Our muscles are designed to get stronger with increased use. Our chewing and facial expression muscles are no exception. Overuse of these muscles can lead to skin wrinkling, overdevelopment of the jaw muscles, as well as facial pain.
WHO BENEFITS FROM BOTOX THERAPY?
You might be a candidate for Botox treatment to relax these muscles if:
•You have bruxism (teeth clenching and grinding)
•You have TMJ Dysfunction
•You suffer migraine headaches
•You carry stress in your jaw, neck, or shoulders
•Have repeatedly cracked or broken teeth or dental restorations with chewing regular foods
WHAT IS BOTOX?
Botox is a brand name of a pure sterilized toxin from the bacterium Clostridium A.
It is carefully diluted for an exact outcome to relax muscles, and is placed in the muscle by injection.
Since 1990, the Botulinum toxin has been FDA approved for cervical dystonia (neck muscle issues) and since 2011 for chronic migraine. It does not create numbness or paralysis—only relaxes the muscles.
BOTOX HELPS REDUCE BULKY JAW MUSCLES
More chewing means more muscle mass, which leads to bigger, bulkier jawlines. For some patients, this can seriously affect their appearance. Botox treatment can help relax these muscles and return their original look.
Over the span of three treatments, three months apart, many female patients see a dramatic reduction in the bulk of their jaw, leading to a more feminine, slender jawline through this affordable treatment.
