Certain conditions frequently cause pain and inflammation. The traditional approach to addressing these issues is medications like nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs). However, alternatives do exist and can provide long-lasting relief safely and effectively. At Infinity Wellness, we offer toxin therapy using BOTOX® Cosmetic to address inflammation and pain. Get in touch to learn more about this treatment and how it can help.


What Causes Pain and inflammation?

A variety of issues can cause pain and inflammation. Some common conditions that cause joint pain, for example, include arthritis, tendinitis, and certain viral infections. The root cause of your discomfort must be identified by a qualified physician to determine the proper treatment. We will discuss what you’re experiencing and whether toxin therapy is right for you during your initial consultation.

How Is This Issue Addressed?

Injectable treatments like BOTOX® Cosmetic can provide long-term relief for pain and inflammation. These injectables include botulinum toxin type A, a toxin produced by a bacterium called clostridium botulinum. When diluted and injected in small amounts, this toxin can block certain nerve signals. This can be used to block pain, treat uncontrolled muscle contractions, and relax chronically contracted muscles.

What Can I Expect?

The injection process takes little time and typically starts by numbing the skin where the injections will be administered, using a local anesthetic. A thin needle is used to inject BOTOX® Cosmetic, and you should not experience any significant discomfort. The injection takes about 10-15 minutes and requires no downtime afterward. It may take some time for the effects to be felt, but results will last for 3-6 months.
