Your Centennial dentist at Homestead Dental has been trained by the American Academy of Facial Esthetics to administer this cosmetic treatment not only for natural looking cosmetic improvements but also headaches associated jaw tension and pain.
How can botox tackle both issues? What makes it so effective?
Why are Botox Injections So Popular?
According to the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, non-surgical cosmetic have increased 44% over the past five years.
In 2014, there were over 4 million botox procedures in the United States alone.
Consider what makes botox one of the most commonly performed cosmetic procedures:
- improvement is seen within 1 week of treatment
- results last 3-6 months
- treatment is relatively pain-free and brief
- an average cost of $380 per treatment
With minimal cost and low incidence of side effects, it is no wonder why it continues to grow in popularity.
What Does Botox Treat?
Simply stated, Botox is a prescription medication that is injected to relax muscles. It is commonly used in conjunction with dermal fillers that add volume to different areas of the face.
Botox injections are successfully used to treat dynamic wrinkles, the wrinkles caused by movement in the facial features. You may notice these types in several areas:
- forehead lines or “expression lines”
- frown lines
- crow’s feet around the outer corners of the eyes
- upper lip lines
- smile lines
- sagging eyebrows
Your injection treatment provider will recommend a specific number of units to fully correct your lines, creases, and wrinkles. You will not see results immediately after the treatment. Depending on the patient and area treated, it may take between 3 and 7 days after the initial treatment to experience full results.
Therapeutic Dental Benefits
Because of the muscle relaxing effects of the medication, botox injections are FDA approved to treat tense muscles in the jaw and face that cause tension headaches or migraines. The treatment is particularly effective for TMJ sufferers because the muscles stay relaxed even when sleeping and can’t contribute to clenching or grinding.
