Botox and Dermal Fillers
For smile lines, also called nasolabial folds, a dermal filler such as Restylane, juvederm or Radiesse will be better than Botox. Botox works best for dynamic “expression” lines such as forehead lines, crow’s feet around the eyes, and frown lines in between the eyebrows. Restylane Lyft, Juvederm ultra plus, and Radiesse are fairly long lasting, with results of up to a year. Botox usually last
Botox for TMJ Therapy
BOTOX® is used as an alternative treatment for TMJ (temporo-mandibular joint) disorders and associated jaw tension and pain. When injected into facial muscles afflicted with soreness and discomfort, BOTOX® relieves TMJ and jaw tension for many patients. The injections often eliminate headaches resulting from teeth grinding, and, in cases of severe stress, BOTOX® can even minimize lock jaw. Although BOTOX® treatment for these conditions is presently experimental; evidence indicates that it can be extremely effective.
