Botox® is an FDA approved purified protein which is injected into targeted muscles and temporarily blocks nerve signals that cause muscle movements, essentially relaxing the muscle which reduces or eliminates fine lines and wrinkles.
Millions of people use Botox® to achieve a more relaxed and smooth facial appearance, while still having the freedom of expression. Most people also suffer from TMJ syndrome, chronic migraine headaches and other types of facial pain. You may have tried a number of different treatments for facial pain relief that have had little success. Botox® can be very effective in treatment of facial pain disorders when used in conjunction with other treatments. Now you can radiate beauty and find pain relief by receiving Botox® treatments from our doctors who have been specially trained in total facial esthetics and facial pain.
How Does Botox® Work?
Within 3-10 days of the Botox® injection, the treated facial muscles become temporarily relaxed, causing the overlying skin to lay flat and unwrinkled. The untreated facial muscles contract in a normal fashion allowing facial expressions to be unaffected. Botox® injections only take a few minutes and will remain effective for approximately 3 months. With regular treatments, Botox® can help train your facial muscles to reduce wrinkles and facial pain for longer periods of time.
To ensure that your Botox® results are lasting as long as possible, take care of the skin on your treated areas by doing the following:
- Avoid sun exposure
- Avoid high-intensity workouts
- Use collagen supplements to help the skin look as rejuvenated as possible
- Keep your skin moisturized
- Eat a balanced diet
- Avoid smoking
- Avoid rubbing your injection site
- Avoid drinking alcohol immediately after your Botox® injection treatment
