BOTOX® (onabotulinumtoxinA) is an injectable medicine that is used to smooth wrinkles, frown lines, creases, and crow’s feet. BOTOX is the only approved treatment to temporarily improve the appearance of moderate to severe frown lines and crow’s feet lines. When injected by a trained specialist, BOTOX can help you to look younger and rejuvenated.
Dr. Clint Baugham often recommends BOTOX treatment to help patients regain a more youthful appearance and boost self-confidence. Botox can also be used to reduce migraine headaches, lessen excessive sweating, or treat pain at the temporomandibular joint or TMJ.
How does BOTOX work?
BOTOX is injected into the muscles to prevent or limit contracting. Treatment reduces the appearance of wrinkles and temporarily blocks singles from the nerves. This is especially important when treating TMJ.
Are BOTOX treatments painful?
BOTOX injections are routine and may be performed without much pain or discomfort. Oftentimes, we use ice or a topical numbing cream before each application. There are no incisions, stitches, or surgery, and you can resume your daily routine directly following your appointment with us.
How long does BOTOX last?
Many patients notice results as soon as 24 to 48 hours after the treatment. Results vary, but some patients state that BOTOX treatments can last up to four months.
