Botox For Migraines

Treat Your Chronic Migraines with Botox Injections

Suffering from migraines can feel like an endless battle. Roughly 12% of Americans experience chronic migraines. While every person’s experience differs, Botox for migraines is a potential treatment that can help you return to your normal routines. Botox, the popular injection used to smooth and prevent wrinkles, is actually a viable preventative treatment for migraines. The US Food and Drug Administration approved OnabotulinumtoxinA (also known as Botox) in 2010 as a clinical treatment for adults who have migraines at least 15 days per month that last longer than four hours.

When determining if Botox for migraines is right for you, you need to take a variety of factors into consideration. Do you have a previous medical history of headaches and migraine headaches, including tension-types, for at least 15 days a month? During that period, are at least eight of your headaches migraines? Dr. Carter and the experts at Medical Cosmetics can collaborate with with your doctor to determine if Botox for migraines is the ideal treatment option for you. Our skillful staff will assess your symptoms and answer any questions you may have. We’re here to help you regain control over your life. Through Botox, you get to live life on your terms, not your migraines’ schedule. Contact us today for a consultation.

How Does Botox For Migraines Work?

Botox works by blocking neurotransmitters; these neurotransmitters typically send signals to the brain allowing a muscle to contract. When they are blocked, the nerve endings that cause pain are unable to reach your brain, which wards off migraines. Typically, injections last for about three months.

We know that migraine treatments are most effective when they are administered at the start of a headache. Unfortunately, that’s often hard to do. Botox can serve as a preventative, not only alleviating symptoms, but also helping you avoid overuse of oral medications and the common “rebound” migraine attacks.
