Dr. Shayota can use BOTOX treatments to help complete your smile treatment. Clinically known as onabotulinumtoxinA, it is injected directly into the eyebrows or areas of the face to remove problems such as frown lines, crow’s feet and some wrinkles. This treatment can take years off of your appearance and give you renewed self-confidence. Normally, you will notice the effects around 24 hours after your visit, and you should plan on another treatment in about four months.

Along with its cosmetic uses, BOTOX also has clinical applications. It can also be used to relieve the symptoms of problems such as TMJ, teeth grinding and clenching, chronic migraines and even excessive sweating. In these cases, Dr. Shayota may inject the BOTOX into the areas around your jaws, neck or ears. Once injected, the BOTOX blocks the pain signals from the nerves to the muscles, providing you with temporary relief.

BOTOX treatments are done on an out-patient basis and require no surgery or stitches, but before the injections, you can request a local or topical anesthetic to ensure your comfort. You should be able to resume your normal activities as soon as you leave our office. Call our team today to see if these treatments are right for you.
