BOTOX® Cosmetic is a prescription medicine that is injected into muscles and used to temporarily improve the look of moderate to severe forehead lines, crow's feet, and frown lines between the eyebrows in adults. BOTOX® Cosmetics has received FDA approval to temporally improve the appearance of moderate to severe frown lines.
BOTOX® injections block certain chemical signals from nerves, mostly signals that cause muscles to contract. The most common use of these injections is to temporarily relax the facial muscles that cause wrinkles in the forehead and around the eyes.
If you have severe bruxism, BOTOX® injections may be more effective. As the botulinum toxin weakens the masseter, it relaxes the jaw. This stops the jaw and teeth from involuntarily clenching, reducing symptoms such as jaw pain.
