7 Ways Botox Can Make Your Face and Jaw Look, Feel Better

You’ve probably heard about Botox. Maybe you’ve heard how it can be used for cosmetic purposes. Perhaps you’ve heard how it can help alleviate migraines or jaw pain. But do you know all the things it can do for you? 

Facial32 Dental Esthetics offers Botox services for cosmetic purposes, and the results we get are amazing! These services can get rid of crow’s feet, forehead lines, fine lines, wrinkles, and other signs of aging, making your face look younger.

What Is Botox?

Botox, also known as botulinum toxin, is injected into facial muscles to reduce muscle movement in that area temporarily. The reduction in muscle movement smooths the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. 

Botox Cosmetic injections begin to smooth wrinkles within 24-48 hours, but the best results come about 30 days after injections. How long does Botox last? The results can be seen for about four months. 

In addition to its cosmetic use, the treatment is also used to reduce pain associated with temporomandibular joint disorder (TMJ or TMD). It can even be used for medical purposes to relieve everything from excessive sweating to migraines.

Who Should Get a SWiCH Facial?

How Can Botox Help Me?

Botox can help you in many ways, from removing fine lines to reducing crow’s feet. Here are some of the ways we use it to treat you. 

Glabella Lines (Frown Lines)

These lines form between your eyebrows when you frown or squint. The treatment relaxes the muscles responsible for the lines, creating a smoother appearance between the eyebrows.

Forehead Lines

These horizontal lines spread across the forehead and can deepen over time. Botox relaxes the forehead muscles and reduces the appearance and depth of those lines.

Crow’s Feet

These fine lines form at the corners of the eyes when you squint or smile. Botox reduces the muscle movement at the edges of the eye, reducing the appearance of crow’s feet.

Bunny Lines

These lines start at the sides of the nose and move down and outward. They can be seen best when you scrunch your nose. Botox can smooth these lines.

Lip Lines

These lines around the lips move vertically away from the lip. They’re also called “smoker’s lines” or “lipstick lines.” Botox relaxes the muscles around the lips and smoothes out these fine lines. 

Dimpled Chin

Overactive chin muscles can cause the chin to dimple, sometimes called the “peach pit” look. Botox can reduce the appearance of chin dimples.

Jaw Contouring

Botox can tighten and contour the look of your jaw by helping relax the masseter muscles. This gives the jawline a slimmer, more contoured appearance.

Botox Can Be Used Medically

Facial32 Dental Esthetics uses Botox in these seven ways, but it can be used in other ways. The Food and Drug Administration has also approved it to treat chronic migraines in adults, which are defined as headaches lasting 15 or more days per month, with each headache lasting at least four hours. 

Injecting it every 12 weeks in specific areas of the head is said to help relieve migraine patients. The neurotoxin blocks the release of certain neurotransmitters that send pain signals. It is said to reduce the frequency and severity of attacks. 

It can also help with other disorders, including excessive sweating (hyperhidrosis) and certain muscle disorders. You can determine with your doctor to find out more ways to use it medically and how to get medical treatment with it. 

What Are the Side Effects of Botox Cosmetic?

Most patients experience little to no side effects from the injections. Those who experience side effects may have dry mouth, pain at the injection site, headache, fatigue, neck pain, double or blurred vision, decreased eyesight, dry eyes, or allergic reactions. You can read more about it on their website

Botox Aftercare

Botox needs little downtime or aftercare. Most patients resume their daily activities after treatment. 

Other recommendations: 

  • Do not lie down for 1-4 hours after getting treatment. 
  • Do not use a sauna, hot tub, or tanning booth for four hours
  • Don’t rub your face in the treated area or get a facial or massage for 24 hours afterward.
  • Don’t apply makeup because the rubbing may disperse the toxin and reduce the results.

It is a good idea to do facial exercises after Botox, such as smiling, frowning, and raising your eyebrows. But don’t raise your heart rate or exercise in a gym for at least 24 hours.
