Botox ® is an FDA approved purified protein which is injected into targeted muscles and temporarily blocks nerve signals that cause muscle movements, essentially relaxing the muscle which reduces or eliminates fine lines and wrinkles.
Within three to five days of the Botox ® injection, the treated facial muscles will become temporarily relaxed, causing the overlying skin to lay flat and unwrinkled. The untreated facial muscles contract in a normal fashion allowing facial expressions to be unaffected.
Dr. Troy Schmitz received his Botox® training from the American Academy of Facial Esthetics (AAFE). Dr. Schmitz uses Botox® to enhance patients’ smiles, as well as improve total facial esthetics. He also finds Botox to be highly effective in controlling migraine headaches and teeth clenching.

"For whatever reason, I had problems with clenching my teeth for years. I wear a dental appliance at night to help prevent wearing down my teeth, plus to help relieve headaches and TMJ pain.
I recently went into Persona Dental where Dr. Schmitz offered to inject Botox to help with my clenching. In just two weeks I felt like a new person! My jaw feels much more relaxed. My TMJ pain is much better and I don't wake up with a headache. Thanks, Dr. Schmitz!"
