Botox Q & A

What are the cosmetic uses for Botox?

Botox is a multi-use treatment that offers great results for lines and wrinkles. Botox is FDA-approved for use in three parts of the face. 

  • Glabellar lines: the frown lines between your brows
  • Forehead lines: horizontal lines above brows, and below the hairline
  • Crow’s feet: lines radiating from eyes

Botox decreases muscle movement to smooth wrinkles for up to four months. 

What are the therapeutic uses of Botox?

Prestige Family Dentistry offers two different therapeutic uses for Botox: temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorders treatment and headache treatment. 

Botox for TMJ disorders relief

Botox can help with TMJ pain because it relaxes the muscles where your Prestige Family Dentistry practitioner injects it. Depending on your specific situation, Botox for TMJ disorders could last from three to five months. Patients who have Botox injections for TMJ disorders can experience a significant reduction in jaw pain, clicking or popping when opening the jaw, and less soreness overall. 

Botox for headache relief

If you suffer from chronic headaches, especially if the headaches are migraines related to dental issues or TMJ-related, Botox can be a great solution. Many patients who get Botox for migraines enjoy a significant reduction in the number of headaches they have every month and less pain when migraines do occur. Usually, to maintain migraine relief, you need Botox injections in your neck and head approximately every three months. 

If you’re struggling with either TMJ disorders symptoms or migraine headaches, talk to your Prestige Family Dentistry care provider about how Botox could help you. 

What do Botox injections feel like?

Botox injections are usually pain-free. The thin needles might briefly sting, but any pain fades right away. Your Prestige Family Dentistry care practitioner can apply an ice pack to ease any brief discomfort you might experience during Botox treatment. 

Is there any downtime following Botox treatment?

No, that’s one of the great advantages of Botox as a cosmetic or therapeutic treatment: no downtime at all. Most Botox treatments take as little as 10-15 minutes at Prestige Family Dentistry, and you can get back to normal activity right away.
