BOTOX® Injections for Relief From Chronic Migraines

BOTOX® is a neuromodulator, a type of medication that can halt the signals between nerves and muscles. It is not fully understood how BOTOX® for migraines works, but it is believed that the BOTOX® injections block specific natural chemicals (neurotransmitters) carrying pain signals. The active ingredient in BOTOX® is a purified form of botulinum toxin, known for its smoothing effect when used cosmetically. While the treatment won’t resolve migraines forever, regular treatments have produced excellent results for people suffering from chronic migraines.

Are There Any Side Effects?

While the treatment rarely produces any side effects, some people experience minor neck pain after the treatment or a headache. 

The product takes a few days to affect the nerves and reduce the pain associated with chronic migraines. Follow all instructions after your injections, and avoid touching, rubbing, or massaging the injection sites.

What is the Treatment Like?

Using BOTOX for migraines in Southlake involves a series of tiny injections in the forehead, scalp, neck, and shoulders. The entire procedure takes about 20 minutes to complete. The BOTOX® is injected into specific points, in tiny quantities, with a very fine needle. If needed, the area to be treated can be numbed with a topical numbing cream to increase comfort and avoid the pinching sensation of the needle.

What is the Recovery Time?

There is no real recovery time after this treatment. You can return to your usual activities but must avoid rubbing the injection sites. You could experience some minor bruising and swelling at the injection sites.

How Long Before I Feel the Results?

The result of the injections will take a few days to appear. This treatment will need to be repeated about every three months. For many people who suffer from chronic migraines, BOTOX® injections have been life-changing.
