What is Botox?
Botox treatments were originally used for patients with muscle and joint pain. By stopping unnecessary, sporadic motions of muscles, Botox offers relief from chronic pain. Doctors then discovered that by stopping the unconscious motion of muscles around the eyes, creases in the skin begin to diminish. Botox decreases these muscular contractions for about six months, and regular reapplication is quick and convenient at our practice.
Botox Cosmetic is used to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Following your injection, the targeted facial muscle groups will cease to make unconscious movements. You will still be able to control and move the muscles of your face purposefully. Botox injections only limit unconscious, unnecessary movements. Botox Cosmetic remains effective for between four and six months for most patients. To ensure you maintain flawless results, we’ll work with you to schedule ongoing maintenance appointments. Because this treatment is quick and painless, many patients receive these services as part of their regular six month dental appointments. We can even fit you in over lunch.
We also use Botox for its original, pain relieving purposes in our office. Patients who suffer from chronic migraine headaches and temporomandibular joint (TMJ) dysfunction. Depending on the severity of your migraines or TMJ dysfunction, we may need to see you every few months or more often. Every patient responds differently, so we will work with you to create an ongoing injection schedule to maintain your comfort. Patients who experience severe or chronic migraines typically notice a significant reduction in both the number of headache days and the severity of their migraines. Patients who suffer from TMJ dysfunction can expect significant relief form jaw pain as well as improved range of motion.
