Botox Q & A

What is BOTOX?

BOTOX serum contains botulinum, a toxin produced by a bacterium called Clostridium botulinum. When injected into the face, this toxin can block certain nerves and prevent muscle contractions. BOTOX is often used as a cosmetic treatment, but it can also help address a variety of medical concerns.

How is BOTOX used?

BOTOX helps relax your facial muscles, smoothing away wrinkles and fine lines. It's a popular treatment among adults who want to combat signs of aging. But BOTOX does more than just treat cosmetic issues like wrinkles.

By forcing your facial muscles to relax, BOTOX can also relieve pain caused by temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorders. TMJ disorders can cause jaw pain, pain while chewing, and difficulty opening or closing your mouth.

This condition can have a significant impact on your quality of life and dental health. Fortunately, BOTOX injections can help eliminate many common TMJ symptoms.

Is BOTOX safe?

Many people mistakenly believe that BOTOX paralyzes your face or leaves you unable to make facial expressions. But properly-administered BOTOX produces a natural appearance. The best BOTOX procedures are customized to your personal needs and goals.

While BOTOX is available in many salons and spas, it's best to receive BOTOX injections from a qualified medical professional. Dr. Willey has the training and expertise needed to administer safe, effective BOTOX treatments with natural-looking results.

What can I expect from a BOTOX treatment?

Most BOTOX treatments take less than 30 minutes. There's no need to book a separate appointment: Dr. Willey and his team can administer your BOTOX injections during a routine office visit.

During your treatment, you may receive several injections at once. But the needles used during a BOTOX injection are small and thin, so there's a little discomfort. Dr. Willey may also apply a numbing cream to your skin to ensure that you don't experience any pain.

BOTOX results usually last for 3-6 months. After that, you may need additional injections to preserve your results. Dr. Willey can help you develop a treatment plan that combines regular BOTOX treatments with routine dental cleanings.
