HOW DOES BOTOX REMOVE WRINKLES?

It’s really quite simple. BOTOX® utilizes a natural, purified protein that is administered at very low doses to reduce the contractions of wrinkle-causing muscles. Most typically these are the muscles on your forehead and the little corrugator muscles between your eyebrows. These muscles get in the habit of staying contracted and are the ones that can cause you to look perpetually worried or angry.

Beyond the Frown – BOTOX® Can Make Many Changes

BOTOX® Cosmetic is also a great wrinkles minimizer for crow’s feet and, if you have them, those little crinkly bunny lines on your nose. Another common use is for relaxing the platysma muscles in your neck to soften the vertical bands that start showing up as you get a little older.Newer uses include:

  • Relaxing the downward pull on the corners of the mouth
  • Softening the pebble-like chin contractions some of us unconsciously seem to adopt and in some cases, can even be used to relax the lines under the eyes.

A chemical brow lift or brow balance with a few strategic injections​While the results are dramatic, you don’t have to radically change your facial appearance. The muscles are simply relaxed, so you can still frown, smile, or look surprised without the wrinkles and creases.

What Areas Can Be Treated with BOTOX® Cosmetic?

  • Between your brows
  • Forehead
  • Eye area
  • Smile lines
  • Mouth
  • Chin
  • Neck
  • Masseter (jaw) muscle

What Is BOTOX® Treatment Like?

BOTOX® Cosmetic procedures are quick with no anesthesia required. Injections are administered with an ultra-fine needle directly into the area being treated. Discomfort is minimal and brief, and once complete, there is usually no discomfort.If you’re like most patients, you’ll return directly to work or normal activity immediately. We’ll use a cold balloon to apply to your injected area to help soothe. Most people are very surprised the first time to see just how quickly and comfortably BOTOX® Cosmeitc can be injected. There’s nothing to be afraid of.If you’ve had BOTOX® in the past at another office and had any unexpected side effects, please let us know so Dr. Kaushesh can make the necessary adjustments to your dosage and/or injection placement.

What is BOTOX© and how does it work?

BOTOX© is the brand name of a botulinum neurotoxin, and while this sounds a bit scary it is actually an all-natural purified protein approved by the Food and Drug Association. Since 2002, BOTOX© has been used as a cosmetic treatment that eliminated wrinkles, crow’s feet, and frown lines on the forehead. It’s also used to treat a few different medical conditions.

BOTOX© can also relax platysma muscles in your neck, softening the unsightly vertical bands that appear with age. Other common benefits to our Scottsdale BOTOX© treatments include:

  • Relaxing the downward pull on the corners of the mouth that can make you look unhappy.

  • Softening of the pebble-like chin contractions some people unconsciously acquire.

  • Relaxing of lines that appear under the eyes.

  • Lifting or balancing the brow chemically (may take multiple treatments).

One of the key benefits to BOTOX© is that you get dramatic results without any major changes to your facial appearance. All Scottsdale BOTOX© treatments do is relax your muscles. You can still smile, frown, and show every other facial expression naturally, just without the wrinkles and creases associated with age.

Our Scottsdale BOTOX© treatments can be performed in a number of locations that are prone to wrinkles. These include:

  • Between your brows
  • On the forehead
  • Around the eyes
  • Smile lines
  • Mouth
  • Chin
  • Neck
  • Jaw muscle (masseter)

Our Scottsdale BOTOX© specialist has thousands of hours of experience delivering injections capable of correcting facial volume loss and asymmetries in the face. BOTOX© treatments may also be combined with volume replacement treatments and dermal wrinkle fillers for more dramatic results.

Understanding Scottsdale fillers and what they can do to make you look and feel better

Dermal fillers are also called facial fillers, and they are used to reduce or eliminate signs of aging in and around the face. Fillers and BOTOX© are often confused but they are quite different, and the former have been growing in popularity during recent years. BOTOX© works by relaxing muscles in the face that cause wrinkles, but fillers actually stimulate collagen growth.

When the collagen grows it “fills” the wrinkles in the face, which is what gives these products their name. The problem areas are filled with collagen, which also causes the face to plump and the skin to lift. Our Scottsdale fillers can eliminate many of the signs associated with aging caused by collagen depletion.

Just some of the benefits that come from using our Scottsdale fillers include:

  • Fuller lips
  • Softening of wrinkles and creases on the face
  • The ability to reconstruct uneven contours on the face
  • Eliminate shadows of the lower eyelids
  • Improve the appearance of scars

Another benefit of fillers is that they can last a long time. While BOTOX© treatment can last up to 6 months before wrinkles begin to reappear, dermal fillers can last up to 5 years (semi-permanent and permanent fillers). Other varieties of dermal fillers may last anywhere from 6 months to 2 years, so be sure to talk to our Scottsdale fillers specialist about your options.

Should I choose Scottsdale fillers treatment or BOTOX© treatments

It depends. If you have dynamic wrinkles, which are wrinkles that appear when you make facial expressions or laugh, then BOTOX© likely offers a more fulfilling option. Dermal fillers are often better for wrinkles that appear when the face is at rest.

These are just basic guidelines and every patient is different. When you first come in to our clinic to discuss your options, you will benefit from our expert’s extensive experience. Other factors may come into play, like potential allergies to various fillers. Obviously, the goal is to return to a more youthful appearance, so we will take our time to consider all variables and fully discuss your options.

BOTOX® for Jaw Tension and TMJ

For TMJ disorders and jaw aches and pain, Botox can be a great match. We have shown Botox to work for many patients who have soreness and discomfort. These easy and almost painless injections also eliminate any headaches that might be caused by stressful grinding of the teeth or Bruxism. We often see people who have locked jaw or very hard to open jaws get relief from Botox.

The way Botox works on TMJ and Jaw tension

Temporomandibular or TMJ joint is one of the most complex in the entire body.  Without it and its muscles, tendons and cartilage, we wouldn’t be able to be human. Movement of the jaw helps us not only speak and eat, but swallow efficiently as well. It is a halfway ball-and-socket kind of joint – your jaw making the ball and part of the curved area near the ear making a semi circular socket.

The muscles that help the TMJ move are:

  • Temporalis muscles- originating on the side of the skull helping the jaw move up (elevate and retract)
  • Masseater muscle – the muscles that is on the outside of the jaw near the angle that helps us move the jaw up as well (retract)
  • Lateral Ptyregoid muscles attaching TMJ to the lower jaw that helps the jaw move in the opposite direction side to side
  • Medial Ptyrygoid Muscles, attaching on the inside of the jaw, helping the bones elevate.

Botox helps these muscles relax and not get activated unconsciously because when humans clench and grind their jaws when they are not aware of it. Most of us grind and clench our teeth at night during sleep in order to relieve our stress. When these muscles get relaxed, the grinding and clenching is greatly reduced or eliminated by Botox therapy.

How long does it take to administer BOTOX® Therapy?

BOTOX® therapy has been voted as one of the easiest to endure. Usually, if administering BOTOX® therapy for the face muscles, forehead and eyes area, the therapy usually takes approximately 20-30 minutes. TMJ therapy can add another 15-20 minutes. It is administered in a relaxed setting and is one of the only therapies where a patient can choose to sit comfortably almost anywhere in the office.

Is BOTOX® Therapy Painful?

BOTOX® therapy is surprisingly easy to tolerate for most patients. It is compared to a little less discomfort than when experienced from blood being drawn. Anesthetic creams or cold packs also help before the treatment.

At Serenity, after many years and thousands of patients, we have never seen tears, heard cries or complaints about BOTOX® causing pain. Most people are smiling at the doctor through injections.  Our injections are given through a very thin acupuncture-like syringe to minimize discomfort.

How Fast can I expect BOTOX® to work?

Results appear within 48 hours but may take a week to fully take effect. We recommend an appointment in one week time for any touch-ups.

Will I be able to function and go to work after BOTOX® treatment?

Some people get a bit of bruising and swelling. A little redness is common. You are discouraged from wearing any hats or headbands or safety glasses that have bands for work. Besides that, most people are able to go to work within an hour after treatment. If you work in the beauty industry, you are discouraged from using makeup for 24 hours. No other aesthetic therapies, such as laser or hair transplants, are allowed for at least a week.

What are the side effects of BOTOX® therapy?

We encourage you to visit the Allergen website for BOTOX® brochure that explains the drug in great detail.

A few things to consider 

If you’ve ever had BOTOX© injections at another doctor’s office and experienced any unwanted side effects, be sure to let us know. Usually an adjustment in the dosage can eliminate these kinds of problems.

Keep in mind that BOTOX© injection are considered highly safe and risks are few. However, injections must be placed properly and at the correct dosage, otherwise side effects like droopy eye, drooling, or trouble breathing, among others could manifest. This is why your choice of clinic truly matters. Our Scottsdale BOTOX© specialist has performed thousands of injections, and will ensure proper needle placement and dosage.
