What is Botox® Cosmetic?

Botox® is a medication that can only be prescribed to you by a healthcare professional. It is used as a temporary treatment for patients between the ages of 18 and 65. Botox® treatments are quick and comfortable, and within hours you will begin to notice a difference in the way your skin looks and feels.

There are many different reasons that patients choose to receive Botox® treatment, from wanting to remove fine lines and wrinkles to treating more severe conditions such as TMJ and chronic migraines. Botox® can relieve any of the symptoms that make you feel less confident, and help you achieve a more youthful, radiant appearance.

Dr. Murthy may recommend botox for your treatment for one or more of its myriad of benefits

  • Reducing fine lines and wrinkles
  • Relaxing lip muscles to make lips appear fuller, ‘lip flip’
  • Prevent wrinkles by reducing clenching
  • Correct the appearance of a ‘gummy smile’

How does Botox® work?

Botox® uses a special protein to block overactive nerve impulses, restricting muscle contractions. In doing so, Botox® helps to relax the muscles beneath the skin, so that fine lines and wrinkles become less visible, giving the skin a healthy, more youthful appearance.

Botox® is also used to relieve symptoms of TMJ, as well as provide comfort to patients receiving dental implants. In each case, Botox® is used to reduce the amount of stress placed on the teeth and jaw so that patients feel comfortable and confident.

Depending on each individual case, the results can last between one and six months. Treatment is temporary, and once the Botox® begins to wear off, the skin will return to the way it looked before treatment.
