Botox and Dysport are the most popular cosmetic treatment in the world, and it’s not hard to see why. Botox® Cosmetic is effective on many common signs of aging: forehead wrinkles, crow’s feet, lipstick lines, and even turkey neck. It’s also a quick treatment, often taking just 20 minutes or less, depending on how many places you are having treated. It’s long-lasting, too, giving you about 3-4 months or more of results. And it’s safe—the safest cosmetic treatment being performed today. In addition to cosmetic treatment, Botox can be used to help treat TMJ and migraine or tension headaches.

How Botox & Dysport Works
Over a lifetime full of ups and downs, we get a lot of practice making a wide range of expressions, such as smiling, laughing, frowning, or scowling. Whatever our muscles practice a lot, they get conditioned. When this happens with our facial muscles, they stay contracted. They’re performing their part of an expression that you’ve made thousands of times in your life, but without the rest of the expression, crow’s feet are just wrinkles.
Botox For TMJ
The muscle relaxing properties of Botox also make it ideal to help treat TMJ and TMJ-related headaches. When habitually tight muscles are causing regular jaw pain or triggering headaches—even migraines—Botox injections can be used to relax the muscles to help relieve the pain. For some people, this is the best way to approach these types of headaches. Relaxing some of these habitually tight muscles can be very helpful in retraining them to function in a healthy way.
