BOTOX® treatments are among the more widely researched pharmaceutical treatments worldwide, with numerous therapeutic and cosmetic applications and results you can trust. Following an initial consultation and treatment with Dr Wessels, patients can experience relief from TMJ pain and masseter hypertrophy or excessive sweating.
Botulinum toxin injections can be effective for the treatment of TMJ pain syndrome. At Clear Skin Victoria, we use Botox Therapeutic® injections, the gold standard in aesthetic medicine with extensive research and development and proven safety.
Botulinum toxin injected into masseters will effectively relax the muscle, reducing tension and pain syndrome associated with TMJ disorder and/or bruxism. With regular maintenance and after multiple treatment sessions, the results will be longer-lasting and more effective.
RESULTS LAST Up to 3-6 months; this may vary case by case
To treat excessive sweating, BOTOX® treatments effectively target overactive sweat glands. Treatments can be applied to the scalp, underarms (axillae), palms (palmar) and feet (plantar). In most cases, patients experience effective relief from unwanted symptoms for 6 to 8 months. It is recommended that treatments be maintained regularly, which will also aid in longer-lasting results and therapeutic benefits.
Botulinum toxin will prevent glandular contractions by inhibiting the release of signalling molecules from the brain called Acetylcholine at the neuromuscular junction. This, in effect, will create a temporary reduction in sweat production.
