How Is Therapeutic Botox Different From Cosmetic Botox?

- Does getting Botox hurt? The procedure is very comfortable. You will feel a tiny pinch when we insert the needles, but we use the best and smallest needles for patient comfort.
- Will my dental insurance cover Botox? Currently, Botox is considered an out-of-pocket expense.
However, patients are entitled to bill their insurance providers if they wish.
South Shore ProsthodonticsThis link leads to Home page will provide any documents required to support and facilitate a claim, if needed.
- Will I bruise after the injections? Like any injection, there is always a potential risk of bruising. However, it is minimal because we use tiny needles.
- Can I go in the heat or exercise after treatment? It is recommended for the first 2-3 days to stay away from heat and straining from exercise. This gives Botox enough time to be well absorbed by the muscles. You should not touch and rub the areas of the injections within the first four hours.
- When will I start seeing the results? It takes 2-10 days for the Botox to take effect. You will schedule a 2-week follow-up appointment for possible enhancements if needed by injecting more Botox. If enhancements are needed, you will not be charged.
- Can I get nerve damage with Botox? Botox is injected in the muscles, not the nerves. There is always a chance to affect an undesired muscle, which can cause temporary palsy, but we took the best training and our approach is very conservative: Less is more. During your Botox injections, we start with lower doses to prevent an excess of Botox. We do provide a free enhancement after two weeks to evaluate the results.
