Botox is commonly used for wrinkle reduction as a cosmetic treatments
. Botox is injected into the areas of the face where wrinkles, fine lines and frown lines appear in order to smoothen underlying muscles that cause the wrinkles. What you may not know, however, is that Botox is also approved for and widely used for purely medical purposes to control muscle spasms and treat certain neurological disorders.
Amazingly, Botox injections can also treat certain types of Migraine headaches. The fact that Botox is used to alleviate the side effects associated with migraines was discovered by accident when patients treated for cosmetic reasons reported improvements in their migraine headaches following their Botox treatments. Since then medical studies were arranged to test the effects of Botox injections on patients suffering from Chronic Daily Headaches. In some cases Botox therapeutic patients experienced relief of their migraine headaches for up to six months following their treatment!
In many cases the use of Botox therapeutic treatment for migraines is preferred over traditional migraine medication because effects of a single injection can last for up to six months thereby eliminating the need and expense of other drugs and any side effects associated with traditional migraine medication.
An increasing number of dermatologists and neurologists have been using Botox® for treating migraines. Botox for treatment of migraines may be covered by extended insurance and benefit plans.

Botox Therapeutic is also now available for TMJ disorder, teeth grinding (bruxism), and teeth clenching. All of these can all cause extreme pain and disrupt daily life. Fortunately, all of these problems can be treated with Botox Therapeutic, which relaxes the muscles that control the jaw (temporomandibular) joint. In the past, traditional treatments such as dental splints or night guards were used to treat these conditions. However, Botox Therapeutic injections deliver targeted treatment to the source of the problem and allow you to enjoy your life free from pain. Botox Therapeutic treatments will last on the TMJ condition for approximately 3-4 months. Maintenance Botox Therapeutic injections are required for long-term treatment of TMJ disorders.
