Botox Treatment in Blackfalds

Looking your best helps you feel your best. This is why many people choose to receive Botox injections. This treatment effectively eliminates wrinkles and fine lines, which will help improve your overall appearance.

Dentists can administer this service to patients upon completing the proper training. The staff here at our dental practice is able to provide this treatment, so if you’re looking to learn more, please contact us.


How Botox Works

According to your needs, Botox can be used for cosmetic and medicinal purposes. The injections are a purified form of the botulinum toxin. The U.S. Food and Drug Administrative (FDA) has approved this treatment and deemed it safe for patients to receive it in appropriate settings and by certified professionals.

The unique chemicals in Botox interact with the nerves in your muscles, temporarily freezing them, which, in turn, prevents them contracting. When your muscles don’t contract, they relax instead, and as a result, those pesky lines and wrinkles disappear.

What Botox Can Treat

Listed below are some of the many issues that Botox injections can help manage or prevent:

  • Crow’s feet
  • Forehead lines 
  • TMJ pain 
  • Lazy eye 
  • Excessive sweating 
  • Headaches/migraines 
  • Overactive bladder

TMJ and Botox

TMJ stands for temporomandibular joint. This joint is found on either side of your face and connects the lower portion of your skull. It helps you move your jaw freely to eat and speak.

When your joint gets damaged, it can lead to oral and general pain. Fortunately, Botox can help remedy this condition by helping your muscles to relax, alleviating pain along your jaw, down your neck, and in other neighboring areas of your body.

The results of Botox are not permanent; on average, they last three months, after which you’ll need to come back for another treatment.

If you have any queries or concerns about Botox, the steps involved in the process, or whether you’re a good candidate for this treatment, contact a dentist or Botox provider near you.
