Do you suffer from pain in your facial muscles or have chronic migraines and tension headaches? Do you have pain around your ears or jaw? Do you clench and grind your teeth? These all may be signs of TMJ (temporomandibular joint) disorder or other chronic orofacial pain problems.
Our doctors are trained to diagnose and treat these issues. We first conduct a thorough examination to determine the source of the pain and work with you to develop appropriate treatment plan. Possible therapy options include:
• jaw exercises and stretches
• restorative dentistry
• bruxism appliances or mouthguards
A great non-surgical option are Botox injections into your chewing muscles and other muscles in your head and neck area. Botox works by relaxing hyperactive muscles, thus lessening the force of chewing, grinding, and clenching that often leads to inflammation, pain, and damage to the teeth. Treatment is minimally invasive, painless, and can be completed in as little as 15 minutes. You will start to notice results within days and will find relief anywhere from 3-6 months. Over time, your muscles will re-train themselves and many patients find that their therapeutic dosages decrease, and treatment lasts longer. Don't live in silent pain any longer! Call 215-357-1180 for a consult today.
BOTOX® Cosmetic is an FDA approved therapy to smooth skin and reduce the look of wrinkles caused by our muscles of facial expression (e.g. frown lines, forehead lines, and crow's feet). BOTOX® Cosmetic relaxes these muscles and allows the overlying skin to naturally heal the wrinkles, thus turning back time and bringing out your natural beauty. Treatments are quick, painless, and you can return to normal activities right away. You'll start to notice the effects within a few days and can last anywhere from 3-6 months. Dr. Katherine is specially trained with facial esthetics in mind, so you will continue to look and feel natural with no "frozen face" appearance. Call today to start looking and feeling like a younger you!
What is BOTOX® Cosmetic/Xeomin?
BOTOX® Cosmetic/Xeomin both contain purified botulinum toxin proteins that will relax treated muscles and allows the overlying skin to naturally heal fine lines and wrinkles. This also reduces the forces of clenching/grinding and relieves pain from migraines and tension headaches.
Are BOTOX® Cosmetic/Xeomin safe?
Yes, both BOTOX® Cosmetic and Xeomin have been thoroughly researched and tested over many decades and are deemed to be very safe.
How do BOTOX® Cosmetic/Xeomin treatments work?
BOTOX® Cosmetic/Xeomin treatments are non-surgical, minimally invasive, and simple procedures. At your first visit Dr. Katherine will perform a thorough examination and consult to develop a proper individualized treatment plan to fit your specific needs. At your next visit Dr. Katherine will treat all desired areas. Discomfort is minimal and patients can return to work/normal activity right away. The entire procedure typically lasts ~20 minutes. Patients will then return for a follow up visit 2-4 weeks later to monitor treatment outcomes and make any enhancements as needed.
When will I see results and how long does will BOTOX® Cosmetic/Xeomin treatments last?
Patients will start to see results from treatment anywhere from 3-5 days, but can take up to 10 days to see full therapeutic results. Treatment usually lasts anywhere from 3-6 months. Over time and continued treatments, patients will typically notice the treatments lasting longer and the dosage of BOTOX® Cosmetic/Xeomin decrease to receive desired outcomes.
What are side effects from BOTOX® Cosmetic/Xeomin?
The most common side effects are mild bruising, small red bumps at injection sites, and headaches. It is extremely important to avoid touching your face and vigorous activity for a minimum of 4 hours after treatment.
Will my facial expressions continue to look natural?
Yes. Dr. Katherine's training allows her to be able to dictate the proper dosages that you need to get noticeable results while maintaining a natural look. Untreated muscles will continue to work as normal, so you will still be able to make facial expressions and maintain your everyday appearance.
How do I know if BOTOX® Cosmetic/Xeomin is right for me?
