Even though Botox® is mostly known for smoothing the look of wrinkles, its original use was for the treatment of medical conditions. At Brite Dental Spa in Midtown West, Manhattan, an oral surgeon administers all Botox procedures for cosmetic and medical uses to ensure you get the best treatment possible.

Botox is an injectable treatment that has a wide range of uses. Each vial contains botulinum toxin, which is where the name Botox derives from. The treatment temporarily paralyzes the targeted area of your muscle with small, injected doses.
Before your procedure begins at Brite Dental Spa, the oral surgeon sits down with you to talk about your overall desired outcome. They can then administer your Botox injections with expert precision and care, targeting specific muscles while avoiding the surrounding areas.
For cosmetic support, the goal is to give you a younger look without appearing frozen.
When Botox is to treat issues needing medical attention, the oral surgeon has the expertise and experience to give injections for you to get a successful outcome.
Brite Dental Spa uses Botox for cosmetics and medical reasons. In addition to treating wrinkles, crow’s feet, forehead lines, and frown lines, Botox can help:
Botox can reduce the intensity and frequency of chronic migraines with regular injections.
When your dentist injects Botox into the surrounding area of your jaw, it helps relieve the contractions in your muscles and can give you relief for up to four months.
Botox can relieve your teeth grinding and jaw clenching to help you avoid the development of other serious oral health issues.
When you suffer from myofascial pain as a result of TMJ, Botox can relax the muscles around your jaw to relieve your discomfort and eliminate headaches or pain caused by jaw muscle tension.
After Botox treatment, on average, you should see results in three to seven days. It takes some time for your targeted areas to recover and adjust to the Botox. You might also experience some slight bruising during your healing time, but that’s normal, so there’s no reason to be alarmed.
Within a week, you should notice the benefits of Botox.
Botox injections are not a permanent fix. For example, after about four months, you might see your crow’s feet start to reappear, or you may experience jaw pain again. Over time, your body’s absorption of the Botox eliminates its effect.
If you like the results of your injections, Brite Dental Spa can give you another round of treatment. As you notice how long the treatment works for you, you can schedule regular follow-up appointments ahead of time to maintain the positive effects you’re experiencing.
