What is Botox?
Botox is the most popular and prominent brand of neuromodulator. It’s an injectable medication that alters the way that motor nerves within your muscles communicate with those muscles for a temporary time.
The key ingredient in Botox is botulinum toxin. This is the component that affects your nerves. Novo Wellness provides careful, well-planned Botox injections to safely target muscles causing pain or cosmetic concerns after you attend a thorough consultation and discuss your treatment goals and expectations.
Which issues can Botox address?
Botox is highly versatile and can treat a range of conditions and concerns. Novo Wellness might recommend Botox as a treatment for:
Chronic migraines are migraines that occur at least 15 days of the month, and they can have a severe impact on your professional and personal life. Botox injections can help reduce the number of migraines you get per month.
Temporomandibular joint disorder (TMJ)
TMJ involves the joints connecting your lower jawbone to your temples, which allow you to open and close your mouth. TMJ disorders can cause painful or uncomfortable jaw tension, which Botox injections can help relieve.
Botox can also relieve headaches that occur as the result of this jaw tension.
Torticollis causes the muscles in your neck to flex abnormally and tilt your head downward. In some cases, it’s congenital. Other cases develop in babies after birth.
Botox helps these muscles relax so you can move your neck more freely and comfortably.
Wrinkles and fine lines
The most well-known use for Botox is the smoothing of fine facial lines like crow’s feet or frown lines. Botox relaxes the facial muscle movements that subconsciously form these lines over time.
How long does Botox last?
Depending on the targeted muscles, Botox can last 3-6 months.
After your first time trying the treatment, you can predict how long the effects last for you.
Can I get Botox more than once?
If you consider your first Botox treatment to be a success, you can get repeated Botox injections as you need them. Novo Wellness helps you schedule your appointments at regular intervals.
Botox injections can make a difference in discomfort from conditions like chronic migraines and TMJ. To find out if you’re a candidate for clinical or cosmetic Botox injections, call Novo Wellness or book an appointment online today.
