About The Procedure
Patients suffering from migraine headaches, spasticity, myofascial pain, back pain, neck pain, or neuropathy are candidates for Botox injections which typically contain a solution of botulinum toxin and saline solution or local anesthetic. The injections are a minimally invasive treatment option most commonly known for its effect on wrinkles, but also found to be a highly effective form of pain therapy that can provide three to four months of relief.
Please shower and maintain good hygiene directly before and after the procedure to reduce chances of an infection developing.
Following the Botox injection, patients may experience mild side effects such as swelling, bruising, and some pain at the injection site(s). To relieve any discomfort, patients can apply ice to the treatment site and take over-the-counter pain killers. The effects of the Botox injection should begin to be felt within 10 to 14 days and are expected to last anywhere from two and a half to four months.
