What is BOTOX®?

BOTOX is a specialized medicine, approved by the FDA, that is gently injected into the muscles of the face to improve fine lines and wrinkles. At Musial Dental Center, we are committed to helping your smile look its best, and utilizing BOTOX and other dermal fillers allows us to help you achieve a more radiant, youthful appearance to complete your smile transformation.

 

What is BOTOX used for?

While BOTOX is most often used for cosmetic reasons, it can also improve pain in the muscles of your jaw and those connected to your smile. The most commonly damaged muscle is in the temporomandibular joint (TMJ), which connects your lower jaw to your skull and helps you chew, speak, and yawn comfortably. When stressed or damaged, the TMJ can cause headaches, migraines, and facial pain. BOTOX helps relax these muscles to reduce tension and treat these symptoms. Dr. Valerie H. Musial, our knowledgeable dentist, has successfully completed the latest hands-on training offered by the American Academy of Facial Esthetics for TMJ and migraine therapy, as well as dermal filler and BOTOX treatments.
