botox injections (2)

To maintain youthful-looking skin, daily cleansing, and moisturizing are not always enough. As we age, our skin loses elasticity, resulting in fine lines and wrinkles. Even with a consistent skincare routine, volume loss, and creases can make us look older than we feel.

Thankfully, cosmetic dentist Marielaina Perrone DDS offers several minimally invasive procedures to combat these signs of aging. Botox injections can enhance the effects of your regular beauty regimen, and Dr. Perrone can create a custom plan using Botox injections to prevent premature aging and keep your skin smooth, plump, and free of creases.

Proactive Skin Care for Aging Skin

As we age, the signs of aging become more prominent, particularly around the eyes and brow area. Crow's feet, the fine lines around the eyes, and deep-set wrinkles on the forehead and between the eyebrows can make you look tired and older than you are. These signs can also affect your self-confidence and how you perceive yourself.

To stay proactive about your skin's health, it is important to start anti-aging treatments as early as your 30s. This is because collagen production slows down, and skin loses its youthful glow over time. Anti-aging treatments such as Botox injections can help prevent premature signs of aging, keeping your skin plump, smooth, and crease-free. With a custom plan developed by a cosmetic dentist such as Marielaina Perrone DDS, you can maintain healthy, youthful-looking skin for years to come.


How Botox injections delay the signs of aging

Botox injections offer an effective solution for delaying the signs of aging. Botox is a purified bacterium that paralyzes the muscles responsible for wrinkles, such as frown lines and crow's feet. By blocking the nerve signals that cause muscle contractions, Botox helps to relax the muscles, resulting in a smoother and more youthful appearance.

Botox injections can even reduce the appearance of deep-set wrinkles and creases. The effects of Botox typically last several months, making it an excellent option for maintaining a fresh, vibrant appearance.

Dr. Marielaina Perrone DDS creates customized treatment plans that target specific areas of concern. Her expert technique ensures that treatments are safe, comfortable, and natural-looking.

The Importance of Combining Botox Injections with a Regular Beauty Routine

Maintaining healthy, youthful-looking skin requires more than just regular Botox injections. To maximize the benefits of Botox treatment, it is important to incorporate a daily beauty routine that protects and nourishes your skin.

Here are some tips that you can include in your daily routine to enhance the effects of Botox and keep your skin healthy:

Eating a healthy diet: A balanced diet rich in antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals can help to nourish your skin from the inside out.

Staying physically active: Exercise improves blood flow and helps to deliver nutrients and oxygen to your skin cells, promoting healthy skin.

Removing makeup before going to bed: Sleeping with makeup can clog pores and lead to breakouts, so it is important to remove all makeup before going to bed.

Using a gentle facial cleanser daily: Regular cleansing can help to remove dirt and impurities that can accumulate on your skin throughout the day, leaving it looking fresh and rejuvenated.

Sun protection: UV rays from the sun can cause premature aging and damage to your skin. Using a broad-spectrum sunscreen with an SPF of 30 or higher can help to protect your skin from sun damage.

By incorporating these tips into your daily routine, you can enhance the results of your Botox treatment and keep your skin looking healthy and youthful.

Botox Cosmetic is a neurotoxin that originates from the bacterium Clostridium botulinum. Although this toxin is infamous for causing botulism, a type of food poisoning, it has several medical applications when used under controlled dosing. Botox Cosmetic acts by weakening or paralyzing specific muscles or blocking the pathway of certain nerves.

Medical Uses

Botox Cosmetic is commonly used in small doses in the medical community to treat various conditions such as:

  • Temporarily smoothing facial wrinkles caused by muscle contractions.

  • Controlling overactive underarm sweating.

  • Managing cervical dystonia, a neurological disorder that causes severe shoulder and neck contractions.

  • Treating uncontrolled blinking of eyes (blepharospasm).

  • Addressing overactive bladder.

  • Correcting misaligned eyes (strabismus).

  • Managing chronic migraine headaches.


Botox Cosmetic is administered through fine gauge needles directly into the neuromuscular tissues. It usually takes just a few minutes and does not require local anesthesia. Results are typically noticeable 3-7 days after the treatment. However, pregnant or lactating women and individuals who have had a previous allergic reaction to Botox Cosmetic should not receive treatment.

Dental Uses

Botox Cosmetic can also be used by dentists for various cosmetic and functional dental issues, including:

  • Softening facial lines and wrinkles such as crow's feet, forehead furrows, frown lines, lip lines, and bunny lines.

  • Reducing neck bands.

  • Relieving pain from headaches caused by tension in muscles in the head, face, and neck.

  • Addressing relapse of teeth following orthodontic treatment completion caused by an overactive mentalis muscle.

  • Improving the appearance of skin dimpling of the chin.

  • Reducing pain from headaches due to occlusal (bite) issues.

  • Reducing bruxism, a condition that involves grinding and clenching of teeth.

  • Lifting the corners of the mouth.

  • Softening a square jawline.

  • Correcting a gummy smile due to over-retracted upper lips.


Dentists are ideal practitioners for delivering Botox in the head and neck region as they receive advanced training in oral and maxillofacial areas. When selecting a dentist for Botox Cosmetic, look for one with proper certification and insurance. The certification should include at least 16 hours of live hands-on patient training.
