What Is Botox Cosmetic?

Botox cosmetic is a treatment for patients seeking a solution to the signs of aging. With Botox you can reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and really turn back time. Your skin will look firm, smooth, and will have that youthful glow.

Botox is composted of a botulinum toxin which is a neurotoxic protein. This protein relaxes the muscles, and in turn reduces and prevents wrinkles. Botox can provide results quickly, and is minimally invasive. Botox is typically used to treat the forehead, area between your eyes or glabellar lines, and crow’s feet. Wrinkles form over time from repeated muscle contractions or facial expressions, and Botox can temporarily relax those muscles, and smooth out your skin.

What Are the Benefits of Botox?

  • Patients have little to no downtime after treatment
  • Sessions are minimally invasive and quick
  • Botox produces amazing results
  • Treatment plans are customized for each patient

Botox takes up to a week to notice results. The results from Botox are temporary, and can last between 3-12 months. This depends on the severity of the wrinkles and amount of Botox used. Multiple treatments are required to keep up with your Botox in order to maintain the desired results.

What To Expect During My Botox Treatment?

There is no preparation needed for Botox, and the process is minimally invasive and quick. The Botox is diluted and injected into the facial neuromuscular tissue. This helps to reduce fine lines and wrinkles, and targets your areas of concern.

Typically, Botox takes between 24-72 hours to take effect, and patients can notice results 5-7 days after their treatment. Patients may experience slight swelling or bruising around the injection site, but this should subside after a few days.

What is Botox Treatment For TMD/TMJ?

TMD, also known as temporomandibular joint dysfunction, is a common condition that causes the hinge joint that attaches the lower jaw to the skull to become painful, stiff or inflamed. This can be caused by routine grinding, clenching and simply because of aging. In order to relieve the stiffness and discomfort that you're experiencing, Botox injections can be used. These injections relieve the tension of the jaw, allowing it to function more freely without the pain that's often involved.

Why is Botox Treatment For TMD/TMJ needed?

TMJ dysfunction and disorder is incredibly common. It can be caused by a number of factors, but the bottom line is that it causes a person to be in pain and severe discomfort. The pain may come and go when opening and closing your mouth, or it might be constant and persistent regardless of the jaw's position. Botox is an essential treatment that can essentially get back your quality of life. The injections are safe and effective, providing relief of TMD for many months.

Who is a candidate for Botox Treatment For TMD/TMJ?

We will carefully examine the TMJ area and take x-rays as needed. We will feel the joint as you open and close your mouth and listen for any popping, grinding or cracking. If we feel that you would benefit from Botox injections, we will suggest this as part of your treatment. In order to fully relieve TMD, we may suggest other types of treatments as well.

What happens during Botox Treatment For TMD/TMJ?

The Botox procedure begins with a topical anesthetic applied to the jaw area. This helps to minimize pain during the injections. We then inject Botox several times in the jaw area. You will experience immediate results that get better over the course of the first few days. You can experience relief of tension and stiffness for many months after the injections have been done. In order to keep the TMJ area feeling its best, it is important that you come back in to have additional Botox injected as part of a retreatment plan.
