Botox is for More Than Wrinkle Treatment

You already know that Botox is a fantastic way to both treat and prevent wrinkles, but did you know it can be used to address serious medical issues? Parson Skin Center offers a Botox happy hour for $11 per unit, which is a big discount and the perfect way to try out or maintain your injections. The nurse injectors have a strong local following, so make sure you sign up with your Scottsdale injector immediately to secure your happy hour price.

Botox has long been used to treat migraines and excessive sweat, but it can also be used to prevent clenching your teeth and grinding. Known as “masseter Botox,” these injections are placed in the jaw area to relax the muscles responsible for jaw clenching, ultimately helping to minimize one of the most painful side effects of stress.

Grinding and clenching your teeth can lead to wearing down the enamel, and once the enamel is gone, there’s no getting it back. From cracked teeth to requiring dental surgeries to repair the damage, it’s important to treat teeth clenching quickly. Dentists often recommend mouth guards, but Botox might be a compliment or even an alternative.

Most clients require four injections (two on each side) with their Scottsdale injector focusing on the masseter muscle. This muscle is in charge of a lot of activities, including chewing and lifting the jawbone. However, when it’s constantly tense, that can cause problems like waking up with severe headaches. The amount of Botox injected isn’t enough to make chewing difficult, but just enough to discourage clenching. As a bonus for many, it can also lead to the appearance of a slimmer jawline because clenched jaws equal a stronger-looking jaw.
