How Does It Work?
Botox® Cosmetic is a neurotoxin that is injected into muscle tissue, but acts upon the nerve impulses affecting the action of the muscle. Botox works to relax the treated muscle, allowing tension to be released and/or the skin to become smoother.
Botox injections are quick, relatively painless and can last for up to 6 months or more. Dr. Amy can provide follow up treatments as needed and work with you to manage symptoms when using Botox to treat headaches and TMJ related concerns.
