Botox is actually a shorter term for Botulinum toxin type A, which is a purified form of Clostridium botulinum. Botox is injected intentionally into certain muscles to inhibit the release of particular chemicals between a nerve and a muscle, which causes the muscle to relax.
This treatment is excellent for patients suffering from headaches, migraines, TMJ issues, and bruxism (clenching and grinding). It has been known to reduce and even eliminate the pain of frequent headaches and protect from the damage to your teeth caused by bruxism. Botox can also help you attain your cosmetic goals because it reduces the appearance of fine line and wrinkles.
