How does Botox work?
Botox is a neuromodulator which works by blocking impulses, or signals sent by nerves that normally result in the muscles contracting, but are no longer able to fully contract while the neuromodulator is working.
What are the common uses for Botox?
- Botox’s most common use is to erase signs of aging created by overactive muscles. (dynamic rhytids) This overactivity of muscles creates frown type lines in the skin.
- “Jaw Slimming” and facial reshaping.
- Masking assymetries (differences between the right and left sides of the face and jaws).
- Treat certain facial pain and headaches.
- Overactive jaw muscles (bruxism) .
Botox treats the 11’s
The lines in the glabellar region (between the eyes) are also known as the “11’s” also may be treated. These lines are caused by muscles contracting. This creates actual folds in the skin. The longer that this goes on, the deeper and more resistant they become.
When the 11’s are very deep, Botox alone may not be enough. In those cases, Dr.Burke combines Botox with other techniques further decreasing them.
As the muscles relax, wrinkles are less prominent (between the eyes, forehead creases, crow’s feet around the eyes and lines above the lip and around the neck).
Are there other uses for Botox?
Botox can also be used to correct hyperactive muscles (tics) and a crooked smile.
Botox is used by Dr.Burke to minimize vertical lines that appear on the upper lip as one ages.
Botox for Jaw Reshaping (Slimming): Creating Jaw reduction without surgery. In past years this required a surgical procedure. Now Botox provides a nonsurgical option. It works by allowing the muscle to relax and shrink in size. Often this accomplishes several additional purposes including decreasing jaw pain with chewing, decreasing headaches related to jaw clenching. Below are examples of Dr.Burke’s patients treated by Botox for Jaw Slimming.
Botox for Bruxism
Dr.Burke also uses Botox in selective instances to decrease jaw pain from bruxism and migraines. As the muscles are weakened by the Botox, the frequency and force of jaw muscle clenching decreases.
