What is Botox® Cosmetic?
Botox Cosmetic is a neuromodulator that has been approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for cosmetic use in the United States since 2002. The popular injectable is a purified protein produced by the Clostridium botulinum bacterium. It works by blocking the transmission of nerve impulses to the targeted facial muscles that contract and cause wrinkles and expression lines. The muscles remain temporarily relaxed, making the overlying skin smooth and free of wrinkles, while also preventing the muscles from creating new wrinkles.
Popular areas for Botox injections include between the eyebrows, the forehead, the “crow’s feet” at the outer corner of the eyes and the “bunny lines” at the nose. The injectable is sometimes recommended for the treatment of other issues, such as bruxism, migraine headaches, gummy smiles, TMJ pain and excessive perspiration as well.
Botox for Bruxism
Do you clench and grind your teeth? Is it causing pain and dental issues? Have you tried other treatment options without success? Botox injections may be able to help. Dr. Eisenberg can inject Botox into the masseter muscle, which is the large muscle that moves the jaw, causing it to temporarily relax. This can help with teeth grinding and clenching (bruxism) and the pain, wear and tear on the teeth, and headaches associated with it.
Benefits of Botox Cosmetic
Helps You Look Younger
Botox significantly reduces the appearance of lines and wrinkles by temporarily relaxing the muscles, making you look more youthful and refreshed. It also prevents new wrinkles from forming.
Botox Cosmetic has been FDA approved for cosmetic use since 2002 and millions of people worldwide have used Botox with excellent results. With a few exceptions, it’s safe for most patients between the ages of 18 and 65.
Quick and Convenient
Botox treatment only takes about 10 minutes and results can last up to four months. There is no downtime after injections and you can immediately go about the rest of your day.
Treating frown lines and wrinkles or bruxism with Botox injections is quick, safe and straightforward. In the majority of cases, it can be done on the same day as your consultation with Dr. Eisenberg. While she can apply a topical numbing cream to the area, most patients don’t need it. Using a tiny, fine needle, Dr. Eisenberg will inject the Botox very precisely into the desired muscles. You may feel some pressure or a stick comparable to a bug bite, but discomfort is minimal. In less than 10 minutes, you’ll be done!
You will likely see results within a few days, though it can take two weeks to get the full effect. Results are temporary and last up to four months. If you stop using Botox, your muscles will return back to normal and it will be like you never had treatment. If you’d like ongoing Botox injections to keep wrinkles at bay, Dr. Eisenberg will work with you to create the ideal appointment schedule.
After your procedure, there is no downtime and you can go about your normal activities. Occasionally, you may have minor redness, swelling and pinpoint bruising at the injection sites, but this will go away on its own quickly.
