Botox is an injected medication that is used to reduce or prevent severe headaches and migraines. Pain and muscle contractions are blocked by preventing nerve signals from reaching the brain. Botox is used for both chronic and acute headaches, and when administered correctly, it can provide relief from pain and other symptoms associated with headaches and migraines.
Botox is generally safe for most people, and it can be used to treat both adults and children. Treatment typically takes around 15-20 minutes, and results can be seen within a few days. Typically, results from Botox last for three to four months, which will vary, depending on individual responses.
Benefits of Botox for Headaches and Migraines:
Yes, Botox is FDA approved for the treatment of chronic migraines and has been proven safe when administered by a qualified professional.
Botox for headaches is typically administered via a series of injections that are given into the head, neck, and shoulder muscles. The injections are typically spaced out over a period of several weeks, with the number of injections depending on the severity of the headache. Timeless Medical Spa offers injections that usually take about 15 minutes to complete.
The number of treatments varies based on individual needs, but most patients require ongoing treatments every 3-4 months for continued relief.
When administered correctly for headache treatment, Botox should not significantly alter your facial appearance or limit your ability to make facial expressions.
