As we age, it is only natural that over time, the skin will gradually lose collagen and elasticity, two vital proteins that help us look young. Everyone will inevitably notice some wrinkles and minor laxity. But that said, that does not mean there is nothing you can do to help regain the tight and smooth skin of your youth. If no matter how many anti-aging creams you have tried, you haven’t seen desired results, Botox might be the treatment for you. Are you curious about what Botox can do for you?

How Do You Know If You’re a Good Candidate For Botox?
If you have any areas around the face or neck that you find displeasing due to fine lines and wrinkles, Botox may be the right choice for you. If you are interested in smoothing out fine lines, especially in those specific areas where we often move our face for facial expressions—such as around the forehead,eyes, and in between the eyebrows—you should consider a Botox treatment for your skin.
While Botox has become a cornerstone treatment to prevent lines and wrinkles, patients who clench and grind their teeth at night or have TMJ may also benefit from this revolutionary treatment. When administered into the jaw, Botox carefully reduces muscle activity and in doing so, minimizes discomfort from TMJ as well as the ability to grind the teeth. To learn more about Botox for teeth-grinding or treating TMJ, ask our specialists during your consultation!
What Is Getting a Botox Treatment Like?
A Botox treatment is a fairly quick experience that will typically take around 15 minutes to complete. Your specialists will use a tiny needle to insert the FDA-approved Botox formula right beneath the surface of the skin in the designated areas. The number of injections you will need depends on the various areas you may be looking to address and how severe the wrinkles may appear.
This tiny injection will reduce facial muscle activity that are causing wrinkles through facial expressions. In doing so, Botox softens the apperance of fine lines and wrinkles in the treated areas. Typically, clients will notice a significant improvement in their skin within a few days, though it could take up to a week for you to see the maximum effects of the treatment. Ultimately, results will vary.
How Much Downtime Is There?
One of the benefits patients love most about the Botox treatment is that it grants no downtime afterward. Unlike a surgery or major procedure, the Botox treatment allows you to return to your daily activities immediately.
