Botox for Migraines & TMJ
What is Botox®?
Botox® is an injectable treatment that has developed a reputation as an anti-aging treatment, reducing frown lines between the eyebrows. Botox® is an effective injectable treatment because it blocks nerve signals, relaxing the muscles into which it is injected. This effect can also be used to help patients manage pain from migraines or TMJ.
How Does Botox® Work for Migraines & TMJ?
In the same way it treats forehead wrinkles, Botox® can prevent muscle contractions in the jaw to address pain symptoms of TMJ. By relaxing jaw muscles responsible for aggressive jaw movements, patients enjoy a decrease in pain and soreness. For migraine patients, Botox® can block pain signals sent from the nerves to the brain. This effectively reduces the severity of migraine headaches and can even help reduce their frequency.
What is a Botox® Treatment Like?
A number of Botox® injections will be given in the appropriate area. This process is virtually painless and takes only a few minutes, so the full Botox® treatment is completed in less than half an hour.
Is There Any Downtime After Botox®?
Botox® is a popular treatment for patients with migraines and TMJ because it requires absolutely no downtime. Patients are able to return to work and other normal activities immediately after their appointment.
What Kind of Results Can I Expect After Botox®?
After your Botox® treatment, you will notice results within a few days and typically see the full effects of the procedure by 14 days. During this time, you can expect a relief in pain caused from migraines or TMJ. Some patients may experience mild redness or bruising in the treatment area, but these effects fade quickly. The results from Botox® can last up to six months, and patients often undergo regular treatments to maintain their results.
