Botulinum Toxins

Many facial wrinkles result from nerves telling muscles to remain contracted. When injected directly into the muscle, Botox blocks these signals from the nerves, allowing the muscles to relax and smoothing the wrinkles that they cause. When injected into the masseter muscles that move the jaws, Botulinum toxin blocks signals from the nerves to the muscles so they can no longer contract to decrease teeth clenching.
