In brief: No

As far as I know there are no dental procedures that utilize Botox.
The restrictions for who is legally able to inject Botox varies by state, but I don't imagine that most states allow hygienists to inject Botox (my state does not).

In brief: No

Botox is a tool, it can cause beneficial effects as well as problems.
I would insist a physician administer my treatment. There are plenty of well trained physicians that inject botox.

In brief: No

No, dental hygienists have no use for Botox for the kind of work they do.
And in most states, if not all, only a physician, a nurse, or a dentist can do Botox injections.
