Botox: A Non-Surgical Solution to Anti-Aging and TMD
Life is a rollercoaster of emotions — we laugh, we cry, we pout, we smile. Over time, these emotions begin to show up as wrinkles on our once smooth faces. If you’re looking for a fresh start, we’ve got just the thing for you. And even if you’re not concerned with the aesthetic impacts of aging, you might be surprised to learn that Botox can also help people dealing with TMD (temporomandibular disorders) and bruxism (chronic teeth grinding).
How Does Botox Work?
Botox is an injection of highly purified botulinum toxin. It is used to temporarily improve the look of crow’s feet lines around the eyes and frown lines between the eyebrows. Botox temporarily relaxes and reduces muscle activity. This allows you to see visible smoothing of wrinkles in a short amount of time. Botox both makes existing wrinkles appear smoother and prevents future wrinkles from forming. When it comes to treating TMD and bruxism, Botox makes the muscles responsible for jaw pain and headaches relax, providing relief. Botox can be especially beneficial to patients who grind their teeth at night, which is a difficult habit to break for obvious reasons.
After your Botox treatment, there is minimal recovery time and you can immediately and easily resume your day-to-day activities. It only takes two to seven days to see the final results of your treatment, and the effects last between 4-6 months!
