Botox Q & A

What is Botox®?

Botox contains a substance that relaxes muscles in your face or jaw to reduce pain caused by TMJ or eliminate wrinkles associated with laughing, frowning, smiling, and other facial expressions.

Westchase Esthetic Family Dentistry also offers dermal fillers to further lessen signs of aging by adding volume to targeted areas of your face or lips. 

The team may combine Botox with fillers to match your beauty goals and provide superior results.

What are the benefits of Botox?

The benefits you can expect from Botox include:

  • Fewer lines and wrinkles
  • Tighter and smoother skin
  • Reduced TMJ-related jaw discomfort
  • Younger-looking appearance

Botox can also treat eye twitching and lazy eye. 

Dermal fillers available at Westchase Esthetic Family Dentistry enhance facial volume, plump your lips, and improve facial symmetry. Like Botox, dermal fillers also reduce facial lines associated with aging.

Is Botox right for me?

To find out if you’re a candidate for Botox, your Westchase Esthetic Family Dentistry provider asks about your medical history, symptoms, and desired results. They examine your face and jaw, looking for signs of TMJ. You might also need dental X-rays if you have jaw pain. Your dental specialist then personalizes a treatment plan that matches your goals.

What should I expect during Botox injections?

When receiving injections containing Botox or dermal fillers, you rest in a comfortable reclining dental chair. Your specialist may first numb the treatment area to make the procedure more comfortable. They inject Botox into strategic areas to relax muscles, reduce pain, and diminish unwanted signs of aging. The treatment is fast and painless and there is no downtime afterward.

What happens after my Botox treatment?

You can resume your normal routine immediately after Botox injections, though you may notice temporary redness and swelling at the site of the injections. 

Dermal filler results appear immediately, while the effects of Botox may take a day or two. Fillers often last 6-24 months or longer, and Botox lasts 3-4 months. Repeat injections offer long-lasting results.
