What is Botox?

Botox is an FDA-approved cosmetic treatment that effectively, safely, and temporarily reduces the signs of aging. The Botox injectable is a neurotoxin protein. It acts on nerve signals and helps temporarily freeze the facial muscles. Because Botox relaxes the facial muscles, it can treat the muscles that contract and create wrinkles.

Botox can lessen the appearance of many types of facial wrinkles. We can treat crow’s feet, lipstick lines, and laugh lines with Botox. Botox treatment can address wrinkles in the forehead, chin, and neck. This treatment can also address wrinkles around the eyes, nose, eyebrows, and lips. Dr. Adam’s patients can enjoy the convenience of receiving their 6-month Botox injections during their routine dental health exams.

Beyond Beauty: Botox for Bruxism and Gummy Smiles

Botox Therapeutic is a successful treatment that helps relieve patients from the painful and often debilitating symptoms of bruxism and TMJ pain. Temporomandibular joint disorders (TMD) create painful symptoms. Pain and pressure in the temporomandibular joints can spread throughout the face. Many patients with TMJ disorders experience chronic headaches, jaw pain, and bruxism. Bruxism, or teeth clenching and grinding, is a common and painful symptom that patients often experience unconsciously.

To counteract TMJ pain, we can inject Botox deep into the facial muscles, which also helps release tension in the jaw joints. When the muscles are relaxed, they repair themselves. Patients enjoy the temporary relief of painful facial pain and headaches from TMD.

Botox can also improve the appearance and contour of healthy gums. Patients who have a “gummy smile” can use Botox to reduce the appearance of their gum line or to reduce papilla. Excessive gum tissue can cover the natural teeth and create a gummy-looking smile.

Dr. Adams will first inject Botox into the upper lip when treating a gummy smile. Then, she will inject Botox between the nose and upper lip. Relaxing the upper lip prevents contraction, reducing the look of a gummy smile.

Like cosmetic uses for Botox, it is safe to receive Botox injections about every six months. Patients may also enjoy the convenience of receiving their Botox treatment during their routine dental check-ups. Dr. Adams’ comfortable, state-of-the-art dental office provides the perfect environment. Patients can sit back, relax, and enjoy the benefits of comprehensive oral health care.

Botox® Treatment in Rogers, AR

Dr. Adams will always perform a thorough cosmetic consultation and facial analysis before Botox treatment. She will determine the Botox dosage and where to place the injections for the best results. Botox treatments are tailored to your unique cosmetic goals and overall physical health.

To begin treatment, Dr. Adams will numb the treated area. Once comfortable, Dr. Adams gently inserts the injections into the targeted areas of the face. Patients may experience a slight pinching sensation but generally report little to no discomfort. Some minor swelling or light bruising is typical and fades within a day or so after treatment.

To minimize swelling and pain, we recommend that patients avoid exercise, smoking, or drinking alcohol directly after treatment. Patients should not touch or rub their face for 24 hours after Botox. It’s best to avoid topical products, lotions, or skincare. However, facial exercises can help Botox injections penetrate the facial muscles.

Botox results last for about six months or more after treatment. Results will fade gradually and can be boosted with additional treatments. Patients who use Botox for headaches or orofacial pain may receive treatment more frequently for optimal results.

Dr. Adams will discuss treatment plans with patients before beginning a Botox schedule. She can monitor the results and work with you to provide touchups or a new schedule of injections during routine dental visits.

Botox® FAQs

If you’re new to Botox, you may have more questions about treatment. Learn more about Botox with answers to these frequently asked questions:

Is Botox right for me?

Most patients qualify for Botox treatment for cosmetic concerns. Dr. Adams will take a thorough medical history and talk to you about the pros and cons of Botox treatment so that you fully understand your procedure.

Can Botox treat TMJ disorders?

For some patients, therapeutic Botox treatments can be beneficial for temporarily relieving the painful symptoms of TMJ. Botox can help patients who experience tense facial muscles, headaches, or chronic jaw pain. Many patients often report feeling relief for up to 6 months after treatment.

How much does Botox cost?

Botox is a prescription injection charged by the amount used during treatment. Dr. Adams will discuss pricing and your total cost during your personalized consultation.

What happens when Botox wears off?

As Botox wears off, it turns into natural compounds called amino acids. The Botox protein is safely expelled from the body. Muscles injected with Botox will move again as they are unaffected by the neurotoxin. You will also notice your treated wrinkles return. When you see these wrinkles, it’s time for a touchup in our office.
