BOTOX® for Migraines

BOTOX Injection

Most people are surprised to learn that BOTOX® does more than just smooth out forehead wrinkles. It can also erase a migraine headache just as effectively.

BOTOX® has been approved for migraine relief for more than a decade and works by reducing muscle contractions and stopping neurotransmitters from sending pain signals to your brain. This helps to reduce the pain caused by migraines and allows patients to enjoy a headache-free lifestyle.

Most patients receive an injection approximately once every 12 weeks.

BOTOX® treatment may be for you if:

  • You experience migraines for more than 15 days a month with at least 8 days involving headaches that last 4 or more hours.
  • You experience the above migraines for at least 3 months.
  • You are at least 18 years old.

BOTOX® treatments take only 15 to 30 minutes to perform. During your appointment, your doctor may numb your skin with a topical anesthetic before administering injections to your head and neck areas.

BOTOX® is safe, effective, FDA-approved, and you can drive yourself home immediately following your treatment
