Botox, or onabotulinumtoxinA, is a protein we inject into muscles to smooth wrinkles. We typically inject Botox in the brow muscle to help smooth any wrinkles between your brow and crow’s feet. Another area we target with Botox is severe frown lines. Elite Orthodontics is proud to offer this service to our patients because it gives their faces and smiles a more youthful and energetic appearance. While Botox is only a temporary treatment, it can help you achieve the aesthetics you’ve always wanted. Our team members are skilled at using this tool to help patients get the look they want, so you can have peace of mind that you are under the care of a highly-trained professional.
Beyond beautiful aesthetics, Botox can have many health benefits that provide patients with a level of comfort they didn’t know was possible. This injection is often used to treat Temporomandibular Joint or TMJ disorders that cause pain in the jaw and surrounding muscles. Botox will limit the jaw’s functionality and provide the patient with pain relief so they don’t experience discomfort when biting, eating, speaking, and more. This treatment can also reduce migraines and excessive sweating, so you experience ultimate comfort and aesthetics.
While Botox may sound intimidating, it is a simple treatment that doesn’t require an incision or surgery. Once we inject the medicine into your muscles, you can continue your day without any recovery period. We work hard to ensure you are always comfortable and well informed about your treatments, and we will walk you through the Botox process, so you don’t have to guess. You can typically see the results of this service about 24-48 hours after the injection, and it lasts up to four months,
