For Therapeutic Applications
Botox® is a leading cosmetic treatment for lines and wrinkles but few people know that it is also used to prevent chronic migraine headaches. A chronic migraine condition is characterized by 15 or more headache and migraine days per month. The headaches last a minimum of 4 hours or longer and are accompanied by severe pain. Botox®Therapeutic works by blocking neurotransmitters carrying pain signals sent by the brain before they can affect the neck and shoulders.
Headaches can also result from excessive grinding of the teeth and jaw clenching while awake or sleeping (bruxism). Dr Kennea will skillfully inject Botox®Therapeutic into the large masseter muscle, which is responsible for moving your jaw. The muscle is then weakened enough to halt involuntary grinding and soften the appearance of the jawline.

How Does It Work?
There are proven sites on the neck and head where Botox Therapeutic® is injected to make its full impact. Remember, it’s a very fine needle and injections are placed into the shallow muscles of the head and neck (just beneath the skin.)
Dr Kennea skilfully injects Botox Therapeutic® into 7 key muscle areas of the head and neck (31 injections total), once every 12 weeks.
Like skin, results can vary from person to person. Book a free consultation with us to learn what you can expect and which treatment is best for you.
Absolutely love Dr Kenna and her amazing staff. During the consultation my questions about that and the many other treatments they offer were answered easily and with so much knowledge. I could truly feel the love and pride for their work. On top of it all, the price was very reasonable and I can’t wait to go back. Highly recommend!
