What Are Some Benefits?

Ease Your Clenching

Xeomin is frequently used in dentistry to manage temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorders and bruxism (teeth grinding). The symptoms of TMJ include headaches, jaw pain, and difficulty chewing. Bruxism can result in chipped teeth, worn enamel, and jaw discomfort. Xeomin works by relaxing the muscles involved in clenching and grinding, relieving these uncomfortable symptoms.

Smooth Out Wrinkles and Lines

Seeking to turn back the clock? Xeomin is also an efficient wrinkle treatment. Xeomin is FDA approved to treat forehead lines and can even be used preventatively to treat muscles around the forehead, eyes and mouth to prevent fine lines before they form.

Protect Your Pearly Whites
The relaxed muscles achieved with Xeomin can also positively impact your teeth. By reducing the excessive force placed on your teeth due to grinding, this treatment can help prevent future damage and preserve your smile.
