How Does Botox Work?

Whenever you laugh, frown, concentrate or squint into the sun, your facial muscles contract and your skin creases.

As you get older, your skin loses its elasticity and those creases deepen into lines that can become permanently etched on your face. Frown lines between your eyes can become particularly noticeable at a relatively young age, making you look angry or worried even when you’re not. By temporarily immobilizing the muscles you use to frown, Botox can smooth out those lines, restoring a more youthful, less stressed expression to your face.

Injected into the skin BOTOX works by temporarily blocking nerve impulses to the injected muscles. By blocking nerve impulses BOTOX is able reduce the muscle activity that causes unwanted fine lines and deep-set wrinkles. Many branches of medicine are using BOTOX Cosmetic injections today to treat TMJ, Bruxism, migraines, and of course, for cosmetic purposes.

BOTOX consists of a serious of mild injections which are extremely tolerable. On occasion minor bruising can occur but lasts only a few days.

AAFE trained members will work with you to design your treatment to minimize your discomfort. This is because some areas of the face require two to five almost painless injections with a thin needle. The BOTOX injections take about 15 minutes and no anesthesia is required.

BOTOX® Treatment for Jaw Tension and TMJ

BOTOX® is used as an alternative treatment for TMJ (temporo-mandibular joint) disorders and associated jaw tension and pain. When injected into facial muscles afflicted with soreness and discomfort, BOTOX® relieves TMJ and jaw tension for many patients. The injections often eliminate headaches resulting from teeth grinding, and, in cases of severe stress, BOTOX® can even minimize lock jaw. Although BOTOX® treatment for these conditions is presently experimental; evidence indicates that it can be extremely effective.

How Does BOTOX® Treat Jaw Tension and TMJ Disorder?

Located on both sides of the head at the point where the jawbone meets the skull, the temporo-mandibular joint (TMJ) is used during talking, eating, swallowing, and other everyday activities. If this joint becomes displaced or is overworked through excessive teeth grinding, a person may suffer severe tension headaches, as well as sharp pain in the jaw. 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 BOTOX® alternative treatment for TMJ disorders and jaw tension is usually quick, straightforward, and effective. A non-surgical procedure, BOTOX® injections are administered in a doctor’s office and treatment requires no hospital stay. Most patients experience noticeable improvement within one or two days of their first treatment, although relief can take up to a week.

Areas Affected by TMJ Botox Therapy

Only the areas injected with Botox will be “relaxed.” Botox treatment for TMJ therapy will not affect anywhere else in your body. The injections are mainly in the temporalis, frontalis and masseter (see picture below) additional sites may be injected with Botox depending on the severity of the headaches.

How long is the Botox Treatment Procedure?

The length of the Botox treatment procedure depends on the number of injections needed as determined by the doctor. Still, it is reasonable for the treatment procedure to be completed within 10-30 minutes.
