Are you experiencing myofascial pain, or a “knot” in your muscle? These “knots” are called trigger points that can be caused by tension, stress, or trauma in the area, and can make taking part in daily activities painful or uncomfortable. Trigger point injections are a great option for those with chronic muscle pain who are seeking relief.

At Art Aesthetica, trigger point injections involve the injection of a local anesthetic, as well as a corticosteroid or botulinum toxin directly into the trigger point. However, in some cases, local anesthetic alone may be injected.

Benefits of Trigger Point Injections

Trigger point injections are generally considered a safe treatment and can provide relief from pain and discomfort for those with chronic muscle pain. Trigger point injections can also provide great improvement in the range of motion and overall functionality of the treated muscle(s).

Treatment Areas

Trigger point injections can be used in many areas of the body, including:

  • Masseter (in the jaw)
  • Gluteus medius (in the hip)
  • Levator scapulae (side of the neck)
  • Trapezius (a muscle that extends over the back of the neck and shoulders)
  • Temporalis (sides of the head)
  • And more


At Art Aesthetica, we use this treatment for the following:

I enjoyed meeting Dr. Skura. I found her to be sympathetic and professional at the same time. In my experience (in 3 countries) a good internist learns enough about each patient so they can judge when a problem is serious. I feel Dr. Skura fits this description.”
