Jaw Pain & Wrinkle Reduction
The use of Botulinum toxin in cosmetic applications is gaining attention, and you've likely heard about it many times. But did you know that it can be as simple as visiting your dentist? We are pleased to be one of the few dental practices that offer this unique treatment.
Botulinum toxin A is a natural protein purified for medicinal use. Designed for simplicity and safety, it's gently injected into the muscles of the face. Over the course of the next couple of weeks, the muscles begin to relax. As a result, the skin over the muscles relaxes and wrinkles disappear! We use it to smooth unsightly wrinkles in the forehead, between and around the eyes, at the corners of the mouth, and other areas.
In addition to improving the way you look, Botulinum toxin can also relieve pain. As experts of the face and mouth, dentists understand that pain and headaches come from many sources. We use Botulinum toxin to provide lasting relaxation to the muscles that cause chronic headaches and TMJ pain. There is no numbness or other discomfort caused in the areas where Botulinum toxin application occurs. For most patients, results usually last three to four months. Botulinum toxin can simply be reapplied as needed.
Whether you want to recapture your youth or put an end to headaches and jaw pain, we can find a way for Botulinum toxin to help you.
