Did you know Botox doesn’t just treat fine lines and wrinkles? Trigger Point Botox injections are an excellent solution to directly address many medical conditions. Therapeutic Botox injections at OMNI SCULPT MD Medical Spa in Dallas, TX, provide an effective pain solution for many patients. Many patients get trigger points, or painful places, in their muscles that are very sensitive to touch or pressure. Therapeutic Botox is also excellent for repetitive micro-trauma movements and treating stress in muscle fibers. We’ll dive into everything you need to know about Therapeutic Botox Injections.
How Does Botox Work?
Whether you’re getting Botox to ease symptoms of medical conditions or for fine lines and wrinkles, the Botox ingredients do the same type of thing. Botox is made from a toxin produced by the bacterium Clostridium botulinum. In small doses, it can do magical work. The ingredients work to block nerves that send signals for your muscles to contract. The nerves and muscles relax and help your body perform better.
Therapeutic Botox vs. Cosmetic Botox
Botox works by limiting or blocking the activity of nerves, muscles, and glands. Cosmetic Botox is typically used to address facial fine lines and wrinkles. It relaxes the muscles to smooth the areas on your face. Therapeutic Botox is generally used to relieve medical conditions. It helps reduce muscle and nerve activity to help reduce pain or symptoms caused by specific conditions.
Therapeutic Botox for Medical Conditions
Triggered injections focus on specific areas to help alleviate symptoms caused by some medical conditions. Therapeutic Botox is mainly used to help treat:
- Chronic Migraines – If you have 15 or more headaches a month, Botox can help block chemicals in the body that send pain signals from your brain.
- Excessive Sweating – Botox is often injected into areas of excessive sweating. The Botox ingredients work to block the signals to your brain that cause involuntary body functions.
- Temporomandibular Joint Dysfunction – Botox can help ease jaw tension and pain caused by TMJ and TMJ by relaxing the muscles and joints.
- Muscle Spasms – Botox helps treat upper limb spasticity and muscle spasms in the neck by blocking chemical signals from nerves.
- Bruxism – By injecting Botox into the muscle that moves the jaw, the muscle is weak enough to stop the involuntary movements of unconsciously grinding your teeth.
Botox Injection Results
Once your Botox injections are completed, you can return to your normal life. The results of Botox will vary. Most Botox injections last for three to six months. You will need additional injections every few months to maintain the same level of results. We will work with you to ensure the Therapeutic Botox is doing its job. It is not a cure, but it should help alleviate your symptoms.
