Dr. Joe Jeppson may recommend BOTOX® treatment in Provo, UT, to improve your appearance as well as your quality of life. BOTOX is a highly versatile solution for cosmetic concerns, such as fine lines and wrinkles, and for medication conditions such as TMJ disorders and headaches.

Understanding What BOTOX is

When provided for cosmetic purposes, BOTOX works by temporarily paralyzing the muscles that contribute to the formation of lines and wrinkles, particularly in the forehead and around the eyes. This non-invasive procedure can smooth the skin, resulting in a more youthful and refreshed appearance. You can expect to see the full results of this treatment within a week, and for your results to last between three and six months.

When provided for therapeutic purposes, BOTOX offers relief to patients suffering from TMJ disorders and headaches, including migraines. TMJ disorders can cause pain and discomfort in the jaw joint and muscles that control jaw movement. By injecting BOTOX into specific muscles, our dentist can reduce muscle tension, thereby alleviating pain, improving jaw movement, and decreasing the frequency and intensity of your headaches. This approach provides a significant benefit for patients who have not found relief through more conventional treatment options.

The BOTOX Procedure

BOTOX is a quick and comfortable procedure – the medication is simply injected into the treatment area where it can begin to work for you. As it is a completely noninvasive treatment you will be able to return to your regular activities as soon as you leave Jeppson Dental.
