What is Botox® Cosmetic and how does it work?

Botox® Cosmetic is a prescription medicine that is injected into your facial muscles. It is used to reduce the look of moderate to severe frown lines between the eyebrows and “crow’s feet” that develop around the eyes. It works by blocking the nerve impulses to the injected sites, reducing the muscle activity that causes these persistent lines to form. The effects of Botox® cosmetic are temporary, lasting up to 4 months.

Why should I consider Botox® Cosmetic?

You may have noticed frown lines between your brows or “crow’s feet” near your eyes, making you look tired or even older than you should. Ask Dr. Manos-Balis if Botox® is right for you. Real results, no surgery, and no recovery time necessary are a few of the reasons to choose treatment with Botox® Cosmetic.

Is there any medical reason to use Botox® Cosmetic?

Yes. Botox® Cosmetic may be used in treatment of Temporomandibular Joint Disorders (TMJ/TMD).  Botox® Cosmetic is injected into facial and jaw muscles to provide relief from jaw tension and soreness. Additionally, these injections can reduce bruxism (teeth grinding), minimize lockjaw, and eliminate bruxism headaches.

Will I still be able to have facial expressions?

Although the results are visible, a treatment with Botox® Cosmetic will not radically change your facial appearance or make you look as if you’ve “had work done.” The muscle activity that causes frown lines between the brows is temporarily reduced, so you can still frown or look surprised, just without the wrinkles and creases.

How long can I expect my results to last?

Visible results can last up to 4 months. Your own results may vary. Dr. Manos-Balis will discuss with you what you should expect and when you should schedule your next appointment.
