Botox® (also known as Botulinum Toxin) is an FDA approved protein that is injected into the muscles that will temporarily block nerve singles resulting in a relaxed muscle. This reduces the look of fine lines and wrinkles. Treatments take only minutes and results are seen in two to ten days. Results last three to four months before retreatment is needed. Botox can provide other benefits in addition to cosmetic procedures.
Grinding and clenching (bruxism): Millions of people find that they clench or grind their teeth. When other treatment options don’t provide enough relief, Botox can be injected into the jaw muscles to relax them. TMD pain and Migraines: TMD stands for temporomandibular joint disorder. This disorder can result in significant pain and damage to teeth. Botox injections are safe and effective in treating TMD. Cosmetic: Botox is used to treat areas of the face that have fine lines and wrinkles.
