Treating Facial, Head, and Neck Pain
Dr. Monroe is skilled in identifying and addressing facial pain. She can help treat and minimize aching trigger points and muscles throughout the head and neck using botulinum toxin (Botox/Xeomin). When the muscles of the jaw are properly treated, botulinum toxin lessens the contraction of these muscles. In turn, this decreases the amount of force they are exerting. As the muscle’s strength decreases due to botulinum toxin, the muscle will relax more and pain often dissipates as a result.
Botulinum toxin has been FDA approved for the treatment of headaches and migraines. Muscles in the head and neck relax when botulinum toxin is injected. Many patients begin to feel the full effects of this treatment within a week. Pain begins to fade in the muscles and trigger points after subsequent treatments due to relaxation after continual deactivation.
Benefits of Botox and Dermal Fillers
Botox and dermal fillers offer multiple benefits to patients:
- Easy recovery with minimal downtime
- Reduction in fine lines and wrinkles
- Minimally invasive treatment
- Temporary results (no long term commitment)
- Can reduce headaches
These cosmetic solutions also erase facial wrinkles. Dermal fillers can be injected underneath the skin to add shape and volume to the skin. Facial sagging that is often caused by dental problems like missing teeth is targeted with cosmetic filler treatment.
