Our facial plastic surgeon in Atlanta can help chronic migraine sufferers get relief. When you come in for a consultation we can discuss if you’re a candidate to receive Botox injections for migraine management.
Botox has been approved by the FDA since 2010 as a method for treating chronic migraines. Having this condition means suffering from 15 headaches or more per month. Anyone experiencing fewer than this should seek other preventive options. The more headaches you have, the more beneficial Botox may be for you.
How Botox Can Help
Botox is administered via several small, shallow injections to the key muscles around the head and neck. They’re placed around the pain fibers where migraines arise, blocking the release of chemicals that are responsible for transmitting pain. Treatments are usually given over the course of 10 – 12 weeks and relief can be felt for up to three months. Most patients are able to discontinue their migraine medication after undergoing Botox treatments.
Other Important Facts
- Application times are quick and the pain is minimal.
- The most common side effect is a slight pain in the neck (no pun intended). Discomfort is temporary, and you get relief by applying a cold compress to the area.
- Getting insurance to pay for Botox treatments for migraines can be challenging.
