Treating Headaches with BOTOX®
For the longest time, BOTOX® was only used to treat wrinkles and fine lines. Today, things are different, and BOTOX® has been approved to treat migraines as well. According to studies, about 12 percent of Americans suffer from debilitating migraines, which are severe headaches.
A migraine can cause intense throbbing and pulsing pain, and chronic migraines can cause major disruptions to a person’s life. If you endure the pain caused by frequent migraines, then you already know how difficult they can make your life.
BOTOX® for Migraines
Although it’s still one of the best treatments for wrinkles, BOTOX® can be used to treat chronic migraines. When given to patients at 12-week intervals, this injectable is capable of providing relief from the painful symptoms of migraines.
The solution is typically injected into several areas around the head, and it has been approved by the FDA for this purpose. If you suffer migraine headaches for more than 15 days per month, you could be a great candidate for this treatment.
The use of BOTOX® for migraines was actually discovered by accident. Many of the patients who were given BOTOX® for wrinkles reported significant relief from chronic migraines, so after several clinical trials, BOTOX® was approved for the treatment of migraines.
Scientists aren’t sure how BOTOX® provides relief, but they know that it works. It’s believed that certain muscle contractions can serve as triggers for migraines, and by relaxing these muscle contractions, BOTOX® is able to provide symptom relief. There is another theory that suggests BOTOX® is capable of disrupting the brain chemicals that are responsible for triggering migraine symptoms.
Benefits and What to Expect
Patients can expect symptom relief within two to three weeks. To achieve the maximum benefits, many patients require a series of treatment sessions. BOTOX® has been in use since 1989, so it has an excellent safety record.
BOTOX® is capable of preventing migraines before they start. There are acute treatments for migraines, but they’re designed to be used after the headache has started. Treatment with BOTOX® is different because it prevents migraines before they occur. To enjoy ongoing relief from chronic migraines, you’ll likely need injections every 12 weeks. On average, the treatment is capable of preventing up to nine headache days per month.
