Neuromodulators (Botox)

You can’t hop in a time machine to relive your 20’s… but you can visit our Tampa or New Port Richey offices for Botox that makes you look and feel like you’re in your 20’s again!

Botox is highly effective for therapeutic and aesthetic treatments, such as:

What is Botox?

Botox works by blocking the nerve signals that tell the muscles to contract. (These muscle contractions are to blame for facial wrinkles, TMJ syndrome, teeth grinding and similarly undesirable conditions.) When the muscle is injected with Botox, the muscles relax, and they don’t contract or flex as they usually would. By blocking these nerve signals, Botox treats the source of these symptoms to eradicate related aches and discomfort!

Therapeutic Treatments

Botox for Teeth Grinding and Jaw Clenching

If you’ve experienced the discomfort of headaches caused by grinding teeth or clenching jaws, you’ll be happy to know that we can help provide relief for you through Botox!

Our doctors strategically inject Botox treatments in specific areas of the jaw to relax those muscles. When these muscles are relaxed, they won’t clench, grind or react to stress as they did prior to treatment. With regular Botox injections, you can stop clenching and grinding your teeth!

Botox for TMJ Syndrome

TMJ syndrome, characterized by pain and discomfort in the temporomandibular (jaw) joint, causes aching in the face and jaw, as well as difficulty opening and closing the mouth. Botox targets the source of these unpleasant symptoms by inhibiting the muscle’s tendency to contract. Not only can Botox treat TMJ syndrome, but many people who use Botox for TMJ syndrome notice a more appealing jawline after treatment too!

Botox for Migraines

When Botox is injected around the head and neck, it blocks the nerve signals that tell your brain to perceive painful headaches or migraines. Many people experience dramatic relief from chronic headaches and migraines with regular Botox treatments!

Aesthetic Treatments

Botox for Gummy Smile

Botox effectively treats “gummy smiles” by reducing excessive lip elevation. During the Botox procedure, the toxin is injected directly into the “elevator” muscle of the upper lip, which weakens the muscle’s ability to contract, or raise up too high, when smiling, thus preventing the over exposure of gum line.

Does Botox make you look younger?

Botox is considerably effective at reducing fine lines and wrinkles, smoothing the skin, and improving the overall appearance of the face without the need for surgery. They are a popular option for rejuvenating the appearance of the face and creating a healthier, fuller look!

When we inject Botox into areas of the face affected by wrinkles, smile lines, eyebrow lines, forehead lines, age lines or crow’s feet, the facial muscles relax, causing undesirable lines to smoothen out and temporarily disappear. Botox is often administered to the cheeks and lips to attain a person’s desired appearance. These treatments can be used to plump the lips, contour the cheeks, and reduce or completely eliminate wrinkles. Botox causes the skin and facial structure to appear fresher, younger, tighter and smoother!

Botox for the First Time? Here’s What to Expect!

To create your personalized treatment plan, we will discuss your goals with you and help you understand the benefits of all our treatment options. Our highly-qualified doctors will determine the appropriate doses of Botox to satisfy your needs. After we create your personalized treatment plan with Botox, your treatments will only take minutes to administer and anywhere from 7 to 14 days to show complete effects. It is recommended that patients visit us every 3 to 4 months to ensure effective treatments and to prevent symptoms (such as undesirable wrinkles or unpleasant muscle contractions) from resurfacing.

If you, a friend or family member experiences migraines, tension headaches, clenching and grinding or TMJ syndrome, Botox can help you find relief! Or if you’re ready to improve your appearance, reduce wrinkles or create fuller facial features, Botox treatments can help you achieve the look you’ve always desired.
