Frequently Asked Questions

  • Is Therapeutic Botox covered by OHIP?

    Unfortunately not at this time. However some dental insurance plans may cover the injection fee and some drug plans may cover the therapeutic Botox itself.

  • How much Botox will I need?

    Typical headache cases in order to reach a therapeutic dosage, 100 units of Botox Therapeutic will be required. Particularly muscular patients may require more units.

    For symptoms involving TMJ, they may require additional injections into the muscles of mastication, which could be an additional 150 units.

  • What are the side effects of Therapeutic Botox?

    Potential side effects include reduced mobility of the muscles treated, relaxation of static wrinkles and elimination of dynamic wrinkles. Improved skin smoothness and some patients notice a reduction in blemishes/acne. Reduced anxiety and an overall sense of well-being.

  • How long will the effects of Therapeutic Botox last?

    Typical cases last approximately 3 months. Some people may experience longer lasting effects. People who exercise and are very active may experience a shorter duration of effect. Optimally receiving recare injections every 3 months prior to cessation of the effect of Botox therapeutic will ensure no relapse and after a couple years may extend the duration of effects.

  • Will Therapeutic Botox cure me right away?

    No, it may take up to 2 weeks to achieve the full onset of effects. You may notice a few side effects shortly after injection date such as some restricted movements or mood enhancement but the full potential is 2 weeks.

  • Does Therapeutic Botox hurt?

    Not at all. We use ice packs and cold to eliminate the sensation from the injections.

New patients are always welcome. Evening hours are available.
