What is BOTOX?

BOTOX in Jacksonville

Approved by the FDA, BOTOX is a form of facial esthetic treatment that not only temporarily freezes facial muscles to prevent wrinkles but also creates a more pleasant and enjoyable way of life when living with TMJ.

BOTOX is derived from botulinum toxin, which is a bacterium that is diluted for medical purposes. The solution is injected into various areas of the facial skin, allowing patients to look and feel younger. It also creates a less painful jaw movement.

Who is a Good Candidate for BOTOX?

If you are considering BOTOX, you’ll first need to schedule a consultation with your cosmetic dentist in Jacksonville. Making sure your overall health is in check is necessary to avoid any potential complications or issues.

It is advised that individuals who are in their mid-20s or younger do not receive BOTOX, as it could potentially cause problems if development is not complete. Also, those taking certain medications should be evaluated before receiving BOTOX, as it may have a negative interaction.

Once you meet with our team, we will go over your problem areas and determine if BOTOX is right for you. If you suffer from any of the following, there’s a good chance you’ll qualify for injections:

  • Temporomandibular joint dysfunction (TMD)
  • Glabellar lines (vertical lines between the eyebrows)
  • Crow’s feet
  • Vertical lines around the lips
  • Forehead lines and wrinkles
  • Horizontal lines across the forehead
