BOTOX COSMETIC and BOTOX Therapeutic treatments at Ivory Dental

BOTOX COSMETIC treatment (onabotulinumtoxinA) is an injectable way to temporarily treat facial wrinkles. It works by stopping the facial muscles from contracting.

BOTOX Therapeutic treatments can also be used to relieve the pain and treat the symptoms of Temporomandibular Joint Syndrome (TMJ).

The temporomandibular joint connects the jaw to the skull. It is as well responsible for lower jaw movements. When injured or damaged, it can lead to a disorder called TMJ syndrome.

BOTOX Therapeutic treatments can be injected directly into the chewing (masseter and temporalis) muscles. It relaxes muscles and reduces tension and pain in the jaw area.

Preparing for BOTOX COSMETIC or BOTOX Therapeutic Treatment Consultation

For your first visit, list down a set of questions to ask your Lethbridge dentist. This way, you won’t forget anything. Inquire about the cost of the treatment and if it can be covered by your medical insurance. You can as well discuss with your dentist the pros and cons of getting the treatment.

As with any dental procedure, it’s important to be open about your medical history. Notify your dentist about any medications you’re taking. Be honest as well about other dental procedure or surgery you have recently had. This will help your dentist decide whether the procedure is right for you.

Common Causes of Wrinkles


Smoking accelerates the skin’s normal aging process. This can be attributed to the reduced blood supply level on skin.

Activities and or Profession

If your job or activities you love require constant exposure to sunlight, you may develop wrinkles faster. Ultraviolet radiation breaks down the connective tissue in your skin. This causes the skin to lose strength and flexibility, which can speed up aging.

Facial expressions

Repeated facial movements such as smiling is another wrinkle cause. As you age, the skin loses its ability to get back to its natural shape. The lines may become permanent.


You may see wrinkles in your skin as you age.
