Over the years, the repeated muscle contractions of frowning, squinting, and everyday use of our facial muscles accumulates and leaves patients with fine lines or moderate to severe wrinkles. BOTOX® is a safe and effective treatment to improve and smooth these lines and wrinkles. BOTOX not only has a place in improving esthetics of the face, but can aid in a number of dental related conditions, such as TMD and bruxism. A full list of treatments includes:
– Most facial lines and wrinkles
– TMD with and without facial pain
– Gummy smile
– Crow’s feet
– Frown lines
– Sagging of the brow (Mini brow lift)
BOTOX® (onabotulinumtoxinA) is a medication that is injected into the muscles of the brow to smooth frown lines between the brows and crow’s feet. In fact, BOTOX is the only approved treatment to temporarily improve the appearance of moderate to severe frown lines and crow’s feet lines. BOTOX can help you to look younger, calmer, and more alert. Our doctor may recommend BOTOX as a great choice to help you regain a more youthful appearance and boost your self-confidence.
BOTOX can also be used for a number of other purposes. Based on your specific needs, we may suggest BOTOX to reduce migraine headaches, lessen excessive sweating, or treat a TMJ disorder.
BOTOX involves no incisions, stitches, or surgery, so you can resume your daily routine directly following your appointment. This also means that your treatment will be comfortable and fast. Our team will simply inject the medication into the muscles. We may use ice or a topical numbing cream before the treatment to ensure that you feel completely comfortable. You may begin noticing results as soon as 24 to 48 hours after the treatment, and your BOTOX results can last up to four months.
