Botox effect on saliva production
- This is an unusual complication - usually the masseter muscle is easily felt, so Botox can be injected directly.
- I agree with you that the Botox was probably not injected into the muscle
- Botox effects like this are not permanent and the glands will not be permanently damaged.
- The effect is probably not on saliva production but on the muscles that eject saliva into the mouth.
- On average it takes 3 months for Botox effects to wear off - up to a year in some people.
- A dry mouth can cause dental problems - so be sure to floss every day, rinse you mouth with dry mouth rinse as often as needed and suck sugar-free hard candy to help to stimulate production.
Always see a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon.
