|Many patients who grind their teeth can suffer from migraines, jaw pain and headaches. Muscle Relaxant Injections are commonly used as a safe and non-invasive treatment option to minimise the side effects of teeth grinding (bruxism), which can also soften the appearance of a square jawline. Treatments work by reducing the size of the affected muscles which provides instant relief, and softens the appearance of the lower face to provide a more aesthetically pleasing jaw line. A consultation with our Cosmetic Injector is required to determine treatment suitability.|
Teeth Grinding/Jaw Slimming FAQs
How do Muscle Relaxant Injections work for teeth grinding?
When performing treatment for teeth grinding, the large chewing muscles called masseters are injected with muscle relaxant. Although the muscle is not fully paralysed by the injections, it is relaxed enough to reduce the grinding action.
How long do the results last?
Results typically last for approximately 6 months.
Is there any downtime?
There is no downtime involved with this treatment but you will be advised to not perform strenuous exercise for 24 hours and to be gentle with the area injected. You may experience mild redness, swelling or bruising at the injection sites.
How much does the treatment cost?
The cost will vary from patient to patient, depending upon a multitude of factors, including the strength of the muscle and lifestyle factors. During your initial consultation, your Cosmetic Injector will be able to provide you with an accurate quote before proceeding with the treatment.
