Issues that BOTOX Treatments Can Help With

BOTOX treatments are particularly well-suited for:

  • Forehead lines
  • Crow’s feet (lines at the outside corners of the eyes)
  • Frown lines (including the “angry 11” that forms above the nose and between the eyebrows)
  • Lines around the lips

BOTOX is administered via injection with a very fine needle into specific muscles. There is minimal discomfort during treatment, and it generally takes about three to seven days before its effects are visible. Tips for successful treatment include avoiding alcohol and anti-inflammatory medications a week before undergoing the procedure.

The effects of BOTOX for cosmetic treatment generally lasts four to six months. The muscles that were paralysed by the injection gradually begin to relax, and you may need follow-up treatment.

Possible Side Effects of BOTOX

Side effects with BOTOX are minimal, with temporary bruising as the most common. A minority of people get headaches after treatment, but this is uncommon. Drooping around the injection site can also happen if you rub the area, so it’s best to keep your hands away in the days following treatment.

man holding jaw from pain If you suffer from headaches, jaw pain, or have an interest in improving the appearance of your face, you have probably heard of BOTOX Cosmetic. Many of our patients enjoy the benefits that BOTOX® treatment offers.

BOTOX® can treat headaches, jaw pain, and correct the appearance of wrinkles on the forehead, around the eyes, and near the mouth without the use of fillers.

BOTOX Treatment in Burnaby

It works by relaxing the muscles in a targeted area. When used properly, you will not have to worry about a “frozen face” appearance.

We will first make small marks to identify the areas which may benefit from BOTOX® treatment. The idea of injections may cause uneasiness with some patients, but BOTOX® injections are tolerated well by most patients and cause little post-treatment discomfort.

Within a few days to a week after your treatment, you will begin to notice a subtle difference where BOTOX® was applied. Muscle tension will reduce, allowing those muscles to relax and smooth out. For most patients, the positive effects of BOTOX® last about four to six months when you may begin to feel it wearing out. So that you can continue to enjoy the benefits, we invite you to come back in for a maintenance treatment.

Woman holding jaw in pain If you are considering BOTOX cosmetic treatment in Burnaby, BC choosing to have anti-wrinkle injections with a dentist offers many benefits over those in salons, spas, and aesthetician clinics.

Dentists have an in-depth knowledge of the muscle structure of the face – much more anatomy education than aestheticians and non-dental practitioners receive. Because BOTOX injections relax the muscles of the face and head, this knowledge can give you more precise results without any unwanted side effects.

How Botox Can Be Used in Dentistry

A botox dentist also uses this treatment for a number of non-cosmetic procedures, including headache treatment, migraines and reliving facial tension that is associated with hyper-expression and device use.

Painful jaw muscles and joints often stem from TMJ disorders or night time teeth clenching and grinding. By reducing the power of those jaw muscles, you can avoid joint discomfort.

BOTOX is entirely reversible. It lasts for approximately four to six months, and then re-treatment is recommended to keep your new, smooth appearance. BOTOX relaxes the underlying muscles that move the skin in expressions such as concentration, smiling and frowning, and when using computers.
