Botox & Fillers Q & A

What is Botox?

Botox is a cosmetic injection that helps temporarily reduce the appearance of the lines and wrinkles found around your eyes and forehead. Botox is specifically FDA-approved to treat your:

  • Crow’s feet
  • Forehead lines
  • Frown lines


Botox works by temporarily relaxing the muscles under your skin to prevent the formation of the lines and wrinkles.

As you get older, your body produces less collagen, a protein in your skin that is vital for strength and elasticity. The subcutaneous fat under your skin also declines.

Because your skin is thinner due to the lack of collagen and there’s less fat between your skin and muscles, the muscles work closer to your skin, causing the lines and wrinkles to develop.

What Can I Expect During Botox Injections?

Botox injections at Smile Design Manhattan can be completed in 20 minutes or less. You may feel some pain during the initial injection, but the needles are small and any discomfort is minimal. Depending on the area you’re having treated, you may need 3-10 injections.

After your Botox, you can go right back to your usual day. However, you’re advised to delay any strenuous workout for at least two hours. You should start to notice an improvement in your appearance within 24 hours after your injection, and the results may last up to four months.

What are Fillers?

Fillers are a cosmetic injection that adds volume under your skin and serves as a replacement for your subcutaneous fat. The aesthetic specialists at Smile Design Manhattan may offer fillers to:

  • Smooth out lines and wrinkles
  • Improve contours
  • Add volume to your lips


You may want to consider dermal fillers to help restore your more youthful look and slow down the early signs of aging.

What Can I Expect During Filler Injections?

Filler injections are a quick procedure that provides immediate results. During your procedure, your specialist injects the filler into very precise areas of your skin and massages it into place to give you the desired results.

You may notice some redness at the injection site immediately following your session, but these side effects should disappear quickly. With fillers, you should see an immediate improvement in your look, which may last up to a year.

Botox for TMJ Related Disorders and Pain

Botox is a great therapeutic agent to manage pain associated with many TMJ related dysfunctions such as muscle pain, headaches, joint dislocation, severe clenching and trismus. Botox works by weakening the hyperactive muscles associated with the TMJ by blocking the nerves to alleviate chronic pain. This can significantly better quality life especially for those who have tried more concervatice methods Such as nightguards and muscle relaxers to relieve the pain.
