Botox in Pottstown, PA

Botox cosmetics are an excellent resource to compliment your new smile makeover or address bothersome creases in your skin. When applied by someone who understands the complexities of facial anatomy, like our Pottstown cosmetic dentist, you can expect great results and a comfortable experience. 

How Does Botox Work?

Many of the wrinkles and fine lines across our forehead, eyes, and cheeks are caused by continued muscle tension, causing those areas to crease. Botox is a natural muscle relaxer helping ease tension in tight facial muscles to create a smoother skin surface. It not only helps address the source of fine lines and wrinkles but delays the development of new or worse ones in those areas. 


Botox can last for up to six months or longer, with each subsequent touch-up typically lasting a little more than the previous one. It can take a few days after your first Botox treatment to begin seeing results, as the medication gradually takes effect over time rather than instantly. 

Alternative Therapies for Botox

Because of the natural muscle relaxation that occurs with Botox applications, some people also find it useful for managing issues related to migraine headaches, bruxism (clenching and grinding,) TMJ disorder, jaw pain, and “gummy” smiles.

Botox can also be used in conjunction with other therapies to manage chronic pain or cosmetic concerns. 

Why Choose a Dentist for Botox?

Many Botox providers work with the body as a whole, such as your general physician’s office, dermatologist, or even your nurse practitioner. But a dentist is one of the only healthcare professionals who focus all of their care on your face, head, and neck. As such, providers like Dr. Zitter have an impeccable understanding of your facial tissues, muscles, joints, and how they perform.


Providing Botox in our practice is a natural service to complement our existing aesthetic treatments as well as those related to oral habits like bruxism. And given that we use injectable medications safely every day, Dr. Zitter is a clear choice to gently administer your Botox cosmetics.
