Botox Migraine

  • Doctors in the USA found when Botox injections were given in the forehead for cosmetic purposes migraine suffering clients reported that their migraines had considerably lessened.
  • Botox migraine treatment invovles the injection of minute amounts of Botox muscle relaxent across the forehead and the temples. The anti-migraine effect usually lasts for around 12 weeks.
  • Professor David Dodick`s final summary in the study was that the worse the headache, the more frequent the attacks, the more medicine people have to take to combat the pain, the better Botox seems to work for them. So those who suffer from chronic migraines may be the ones to try the Botox migraine treatment.
