BOTOX® has been approved by the FDA for treatment of conditions other than the more commonly known cosmetic uses. BOTOX (onabotulinumtoxinA) is a medication injected into various parts of the body to temporarily relieve symptoms of various conditions, such as bruxism, chronic migraines and TMJ disorders.

BOTOX works as a temporary solution for TMJ disorders and other conditions because when the medication is injected into your body, it temporarily blocks pain signals from the nerves to the muscles. BOTOX treatments are safe when performed by a certified BOTOX provider.

The amount of BOTOX used for each patient varies based on muscle mass and the severity of the condition being treated. Injections are most often made around your jaw, neck or ears to soothe symptoms and pain. BOTOX involves no surgery, incisions or stitches, and is an outpatient procedure. Since BOTOX treatment is performed with a single needle, there are few, if any, marks left on your skin.

We invite you to call our office to learn more about non-cosmetic BOTOX treatments and to make your consultation appointment today.
