Many doctors have been using Botox for treating wrinkles and facial creases. It is a brand name of a toxin produced by bacterium Clostridium botulinum to smooth out frown lines between eyebrows and forehead. This treatment has been widely used for more than two decades. Botox is also used to treat migraine headaches and cerebral palsy children. It also helps to cure muscle generated dental diseases such as Temporomandibular disorders, bruxism and clenching. If you want to get rid of those radial lip lines, rely on River City Dental Clinic for Botox treatment in Fort Mcmurray. We are also proud to offer services for oral sedation and dental veneers.
How Does This Work
Botox works by weakening the injected muscles which can’t contract. For some days the toxin works to block the transmission of nerve signals which causes muscle contractions. This can be used for lip line, chin, corner of the mouth and neck.

Commonly Asked Questions
What is involved in Botox injections for wrinkles?
You must seek a professional’s help for this treatment. These injections are simple and safe if done correctly. A tiny needle is used and injected to the targeted muscle. As the fluid is injected, you might feel a slight burning sensation. No anesthetic is required and normal activities can be resumed immediately. You might be asked to avoid bending over for a few hours after the treatment.
How long will the injection last?
The duration depends on an individual’s metabolism. On an average, the effect lasts for about three-four months and eventually the muscle action returns. If you notice creases, another injection must be taken to maintain the desired result.
How long does the Botox take to work?
The results can be noticed in seven to ten days after the first treatment. If the lines are much deeper, significant smoothing is seen after a few weeks.
Who can benefit from this treatment?
Patients must be in good health with no muscle or nerve disorders which the treatment might interfere with. They must be at least 18 years of age and not breastfeeding or pregnant.
How much time does the treatment take?
Our specialists will discuss your treatment goals and perform a facial analysis to determine the appropriate areas which are to be treated. However, the injection takes around 10 minutes.
Is there a “generic” Botox Cosmetic?
It is important to understand that medical formulations, potency and approved doses vary among products and brands. If it doesn’t say Botox Cosmetic Vial, then it isn’t Botox Cosmetic.
