PORT JERVIS, N.Y. (April 12, 2017)— Aesthetic Family Dentistry is excited to announce that Dr. Seth Horn is now certified by The American Academy of Facial Esthetics (AAFE) to administer Botox as a cosmetic treatment for the forehead, bridge of nose, outer eye area, and the area around the upper and lower lips.
“Botox is becoming ever more prevalent in practices outside the realm of cosmetic surgery,” said Dr. Horn. “Dentists are uniquely qualified to perform these procedures because of our experience with injections and our extensive knowledge of the muscular anatomy of the face.”
Botox is a purified protein that, in cosmetic uses, is injected into specific facial muscles to smooth out the appearance of wrinkles. While only plastic surgeons originally administered it, it’s becoming more common for other medical professionals—such as dentists—to provide the treatment.
Botox is a quick procedure. The injection process generally takes about 10 minutes. Often referred to as a “lunchtime procedure,” you’ll be able to go about your normal routine immediately after leaving the office. It usually takes three to seven days for the effects to be noticeable, and the results typically last between three and four months.
The American Academy of Facial Esthetics (AAFE) is a multidisciplinary professional healthcare organization whose mission is teaching the best non-surgical and non-invasive facial injectable techniques to healthcare professionals worldwide. The AAFE is an umbrella organization comprised of physicians, dentists, nurses and other healthcare professionals committed to providing the best possible outcomes in areas of facial esthetics and facial pain treatment.
Aesthetic Family Dentistry specializes in family and cosmetic dentistry with three main ideals in mind: pride, honesty, and quality of work. They provide each patient with the same level of care they would want for their own family. Dr. Horn, and his warm, friendly, helpful staff, works together with one priority in mind: their patients.
