Why Choose a Dentist for BOTOX ® Cosmetic
You might think that a dermatologist or plastic surgeon is your best choice for BOTOX ® Cosmetic. However, a dentist, especially a neuromuscular dentist, is actually a great choice for treatment.
First, you’re already going to the dentist, so it lets you get treatment more conveniently. In addition, you can keep your secret–no one needs to know that you are getting BOTOX ® Cosmetic.
Second, dentists have detailed training and experience with the facial structure, including many of the muscles you want to get injected (and the ones you want to avoid affecting). They are used to giving facial injections, so they have a steady, gentle hand, which can reduce the effect of injections–less redness and swelling.
Jaw Sculpting with BOTOX ® Cosmetic
BOTOX ® Cosmetic can actually be used to achieve some significant reshaping of the face. Much of the shape of the jaw is created by jaw muscles. These can become overgrown or asymmetrical because of jaw imbalance and jaw clenching and grinding (bruxism). In these situations, BOTOX ® Cosmetic can be used to reduce the amount of jaw muscle activity, which will reduce the size of jaw muscles.
That way, you can transform the shape of your face and increase symmetry without surgery.
Reducing Jaw Pain and Headaches
Because BOTOX ® works by relaxing muscles, it can be used to relax muscles that do more than just cause wrinkles. Tension headaches and even migraines caused by tense muscles can be reduced or eliminated with regular BOTOX ® injections. BOTOX ® can even help treat temporomandibular joint disorders (TMJ), where muscle tension is the source of jaw pain–the most common type.
