Additional Information

HOW DO BOTULINUM TOXIN INJECTIONS WORK?

Botulinum toxin is a refined neurotoxin which, when injected locally into muscles, causes muscular relaxation. When injected in small quantities into the muscles involved in migraine tension headaches, or the trapezius muscles, this causes the muscles to reduce in size and become less active. As a result, muscle tension is eased.  Following the injections, there is a lag period before the effects appear – usually about 3-5 days, reaching the full effects by about day 10-14 post-treatment. When injected into the masseter muscles (for treatment of teeth grinding or jawline slimming), the effects take longer to develop (on average 4-6 weeks) because this muscle is known to be large and strong.

WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS?

Expertly administered botulinum toxin helps to relieve muscle tension associated with migraine headaches and overactive trapezius muscles. It also helps to near-fully reverse symptoms of teeth grinding and jaw tension. This also has the added cosmetic effect of slimming the lower face. 

Botulinum toxin Injections for migraine headaches is administered in the forehead and frown muscles, temples, occipital region, upper and lower neck. For trapezius muscle tension relief, it is administered in 5 points within the muscle. For teeth grinding and/or jawline slimming, it is administered in 5 points within the masseter muscle.

Yes. Botulinum toxin injections are safe to receive with other facial injectable treatments like Hyaluronic Acid Fillers. Masseter Botox® is commonly used to slim the lower face as part of our V-Shape structural enhancement treatment.

For an average patient, the results last 3-4 months and begin to gradually wear off after this period. The majority of patients receive botulinum toxin injections two-three times per year. The length of results and desired frequency of treatment can be influenced by the strength of each individuals’ muscles and lifestyle.
