Botox® for Migraines
Botox® is a highly-popular non-surgical procedure that is sweeping the nation. Botox® is administered via injection by a licensed doctor, and can serve to treat wrinkles, frown lines, migraines, cervical dystonia, blepharospasm (eye twitching), and hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating). Botox® is derived from Clostridium botulinum, which produces a substance that serves as the active ingredient and helps reduce the muscle activity that causes muscle strain and frown lines. Botox® is used for cosmetic procedures as well as non-cosmetic procedures, such as excessive sweating, cervical dystonia, and blepharospasm.
In September of 2008, Allergan™, the company that produces Botox®, conducted trials to see if Botox® injections could alleviate the symptoms of migraines. The results were astonishing. Chronic migraine sufferers experienced fewer days of migraines with injections of Botox® in the forehead and nearby areas.
As migraines can often be triggered by head and neck pain, it follows that Botox® may be able to help treat migraines, as Botox® is already a well-known treatment for cervical dystonia, a condition associated with abnormal head position and neck pain.
If you suffer from migraines, tell Dr. Hakimian about the pain you are experiencing and your medical history. Botox® injections may be right for you and all it takes is a single ten-minute trip to Laser Touch Medical Clinic, where a few tiny injections of Botox® can help you experience some relief from migraine headaches for several months.
