Cosmetic BOTOX® Treatments
By injecting a BOTOX solution into your facial muscles, we can prevent the unnecessary, involuntary movements that lead to wrinkles forming in the first place. Once the muscles have had a chance to relax, the lines will fade away. This treatment is often combined with Dermal Fillers, which are used to add fullness to the face and are effective on different kinds of wrinkles. A licensed dentist like Dr. Ostrand is more reliable than other providers because they are already trained to work on the face.
BOTOX® Therapy for TMJ/TMD
When the joints used to move the jaw become displaced or overworked, you may end up suffering from severe headaches and sharp jaw pain. This is known as a temporomandibular joint disorder, or a TMD. Dr. Ostrand can inject BOTOX directly into the sore muscles to limit the unconscious movements (such as grinding) that could be the cause of the condition. Once your TMD has been addressed this way, your symptoms should start to fade.

Does getting BOTOX injections hurt?
BOTOX injections don’t hurt, because our team uses some of the smallest needles to administer the solution beneath your skin. We do everything we can to ensure that you have a comfortable, pain-free treatment, so if there’s anything that we can do to allow you to feel more relaxed while you receive injections, please let us know!
At what age can I start getting BOTOX?
There’s no magical age that’s considered “acceptable” to get BOTOX, because wrinkles can occur at really any point in your life! Our patients who receive this treatment range from 25 years old on up. A good way to find out whether BOTOX may be a good treatment option for you is to schedule a consultation with your cosmetic dentist in Pewaukee. She can walk you through the process, discuss your goals with you, and let you know how BOTOX injections can help you meet those goals.
Should I do anything to prepare for BOTOX injections?
Before visiting us for your appointment, we ask that you stop consuming any alcohol at least a week beforehand. We also recommend to stop taking blood thinning medications like ibuprofen to avoid any bruising.
Are there any side-effects of BOTOX injections?
Patients often experience bruising, tenderness, and a bit of swelling after receiving their injections, but these side-effects are completely normal and typically go away within a few days. If you experience any other symptoms after your treatment, please reach out to our office.
How many BOTOX injections will I need?
The number of injections that you’ll need depends on what results you’d like to achieve. For example, minimizing the appearance of crow’s feet around your eyes typically takes about three injections, while removing frown lines takes about five. We’ll discuss your treatment plan with you during your consultation before moving forward with the injections to make sure that you feel comfortable with it.
