What is Botulinum Toxin and how does it reduce fine lines and wrinkles?

Botulinum Toxin is a medication known as a neuromodulator. Neuromodulators work through injection into the muscles of the face to reduce contractions and relax them. The results of the injections can last several months before reinjection is needed to maintain results.

How is Botulinum Toxin used at Solay Dental?

There are several reasons why our dental team at Solay Dental may integrate Botulinum Toxin injections into a patient’s dental visit:

  • Cosmetic enhancement. Botulinum Toxin is used to reduce the appearance of wrinkles around the face, giving you a more youthful look. This is because Botulinum Toxin works at reducing muscle contractions. Injecting Botulinum Toxin into the muscles of the face can reduce noticeable wrinkles and folds known as “dynamic wrinkles,” turning back the hands of time.
  • To alleviate TMJ symptoms. If you suffer from teeth grinding or clenching (bruxism), Botulinum Toxin for TMJ can help to relax the muscles in your jaw and ease your discomfort. The injections are administered into the muscles around the jaw joint, or “temporomandibular joint,” to address chronic TMJ/TMD symptoms.
  • Treatment for gummy smiles. By injecting Botulinum Toxin directly into the muscles that control the upper lip, we can minimize the amount of gum tissue shown when you smile. This can create a more esthetically pleasing appearance and eliminate the need for gum contouring treatments that are more invasive.
  • Chronic headaches and migraines. Patients who deal with tension headaches and migraines may be able to achieve relief with our injections. Botulinum Toxin can reduce the muscle tension that can cause these headaches, offering relief that lasts several months before reinjection is needed.

What to expect during a Botulinum Toxin Dental Appointment

The entire process takes just a few minutes to complete. First, we will numb the injection site with a local anesthetic. Then, we will carefully administer the Botulinum Toxin where it is needed to get the necessary reaction from the face and head muscles. The injection begins to work within a week and can last several months.
