Botox in Macon GA
A Non-Surgical Solution for Improved Health & Appearance
What is Botox?
Essentially, botox functions as an inhibitor, preventing facial muscles which allow your face to wrinkle or sag from doing so. We administer botox to help our patients with their oral facial aesthetics as well as pain associated with chewing or clenching at night. The pain from chewing or clenching could lead to chronic headaches. Botox is injected strategically into the masseter and the temporalis muscles to alleviate the pain. Some patients are even able to stop taking regular medications for managing their conditions as a result of botox use. When used appropriately, botox has the ability to reduce the impact of wrinkles, crow's feet, frown lines, and a gummy smile, which in turn causes your face to appear much younger. Although the treatment is not permanent, botox can be continued every 3-4 months as needed to maintain your youthful glow and experience relief from symptoms. Beyond the obvious cosmetic value, botox has greatly aided people suffering from medical conditions, such as recurring migraines, tmj, tmd, teeth grinding, lockjaw, eyelid spasms, crossed eyes, spasmodic dysphonia, hypersalivation, hyperhidrosis, bell's palsy, and hyperthyroidism. With an extensive list of benefits, botox can be an effective solution for many patients' appearances and physical health.
