Muscle Relaxing Injections

Muscle Relaxing Injections

Botulinum toxin is a muscle relaxing substance which is diluted with saline and injected into the skin or muscles of the body. It is used in many applications in medicine (ophthalmology, urology, gynaecology, etc) and in various applications in dentistry. It is also used in the treatments of headaches, to control excessive sweating, and to help control muscle spasm in many areas of the body. It is also used in Advanced Facial Aesthetic treatments to control the action of facial muscles and is very useful in anti-ageing treatments.

Muscle relaxing injections can improve some of these symptoms by as much as 90%. The jaw muscles are deliberately weakened so that they cannot exert such huge forces onto the teeth and they become much more relaxed. It may be required for the patient to wear a plastic night guard between the teeth during sleep, to keep the back teeth apart, as part of the treatment plan. This also protects the teeth and their length and appearance.

The treatment can cause the face to slim and become more tapered, because the weaker muscles lose their bulk. This can be desirable especially in a woman, but may be less desirable for people who like their face shape the way it is.

Before & After

Patients who grind and clench a lot at night can have enlarged jaw muscles which make their faces look square and heavy. By using small muscle relaxing injections in these muscles, we can reduce them in size. This slims down the lower part of the face, allow the cheek bones which are higher up, to look more defined. This can make a woman look more feminine and give the face more aesthetic curves.
