Most people think of Botox® or botulinum toxin A as a wrinkle fighter, a toxin to turn back time. However, in recent years, it has become important for treating many problems that have nothing to do with looking good — and everything to do with feeling better.
The BOTOX® alternative treatment for TMJ disorders and jaw tension is usually quick, straightforward, and effective. BOTOX® relieves jaw tension by making muscles unable to engage in the powerful, often unconscious movement of the jaw that produces headaches and pain.
The injections often eliminate headaches resulting from teeth grinding, CLENCHING and, in cases of severe stress, BOTOX® can even minimize lock jaw.
The injections are mainly in the temporalis, frontalis and masseter areas but additional sites like glabella, frontalis, procerus, corugator and orbicularis oculus may be injected with Botulinum Toxins depending on the severity of the headaches and migraines.
BOTOX belongs to a bigger class of similar injectables that include other brand names like Dysport and XEOMIN. These injectables are known as neuromodulators which relax facial muscles by blocking the nerve impulses that are responsible for activating them.
But that’s not all they can do!
When we use BOTOX, Dysport, or XEOMIN to treat the masseter muscles, we can soften the jaw muscles creating noticeable facial slimming and shaping benefits. Masseter reduction can give the appearance of a 5 to 10 lb weight loss (no gym required)!
