WHAT IS BOTOX® COSMETIC?

A treatment experienced by millions of people

Approximately 10.9 million vials of BOTOX® Cosmetic have been sold in the United States since 2002, and millions of people have already made BOTOX® Cosmetic a part of what they do for themselves. Today, BOTOX® Cosmetic is the #1 selling product of its kind in the world.†

†Data collected through June 2014.

BOTOX® Cosmetic is the only approved treatment to temporarily improve the appearance of both moderate to severe frown lines between the brows and crow’s feet lines in adults.

A well-studied treatment

BOTOX® Cosmetic is one of the most extensively studied medical aesthetic treatments and is approved for cosmetic use in 78 countries.* BOTOX® Cosmetic has a record of experience that aesthetic specialists know and trust. And, the safety and efficacy of BOTOX® Cosmetic have been evaluated in both Allergan sponsored clinical trials as well as in 417 peer-reviewed articles in scientific and medical journals.

HOW DOES BOTOX®COSMETIC WORK?

For the frown lines area, your specialist will administer 5 injections into muscles in your forehead—1 in the procerus muscle and 4 in the corrugator muscles.

Injecting BOTOX® Cosmetic into the muscles that cause frown lines temporarily reduces the activity of those muscles. The result is a reduction in the appearance of those lines.

BOTOX® Cosmetic targets one of the underlying causes of frown lines and crow’s feet—the repeated muscle contractions from frowning and squinting over the years. Your specialist will inject these muscles with BOTOX® Cosmetic to temporarily reduce muscle activity. You will begin to notice a visible smoothing of your crow’s feet lines and frown lines between your brows.

Wrinkles result from a combination of many factors. It’s not just about cellular changes that can occur over time, reduction of collagen, or damage caused by free radicals in the sun and the environment. When you frown or concentrate, the muscles between your brows contract, causing your skin to furrow and fold. And when you squint, the muscles around your eyes contract and cause crow’s feet.

BOTOX® Cosmetic works beneath the skin’s surface and targets the underlying muscle activity that causes frown lines and crow’s feet.

For the frown lines area, your specialist will administer 5 injections into muscles in your forehead—1 in the procerus muscle and 4 in the corrugator muscles.

Injecting BOTOX® Cosmetic into the muscles that cause frown lines temporarily reduces the activity of those muscles. The result is a reduction in the appearance of those lines.

For the crow’s feet area, your specialist will inject 3 areas of the orbicularis oculi, the muscle that frames the side of the eye. This will be repeated on the orbicularis oculi muscle on the other eye.

Injecting BOTOX® Cosmetic into the muscles that cause crow’s feet lines temporarily reduces the activity of those muscles. The result is a reduction in the appearance of those lines.


BOTOX For TMD, TMJ & Migraine Headaches

TMD vs TMJ:

Temporomandibular Disorder (TMD) pertains to symptoms with your Jaw and facial
 muscles caused by the Temporomandibular joint (TMJ).

The Temporomandibular joint is one of the most complex in the entire body; allowing you to move your jaw up and down, as well as side to side; providing the ability to 
talk, chew and yawn.


Symptoms

TMJ disorders have many signs and symptoms. Some of these Include:


  • Migraines and chronic headaches,
  • Earaches as well as pain or pressure behind your eyes.

  • Clicking or popping while opening or closing your mouth.

  • Pain brought on by yawning, chewing or opening your mouth widely.

  • Jaws that “get stuck”, lock or go out.

  • Tenderness of the Jaw muscles.

  • Change in the way your upper and lower teeth fit together.


Causes

Some commons causes of TMD are clenching or grinding teeth as well as Day to Day stress.



Botox Treatment

Treatment helps stop muscle contraction but aslo relieves pain by preventing nerves from releasing inflammatory molecules.

Inactivates the nerve endings that cause mucles to contract, eliminating involuntary contractions in the jaw (like when sleeping or stressed).
