The Unique Benefits of Receiving BOTOX® Cosmetic at Our Office
BOTOX® Cosmetic provides a wealth of benefits for our patients. We can perform this nonsurgical, safe treatment during your lunch break, or in combination with another dental treatment. BOTOX® injections provide a rejuvenating reduction in fine lines, wrinkles, and crows’ feet. We can also use this medication to more effectively treat temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorders. Dr. Timothy M. Kelly can provide you with a detailed overview of the many benefits of BOTOX® Cosmetic during a consultation at our Albuquerque, NM, office.
About BOTOX® Cosmetic
BOTOX® Cosmetic is the most widely used injectable treatment in the United States. It provides patients with a temporary reduction in fine lines, wrinkles, and crows’ feet. The solution is derived from safe, effective botulinum toxin protein, which Dr. Kelly injects with a very thin needle. BOTOX® Cosmetic works by relaxing the muscles in designated treatment areas, resulting in a reduction in the appearance of lines and wrinkles in that area, and preventing future wrinkles from developing.
BOTOX® Cosmetic is one of the safest and most effective ways to reduce signs of aging. You can enjoy a more youthful appearance, with smoother and more toned skin. BOTOX® injections can reduce lines and wrinkles around the mouth, between the eyebrows, in the forehead, and around the eyes. By reducing lines and wrinkles, you can dramatically improve your appearance. Your skin can look rejuvenated, and you can appear years younger.
Quick, Convenient Treatment
BOTOX® Cosmetic is a quick and nearly painless procedure. Dr. Kelly can perform the treatment in less than 15 minutes. There is no downtime or recovery period required, so you can get back to your normal day-to-day activities immediately following treatment. BOTOX® injections are the best noninvasive treatment for reducing signs of aging without painful surgery and lengthy recovery periods. In less than a week, your results can become fully visible, and the effects can last from three to four months.
Just as BOTOX® Cosmetic relaxes the muscles to reduce the appearance of wrinkles, it can relax the muscles around the TMJ, reducing stress and pain on the joint.
BOTOX® Cosmetic is also a potential treatment for patients with TMJ disorder. Your TMJ is the joint on either side of your face, just in front of your ears, which connects your lower jaw with the temporal bones of your skull. Patients suffering from chronic jaw pain, headaches, neck pain, or other pain associated with a TMJ disorder may benefit from BOTOX® Cosmetic as part of their treatment.
Just as the medication relaxes the muscles to reduce the appearance of wrinkles, it can relax the muscles around the TMJ, reducing stress and pain on the joint. While BOTOX® injections may not be fully effective as a standalone treatment for TMJ disorder, they can provide additional relief in conjunction with other treatments, such as an oral appliance.
Benefits of Combining with Other Treatments
The appearance of your teeth can make you appear prematurely aged as well. For even more dramatic results, we can combine your BOTOX® Cosmetic treatment with a variety of other cosmetic dental treatments. Dr. Kelly may recommend professional teeth whitening to remove stains and brighten your smile. For minor damage, deep-set stains, or minor misalignment, he may recommend porcelain veneers. With a straighter and whiter smile, and the smoothing effects of BOTOX® Cosmetic, you can appear years younger.
