Stress is natural, but what poses as unnatural is when it becomes too superficial on the skin and underneath, affecting your lifestyle and confidence. Tired of putting up with TMJ symptoms and the all-too-prominent jawline that comes with it? While TMJ is treated with medication or surgery, time and some risks are determining factors to consider. When it comes to looking for answers that both heal and improve your overall looks, some voids can only be filled by the wonders of medical science–like Botox.

WHAT TO EXPECT
Throw Your Fears Away
Marking the Target Areas
After cleansing the areas with alcohol, our injectors will ask you to do a jaw clench to determine the areas of injection. We put pencil marks on these areas, for a precise Botox injection.
Injecting the Botox
Our aim is to weaken the masseter muscle by injecting several units of Botox into your jaw. The number of units on each side highly depends on the consultation. The procedure is virtually painless, save for a minor sting.
There is no downtime required for this type of treatment. In fact, you can undergo this treatment at any time convenient. The procedure can last up to about 30 minutes, and you can continue with your normal activities post-treatment, with some extra care.
What You Need to Know
Frequently Asked Questions
Most clients experience relief almost immediately, noticing reduced muscle tension in the jaw. As for lines and wrinkles, these can take a few days before the Botox fully settles in, starting on day one and up to a week. Meanwhile, facial slimming and jaw reduction happen gradually, anywhere from 2 weeks to 2 months, making the effect subtle and more natural.
Most clients report pain relief from TMJ/Jaw Reduction treatment for three to six months. However, for best results, it is recommended to have the treatment every 3 months.
To prepare the skin for the treatment, clients are advised to drink plenty of water daily. Eating leafy vegetables will also help combat possible inflammation as a side effect.
Patients are advised to refrain from doing the following:
- Drinking alcohol.
- Taking medicines with blood-thinning properties (i.e., pain relief medications).
- Applying makeup
- Doing rigorous physical activity
- Massaging or rubbing the injected areas
Generally, within a week after the treatment, you may experience some of the following side effects:
- Pain in the targeted areas
- Redness in the injection areas
- Masseter muscle weakness
- Bruising in the injection areas
For your safety, it’s always best to disclose any current or previous allergies and sensitivity issues you have during the consultation phase.
