XEOMIN to Reduce Lines and Wrinkles
XEOMIN (incobotulinumtoxinA) is an FDA-approved cosmetic injectable, and it is often used to treat moderate to severe frown lines between the eyebrows, crow’s feet, and lines and wrinkles on the forehead. XEOMIN works by blocking the nerves and muscles in the treated area so that they cannot move. This reduces muscle activity and relaxes the skin, reducing the appearance of lines and wrinkles. XEOMIN has also been known to effectively treat “gummy” smiles.
XEOMIN to Treat TMJ Disorders
In addition to providing a cosmetic benefit, XEOMIN also helps to relieve TMJ disorders and improve your oral function and quality of life. XEOMIN is an excellent treatment for TMJ disorders because it works by freezing the muscles in a particular area. This decreases your body’s ability for the large clenching muscles in the jaw to be hyperactive, reducing the strain and knots in the jaw. After two or three XEOMIN treatments, most patients lose the habit of grinding and clenching, which can drastically reduce the discomfort and problems associated with TMJ disorders. When you visit Mirci Dental, Dr. Dan will examine your jaw to determine the cause of your TMJ and whether or not XEOMIN is a good option for you. We will keep you informed of all your options so that you can make an informed decision for yourself.
XEOMIN treatments usually take just a few minutes to complete – in fact, total treatment time is typically 10-20 minutes. No anesthesia is needed, although Dr. Dan may offer a topical anesthetic or a cold pack to reduce any potential discomfort. Results from XEOMIN are usually seen three to five days following treatment, with the full effect taking up to 2 weeks to appear and typically lasting three to six months.
