Enhancing Your Natural Beauty

We are proud to offer our patients the benefits of Botox® cosmetic injections. In a single appointment at Aya Zaky, DDS, you can achieve vibrant results such as a whitened smile, beautiful veneers, and straightened teeth. Men and women alike can enjoy the benefits of the procedures, and leave with a noticeable perk up in their appearance.

What is Botox®?

Botox® is a prescription medicine that is injected into the facial muscles. As we age, our skin begins to sag due to collagen production slowing down. This leads to the development of lines in the skin, particularly around the eyes. Botox® injections serve to block the nerve impulses in and around the injection sites, reducing the muscle activity that causes the lines to form.

Why Botox®?

Facial lines make you look tired or older than you are. There are a number of reasons to choose Botox® over other cosmetic options. There is no surgery, just a handful of injections. While there will be some discomfort after the treatment, the recovery time with Botox® is much quicker than many of the alternatives.

Relieve TMJ Symptoms Effectively with Botox®

At Aya Zaky DDS, we’re dedicated not just to your dental health, but to improving your overall comfort and quality of life. Many patients suffer from temporomandibular joint disorders (TMJ), experiencing symptoms like jaw pain, difficulty chewing, and headaches. We understand how disruptive these symptoms can be, and we’re here to offer a sophisticated, effective solution: Botox® therapy.

What is Botox® and How Does it Help with TMJ?

Botox® (Botulinum toxin) is commonly known for its aesthetic applications, but it’s also an FDA-approved treatment for various medical conditions, including TMJ disorders. Botox® works by temporarily relaxing the muscles around the jaw. This relaxation reduces the muscle tension that often exacerbates TMJ symptoms, providing relief from pain and discomfort. The injections are minimally invasive and can be administered in a quick visit to our office, with effects lasting up to several months.

Benefits of Botox® for TMJ at Aya Zaky DDS

  • Pain Relief: By easing muscle tension, Botox® significantly reduces jaw pain, headaches, and neck pain associated with TMJ.
  • Improved Function: Patients typically experience an improvement in jaw movement and find it easier to chew and speak.
  • Non-Surgical: Botox® offers a non-surgical alternative to more invasive treatments, making it an ideal choice for many patients.

Your Treatment Experience

During your consultation, Dr. Zaky will assess your TMJ symptoms and discuss whether Botox® is a suitable treatment option for you. If it’s right for your situation, Dr. Zaky will carefully administer the Botox® injections in specific areas around the jaw to maximize relief and effectiveness. The procedure is swift and requires no downtime, allowing you to return to your daily activities immediately.

What about my facial expressions?

Contrary to rumors, Botox® treatments only result in “frozen face syndrome” if they’re overdone, or done improperly. The injections will not radically change your facial appearance, just smooth out the lines. You’ll still be able to smile, frown, raise your eyebrows, and do everything you could before.

How long will the results from Botox® last?

Botox® treatments are temporary, which is something to keep in mind when planning your treatment with your cosmetician. Most treatments last for about four months, but individual results may vary. Dr. Zaky will discuss everything about the procedure with you and what you should expect.
