Botox

Botox is used to treat various medical conditions that include muscle spasms in the face or other localized areas, twitching of the eyelid (blepharospasm), muscle spasticity, muscle spasms in the neck (cervical dystonia) and proper alignment of the eyes (strabismus). It is also used to reduce excessive underarm sweating. In cosmetic treatments it is used to treat the vertical frown lines, crows feet, horizontal lines at the forehead and wrinkles.
Increasingly, Botox is used as an alternative treatment for TMJ (temporomandibular joint) disorders and associated jaw tension and pain. When injected into facial muscles afflicted with soreness and discomfort, Botox relieves TMJ and jaw tension for many patients. The injections often eliminate headaches resulting from teeth grinding, and, in cases of severe stress, Botox can even minimize lockjaw. Although Botox treatment for these conditions is currently experimental, evidence indicates that it can be extremely effective.

Non-Surgical procedures with quick results

The Botox alternative treatment for TMJ disorders and jaw tension is usually quick, straightforward, and effective. As a nonsurgical procedure, Botox injections are administered in a doctor’s office, and treatment requires no hospital stay. Most patients experience noticeable improvement within one or two days of their first treatment, although relief can take up to one week.

How Safe Are Botox Injections

When administered by medical professionals with a lot of experience in the treatment, the Botox injections are quite safe. There are some mild and temporary side effects that are associated with the treatment. These include pain, bruising and tenderness around where the injection was administered. It is common for most people to experience a slight headache right after the treatment is administered. Others also experience nausea and flu syndromes. One of the significant side effects of the treatment is the risk of a drooping eye for a few days. Women who are pregnant or breastfeeding should avoid this treatment. Just like other medical treatments, there are benefits and side effects that come with this treatment.

Juvederm

Juvederm Plus Injectable gel temporarily adds volume to facial tissue and restores a smoother appearance to the face. It is injected into areas of facial tissue where moderate to severe wrinkles and folds occur. Juvederm is the only hyaluronic acid (HA) filler FDA approved to last up to 1 year. It also works to create a smooth consistency gel that flows easily into the skin and provides a smooth, natural look and feel. Also, Juvederm is the first hyaluronic acid dermal filler that has demonstrated its safety and effectiveness in persons of color.

Smooth out wrinkles

Juvederm Ultra and Juvederm Ultra Plus are for injection into the mid to deep dermis (below the outer layer of skin) for the correction of moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, such as nasal labial folds. These folds are the creases running from the bottom of your nose to the corners of your mouth. They are commonly known as smile lines or parentheses.

Most side effects are mild or moderate in nature, and their duration is short lasting (7 days or less). The most common side effects include, but are not limited to, temporary injection site reactions such as redness, pain/tenderness, firmness, swelling, lumps/bumps, bruising, itching and discoloration. As with all skin injection procedures there is a risk of infection

Before your treatment, avoid taking aspirin or ibuprofen both of which can increase bleeding or bruising at the injection site. Immediately after treatment please refrain from vigorous exercise until the following day. Other than that you can return to your normal activities.
