Botox is a medication that can only be prescribed to you by a healthcare professional. It is used as a temporary treatment for patients between the ages of 18 and 65. Botox treatments are quick and comfortable, and within hours you will begin to notice a difference in the way your skin looks and feels.

Botox uses a special protein to block overactive nerve impulses, restricting muscle contractions. In doing so, Botox helps 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 relieve symptoms of TMJ, as well as provide comfort to patients receiving dental implants. In each case, Botox is used to reduce the amount of stress placed on the teeth and jaw so that patients feel comfortable and confident.

Botox may or may not be the right treatment for you. The best candidates for treatment with Botox are:

  • Between the ages of 18 and 65
  • Diagnosed with, and experiencing discomfort from, TMJ
  • Concerned with removing wrinkles and fine lines
  • Looking for a non-surgical skin treatment
  • Aware that Botox results are temporary
  • In good physical and psychological health
  • Willing to discuss their concerns and desires with their dentist before treatment
