  • Smokers lines
  • Dimpled chin
  • Gummy smile

  • TMD, facial muscle pain and headaches (when the cause is suspected to be muscular in origin)

How do I know if I need wrinkle relaxers?

  • If you notice lines/wrinkles at rest then this is an indication that relaxing the muscle underneath may help to soften the appearance of the line.
  • If you suffer from TMD / Jaw Pain, wrinkle relaxer may be an answer! TMD is a dysfunction and pain of the jaw joint and associated muscles. It is a complex condition and often involves stress, genetic factors and trauma to the joint. Day time and/or night time grinding is often associated and leads to tooth wear and fractures, a reduced lower face length, facial muscle tenderness and chronic headaches/migraines.

Treatment Options for TMD
