Facial Filler & Botox

Through aging, often the skin turns less elastic creating frown lines and wrinkles between the eyebrows. The only FDA-approved prescription treatment for moderate to severe frown lines between the brows in people ages 18 to 65 is Botox. The American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery ranked Botox as the most popular physician-administered cosmetic procedure in the United States since 2008.

Botox procedures consists of several tiny injections and can be performed in under 10 minutes. No anesthesia is required; however the oral surgeon may numb the area with a cold pack or anesthetic cream prior to treatment. Minimal and brief discomfort is typical, in addition to slight, temporary bruising at the injection sight. Results are typically seen in days and may continue to improve during the first week after treatment.

Botox is also used for therapeutic and rehabilitative reasons, such as a muscle relaxant to relieve pain associated with chronic clenching and grinding of teeth (TMJ disorders). For TMJ, a Botox injection is often required to relax the jaw muscles prior to surgery.
