Botox® and Dermal Fillers

Smiling Patient

These treatments can ease facial pain, as well as smooth away wrinkles around the eyes, mouth, and nose.

Myofacial pain is the medical term used to describe pain in the muscles of the face. Often this pain can be traced to night time grinding (Bruxism) or clenching. Botulinum toxin-A (more widely known by the brand name “Botox”) has emerged as a therapeutic treatment for certain types of myofacial pain. Your doctor will work with you to determine a diagnosis and treatment alternatives that may include the administration of Botox to specific muscles of the face using a fine needle in a nearly pain-free procedure.

Dermal fillers use a smooth gel to instantly smooth away wrinkles around your mouth and nose. Just one treatment can provide smooth and natural-looking results that can last up to a year.

BOTOX® Cosmetic is a prescription medicine that is injected into muscles and used to temporarily improve the look of moderate to severe frown lines between the eyebrows (glabellar lines) and around the side of the eyes (crow’s feet lines) in adults for a short period of time.
