Botox Q & A

What is Botox?

Botox is something you probably know best as an aesthetic treatment for forehead lines and crow’s feet around the eyes. But in addition to its wrinkle-reducing abilities, pain specialists like Dr. Loomba use Botox to treat some forms of pain.

Botox is another form of aesthetic treatment that may be used to reduce some forms of pain in addition to eliminating wrinkles.

How does Botox work?

Botox is helpful to treat conditions of tightening muscles. Often, these Botox injections can be used to treat severe Migraines.

As a result, the muscles don’t receive signals telling them to contract. Your soft tissues relax, reducing pain and improving normal movement in the area.

What conditions does Botox treat?

Botox is helpful for conditions where painful tightening of the muscle fibers or connective tissues occurs. This could be due to conditions like myofascial pain syndrome or chronic muscle spasms.

One of the conditions for which Dr. Loomba most often uses Botox is migraines. Migraines are recurring headaches of particular intensity.

What does medical Botox treatment involve?

Dr. Loomba uses a fine needle, for minimal pain, to inject the Botox into the head and neck every three months. If you are scared of needles or the pain from the needles, Dr. Loomba can apply an anesthetic cream to limit the discomfort from the injection. Typically, the injection starts making relief in the intensity of the pain after 2-3 weeks. The effects of the injection may last for 12 weeks, so most patients require 4 treatments a year.
