Botox What to Expect
Dr. Chahal will perform an in-depth cosmetic consultation and analysis of the skin to determine the appropriate dosage and placement of the BOTOX® injections. We tailor your treatments to best meet your cosmetic goals.
Prior to treatment, the affected area is numbed to prepare you for the injections. Once you are made comfortable, Dr. Chahal will carefully inject the BOTOX® into the designated areas. Some patients report filling a slight sensation of pressure during their injections. Some patients may experience minor swelling at the injection site after their treatments; this typically fades after a few days.
On average, BOTOX® lasts for about six months after the first initial treatment. Aside from the facial rejuvenation benefits of BOTOX®, in some cases, it can be used to treat headaches, TMJ pain, and teeth grinding.
Dr. Chahal will explain all aspects of your care during your consultation and make recommendations based on your needs.

Dentists may give BOTOX® treatment to patients for a variety of cosmetic reasons, or functional reasons. It may also help patients who are feeling sore pain in their jaw and facial tissue due to TMJ and teeth grinding. Cosmetic dentists are well-equipped to help improve facial structure.
BOTOX® is made from a form of botulinum toxin A., and is derived from the bacterium clostridium botulinum. It is safe to use in small doses. It gently tightens your muscles which in turn tightens the facial tissue and skin.
