Dental Extractions in Forest Grove, OR


Botox is a neurotoxin that blocks nerve impulses to the muscles in the face that create wrinkles and fine lines. By paralyzing the muscles, the skin is smoother and less wrinkled. It has been FDA-approved since 2002 for its cosmetic use.

The botox treatment in Forest Grove, OR, is performed in the office by our dentists and usually only takes a few minutes. Patients are able to resume normal activities immediately. Results are noticeable within a few days of the treatment and can last up to six months. Many patients schedule regular visits every few months to maintain their results. 

How Botox Treatment in Forest Grove, OR, Works

The way that Botox works is quite simple. The active ingredient in the injection is botulinum toxin A. This ingredient blocks the neurotransmitters that cause muscle contractions, meaning the muscles can’t contract, and cause a wrinkle to form on the skin. When the muscles relax, the skin can smooth out and become smooth again. Wrinkles are reversed!

Many people see an improvement in their facial appearance after receiving Botox treatment in Forest Grove, OR. The treatment has a minimal recovery period with no downtime necessary. You may experience slight redness or swelling around the injection sites for several days after treatment, but these symptoms typically subside on their own quickly.
