Because it’s so famous for its wrinkle reducing effects, Botox, like Kleenex or Xerox has become the verb for describing the treatment, regardless of the manufacturer used. BOTOX® Cosmetic is a prescription medicine that is injected into muscles and used to temporarily improve the look of both moderate to severe crow’s feet lines and frown lines between the eyebrows in adults. As anti-wrinkle cosmetic treatments go, Botox is the number one choice for smoother, younger-looking skin. The procedure is pain-free, non-permanent and so quick you could be in and out within your lunch hour, seriously. And results are visible in only a few days.
And Botox is not just for wrinkles anymore. It is much, much more. It’s being used for both FDA approved and ‘off label’ treatment with doctors experimenting with how to help patient disorders such as migraine headaches, gummy smiles (not FDA approved) and TMJ disorder (also not FDA approved). Some of its results are astonishing, creating some 90 patient applications pending FDA approval. Currently, it is the most common performed procedure in the world and you can have done in our office. No one should have more experience with injections than our dentist.
It’s not as expensive as you might think. Call today for your complimentary evaluation.

 While Botox was the first drug to utilize botulinum toxin, newer products include Dysport, Myobloc and Xeomin. Each product is a little different, particularly when it comes to dosage units, so they aren’t interchangeable.
 No anesthetic is needed during treatment.
 The product known as BOTOX® Cosmetic was approved by the FDA in 2002 for the treatment of glabellar frown lines and in 2013 for the improvement of lateral canthal lines.
