Botox injections work by blocking impulses to the muscle, resulting in a relaxed effect. It is a fast-acting procedure that has helped many patients suffering from headaches and migraines.
The location of the injection depends on the individual and whereabouts of the tension. Typically, we treat the frown and eye area as most tension comes from frowning and squinting.
Please Note this treatment is not suitable for you if your migraine stems from pain or tension in the scalp, neck or shoulders.
The Botox treatment for headaches is simple and relatively pain-free. The effects of Botox may take up to two weeks to be felt and typically last around 12 weeks.
Benefits of having this treatment:
Specifically for Migraines and Headaches, Botox will help to relax the muscles around where it has been injected. Where we inject really does depend on the individual and the whereabouts of the tension, however we typically treat the frown and eye area as most tension comes from frowning and squinting.
Typically it will take about 7 – 14 days before you start to see results, though this time may vary.
Results can last from 3-5 months and sometimes longer depending on the individual.
