Therapeutic procedures focus on alleviating pain and discomfort caused by muscle contractions.
Botulinum toxin can be injected into the masseters and temporalis to reduce muscle pain felt in the jaw area, often caused by grinding and clenching. Injections can also be targeted at the frontalis to reduce pain from tension headaches or migraines.
Cosmetic Botox procedures focus on relaxing and softening the muscles used in facial expressions. By smoothing and softening lines, it can reduce wrinkles in between the eyebrows, forehead, “crow's feet” and even lift the eyebrows. All cosmetic procedures at the clinic are performed in the upper face.
Some cosmetic treatments can be considered therapeutic if they also relieve pain, like tension headaches.
