A pain management doctor can design a BOTOX® for migraines or BOTOX® for headaches treatment plan specifically designed for your symptoms. Once you begin the BOTOX® for migraines in Jacksonville, NC, treatment process, you’ll experience significantly fewer headaches and enjoy living headache-free.

How BOTOX® for Migraines Works

BOTOX® contains an active ingredient called botulinum toxin type A. This injectable is most commonly used to treat expression lines that form on the upper half of the face and help patients achieve anti-aging results by relaxing facial muscles to eliminate wrinkles. However, this injectable also provides an effective solution for those suffering from chronic migraine pain and chronic headaches. The purified protein in the product works on the muscular level to reduce the total number of muscle contractions that can contribute to migraines or headaches while also blocking pain signals from the brain to the neurotransmitters. As a result, you’ll experience less pain and live headache free.

What To Expect From Your BOTOX® for Headaches Treatment

Patients who qualify for this treatment will undergo the injection process once every 12 weeks. Injections typically take 15 to 30 minutes to complete. If necessary, we can apply a topical numbing solution to your skin to enhance your comfort. Then, our experts will administer Botox to different head and neck muscles. It typically takes approximately three months for the body to metabolize the product, so to maintain a headache-free lifestyle long-term, it’s important that you schedule regular follow-up treatment to maintain your results.
