Do you have a history of migraine or frequent tension headaches? You may find that Onabotulinumtoxin A, or Botox, may significantly reduce the number of days you suffer from migraines, ease the intensity of the symptoms or prevent them from happening for a period of time.
Shots of Botox have long been used to smooth wrinkles by relaxing muscles in the face. Patients who use Botox to treat their wrinkles frequently report that their migraines get better as a result – hence Botox is now widely prescribed as a migraine treatment.
Botox can effectively act as a roadblock in the path of neurotransmitters that carry pain signals from your brain. It stops the chemicals before they get to the nerve endings around your head and neck.
Our doctors have extensive experience in diagnosing, treating and helping prevent migraines – a detailed consultation will determine whether Botox or other medication is right for you.Book Now
