Our team at the Dermlounge is dedicated to providing innovative treatments that enhance both your beauty and well-being. In addition to the aesthetic uses for BOTOX® Cosmetic — including smoothing wrinkles and creating a slimmer jawline — the popular injectable can be used to target the masseter muscles to alleviate teeth grinding, a condition medically as bruxism. This therapeutic approach can relieve the discomfort and dental damage caused by teeth grinding.

How Can BOTOX Injections Help Teeth Grinding?

Teeth grinding, or bruxism, can lead to a range of uncomfortable symptoms, including jaw pain, headaches, and even damage to the teeth. BOTOX injections into the masseter muscles offer a revolutionary solution by temporarily relaxing these muscles. This relaxation reduces the unconscious movement of the jaw that leads to grinding, thereby alleviating the associated symptoms. Patients not only experience significant relief from pain and discomfort but also enjoy a reduction in the risk of dental damage due to grinding.

How Long Does BOTOX Last for Masseter Muscles?

The effects of BOTOX for the masseter muscles are temporary but lasting. Typically, patients enjoy the benefits of a single treatment for about 3 to 6 months. The duration can vary depending on individual factors such as the strength of the masseter muscles and the extent of teeth grinding. Regular follow-up treatments can help maintain the desired results, and over time, some patients may find they require injections less frequently.

How Much Does Masseter BOTOX Cost?

The cost of BOTOX for the masseter muscles can vary based on several factors, including the amount of BOTOX used, the geographic location of the medical spa, and the expertise of the practitioner. For a personalized quote that reflects your specific treatment plan, we recommend scheduling a consultation with our experienced team.
