Finding relief from headaches and muscle discomfort can sometimes be difficult. That said, non-cosmetic BOTOX® may be a solution for you.

What Is Non-Cosmetic BOTOX?

Produced by the bacterium Clostridium botulinum, BOTOX, or onabotulinumtoxinA, is a toxin that blocks neurotransmitters. When properly used in small doses, it can help relax muscles and is approved by the FDA (Food and Drug Administration) for cosmetic and non-cosmetic purposes.

When Is It Used?

Cosmetically, BOTOX can be used to smooth wrinkles and lines across the face. Non-cosmetically, BOTOX is used to treat:

The treatment can be completed in just one visit and is administered through injection. Patients can expect results within the next 24 to 48 hours, which can last for months at a time. However, non-cosmetic BOTOX treatments, like other BOTOX treatments, are only temporary. If you continue to experience discomfort, we recommend visiting your primary physician for additional care.
