Put Your Best Face Forward This Year With Botox®

Botox® is gaining in popularity. In fact, since 2013 alone, The American Academy of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery has found a 22% uptick in Botox injections since 2013 alone. 

With the numerous and versatile benefits of Botox, you can see why Dr. Jennifer Sunkin and her team at Hudson River Dental Arts are thrilled to provide you with the benefits of Botox.

Botox really keeps you young

Botox is simply amazing! It doesn’t just treat current wrinkles and creases. It also provides an excellent preventive measure when it comes to future aging. Botox does a wonderful job of keeping your face youthful and keeping future wrinkles from creeping up. 

And, while it’s a common myth that Botox freezes your face, this is actually untrue. Botox simply works by preventing certain muscles from pulling at your skin and leading to signs of aging, such as fine lines, crow’s feet, and wrinkles. 

Botox promotes health and wellness

You already know how great Botox is for cosmetic purposes, but did you know that Botox actually has some amazing health benefits? Botox is the number one most prescribed method for treating and preventing migraines. It also effectively fixes other conditions like jaw clenching, excess sweating, and teeth grinding (bruxism). 

Botox is safe and effective

Botox has become wildly popular for a couple of reasons: it’s safe, and it’s pretty effective. Botox is FDA-approved. And if you’re concerned about having to do frequent treatments, that won’t be the case. The youthful effects of botox are long-lasting. Each injection is good for about three or four months. So, you’re not going to need more than a few appointments a year.     

Getting ready for your Botox appointment

Dr. Sunkin will want to discuss your full medical history. Every detail is important. She’ll also want a full list of any medications that you may be on. We may advise you to temporarily stop taking certain medications, such as:

Also, if you are a smoker, you will need to stop smoking for just a few days before your appointment. It’s incredibly important that you follow this rule because smoking increases your risk of bruising and bleeding when it comes to injections. Of course, quitting smoking altogether will help your health and appearance. 

You also want to make sure to reduce your stress right before your appointment. Be sure to relax and take it easy as much as you possibly can. Equally important, be cautious about working out. You’ll need to wait at least four hours after your treatment to do any physical activity.


You don’t need to wait any longer to turn back the clock. Get tight, youthful skin with Botox, and call us to book an appointment right on our website today.
