Why Choose a Dentist as Your BOTOX® Provider?

BOTOX® Cosmetic is one of the most popular non-surgical treatment options for both women and men who would like to smooth away signs of aging and achieve a more youthful, refreshed appearance. It would be natural to think that injectable procedures like BOTOX® Cosmetic are primarily confined to the realm of plastic surgery offices; however, this is not the case. In fact, dentists like our very own Dr. Jarrod Cornehl offer these treatments, as well. Dr. Cornehl has completed advanced specialized BOTOX® Cosmetic and dermal filler training, and his educational background includes an intensive focus on facial anatomy. It is for these reasons and others that it can be advantageous to consider a dentist when choosing a BOTOX® Cosmetic provider. 

 

With this in mind, whomever you choose to perform your BOTOX® Cosmetic procedure, it’s important to look for providers that have the proper experience and training. Dentists such as Dr. Cornehl can be ideal choices as long as they have qualifications such as: 

Extensive Training In Facial Anatomy 

As part of their higher education, dentists intensively study the oral, perioral, and maxillofacial areas to gain a nuanced understanding of the anatomy of the mouth and the entire face from the forehead to the chin. They understand facial musculature and movement, as well as the relationships between bones, muscles, ligaments, and blood vessels. 

Extensive BOTOX® Cosmetic Training 

Although dentists have a foundation of knowledge related to facial anatomy, that doesn’t necessarily mean that their dental training alone gives them the qualifications necessary to provide BOTOX® injections. You should look for a provider who has completed additional training specific to this injectable

 

Dr. Cornehl has fully committed himself to this type of training. He has attended master level private and group training, including cadaver anatomy workshops with many elite injectors and certifying organizations in the field of aesthetic medicine.  Some of Dr. Cornehl’s extensive aesthetic education include trainings at: the American Institute of Aesthetic Medicine (AIAM), RA Academy UK, Swift Beauty, The Aesthetic Blueprint, The Los Angeles Multi-Specialty Cosmetic Academy (LA-MCA), The Aesthetic Show, International Master Course on Aging Science (IMCAS), Palette Resources, American Academy of Facial Esthetics (AAFE), and the International Academy of Facial Aesthetics (IAFA). Dr. Cornehl attends hundreds of hours of continuing education each year dedicated to safety and the most innovative and advanced aesthetic techniques. 

Extensive Experience Performing Procedures and Injections In the Facial, Perioral, and Maxillofacial Areas  

In addition to procedures focused on the teeth and gums, dentists like Dr. Cornehl routinely provide treatments that involve the jaws and other areas of the face that require an in-depth understanding of facial anatomy. This experience combined with advanced training in BOTOX® Cosmetic can give a dentist a strong base of knowledge and skill when it comes to creating results that meet patient expectations while looking as natural as possible.
