Most people know BOTOX® as a treatment that helps patients get rid of dynamic wrinkles. And it does a fantastic job in the cosmetic world. However, it is also great for helping those who are dealing with medical problems like migraines. We invite you to learn more information about how BOTOX® treatments can help you manage your migraines here in the Chicago area.
How BOTOX® Treatments Can Help
BOTOX® treatments can likely help you address your migraines if you have a history of these types of headaches and if you have them often.
BOTOX® is a neuromodulator that relaxes the muscles in the areas in which it is injected. While it may not completely get rid of migraines, BOTOX® can definitely improve them to the point that they don’t interfere with your life. In studies that have been done, patients who used BOTOX® for migraines reported having more pain-free days each month than they did before undergoing treatment.
Who is a Good Candidate?
The best way for you to find out if you are a good candidate for BOTOX® treatments for migraines is to contact us here in our Chicago office. When you come in for a consultation, you will meet with our specialist. We will ask you questions about your health and your experience with migraine headaches, which will help us determine if BOTOX® is the right course of action for you.
If it is determined that BOTOX® is the right option for your migraines, a treatment session will be set up. You are likely to receive several injections in your head and neck. These injections will be given roughly every three months in order to weaken your migraine headaches. Of course, we will do everything we can to make you feel as comfortable as possible during your treatment.
Results from BOTOX® treatments tend to get better over time. Your migraine headaches may not disappear immediately after your first treatment. However, if you stick with the treatment plan and keep your muscles relaxed for a long period of time, you will notice a dramatic improvement in the occurrence and severity of your migraines.
Migraine headaches can completely stop you in your tracks. If you have been dealing with them for a long time, you may have tried other treatments.
