BOTOX FOR MIGRAINES
Migraines can be extremely painful and negatively affect not only the lives of patients but also those around them. Serious migraines can cause debilitating pain, sensitivity to light and sound, blurry vision, nausea, vomiting, lightheadedness and even fainting. Botox Therapeutic has proven to be a highly effective treatment for reducing the severity of tension headaches and migraines. Some patients have even had their migraines completely eradicated.
WHAT IS IT?
Migraine treatment consists of a purified protein neuromodulator injections into the muscle groups surrounding the head and neck. Relaxing the muscles in these areas can reduce tension, as well reduce the pain signals sent to the brain.
Appointments are 20 to 30 minutes depending on the areas being treated
There is no recovery time for Botox injections and patients may return to normal activities after a few hours.
