Botox® is not just for wrinkles. The therapeutic effects can also make Botox® for headaches and so much more.
Botox® works by blocking a neurotransmitter that tells muscles to contract. Contracted muscles in the head and neck are thought to cause some migraines. It’s also believed that Botox® reduces the pain messages sent to the brain.
BOTOX® is used as an alternative treatment for TMJ (temporo-mandibular joint) disorders and associated jaw tension and pain. When injected into facial muscles afflicted with soreness and discomfort, BOTOX® relieves TMJ and jaw tension for many patients. The injections often eliminate headaches resulting from teeth grinding.
