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 can Botox help?

In addition to being used for cosmetic purposes, BOTOX® medication can be used to treat TMJ disorders and jaw tension. BOTOX® injections can eliminate headaches caused by teeth grinding, as well as minimizing lock jaw. BOTOX® works to treat TMJ disorders and jaw pain by rendering the muscles unable to engage in teeth grinding and clenching. BOTOX® treatment for TMJ disorders is fast, simple, and comfortable. While it may take up to a week to experience full relief, most patients notice improvement within one or two days of their first treatment. Contact us for more information about how BOTOX® can be used to treat symptoms of TMD.
