At Amedeo and Colonna, LTD., we are proud to offer our Park Ridge patients Botox® treatments to address any medical and aesthetic concerns they may have.
What is Botox®?
Botox® is the brand name of the botulinum toxin in its injectable form. This substance is produced by a bacteria species called Clostridium botulinum, which is responsible for botulism. This may sound concerning, but Botox® has been FDA-approved since 2002 and is an amazing solution for any cosmetic or medical issues you are concerned about.
How does Botox® Work?
Bernard Colonna DDS, Kevin Maloney DMD will make small injections of Botox® in areas around your face, lips and mouth. This toxin goes to targeted muscle groups and blocks chemical neurotransmitters from being released and paralyzes these muscle groups.
The effects of Botox typically last around 3-4 months, so we encourage you to schedule a regular treatment plan. Our team is here to assist you in creating a treatment plan that suits your needs.
How does Botox® benefit my appearance?
This minimally-invasive treatment is amazing for improving your appearance and also has medical benefits. As you age, you develop fine lines and wrinkles due to forming facial expressions over the years. Botox® helps relax those muscle groups that help you form those facial expressions, which helps smooth wrinkles that form around your eyes, cheeks and mouth.
From a medical standpoint, Botox® is a proven effective way to help relieve pain from temporomandibular joint disorder (TMJ) and help reduce symptoms from migraines and tension headaches you may be suffering from.
