Noticeable results, no surgery, and no recovery time – discover the benefits of Botox at our practice.
There are many different reasons why patients choose to receive Botox treatments. From wanting to remove fine lines and wrinkles to treating more severe cases like TMJ and chronic migraines, these treatments can help relieve any of the symptoms making you feel less confident, while helping 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 to temporarily treat patients between the ages of 18 and 65. Botox treatments are quick, comfortable, and within hours you will begin to notice a difference in the way your skin looks and feels.
How does it work?
Botox uses a special protein to block overactive nerve impulses, restricting muscle contractions. In doing so, they help to relax the muscles beneath the skin, so that fine lines and wrinkles become less visible, giving the skin a healthy, more youthful appearance.
Depending on each individual case, the results can last between one and six months. Treatment is temporary, and once the Botox begins to wear off, the skin will return to the way it looked before treatment.
Botox is also used to relive symptoms of TMJ, as well as provide comfort to patients receiving dental implants. In each care, Botox is used to reduce the amount of stress placed on the teeth and jaw so that patients feel comfortable and confident.
