How Does Botox Work?
Botox Cosmetic is an injection that temporarily eliminates crows feet and frown lines.
FDA approved, Botox is a prescription injection that targets specific muscle groups. Botox contains botulinum toxin protein that relaxes muscle contractions. Botox relaxes the muscle and improves the appearance of facial lines.
Dr. Engelberg has hands on training in technique and provides natural and pleasing results. Botox can also be used to alleviate TMJ pain, bruxism and clenching.
Xeomin is a Botox alternative for the treatment of frown lines. FDA approved Xeomin temporarily freezes the muscles that cause frown lines.
Frown lines are formed as you age by the repeated use of glabellar muscles. Xeomin is designed to stop the movement of these muscles to help decrease the visibility of lines between the brow.
Treatment generally takes about 10-20 minutes and results are seen as early as 3-4 days after treatment. Most patients enjoy results for up to 3 months. After treatment, you may experience some swelling or redness at the injection site, but symptoms should decrease after 24-48 hours.
"Dr. Engelberg is a step above. I went in on a referral due to a veneer emergency. Dr. Engelberg was a complete perfectionist and painlessly fixed my tooth, it looks perfect! I highly recommend Dr. Engelberg and this practice. I have had this tooth worked on in the past, and it was far from painless. Dr. Engelberg told me he would make sure I was as comfortable as possible while he worked, and that was no joke. I did not feel a thing. He walked me through every step of the process, clearly explaining what he was doing, and why. He was meticulous with his work and made me feel comfortable throughout the process. I will be back, and hopefully not with an emergency next time! Thank you Dr. Engelberg and AH Smiles for this very positive, pain-free, comfortable experience."Annie H.

"If your're looking for a dentist, you can stop right here. I've been with this practice for 25+ years which is a great testament to the quality of their service. Every time I have my checkup, they are always kind and courteous. Pam does a great job on cleanings and is wonderful to work with. Engelberg is outstanding and very knowledgeable on current dental trends; he also as a vast array of great jokes! If they recommend getting a bite guard for protection against teeth grinding, do it. I don't know what my teeth would look like without it. THANK YOU!!"Dan F.

"This is a great office. From the moment you walk in the door into the spa-like atmosphere, you are welcomed like family. Just had a crown done by Dr. Mullarkey, which was one of the best dental experiences I have ever had. She took her time, was very patient, and virtually painless. Pam is my favorite hygienist!! Love the warm lavender towels at the end of the appointments. If you are looking for a new dentist, I highly recommend this practice!!"Linda D.
Botox Cosmetic What to Expect
During your consultation, your dentist will discuss your cosmetic goals and determine the appropriate application for optimal results. Depending on your personal goals you will receive several injections in carefully planned spots to alleviate muscle tension that causes facial lines. Dr. Engelberg is a cosmetic dentist trained by the American Academy of Facial Esthetics to offer natural looking and beautiful results.
Botox is a quick and relatively painless procedure that can be performed during your routine dental visits in about 10-15 minutes. This makes it easy to maintain your fresh, new appearance with follow up treatments. Most patients do not require an anesthetic and easily tolerate the thin needles used to strategically inject the botulinum toxin protein.
After your treatment, you may notice minor redness or swelling at the injection site which will dissipate within 24-48 hours. Results will gradually appear in the following 7-14 days. Your results can last for up to 6 months.
