Yes, some swelling and bruising may be expected after subcision. Swelling generally takes a couple of days to subside while the bruising may take up to 2 weeks. Medications can also be prescribed by your treating physician if the swelling and bruising are uncomfortable/tender, and to aid in the swelling post-procedure.
The main muscle associated with teeth-clenching is the Masseter (jaw muscle). Botox is administered into this muscle to relax it so that the bite/clench will not be as strong. This helps to alleviate the symptoms/discomfort of teeth clenching such as headaches, widened jaw, teeth damage, facial pain and pain in the jaw joint (Temporomandibular Joint). Once treated, results can last up to 6 - 8 months before the procedure is repeated again. I will personally recommend administering the injection to a relaxed jaw since it will be less painful and uncomfortable for the patient.
The scars that you have are pigmented scars due to inflammation and injury to the skin caused by the flea bites. Treatment will be a combination of: lightening creams and pigment lasers. Untreated, these scars will eventually fade. However, these scars can take a long time to do so. It may take up to several months or even, more than a year. Medical treatments (as mentioned above) are aimed to quicken this fading process. Thus, improvement can be seen as quickly as within a month. There are many types of pigment lasers available. Therefore, you should always consult a doctor.
