Through a simple 10-minute procedure, Botox will smoothen facial lines and prevent new lines from forming. Common areas treated are forehead lines, frown lines, crow's feet and other facial lines. Botox is also used to narrow square jaws as well as decrease excessive sweating in the underarms and palms, as well as migraine and bruxism.

Botox®, a highly purified protein that is manufactured under stringent conditions, is administered in a few tiny injections to relax the muscles that cause dynamic wrinkles. As a result, you can achieve a more youthful look that lasts up to four to six months.

​Description

Bruxism is a condition whereby you grind your teeth unconsciously. Teeth grinding usually occurs during sleep. 

 

There are some factors associated with increased risk of bruxism such as emotional stress, an aggressive or hyperactive personality, family history and psychiatric disorders or taking psychiatric medications. 

How is Bruxism diagnosed?

You might find that you have squarish jaw-line due to enlarged masseter muscles. The other symptoms of bruxism or teeth grinding include headache, ear ache, increased tooth sensitivity or tired jaw muscles.

The first person who might notice your teeth grinding may be your partner! They might awakened by your teeth grinding. The next person might be your dentist, who will notice that your teeth are flattened, fractured, chipped or loose! 

 

How does Botox Treat Bruxism (Jaw Grinding) Efficiently?

Botox treats bruxism by weakening your masseter muscles (jaw clenching muscles). This will limit the intensity of the teeth grinding movement and minimize damage done to your teeth.

 

You will also realise that your face will appear slimmer as the masseter decrease in size. You can relate this to a muscular weightlifter who stops his training for months.

Dentists may suggest wearing a splint or mouth guard to preserve the teeth without actually treating bruxism. Stress management and behavioral change may help to improve symptoms of bruxism but they don’t always work.

 

In general, oral medications like muscle relaxants and anti-anxiety medications are also not very effective and not recommended for long term use.  

​Description

A migraine is a specific type of headache. Classic migraines usually begin at childhood and get better or worse with age. They are classified according to the symptoms they produce. Two common types of migraines include migraine with aura and migraine without aura. Some migraines can be triggered by hormonal changes of the menstrual cycle and pregnancy. Approximately 70 percent of migraine sufferers are women.

How are Migraines diagnosed?

Many times, individuals can be diagnosed with migraines based on a physical examination and family history. If the migraines are unusual or severe, a variety of medical tests may be needed to rule out other causes of the pain.

 

How does Botox Effectively Treat Migraines?

Botox is injected around pain fibres that are involved in headaches. Botox enters the nerve endings around where it is injected and blocks the release of chemicals involved in pain transmission. This prevents activation of pain networks in the brain.

Botox can take some time to work and can prevent migraine headaches before they start. Patients see increasing benefit with an increase in the number of treatment cycles. One treatment lasts for 10-12 weeks, and it has been reported that two Botox treatments can reduce the number of migraine days by approximately 50%.

  • The Botox® procedure takes place in the physician’s office after a consultation session between physician and patient.

  • The physician will administer a few tiny injections to relax the muscles that cause dynamic wrinkles.

  • Patients are advised not to lie down for 4 hours after the procedure.

  • Patients can resume their daily routine soon after the treatment (e.g. working, walking, sitting etc.)

Botox® has minimal side effects, which will be explained prior to the procedure by Dr. Mendis.

  • Is Botox® safe?

Botox® is a highly purified protein that is manufactured under stringent conditions. The safety of Botox® is well established with more than 20 years of clinical use. It has been used to treat millions of patients worldwide.

  • How does Botox® work?​

Botox® blocks the nerve cells that cause muscle contraction, resulting in muscle relaxation that gives rise to the smoothening of facial lines and the prevention of new lines from forming.

  • What can I expect with Botox®?

After a simple 10-minute procedure, Botox® improves your appearance within a week, and the youthful look can last up to four to six months.

  • Will Botox® make me look unnatural after my procedure?

Botox® produces natural results and gives you a refreshed appearance. 

  • Does Botox® treatment cause people to look older once treatment is stopped?​​

No. Botox® produces a localised effect and relaxes the muscles temporarily so that they no longer tense up and cause wrinkles. If you discontinue Botox® treatment, the treated muscles will gradually return to normal activity.
