Medically Necessary Botulism Toxin Injections: Safe and Effective Pain Management

Spasms in the Muscles Around the Eye

Toxin can help patients who suffer from eyelid muscle spasms, blepharospasms which can cause involuntary, frequent blinking and painful irritation, and twitching of the eyelids. When the eyelid muscles spasm, even the simplest activities, like driving and using a computer, become significantly more challenging. These spasms and cramps can be alleviated by receiving a toxin injection into the muscles that control the eyelids.

Hyperhidrosis

Hyperhidrosis or excessive underarm sweating, can occur without heat or exercise. Providers can inject Botox to slow sweat glands and reduce sweating.

Many medical diagnoses respond very well to treatment with Botox injections. We can provide information on a case-by-case basis in regard to the potential insurance reimbursement for treatment with toxin. If needed we can refer you to a provider who can help to bill your insurance.

Migraines

Migraines are debilitating headaches that frequently come with other symptoms like nausea and increased sensitivity to light and sound. Migraines often last four hours or longer and often recur, sometimes daily, at which point they are considered chronic.


Toxin injections into the muscles of the face and neck have been shown to reduce the frequency and severity of migraine headaches. A patient's migraines may originate in the head and neck muscles.

Platysmal Neck Bands

Treating platysmal bands with botulinum toxin leads to reduced predominance of the platysma muscles by simply relaxing the neck muscles.

Trigger Point Injection

Injecting these large muscles (the muscle group runs from the base of the neck across the shoulders and down the upper part of the back) with toxin helps them to relax and, in turn, improve posture, neck and shoulder stiffness, and pain, and create more of a contoured and elongated neck.
