Botox Q & A

What is Botox?

Botox is the brand name of the most popular form of botulinum toxin, an injectable medication that is commonly used as an anti-aging product as well as a treatment to relieve chronic pain related to muscle tension and spasm. As one of the most popular injectable medications, Botox is extensively researched for safety and effectiveness.

Dr. Turok offers Botox at Comprehensive Neurology and Pain Center of Connecticut because he understands the impact that chronic muscle tension and pain can have on your overall well-being. He aims to provide gentle treatments to help you get out of pain and enjoy more relaxed, flexible muscles for pain-free movement.

How does Botox work?

The botulinum toxin in Botox is a neurotoxin that temporarily paralyzes your muscles. When injected into specific areas where you have pain, Botox relaxes your muscles, relieving the associated pain.

Since your muscles don’t contract as intensely when they’ve been treated with Botox, the procedure can also provide long-lasting relief from chronic pain conditions. Dr. Turok recommends an appropriate dosage of Botox based on the number of areas you want treated and the severity of your condition.

What chronic pain conditions can Botox help?

Botox is used to treat chronic pain conditions, like:

  • Migraine headaches
  • Spasticity
  • Blepharospasms, or twitching eyelids
  • Hemifacial spasms
  • Neuropathic pain

Botox may also be used to relieve muscle pain and associated neck pain, back pain, and headaches caused by chronic muscle tension.

How long does Botox last?

In most cases, a single Botox treatment lasts 3-6 months, depending on how your body metabolizes the medication. Botox can be combined with other treatments and therapies to provide you with a completely customized recovery plan so you can enjoy lasting relief.

At your consultation, Dr. Turok determines how many injections are needed based on the size of the treatment area and the number of muscles that are involved. Each injection includes a small dose of Botox, with multiple injections needed to cover larger areas or more muscles.

The injections take only a few minutes to perform and feel like a pinch or prick, similar to having blood drawn from your arm. The medication begins working immediately to relax your muscles.

Full Stories Of Why
Clients Are Satisfied With Our Treatments

Dr. Turok spent the time to discuss my condition and provided alternative ways to try to treat the condition.  He was very knowledgeable. He and his staff were very friendly.   I would highly recommend this practice. This a follow up to my previous post. Six weeks ago I had PRP treatment for hemifacial spasm and blepharospasm for the left side of my face.  I had been suffering for almost 18 months with this condition. The one treatment gave me 75% improvement with my condition.   I had a second treatment today and hope this is as good as the first. For those who have tried other treatments I highly recommend trying the PRP with Dr. Turok.

I have been recovering from plantar fasciitis and ankle pain for multiple years following multiple basketball injuries and decided to try out Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) therapy a couple of weeks ago. Plantar fasciitis takes a while to recover, so on paper, injecting platelet cells directly into the area will promote healing and speed up this lengthy recovery process so I can get back to my favorite activities as fast as possible. Sure enough, a couple of days after the PRP injection my foot started feeling better. The inflammation has drastically decreased and a lot of pain has gone away. Now, two weeks after the procedure, the foot is still feeling great! Dr. Turok recommends resting the area for 6 weeks after the procedure, so I can only project my injury getting better. Overall, my experience at Connecticut Pain Solutions has been very pleasant. The staff is very friendly and Dr. Turok himself is very knowledgeable and experienced in his practice. The procedure is very quick and painless, so I would highly recommend it to anyone looking to try out new things that might help them during their recovery!

I'm 101 years old and have been in chronic pain in my back and hip for years. I have tried every medication and procedure that has been recommended to me. The only treatment that has given me meaningful relief is the PRP injection provided by Dr. Turok. I am extremely thankful for the relief I am currently experiencing.
