BOTOX® is a naturally purified protein (Botulinum Toxin A) that is used to relax muscles. You may have heard of it used as an effective and safe anti-aging treatment. At our clinic, we use Botox to reduce facial wrinkles, but also to treat muscle-related facial discomfort and migraines.
When injected, Botox blocks neurotransmitters between muscles’ motor nerves so the muscles can’t contract. And since it doesn’t act on the muscles directly, it doesn’t cause a loss of sensation within the muscle.
When you come in for Botox treatment, we’ll customize a treatment plan just for you. We’ll consider your unique facial anatomy and musculature to ensure your appearance and facial expression always remain natural after treatment. We also offer numbing cream or ice prior to treatment, so you’ll have the most comfortable experience possible.
The procedure itself is quick and simple, taking just 5-10 minutes with a dentist who has received extensive training.
If you are getting Botox to smooth wrinkles, you will see results in 3-10 days.
Our patients who use Botox for cosmetic rejuvenation are pleased to find that they look noticeably younger after their treatment. You can target unwanted wrinkles, such as frown lines, forehead lines, and crow’s feet and see results just days later!
Botox can also be used to treat discomfort from TMJ issues, clenching and grinding, and it works to alleviate headache pain. By preventing the muscles in the head and neck from contracting, many patients with these troublesome conditions are able to finally find relief.
The effects of Botox, whether cosmetic or therapeutic, last 3-4 months.
We can assure you the safety of Botox has been well established and supported by medical and scientific literature. It’s been in use successfully since the early 90s and there are millions of safe and successful Botox injections per year.
The offering of Botox at our clinic is backed by extensive training by our dental team.
For your convenience, we can administer Botox injections during your regular dentist visit, or at a separate appointment.
