Do I Have Chronic Migraines?

Migraines are defined as headaches that typically come with a pulsing or throbbing sensation that limits itself to one side of the head. They can be extremely painful, cause sensitivity to light or sound, and generally interfere with your ability to live your life to the fullest.

Some of the most common symptoms of migraine headaches include the following:

  • Extreme pain
  • Throbbing or pulsing
  • Pain on one side of the head
  • Nausea or vomiting
  • Sensitivity to light or sound
  • Attacks lasting for a few hours or entire days
  • Pain that interferes with normal activities or daily life

How Can BOTOX Injections Help?

BOTOX is a type of injectable treatment known as a neuromodulator. This means that it works by interacting with your body’s ability to transmit nerve signals. When used for cosmetic purposes, neuromodulators help to block the nerve signals that cause specific facial muscles to move, which leads to the formation of fine lines and wrinkles. This same mechanism of action can help to relieve the pain associated with chronic migraines.

If traditional solutions to chronic migraines have failed you, BOTOX injections can help by addressing the problem on a much deeper level. BOTOX injections essentially work to block the specific neurotransmitters that are responsible for carrying pain signals from your brain to other parts of your body. By keeping these pain signals from reaching the nerve endings located near your head and neck, BOTOX injections can help to significantly soothe migraine pain.

What’s the Treatment Like?

BOTOX injections are as quick and easy as they are effective. They’re performed with a very fine-gauge needle, which helps to keep the treatment process as tolerable as possible. Once your practitioner has learned about the specifics of your case, they’ll work to craft an injection pattern that is ideal for you and your needs. 

The injections only take about 15 to 30 minutes to administer, and your only recovery will involve some minor tenderness and slight redness at the injection site. Some patients require multiple treatment sessions to enjoy their full results, and your practitioner will help you understand your ideal treatment schedule during your consultation.
