If you have been experiencing pain from migraines and are looking for effective solutions to manage the symptoms, you can rely on us. On approval from the FDA, we now offer Botox® as an effective migraine treatment. Popularly known for its effects on smoothing wrinkles, Botox® has been proven as an effective preventive measure for chronic migraines.
What Are the Symptoms of Chronic Migraines?
One of the most severe forms of headache, chronic migraines can have drastic effects on your everyday life. Often, the headache is accompanied by sensitivity to sound and light as well as nausea. If you are experiencing this sharp pain at least 14-15 times a month, it is important to explore more effective treatment methods. When the recommendations are followed, Botox® can offer relief from migraines for up to three months at a time, making treatment minimal and less frequent.
First licensed to treat migraines in 2010, Botox® has provided excellent results for thousands of patients worldwide who suffer from migraines. Its paralyzing effects on the muscles are effective in not just reducing lines and wrinkles on your face but also minimizing the effects of muscle spasms and other painful movements which can cause migraines.
How Is Botox® Useful in Treating Migraines?
Before choosing Botox® as a treatment for migraines, we suggest that you speak with our doctors on the best way to approach your treatment. The recommended treatment by the FDA is to provide Botox® shots every 12 weeks in the head and neck area to minimize symptoms of headaches and migraines. On average, about 31 injections are delivered into seven locations in your head and neck to maximize the effects of the toxin and reduce pain and discomfort caused by migraines. It is important, however, to understand that Botox® can only limit pain and discomfort caused by chronic migraines and not other types of headaches.
Does Botox® Have Any Side Effects?
There may be noticeable side effects from Botox® injections, with the most common being neck pain and a slight headache. In more sensitive people, Botox® injections have occasionally led to side effects such as breathing or swallowing problems, blurred vision, muscle weakness, hoarseness, or double vision.
