What is Botox® and how does it work?
Botox® is a prescription medicine that is injected into your facial muscles. It is used to reduce the look of moderate to severe frown lines between the eyebrows and “crow’s feet” that develop around the eyes. 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® are temporary, lasting up to 4 months.
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 should. Ask Dr. Israeli if Botox® is right for you. Real results, no surgery, and no recovery time necessary are a few of the reasons to choose treatment with Botox®.
Is there any medical reason to use Botox®?
Yes. Botox® may be used in treatment of Temporomandibular Joint Disorders (TMJ/TMD) and Bruxism. 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 bruxism headaches.
Will I still be able to have facial expressions?
Although the results are visible, a treatment with Botox® will not radically change your facial appearance or make you look as if you’ve “had work done.” The muscle activity that causes frown lines between the brows is temporarily reduced, so you can still frown or look surprised, just without the wrinkles and creases. Additionally, Botox can fix that gummy smile and bring your lips down to show your beautiful, new smile.
How long can I expect my results to last?
Visible results can last up to 4 months. Your own results may vary. Dr. Israeli will discuss with you what you should expect and when you should schedule your next appointment.
