A Treatment For Migraines & Wrinkles
The BOTOX® used to treat wrinkles is exactly the same as what is used to treat migraines. The main difference is you may receive a few more shots in the area where you are experiencing pain. The injections may be placed along wrinkle lines so you can experience both relief from headache pain as well as smooth out wrinkles.
What Is Treatment Like & How Long Does It Last?
BOTOX® injections can paralyze nerve terminals that transmit pain and produce pain substances. The injections can help stop the process of pain patterns as well as relax muscles.
The procedure can take up to two weeks to take effect, and it may take a 2nd or 3rd treatment for maximum effects. BOTOX®, like other fillers, is slowly metabolized into the system, so you will need to receive the treatment every 3 months or so to remain effective.
What To Expect From Your Appointment
The injections can be uncomfortable and require around 31 shots. However, the treatment is fairly quick, lasting only about 20 minutes. The most common side effect is some soreness around the neck which can be treated with an ice pack.
Most people find that some temporary discomfort during the procedure is worth months of relief from headache pain. According to the American Migraine Foundation, BOTOX® is said to decrease the number of days one experiences chronic migraines on average by 50%.
Will Insurance Cover My Treatment?
Because BOTOX® is FDA-approved for chronic migraines, your insurance company may cover your treatment. Some insurance companies do require that you’ve first explored other avenues of headache pain management first. It’s important to contact your insurance company to review your coverage.
