You have probably heard about Botox as one of the most popular cosmetic treatments in the United States today. But did you know that it is also gaining recognition as a powerful treatment for chronic headaches? It’s true!
Botox for Migraines is the Next Step Forward in Migraine Treatment
Botox first gained popularity for its ability to reduce wrinkles. However, the same mechanism that helps you look younger can also curb migraine symptoms.
Botox treatments involve a direct injection of the treatment into the head. You can treat many locations at the same time, but it usually takes only a few minutes. Discomfort is minimal, and you can get back to your normal daily routine right away.
How does Botox for headaches actually work? It’s very simple.
Botox functions by reducing the movement of muscles in the face. The muscles of our Miami patients remain healthy, but are partially paralyzed. Depending on the location and the amount used, Botox can continue producing these results for up to 3 months at a time.
Researchers have discovered that some migraines are significantly contributed to by spasms of these head muscles. It is possible for some migraine patients to achieve immediate, dramatic relief from their condition for up to 3 months with just a single Botox treatment.
Patients can continue enjoying effects through occasional “top up” treatments.
It is fast, easy and long-lasting, making it a great option for most patients.
