Migraine sufferers finally have a preventative option approved by the FDA. Botox not only smoothes the skin and reduces the appearance of wrinkles, it now helps reduce migraine headaches. According to Russell Katz, MD, of the FDA, “Patients with chronic migraines that last 14 days or more struggle with work, family and social life due to being debilitated during the migraine episode.”
As a migraine sufferer, you are well aware of the interference your migraine episodes cause in your daily life. It takes time away from work, socializing, traveling and performing normal duties such as grocery shopping. Suffering from a migraine on a regular basis can lead to depression and anxiety. If you are a migraine sufferer chances are you are interested in how Botox can help you.
The FDA’s approval of Botox as a form of treatment for migraines has patients excited and eager to try the treatment. The FDA is clear to state that Botox is beneficial for chronic migraine sufferers.
Using Botox to treat migraines involves multiple injections given to patients over a 12-week span of time. The injections are usually placed around the neck and head. These areas are known to dull headache symptoms.
If you are not sure you suffer from migraines, the FDA clarifies the situation by explaining that migraines are a severe and distinct neurological disorder.
Once the treatment is complete it will total about 30 Botox injections in the head and neck area that will last up to three months. Treatment varies depending on individual patients.
If you are a migraine sufferer that is looking forward to finally getting rid of your headache, it is time to inquire about Botox injections. First, consult with your general physician that treats your headaches and discuss the benefits and opportunity. Your doctor will advise you if this is something that will benefit your specific condition or not.
Once you get approval, make an appointment with a dermatologist office for a consultation. Schedule your procedure as quickly as possible to begin feeling the benefits of Botox.
Keep in mind that Botox injections also create a smooth complexion and healthy-looking skin near the injection sites. This is an added benefit that you can enjoy as well as prevent migraines. Always discuss the injection sites with your dermatologist before the procedure begins so you have a full understanding of the outcome.
