyelid drooping
  • Crooked brow

When to Call Your Doctor

  • Blurred vision
  • Difficulty breathing, swallowing, or speaking
  • Muscle weakness outside the injection site
  • Muscle paralysis outside the injection site
  • Loss of bladder control

Aftercare

To reduce your risk of side effects, Dr. Hopkin will give you instructions on things to avoid immediately following your procedure. 

Avoid Exercise

Any strenuous activity should be avoided for up to 24 hours following your procedure. Exercise increases circulation which can increase your risk for bruising and swelling.

Do Not Touch Your Face

Do not touch, poke, or massage your face up to 24 hours following your BOTOX injections. Touching your face can cause the botulinum toxin to move outside the injection site and compromise the effectiveness of your treatment.

Do Not Lie Down

Try to remain in an upright position for at least four hours immediately following your procedure. Lying down can also cause the toxin to move outside the treatment area.

Avoid Alcohol

It is recommended to avoid alcohol for at least 24 hours before and following your BOTOX treatment. Alcohol is a blood thinner, which can increase your chances of bruising and swelling. 

Have Confidence

When You Look in the Mirror

Fine lines and wrinkles can make us feel older than we are, which can leave us lacking in confidence. Dr. Hopkin expertly uses BOTOX at his state-of-the-art Salt Lake City practice to reduce your wrinkles so you can get your confidence back almost immediately. For more severe cases, Dr. Hopkin also offers JUVÉDERM®, an injectable gel, to fill deep lines and wrinkles throughout the face. Don't waste another minute being unhappy with the way you look. Request an appointment online or call our Salt Lake City, UT, office to schedule your BOTOX Cosmetic consultation.

Why Should I Receive Injectables at a Dental Practice?

Most patients would expect BOTOX Cosmetic and dermal filler injections to be administered solely at a plastic surgeon's office; however, injectables are becoming more available at dental offices around the country. As an oral surgeon who has undergone the necessary training to administer BOTOX Cosmetic and dermal fillers, Dr. Hopkin is just as qualified as any other medical professional. He is confident he can deliver results that will make his patients happy.

Try JUVÉDERM Fillers Available at Our Utah Office

Smiling woman with JUVÉDERM

If you're not a good candidate for botulinum toxin injections like BOTOX Cosmetic and Dysport, ask our oral surgeon about JUVÉDERM injections. Unlike botulinum toxin injections that block nerve signals, this filler adds volume to hollowed areas of the face and smooths wrinkles to rejuvenate your appearance.

JUVÉDERM is mainly made of hyaluronic acid, a water-absorbing molecule that is produced naturally in the body. As we age, our bodies produce less hyaluronic acid, leading to wrinkles, lines, and other signs of aging. Injecting JUVÉDERM filler can smooth fine lines around your eyelids, mouth, and other areas of your face.

Before receiving injections from Dr. Hopkin, be sure to discuss your goals and any serious medical conditions. Fillers are minimally invasive, but a medical condition that inhibits your ability to heal could cause complications.

Interested in Fillers or BOTOX?

Our Salt Lake City, UT, Office Can Help You Achieve Your Goals

Botulinum toxin and dermal fillers have their own unique strengths, and Dr. Dustin Hopkin can explain them all to you during a consultation. You can share your cosmetic concerns and goals with him, and he can determine if you could benefit from treatment. We may even be able to combine BOTOX Cosmetic and JUVÉDERM for more comprehensive results.
