Firstly, Botox is well diluted in water so that it does not cause any reaction on the patient’s face. Afterward, the region is correctly cleaned to avoid contamination by pathogens. Afterward, the surgeon performs small anesthesia in the area of application, which is practically painless and does not cause any discomfort.
Finally, the application itself is made with the aid of a very fine needle. Therefore, the entire procedure is entirely painless and performed in a relatively short time, during which the patient will be awake and conscious. Therefore, your dentist will constantly be informing you about the processes that are carried out.
What Care Is Needed Before And After Treatment?
The first precaution that must be taken in botox like Jawline Botox (ฉีด ลด กราม which is the term in Thai) is in the moments just before the procedure. It is necessary to carry out a series of tests — such as X-rays and even specific complementary tests — to ensure that all is well with the patient’s health. After all, even though this is a minimally invasive procedure, it is always good to be careful with your health!
After the procedure, it is also essential that the recommendations given by the dentist (concerning rest, medications that should be taken, etc.) are strictly followed. This will ensure successful treatment and avoid potential problems. Also, remember to clear all your doubts first, ok?
Finally, check with your treating dentist whether “touch-ups” — that is, other applications — will need to be done in the future. Generally, a space of six or more months can be recommended for this, but it will all depend on each case and your intended goals with the procedure.
What Are The Indications For This Type Of Treatment?
There are, in general, a series of indications for the treatment of dental botox. Below, let’s see some of the main ones, the most recurrent in the daily lives of surgeons and their patients:
- face pain;
- gummy smile;
- facial asymmetry;
- dystonia (muscle spasms).
However, it is worth noting that not all people with these problems can or will need botox treatment. The dentist responsible for your case will assess your actual needs, and based on exams and conversations with you, will decide if this is the best therapeutic course for your case.
