Do you suffer from migraine headaches? Migraine headaches can be debilitating and some people have more headache days than non-headache days. Migraines typically start as a dull ache and progress to a throbbing pain. You may have sensitivity to light or sound with this headache. Some people even get nausea/vomiting with this headache. The headache typically lasts between 4-72 hours and interferes with daily activities.
If you suffer from migraine headache at least 15 days of the month that last at least 4 hours per day, you may be a candidate for treatment with Botox. Yes, I said Botox. Botox is FDA-approved for the treatment of chronic migraine. If you have tried multiple medications that have failed you are likely frustrated with the lack of pain relief. In fact, sometimes taking too much medication can actually worsen your headaches!
Botox is a simple injection technique for the treatment of chronic migraines. It involves injecting the medication into specific sites in the face, head and neck. It relaxes the muscles and relieves the headaches. In patients with 15 headaches per month or more, Botox reduced the headache days by 9 or more.
The best part… Your wrinkles will disappear too! Seriously. Many of the injection sites to treat migraine also happen to be the same sites that we inject when using Botox for cosmetic purposes.
If you have more headache days than non-headache days, consider calling for a Botox consultation today.
