At Western Pennsylvania Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery, we offer more than just advanced surgical procedures and can help patients look their best with restorative cosmetic BOTOX®. If your face is starting to show fine lines or wrinkles, BOTOX is a common and effective solution to smooth out your skin. After treatments, patients look years younger with smooth, youthful, supple skin. Wrinkles and lines appear in your skin naturally as you age but also when your muscles become overworked. Imagine when you repeatedly fold clothes, lines will form, and the same occurs in your facial skin as you make expressions or go about everyday activities. To get rid of these lines, you will have to stop folding the clothes, or skin, as frequently. BOTOX helps prevent overuse of your facial muscles and skin, thus reducing the visibility of these lines and wrinkles.
BOTOX is an FDA-approved dermal filler that uses botulinum toxin to temporarily prevent muscles from moving. Our oral surgeon, Dr. Allison Burner, are trained in the application of BOTOX and can help you gain a more youthful appearance. When applying BOTOX, we will inject it just under the skin to relax the muscles from overworking. This prevents the muscles from contracting excessively, which helps smooth out the skin. Additionally, BOTOX can be used to relax your jaw joint or other facial muscles to relieve painful symptoms of TMJ disorder, excessive clenching and grinding of teeth or end migraines. BOTOX injections typically last around 3-4 months before another dosage may be required.
