Botox for Migraines

This innovative medication can be used to treat a wide range of health concerns, especially those connected to chronic migraines.

How does Botox treat migraines?

Not only is Botox for migraines FDA-approved for safe and effective head and neck pain relief, it also acts as a powerful preventative treatment against the agonizing effects of recurring migraines with just a few quick injections.

At its core, Botox is a potent muscle relaxer. That’s why Botox treatments have become a go-to option for eliminating signs of aging on the skin since it works to soothe muscle tension on the face and other areas of the body.

These properties have also made Botox injections an in-demand treatment for episodic migraines, allowing the muscles in the neck, shoulders, and face to any tension that may be causing a headache.

When undergoing Botox for chronic migraine treatment, your headache specialist may inject the medication into various points along the upperbody and head. On average, patients receiving Botox treatments begin to feel relief from their symptoms within one to two weeks.
