Botox for Migraines

If you are of the 12% of Americans that suffer from migraine headaches, I have good news for you! Botox helps in relieving migraine headaches by blocking chemicals called neurotransmitters that carry pain signals to the brain. It does so by entering the nerve endings and blocking the release of chemicals before they get to the nerve endings in your head and neck. This prevents the activation of pain networks in the brain.  

Botox is a neuromodulator that is commonly used to treat fine lines and wrinkles. Clients receiving this treatment for migraine relief report that they notice their migraine headaches reduced in intensity and frequency.  Recommended treatment involves multiple injections around the pain fibers in your head and neck every 12 weeks to dull or prevent future migraine headaches.

“I look to the second and third treatments to maximize effects,” says Dr. Andrew Blumenfeld. “Patients see increasing benefits with an increase in the number of treatment cycles. One treatment lasts for 10-12 weeks, and patients reported that two Botox treatments reduced the number of headache days by approximately 50%” (”Botox for Migraine. (n.d.).
