Dr. Schoenbeck has been trained and certified by the Pacific Training Institute for Facial Esthetics to administer Botox® therapy. Dr. Schoenbeck’s medical training, expertise in Cosmetic Dentistry and familiarity with the anatomy of the face and neck made providing Botox injections a practical and natural solution for patients who wanted their face to match their new smiles – youthful, fresh, beautiful. NCD is now one of only approximately 16% of dentists in the U.S. who offer this treatment for both cosmetic and TMJ/Migraine therapy. Dr. Schoenbeck is dedicated to bringing the North Country the best, most advanced dentistry and non-invasive cosmetic treatments to enhance dental restorations and other cosmetic dental work. Ask us about our cosmetic services and which one is right for you.

Why is NCD offering Botox®?

Many of our patients have asked about Botox therapy. They wanted extended cosmetic services to enhance their new smiles. And it made perfect sense. As a Doctor of Dental Medicine, Dr. Schoenbeck has been specially trained and works every day with the anatomy of the face and neck. Who better to trust than your dentist? In fact, dentists are more focused on the face and neck areas and regularly give more injections on a daily basis than other medical doctors. Practice makes perfect! You can be sure your experience will be comfortable and safe.

Botox therapy is also used for relieving the pain of migraines and TMJ (Temporomandibular joint disorders or tightening of the jaw), as well as reducing or eliminating acne scars and excessive sweating!

Another good reason to get Botox services at NCD is that it’s very discreet. Walking out of a Med Spa can be a sure give-away, especially when you start looking younger! But we all go to the dentist. So while you’re having your dental work done, you can have a little “other” cosmetic enhancement and no one will be the wiser. In fact, if you are considering cosmetic dentistry, Botox® treatments are recommended before you have the dental work done. Why? Using Botox® allows the dentist to perfect your smile by precisely placing your lip line with your teeth to give you the best smile.

Does Botox® work?

We all age. And as we do, we get wrinkles. Man or woman, a lifetime of frowning, laughing, just plain living causes wrinkles and expression lines to multiply and deepen. You end up looking tired, sad, worn out, or angry. In fact, you may feel ten years younger than the way you look! Botox is a purified protein that relaxes wrinkle-causing muscles. Botox helps minimize and reduce age-related concerns like

  • wrinkles
  • “the elevens” (frown lines)
  •  crow’s feet
  • forehead lines
  • neck lines
  • jowls
  • nasolabial folds

We can even correct a crooked smile or a smile that shows too much gum line! Your appearance will remain perfectly natural and you will always look like you.
Are the treatments uncomfortable?

Botox injections are quick and produce very little discomfort. Botox is injected with an extremely fine needle. Injections are so quick, most people say they hardly feel them at all. Also, you probably won’t need a pain reliever after treatment but if you do, a simple over-the-counter product will work just fine. Of course, discomfort levels during treatment vary from person to person. Some people say they barely notice the injections. Others say it feels like a slight pin prick. The particular area of the face being treated will make a difference, too. Typically, treating the forehead (furrows and worry lines) and crow’s feet are reported to be the easiest. No matter where your particular “area of concern” is, Dr. Schoenbeck is known to be gentle and caring and will make sure you are at your most comfortable at all times.

Eliminate excessive sweating with Botox!

No more embarrassing stains or situations!  Stay cool, calm and relaxed.  Wear your favorite clothes!  Anytime, anywhere.  Botox eliminates excessive sweating, almost instantly.  Results are long lasting.

Excessive sweating can occur from hormonal changes, glandular problems or it can be hereditary.  The problem area – the underarm, for example – is dusted with a special powder that turns black as you begin to perspire.  Botox is injected only to those specific areas so it is extremely targeted.  Sweating is eliminated in 1 to 2 days.

Isn’t it bad for your health to not sweat?

Your body needs to keep cool through perspiring.  However, your body perspires all over and continues to perspire adequately, even if you stop underarm sweating.

I’ve heard Botox “freezes” your face. Will I still be able to make facial expressions?

Many people have heard about Botox “freezing” the face so you are expressionless. Nothing could be farther from the truth. Botox is a purified protein that relaxes wrinkle causing muscles. In the hands of a trained and certified professional like Dr. Schoenbeck, Botox is safe. You will still be able to frown, smile, laugh, or look surprised. Just without the wrinkles and creases. Again, Botox is a purified protein that relaxes wrinkle-causing muscles. When injected into areas such as frown lines, it relaxes the muscles just enough to create a smoother appearance. You will still look like you, only fresher, more rested, younger looking.

How long does it take to see the results?

Initial results are typically seen in two to three days. Full results are seen in approximately two weeks. Individual results may vary.

Does Botox work for men?

Yes! More men every day are starting to use Botox to look younger and more vigorous. What works for women works just as well for men! Looking rugged is one thing – wrinkled and old is another. Botox gives the guys a chance to look younger, longer and why not? Men are discovering what women have known for quite a while now: If you feel 10 years younger than your age, you can look it, too. It’s easy with Botox. Your NCD Botox Certified dentist will explain what you can expect from your Botox treatments.

What Botox won’t do

Botox relaxes wrinkle-causing muscles. This allows wrinkles and expression lines to smooth out. The result can take years off your appearance. However, Botox cannot tighten loose skin or plump up the skin. Some people experience a tightened appearance to the upper eyelids with Botox but this is due to brow muscles relaxing rather than truly tightening the skin. There are cosmetic fillers and laser treatments that accomplish this and some people use them in conjunction with Botox treatments to get the overall look they want. See your dermatologist for more information on these products and treatments.
