As you age, crows feet, frown lines, and forehead creases are inevitable. For some, this issue can start to manifest in their 20s or early 30s and for others it comes later in life.

Either way, you need to know there are treatments available to help prevent facial wrinkles from becoming a fixed feature on your face; and one of the most common (and successful) treatments out there is Botox®.

Frequently Asked Questions

I’ve Heard Of Botox, But What Is It?

Botox is a muscle relaxing agent made from onabotulinumtoxinA, which prevents the muscles from creating wrinkles in the face. Botox is designed to treat wrinkles caused when you move your facial muscles.

Since Botox is a prescription medicine that gets injected into your facial muscles, it can reduce the look of moderate to severe frown lines between the eyebrows and “crow’s feet” that develop around the eyes.

Botox can also provide therapeutic relief for TMJ pain, migraine headaches, and trigger point therapy for muscles.

It works by blocking the nerve impulses to the injected sites, reducing the muscle activity that causes these persistent lines to form. The effects of Botox® Cosmetic are temporary, lasting up to 4 months.

How Does It Work?

Botox is a non-surgical injection that goes into the face. The protein that is injected helps to prevent wrinkles caused by muscles and is particularly useful on the upper half of the face. If the muscle does not contract, then the skin will not show the lines associated with crows feet, frown lines, and forehead wrinkles.

Why Should I Consider Botox?

You may have noticed frown lines between your brows or “crow’s feet” near your eyes, making you look tired or even older than you are.

Ask Dr. Silverman, Dr. Plaisance or Dr. Morton at Advanced Cosmetic & Family Dentistry if Botox is right for you. Not only will you experience real, visible results, but there is no recovery time or surgery needed for Botox fillers.

How Long Does It Take To See Results?

While every patient is a unique case, most of our patients see results from Botox within 3-5 days with full results approximately 2 weeks after the procedure.

One of the best things about Botox is that it isn’t a “drastic” procedure. People will notice that you have fewer wrinkles, but it’s not an overwhelming change.

How Long Can I Expect My Results to Last?

Visible results can last up to 4 months. Your own results may vary. Our dentists will discuss with you what you should expect and when you should schedule your next appointment.

Can Botox be used for teeth grinding?

Botox may be used in the treatment of Temporomandibular Joint Disorders (TMJ/TMD).  Botox is injected into facial and jaw muscles to provide relief from jaw tension and soreness.

Additionally, these injections can reduce bruxism (teeth grinding), minimize lockjaw, and eliminate headaches caused by teeth grinding.
