Getting Botox Around Your Mouth? Here’s What to Expect

Botox is an increasingly popular treatment that goes beyond traditional dental care. At the office of Dr. Mitzi Morris, DMD we are proud to offer Botox injections at our Roswell office. As a dentist, Dr. Morris understands the importance of addressing cosmetic concerns like fine lines and wrinkles around the mouth while using her keen knowledge of facial anatomy. If you’re considering Botox injections to enhance your smile, here is a closer look at this procedure and how it can complement your oral health journey.

Understanding Botox Injections Around the Mouth

Botox is a well-known and FDA-approved cosmetic treatment that has been used for years to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. While it is commonly associated with treatments for forehead lines and crow’s feet, Botox around the mouth, also known as “lip flip” or “smoker’s lines treatment,” can provide excellent results in improving the overall appearance of the mouth and smile.

What to Expect After Botox Injections:

We never want our patients to be caught off-guard, and getting Botox from your dentist may not be something you are used to. Here is what you can expect:

Minimal Discomfort:

Botox injections are relatively quick and virtually painless. Most patients experience only mild discomfort, likened to a tiny pinprick. If you are concerned about pain, your dentist can apply a topical numbing cream to the treatment area to enhance your comfort.

Temporary Redness and Swelling:

After the procedure, you may notice some redness, swelling, or slight bruising around the injection sites. These side effects are generally mild and should subside within a few hours to a couple of days. Applying a cold compress can help reduce any swelling.

Quick Recovery:

One of the major benefits of Botox treatments is that they require minimal downtime. You can typically resume your daily activities immediately after the procedure. However, it’s advisable to avoid strenuous physical activities, alcohol consumption, and excessive sun exposure on the day of the treatment.

Gradual Results:

While some patients may notice improvements immediately, the full effects of Botox injections around the mouth usually become apparent within 7 to 14 days. Your dentist will provide post-treatment instructions to help optimize the results.

Natural-Looking Smile Enhancements:

When administered by an experienced and skilled dentist, Botox injections around the mouth can produce natural-looking results. Your smile will appear more youthful, with diminished fine lines and improved lip definition.

Long-Lasting Results:

The effects of Botox typically last between 3 to 6 months. As the muscles gradually regain their activity, you may consider follow-up treatments to maintain the results.

4.8/ 5.0

Based on 44 reviews

  • Dr. Morris is an excellent dentist. Her ability to relate to her patients makes her a stand-out amongst those in her profession. She practices dentistry with superior technique and care. Her staff is friendly, helpful, and accommodating. I feel she hires only the best! One special mention: I suffer from panic attacks at times- along with claustrophobia. Dr. Morris is the first dentist I have ever had who helped calm my fears. Thus, my experience exceeded expectations! Great service!

  • Definitely would recommend Dr. Morris to anyone. She has been my dentist for over 8 years! Dr. Morris is extremely personable and is serious about the completing the best care possible. Great established dental team! Very accommodating to your schedule.

  • Great and very educational experience. Compared to my last two dentists this experience blows them both out of the water. The staff is very friendly, and very helpful. I had to go in for a total of four visits a few weeks apart from each other. They made me feel very comfortable the entire time and kept making sure I was pleased. Getting a deep cleaning went very smoothly. It was also brought to my attention that the way I was flossing was incorrect. And have since changed methods. I worked specifically with Dr. Morris. She was very nice, and took the time to explain things. Which is a huge plus for me. Dr. Morris and the staff members worked effortlessly together. I was comfortable enough to sit back and relax, strangely enough, while having cavities drilled and fillings put in. Billing and scheduling appointments, as well as follow up for confirmation of upcoming appointments was very easy. I will say my favorite part of the experience was how friendly of an environment the staff has created. That alone is deserving of a 5 star review, and the rest is honestly icing on the cake. I highly recommend this practice on all fronts and will continue using them!

  • I transferred from a long-term and very good relationship with my former dentist because of a move, and I was a little apprehensive about a new dentist. Dr. Morris has been great. She is friendly, patient-concerned and the office is new, comfortable and clean. Everyone seems to enjoy working there. I feel like I'm in good hands!

    Christopher P
  • Dr. Morris and her staff are very professional. Additionally, she as well as her staff have an excellent "bedside manner." The office is new and well equipped. If one has an appointment and an earlier one opens up, Dr. Morris offers it to her patients as she did with my last appointment.

    David G
  • I have never met a staff so nice and charming. This staff will make you feel comfortable and relaxed in Dr. Morris's Spa like office and everyone is professional and approachable too. Andrea R. explained the process of my appointment and procedures and is definitely a highly-educated and thorough dental hygenist -- SHE IS A ROCKSTAR. I'm so glad that Dr. Morris and her dental team have been my "go-to" for the last 5 years, and I wont be going anywhere else! Overall - A++ Dr. Morris...highly recommended to my family and friends!!!

  • I've been a patient of Dr. Mitzi Morris for many years, and recommend her without reservation. The office is modern. clean and spacious. The staff has always been welcoming and very helpful. And the women who work for her as dental technicians are fantastic; they do a professional and effective deep cleaning, but with a careful, gentle touch. It is clear to me that Dr. Morris reads her professional journals and upgrades her practice to stay very current with the latest best practices in dentistry. (I have had some dentists who stopped updating their practices after leaving dental school!) With Dr. Morris you can count on receiving the very latest dental technology. Her prices are very fair, and I have never been surprised by an unexpected cost or had problems with insurance not covering services rendered.

    Bruce C
  • I have never experienced an office so down to earth, so outgoing and so willing to satisfy. If you've grown to dread the dentist then lay down your sword and give this office a shot.
