BOTOX Cosmetic in Burnaby

BOTOX Cosmetic for Headache and Jaw Pain ReliefMan holding jaw in pain | Dentist Burnaby BC

Do you wake up with headaches or find yourself clenching or grinding your teeth? Did you know that by using BOTOX Cosmetic we can help relax some of those muscles so that you can have relief from tension headaches and jaw pain? When we inject BOTOX into certain muscles in your face and jaw, it allows your face, head, and muscles to relax, reducing or eliminating stress and grinding tension. If you have a heavy bite, you can even prevent a square jowl from forming due to over usage of those muscle groups.

Since your jaw is one of the strongest muscles in your body, the use of BOTOX can provide relief for many of your symptoms while still allowing you chew and speak easily. Additionally, BOTOX can help prevent cracked and broken teeth due to grinding and clenching. Because the effects are temporary, the risks are low and can be adjusted over time as your body changes.

Cosmetic Uses for BOTOX

Your face is the most expressive feature you have. From your teeth and smile to your expressive eyes, your face often advertises how you feel, but what if your face is saying one thing, while you are feeling another?

In many cases, people develop lines and wrinkles that tell a different story. If you have wrinkles or deep grooves in your skin that developed because of aging, stress, or simply from looking at a computer screen all day, your face may not accurately express what you would like to project. To combat those lines and give your face a smoother, younger appearance, we offer BOTOX Cosmetic.

Fighting the “Angry 11” between Your Eyebrows with BOTOX Cosmetic

Smiling Woman | Burnaby BC DentistIf you are like many people, you might make faces when you concentrate on something or you are trying to solve a problem. For professionals who sit in front of a computer all day or stare at their smartphone screens, that can mean early aging due to deep lines and wrinkles. 

BOTOX Cosmetic helps us to address those lines between your eyebrows that can give you an angry look, even when you feel perfectly happy. By strategically injecting BOTOX into certain muscles in your forehead and between your eyebrows, we can help those muscles to relax. The side effect of relaxed muscles is a smoother, more youthful appearance. In fact, that is how BOTOX Cosmetic works – by addressing the underlying muscles that cause wrinkles.

Just a few days to a few weeks after your treatment, you will notice your muscles begin to feel relaxed. This gives your skin an opportunity to correct those common postures and expressions that cause wrinkles. Over time, because your muscles relax, your skin will have an opportunity to smooth out.

Correcting Crows Feet and Smile Lines

For other people, joy can take its toll on the appearance of your face. Everyone loves a beautiful smile, but even happiness can have an effect on the appearance of your skin. Any time you repeat an expression regularly, you run the risk of creating lines and wrinkles.

By using BOTOX Cosmetic, we can help gently relax some of those muscles so that your skin has an opportunity to become smooth again. Don’t worry, you will still be able to smile, laugh, and express yourself! We use just the right dosage and address only those areas that create deep expression lines.
