There are a variety of treatment options for people who want to improve their smile. Most of these involve work done to the teeth or even the gums. But having vibrant, healthier-looking skin also contributes to a great smile. At Brandon Burger, DDS, we offer BOTOX® injection to help rejuvenate the look of facial skin.

BOTOX is a substance produced by the Clostridium botulinum bacterium. When injected in the skin, it helps reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. It is most effective on wrinkles that are not fully established, or those that only appear when your face moves.

BOTOX works by blocking signals that nerves send to muscles. When these signals are blocked, muscles can’t contract, and wrinkles relax and become softer. Dr. Brandon Burger will skillfully inject the BOTOX into specific areas with a very fine needle. It is a quick procedure that causes very little discomfort and requires no recovery. You can come in during your lunch break and be back in time for that big sales meeting. Full effect typically takes several days, but each injection lasts for several months.

In addition to its cosmetic benefits, BOTOX also has some real health applications. For example, it is considered an effective alternative treatment for migraines in some people. It can also be used to decrease excessive sweating.

We invite you to call our Hermitage, TN, office at 615-889-8202 if you have any questions about BOTOX injection. Dr. Brandon Burger and the entire team at Brandon Burger, DDS are committed to your entire smile. We look forward to helping you reach all of your dental goals.
