BOTOX® (onabotulinumtoxinA) is a medication that is injected into the muscles of the brow to smooth frown lines between the brows and crow’s feet. In fact, BOTOX® is the only approved treatment to temporarily improve the appearance of moderate to severe frown lines and crow’s feet lines. BOTOX® can help you to look younger, calmer and more alert. Our dentists may recommend BOTOX® as a great choice to help you regain a more youthful appearance and boost your self-confidence.
BOTOX® can also be used for a number of other purposes. Based on your specific needs, we may suggest BOTOX® to reduce migraine headaches, treat a TMJ disorder and even in the removal of excess gum tissue, a condition known as a “gummy” smile.
BOTOX® involves no incisions, stitches or surgery, so you can resume your daily routine directly following your appointment. This also means that your treatment will be comfortable and fast. Our team will simply inject the medication into the muscles. We may use ice or a topical numbing cream before the treatment to ensure that you feel completely comfortable. You may begin noticing improvements as soon as 24 to 48 hours after the treatment, and your BOTOX® results can last up to four months.
