Clench Your Teeth
I need Botox/Dysport for my masseter muscles?
Go ahead and clench your teeth together. Do you feel your muscle near your jawline? Do you grind your teeth at night? If you answered yes, this might be for you!
Botox/Dysport relaxes your muscles and can ease the tension and stiffness that you feel all day long. Ugh-annoying, right? Once treated, there’s a chance you will have less headaches and wake up feeling more refreshed.
Botox/Dysport can also slim the look of a “square face” when injections are administered in the masseter muscle (the muscle around the jawline). This will actually give the face a narrower appearance!
Is it safe?
Botox and Dysport are one of the safest treatments available! After the injection moves from the dermis and into the desired muscle, the nerves there are blocked by the tox. So even though your brain my fire and signal for your body to move a particular muscle, Botox/Dysport effectively blocks that firing and keeps the muscle from moving. The injected muscle can no longer contract, which causes the wrinkles to relax and soften, and also helps prevent new ones from forming.
