For years doctors have used Botox to treat a variety of medical and cosmetic conditions. Botox blocks the signals from the nerves to the muscles, making the injected muscle unable to move or contract. Doing so softens the surrounding tissue and smooths out wrinkles.
Though Botox injections are relatively simple to perform, they still require the expertise of a reputable doctor. Dr. Nancy Herbst of Union City Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery has experience treating patients with Botox. She and her team can help you get the results you seek.
Reasons for Botox
As previously mentioned, Botox is used to treat both medical and cosmetic conditions. Regardless of the reason, Dr. Nancy Herbst has seen great success when using Botox injections on her patients.
Dr. Herbst can use Botox to reduce moderate to severe wrinkles around the face in areas including:
- Frown lines
- Between the eyebrows
- Upper lip
- Crow’s feet
She also uses Botox to treat medical conditions such as:
- Migraine headaches
- Bruxism (tooth grinding)
- Facial pain syndromes
If you are considering Botox for any reason, contact Union City Oral Surgery to schedule a consultation. Our team can walk you through the process, go over payment options, and offer you additional advice regarding your health.
A Botox procedure does not require anesthesia and is typically over within a few minutes. After consulting with your doctor about your wishes for treatment, he or she can perform the procedure in no time at all.
Your doctor will inject Botox into specific muscles using a fine needle. There may be minor discomfort at first, but there is rarely any lasting pain after the procedure. Within one to two weeks your Botox should be in full effect.
