Botox is a "neuromodulator" (a type of botulinum toxin type A) that is injected into selected areas of treatment using a very small needle. Basically, how it works is by blocking signals to the nerves needed for your facial muscles to contract. When your face repeatedly contracts its facial muscles it leads to the wrinkle and lines. Once the botox treatment is applied, the neuromodulator relaxes these facial muscles and slows and lessens their movement to help reduce the appearance of lines or wrinkles in the treated areas. Results will be visible in roughly three to seven days following the botox treatments.

What Areas Of My Face Can I Have Treated?

You can have botox treatments applied in any number of different areas of your face. These include your forehead, area around the eyes (crows feet), and lines around the lips. We also often use botox in patients who want to soften or reduce a dimpling of their chin. If you suffer from TMJ or if you grind your teeth, botox can help treat the ailment by lessening the pain.
