Botox injections to treat migraines and headaches
If you experience frequent migraines, Botox injections may help reduce headache frequency. While the reasons why Botox helps people who suffer with migraines are not fully understood it is likely that it relaxes the muscles around the head and, thereby, reducing blood pressure within the brain. Btx may also play a role in reducing the nerves’ ability to send pain signals during a migraine.
Botox injections to treat teeth grinding (Bruxism)
Teeth Grinding is the unconscious grinding and clenching of the teeth that mostly takes place while we are asleep. It affects around one in four adults, with symptoms that can include:
Botox for bruxism is injected into the masseter muscle just below the cheekbone and the frontalis. This weakens the muscles to reduce clenching of the teeth and grinding which can result in pain and headaches. The treatment relaxes the muscle to stop the involuntary movements. Treatments for teeth grinding focus mainly on preventing dental damage. New studies have shown that using Botox for bruxism could effectively stop grinding in the first place.
Before you have Botox injections you should be evaluated by your dentist and doctor as well as a maxillofacial specialist, a surgeon who specialises in the teeth, jaws neck and head.
After this consultation, you should be clear on your diagnosis and better informed to choose your treatment. Your dentist may recommend trying other measures first. If you tend to grid during the night a mouth guard is recommended.
Botox injections for sweating under the armpits. Botox injections block the nerve signals responsible for sweating, stopping the sweat glands from producing too much sweat. Follow-up treatments are typically needed in four to six months. However, some patients can go longer between treatments.
Botox is one of the most effective treatments for patients with Bell’s palsy or partial facial paralysis. Over activity of some facial muscles may occur following facial nerve palsy. This can lead to unwanted movements in parts of the face. For example, the eye may close when chewing and smiling or spontaneous facial twitching can occur. Botox injections applied to the affected area temporarily paralyses the underlying muscles and stops the unwanted movement.
Botox injections are relatively safe. Though minor side effects can occur and include:
Who performs the treatment?
Botox treatments should be administered by an experienced, highly trained practitioner, in a clean and hygienic medical environment. It’s important that injections be placed precisely in order to avoid side effects. Botox therapy can be risky if it’s administered incorrectly.
