Teeth grinding, also known medically as Bruxism – is a condition relating to excessive and unnecessary teeth-grinding and/or clenching of the jaw. It’s a surprisingly common phenomenon, estimated to affect up to 30% of the population. And, when the symptoms are mild, people may not even be aware of the condition.

The grinding usually happens during sleep and can damage teeth, cause pain, and result in headaches and jaw problems. The cause is unknown, but it’s believed to stem from brain signals that lead to involuntary and forceful contraction of jaw muscles. Some evidence suggests a genetic predisposition, but bruxism may also stem from stress and anxiety.

Wrinkle reduction injections, made up of a substance called Botulinum Toxin, are proving to be an effective treatment for easing the pain and unpleasant symptoms of teeth grinding. By injecting into the masticatory muscles, the injections lessen the muscles’ ability to clench and grind the jaw, and thus, reduce pain.

The treatment involves 5-6 injections which are carefully administered in order to retain all the normal functions of chewing, talking and smiling. At Hamilton Skin Clinic, we charge by the unit so it is more cost effective once we determine how many units you will need. The results are simply revolutionary!

Wrinkle reduction can address symptoms of Teeth Grinding, TMJ or Bruxism including:

  • Headaches and migraines
  • Hypersensitive teeth
  • Difficulty chewing or pain while chewing
  • A painful, tender and tired jaw
  • Unnatural tooth wear
  • Pain or tenderness in the face or around the neck and shoulder area

I had my first ever cosmetic appointment with Nurse Jo 29/09 and I am so happy with the service. My results are still settling but I could see the difference within a week (really happy). I was really nervous but Nurse Jo provided so much information and options, I felt like I was being listened to. Thank you so much Nurse Jo!! Really appreciated the experience & support.

I went to Jo feeling nervous and uncertain of what I wanted after being sent away by another clinic who had no idea! She immediately knew what to do to transform me. No messing around, careful, honest and kind. I’ve woken up a new woman so grateful to have been led by a lady with experience and skill.

I booked an appointment for lip fillers and masseter Botox. My lips were severely asymmetrical so I went to Nurse Jo to have them corrected and could not be happier with the results. I would highly recommend Hamilton Skin Clinic and without a doubt attest to Nurse Jo being the top cosmetic injector in Brisbane. Could not be more grateful!

Jo tailors what she does to suit my face and offers alternative approaches to achieving the outcome that I’m wanting. I’ve never felt pressured by her to adjust or get a treatment I wasn’t comfortable with and the results that she creates always exceed my expectations.

Highly recommend Harbour medispa…..

As a total novice I was terrified of looking.obviously done up. I was convinced subtlety couldn't really be achieved. I was so nervous about the results of my lip filler looking obvious against my soft features, but Jo worked genuine wonders. The result was believable, soft and subtle, a far cry from the protruding, stretched out lips I was desperate to avoid. I didn't think filler would be for me so I am particularly surprised by how confident I now feel, totally unafraid to see the people I know and love. Thank you, Jo!

What Are Wrinkle Reduction Injections?

Neuromodulators or neurotoxins – the substance used in wrinkle reduction injections – are most well-known for “freezing” wrinkles and lines. They are best used for temporary treatment to smooth wrinkles that form as a result of facial movements like frowning, squinting, and smiling.

Wrinkle reduction freezers work by blocking the release of acetylcholine, a chemical that signals muscles to move. They temporarily paralyse those specific muscles that contract, creating common frown lines, crow’s feet, and horizontal lines.

While there is no real downtime associated with this treatment, it is important to note that you may encounter some slight bruising and swelling directly after treatment, due to the needle. This can easily be masked by make-up.

There are no long-term side effects of having wrinkle injections, meaning patients can resume their usual activities straight away, and can also fly post-treatment.

The results can last between four to six months depending on your metabolism speed, lifestyle and many other factors. Expect to see the fantastic results within two to three days following just one treatment, but really kicking in by the second week post-treatment.

Frequently Asked Questions

Depending on the individual, patients may start feeling the effects by the next day, up to two weeks.

Teeth Grinding injections last from 3-6 months, after which time treatment can be repeated to maintain the benefit. Some patients may find that treatment helps them to break the cycle, so the habit stops even after the Botox has worn off.

Occasionally some localised bruising can occur, but this is quite rare and can usually be masked with makeup.

Overall, studies support the efficacy of wrinkle reduction injection treatments to reduce pain in the muscles of the jaw. One study shows that wrinkle reduction treatment, “reduces the frequency of bruxism events, decrease bruxism-induced pain levels and satisfy the patients’ self-assessment. In another study, all patients treated have declared “a good/very good improvement in symptoms.”
