Noticeable results, no surgery, and no recovery time - discover the benefits of Botox® at our practice.
There are many different reasons that patients choose to receive Botox® treatment, from wanting to remove fine lines and wrinkles to treating more severe conditions such as TMJ and chronic migraines. Botox® can relieve any of the symptoms that make you feel less confident, and help you achieve a more youthful, radiant appearance.
WHAT IS BOTOX® COSMETIC?
Botox® is a medication that can only be prescribed to you by a healthcare professional. It is used as a temporary treatment for patients between the ages of 18 and 65. Botox® treatments are quick and comfortable, and within hours you will begin to notice a difference in the way your skin looks and feels.
HOW DOES BOTOX® WORK?
Botox® uses a special protein to block overactive nerve impulses, restricting muscle contractions. In doing so, Botox® helps to relax the muscles beneath the skin, so that fine lines and wrinkles become less visible, giving the skin a healthy, more youthful appearance.
Depending on each individual case, the results can last between one and six months. Treatment is temporary, and once the Botox® begins to wear off, the skin will return to the way it looked before treatment.
Botox® is also used to relieve symptoms of TMJ, as well as provide comfort to patients receiving dental implants. In each case, Botox® is used to reduce the amount of stress placed on the teeth and jaw so that patients feel comfortable and confident.
