BOTOX® (onabotulinumtoxinA) is an alternative option of treatment for patients who struggle with TMJ disorder or severe migraine headaches. This type of non-surgical treatment involves the injection of a medication into the facial muscles to help relieve tension and discomfort.
BOTOX involves no incisions, stitches or surgery, so you can resume your daily routine directly following your appointment. This also means that your treatment will be comfortable and fast, often only requiring 10-30 minutes of treatment time depending on the number of injections needed. At our practice, our team will simply inject the medication into the muscles. We may use ice or a topical numbing cream before the treatment to numb the injection site and ensure that you feel completely comfortable during the procedure. You may begin noticing improvements as soon as 24 to 48 hours after the treatment, and your BOTOX results can typically last up to four months.
