Botox for Migraines
Those who suffer from migraines know that they are debilitating and disrupt day-to-day life. Patients often don’t find relief from traditional methods. Botox is an FDA-approved treatment for chronic migraines and has proven to be highly effective in reducing the frequency of migraines in many patients. At Hermann Wellness, our expert injectors offer Botox as a treatment for migraines, as well as for cosmetic concerns, to help patients achieve migraine pain relief.
What Is a Migraine?
Migraine is a common condition that causes debilitating headaches. Unlike regular headaches, migraines are intense and can cause symptoms including nausea, vomiting, light and sound sensitivity, numbness, tingling, and trouble speaking.
People can experience migraines at any age. Some individuals experience migraines during childhood, but it may also begin in the early adult years. Genetics are a prevalent cause of migraines, given that they frequently run in families.
How Botox Works for Migraine Pain
Botox injections can provide significant relief from migraine pain. For many patients, Botox reduces the frequency of chronic migraines by 50 percent. Some patients may experience as much as an 80 percent decrease in chronic migraines after Botox treatment. For most, the maximum benefit is experienced after the second or third Botox treatment.
For migraines, our expert injectors inject Botox into the temples, the back of the head, and the trapezius. Injections may also be administered in areas that are common for cosmetic concerns, including the forehead and frown line area. This allows patients to easily receive Botox injections for migraines and cosmetic concerns at the same time.
Relief from migraines lasts for about three months after Botox treatment, though results may last for four months for some patients.
