Botox  Dentist in Glasgow, KY

At Drs. Thurman, Welborn, and Cassady we believe that a youthful look begins with a healthy smile, however, we know that it doesn't end there. That is why we are pleased to offer Botox© 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.

Botox© is a safe, effective, proven method of smoothing out wrinkles in the forehead, around the eyes, and mouth. It is injected into muscles that over time cause skin to wrinkle, and once this muscle activity is reduced, skin overlying the muscles is allowed to regain a smoother, more youthful look. There are many misconceptions about Botox©. First of all, Botox© is not a poison, but a protein created by a bacteria. There are no live bacteria in Botox©. Botox© works by reducing muscle activity. Secondly, this action is not permanent, but typically lasts three to four months, at which time the patient may elect to retreat with Botox©.

Dr. Cassady has completed  training from the American Academy of Facial Esthetics in esthetic improvements and is pleased to offer Botox as an additional service to our patients. This provides the convenience of getting regular BOTOX treatment during your routine dental hygiene visit, and is great for those who are curious but can’t get themselves to a cosmetic surgeon’s office. In as little as one visit, Dr. Cassady can erase lines and wrinkles from around the mouth, ease pesky crow’s feet, and minimize stress lines on your forehead. BOTOX is also very useful in easing the pain from TMJ (temporal mandibular joint) disorders and relief from migraines and various other dentally related headaches.
