How it Works

Botox belongs to a category of cosmetic injectables known as neuromodulators. It’s composed of a neurotoxin protein called botulinum toxin type A, which blocks communication between specific nerves and muscles. Dynamic wrinkles, such as frown lines and forehead lines, appear because of the overuse of certain facial muscles to convey emotions, such as laughing and frowning. Botox essentially paralyzes the targeted facial muscles, softening the associated expression lines and making you look younger and more refreshed.

Botox in Dayton can also help you prevent wrinkles. Dynamic wrinkles appear when the overuse of certain facial muscles leads to permanent creases that stay on your face even at rest. If you start Botox treatments at an early age, you can prevent the overuse of facial muscles, thereby preventing expression lines or delaying their onset. However, Botox results only last for 3 to 4 months because your body eventually metabolizes the neurotoxin protein, so you need maintenance treatments.

Other Botox Uses

Alleviating Migraine Headaches

Botox is FDA-approved to treat or alleviate headaches for adults with chronic migraines. Botox is injected into targeted areas on both sides of the head and neck. It blocks the neurotransmitters that carry the pain signals into your brain, thus blocking the chemicals responsible for your headaches. Patients with migraines generally need Botox injections once every 12 weeks to minimize headaches.

TMJ Treatment

Our Dayton Botox is a suitable treatment for TMJ (temporomandibular joint) disorders, which leads to jaw pain and tension. TMD occurs when the joints on either side of the head are overactive, leading to extreme jaw tension. Botox temporarily reduces unconscious jaw clenching and movements, thereby alleviating jaw tension and pain. Most patients start seeing results within 3 days, with continued improvements for 2 weeks.

Hyperhidrosis Treatment

Botox is FDA-approved to treat underarm hyperhidrosis. When injected into targeted regions in the underarms, the neurotoxin protein blocks communication between the sweat glands and the nerve endings that facilitate and cause sweating. This prevents you from sweating uncomfortably at inopportune moments, such as in professional settings and social engagements. The results gradually appear over two weeks and last for 3 to 4 months.
