BOTOX®/Xeomin® treatment is a revolutionary approach to reversing the effects of facial wrinkles along with treating clenching, bruxism and myofacial pain. Cosmetic and therapeutic treatment is completed by injecting botox into the facial muscles that create wrinkles or are used when clenching/grinding.
BOTOX®/Xeomin® injections are performed without anesthesia because it is virtually painless. Only a very small sting is felt when the injections are made. The effects are not permanent and may need to be repeated two to four times per year to retain the effects. Research has suggested, however, that long term use of the injections leads to a longer duration of each treatment’s effect.
After the treatment patients may experience slight bruising around the area that quickly fades. Possible side effects are temporary weakness of nearby muscles or in rare cases an eyelid may droop. BOTOX®/Xeomin® are completely reversible so any side effect is only a temporary condition.
