Aesthetic Treatments with BOTOX:
BOTOX Dental Treatments:
Bruxism (clenching and grinding) - Injecting the "masseter" (jaw muscle) with small amounts of BOTOX causes the muscle to relax, preventing clenching or grinding. In doing so, it relieves stress from the TMJ, and prevents related migraines.
Gummy Smile - (a smile line that exposes a large, unwanted amount of gum tissue) With two painless injections, the upper lip is relaxed and drops down to cover excessive gum tissue, creating a comfortable and aesthetically pleasing smile.
BOTOX Services FAQs:
Does the procedure hurt?
We use insulin needles. While you will be able to feel the injection, it is not painful. It is commonly compared to a “pinch”.
Will my face swell?
There is a small mosquito bite welt left at each injection site. This usually goes away within 30 minutes.
How often will I need to have my BOTOX done?
BOTOX lasts from 3 – 4 months
Are the results immediate?
No. It takes anywhere from 3 – 10 days for BOTOX to results to appear.
Are there any risks or contraindications?
BOTOX used in small doses is very safe. After injection, it spreads roughly the size of a dime. However, as with most medical products, there are safety and prescribing protocols. For more on the safety and efficacy of Botox, please click here
