HOW DOES BOTOX WORKS?
It uses a purified, natural protein derived from the bacterium, Clostridium botulinum that works by blocking acetylcholine impulses that cause hyperactive muscle contractions. The injected muscles can no longer contract, causing wrinkles to soften and relax. The procedure takes a few minutes, with no anesthesia required.
WHO CAN GET BOTOX DONE?
- 18-65 years old males and females
- Patients with no allergy issues
WHO IS NOT A SUITABLE CANDIDATE FOR BOTOX?
- Medical conditions like Myasthenia Gravis, Lambert-Eaton syndrome, Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS)

- Pregnancy, breast-feeding or planned pregnancy during study

- Aminoglycoside antibiotics (e.g. Tobramycin, Kanamycin, Streptomycin)
- Marked facial asymmetry, Ptosis or other anatomic defects
- Infection or skin problem at injection site

BOTOX FOR MASSETER HYPERTROPHY
Masseter muscle hypertrophy occurs as a soft enlargement of the jaw muscles near the angle of the lower jaw due to factors like emotional stress, chronic bruxism (clenching of teeth), etc.
In some individuals the swelling may be associated with pain or may be so large that it causes facial disfigurement. Hypertrophied muscles of the jaw can lead to increased pressure in the Temporomandibular joints, which can generate severe pain and mimic Temporomandibular dysfunction syndrome.
Symptoms such as pain can be treated with muscle relaxants and may also include bite adjustments or involve the use of splints on the teeth.
When Botulinum toxin type A i.e. BOTOX is injected into a muscle it causes interference with the neurotransmitter mechanism producing selective loss of muscle function and a subsequent decrease in muscle mass.
