What is Botox and How Does Botox Work?
Botox treatments are created from botulinum toxin, which blocks the nerve signals that tell the muscles to contract. When the muscles are injected with Botox, they relax and do not contract normally. These contractions are ultimately the cause behind wrinkles, bruxism (clenching the jaw and grinding the teeth) and similarly undesirable conditions.
Botox for Wrinkles
Botox injections are effective, non-surgical treatments to reduce facial wrinkles and neck lines! When we inject Botox into areas of the face affected by wrinkles, smile lines, eyebrow lines, forehead lines, age lines, lipstick lines or crow’s feet, this treatment causes undesirable lines to smoothen out and temporarily disappear.
Botox treatments cause the skin and facial structure to appear fresher, younger, tighter and smoother!
Botox for Gummy Smiles
Botox injections treat “gummy smiles” by reducing excessive lip elevation that causes the appearance of a gummy smile. The botulinum toxin is injected directly into the “elevator” muscle of the upper lip; it weakens the muscle's ability to contract, or raise up too high when smiling, which prevents overexposure of the gum line, thus treating a “gummy smile”.
Botox for Clenching and Grinding (Bruxism)
By injecting Botox treatments in specific areas of the jaw, we can prompt these muscles to relax. When these muscles are relaxed, they won’t clench, grind or react to stress as they did prior to treatment.
Botox for TMJ Syndrome
As clenching the jaw and grinding teeth are symptoms regularly associated with TMJ syndrome, Botox for TMJ syndrome works similarly to Botox for bruxism. Botox injections target the source of symptoms associated with TMJ syndrome by relaxing the dysfunctioning jaw muscles that are causing pain and discomfort. (Many people report a more appealing jawline after Botox treatments for TMJ syndrome too!)
How long does Botox last?
Botox injections take only minutes to administer! You can receive Botox treatments at your next checkup without scheduling an additional appointment or significantly extending your appointment.
Your Botox treatment can take anywhere from 3 to 7 days for you to see or feel its full effect. It’s recommended that patients visit us every 3 to 4 months to ensure effective treatments and to prevent symptoms (such as undesirable wrinkles or unpleasant muscle contractions) from resurfacing.
