When you were younger, did you ever look at aging adults and think, “Man, I hope I never have wrinkles like that”? Fast forward a few decades and now you find yourself looking in the mirror and seeing those same wrinkles. How did that happen? Weren’t you supposed to be invincible against wrinkles and creases that make you look 10 years older than you really are?

Aging is a part of life, and with it brings a host of unwanted changes in your body’s appearance and ability to function. Your facial skin is no exception. Time, gravity, sun exposure and lifestyle habits cause your skin to lose its youthful firmness and volume, replacing it with droopy eyelids, deep wrinkles and sagging skin. At Spartan Family Dentistry, however, we have a secret weapon to reduce the signs of aging.

That secret weapon is BOTOX®, the time-tested injectable that seemingly reverses the common signs of aging. How does it work, you ask? Simple. It starts with a visit to our Bixby family dentistry practice. Dr. Martin Trockel can talk with you about the areas on your face that you feel most self-conscious about. Perhaps you’ve developed deep lines on your forehead from furrowing your brow at your children too many times. Maybe you have noticeable crow’s feet that show signs of an expressive life. Whatever the case, our dentists can help you know if BOTOX is right for you.

Your BOTOX treatment is short and sweet. There are no cuts, no stitches and no surgery. All our dentists will do is inject the BOTOX serum into the targeted area. Some people are completely fine with our dentists going straight into the injection. If that’s not you, we can always ice or numb the area first to make you more comfortable. Once the BOTOX is injected, it can start working its magic.

BOTOX is a neurotoxin, but don’t let that scare you off. When used in small doses and injected by a trained professional, like our dentists, it is completely safe. With its neurotoxin abilities, BOTOX works by blocking signals to the facial muscles, essentially making the injected area freeze. But don’t worry; your face won’t look frozen. Instead, the lack of muscle movement will make your wrinkles and lines soften and become less noticeable.

If you’re tired of looking tired and older than you really are, it’s time to reign in your aging skin. Treating your facial skin with BOTOX in Bixby, Oklahoma, is as simple as calling our office at .
