Botox Treatment for Chronic Migraines
A migraine is not just a headache. It is a severe, debilitating headache often accompanied by symptoms other than head pain — lightheadedness, sensitivity to light, nausea, vomiting and visual disturbances.
If you suffer from 15 or more migraines per month, we will evaluate your head pain and provide a Botox treatment plan.
Who should receive Botox treatment?
Botox treatment has shown to be effective for those with chronic migraines.
What does Botox treatment involve?
The complete Botox treatment for chronic migraine requires 31 small injections to seven key areas of the head, neck, and shoulders. The injections cause slight discomfort and, if effective, are repeated every three months.
Is Botox treatment safe and effective?
When performed by an expert in the injection technique, Botox injections are generally safe. The effectiveness of the treatment is noticed about a week following the injection cycle, peaking around six weeks following and fading within about three months. Some patients notice a difference following their first treatment, while others may not feel relief until treatment is repeated.
