Slimming of the Jawline and Reduction In the TMJ pain
Chewing. There’s a muscle for that. It’s called the “masseter muscle” and it wraps about the outer jaw. For some, this muscle is a bit larger or thicker than they’d prefer. In such cases, a “masseter” BOTOX® injection can slim the neck and accentuate the oval-ness of a patient’s face, transforming a patient’s jawline, resulting in a more feminine aesthetic. However, BOTOX® injections into the “masseter” can transform more than a patient’s appearance.
For some, teeth grinding (i.e. TMJ), especially while they sleep, feels like a harsh, never-ending sentence, resulting in headaches, migraines, ear pain, and damaged teeth. For such Beverly Hills patients, BOTOX® injected into the jawline offers a pardon. Such a treatment narrows the jawline, relaxes the “masseter” muscle, and alleviates pain associated with TMJ disorders. Yet, those who undergo such an injection, are able to chew, smile, and laugh without skipping a beat.
Many of BOTOX®’s myriad and diverse applications are well known: it erases wrinkles, banishes migraines, and reshapes faces. This medical marvel, however, has another trick up its sleeve. And this trick, unlike those listed above, is generally covered by insurance. For most of us, sweating is an irritant. For others, however, excessive sweat is a condition, and it’s debilitating. The afflicted suffer from excessive yellow stains on their clothing, palms so wet that shaking others’ hands is a cause for panic, and feet so damp that blisters result.
For these individuals, BOTOX® injected into the armpits, the palms of their hands, or the soles of their feet, can stop this problem cold. The procedure can be done with topical or IV anesthesia for maximum comfort. Results typically take 7 days to set in and last an average of up to 7 months.
