BOTOX® injection is a simple, non-surgical procedure that smoothes the deep, persistent lines between your brows that have developed over the course of time. A ten-minute treatment relaxes the muscles that cause those lines to form and keeps them relaxed for up to four months. Unlike surgery, BOTOX® is fast, simple, minimally invasive, and includes no recovery or downtime. It has been approved by the FDA.

“Dear Dr. Cosgrove:
As you know I have multiple jaw issues (the inability to eat or talk without pain) one of them being Bruxism (teeth grinding) which has served to make the rest of my jaw issues worse. Although I have worn a night guard for many, many years I continued to grind. I had heard that Botox might be helpful but was also told by my doctor that it wouldn’t.
Over the years I have tried multiple night guards ranging from $400 to $600, a total spent on guards of $1,500 and that doesn’t include the $5,000 I spent (out of my own pocket) for the ‘special guard’ that was supposed to re-align my jaw but didn’t work.
So, I saw you for the Botox injections and it has really made a significant difference. I noticed the difference within 24 hours. I no longer wake up with a sore jaw and the muscles are definitely not in spasm like they were. I can honestly say this has been a Godsend to me.
Most people are unaware of this medical aspect of Botox but I hope that if others read this they might find relief. Bruxisn is also one of the main culprits in headaches. Besides, before putting out the kind of money necessary for dental night guards it makes more sense to try this less expensive method. I wish I had.
With much gratitude,
Latest Development: On September 12, 2013 the FDA announced that Botox® is now officially an FDA-Approved treatment for Crow’s Feet!
