Botox and Xeomin have been proven effective and FDA approved for use in the treatment of recurring headaches, often related to TMJ disorders and muscle tension. For many suffering with chronic headaches and migraines, Botox may provide relief from daily pain and restore an improved quality of life.
Botox and Xeomin can also be an effective treatment option for TMJ related muscled tension that can cause a range of painful symptoms, including headaches and jaw tension/pain. Dr. Greenaway will perform a thorough and comprehensive evaluation of your oral health and your symptoms and determine if this therapy would work for you.
“Gummy” smiles can also be treated with Botox and/or Xeomin. A tiny amount injected in the muscles that lift the upper lift provide an amazing result with no Surgery!
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.
Dr. Greenaway also uses Botox and Xeomin to treat areas around the eyes and the wrinkles between the eyebrows and on the forehead.
Botox injections are quick, relatively painless and can last 3-6 months. Dr. Greenaway is AAFE (American Academy of Facial Esthetics) trained and current member.
