Botox: Your Possible Migraine Solution
Often times people associate the idea of Botox entirely to cosmetics, but many haven’t heard about how successful it may be to ending chronic migraines. This FDA- approved treatment has been proven to treat and prevent this life altering disease. For several years now people have turned to Botox for help. Notably, people are seeing a significant decrease in numbers of painful episodes each month. It is recommended that patients receive ongoing treatments once every three months in order to maintain a prolonged benefit. The procedure itself is quick and usually only takes 15-30 minutes each session. You do not need to do anything to prepare and there are little to no side effects, so it is okay for you to drive home right after!
Migraines can create a burden on your daily life, especially during work and just trying to enjoy time with your family and friends. Incorporating routine sleep patterns, healthy foods, and exercise habits into your daily life is the first step to eliminating this continued pain. However, more often than not, even a healthy life transformation doesn’t conquer the war against the endless agony our patients are faced with. Although many seek ibuprofen medications as a solution, they hardly tend to work and puts people at risk of medication overuse which can contribute to worsening symptoms.
Botox may be your weapon to defeat your symptoms and avoid harmful health issues medication may cause. It is important to note that patients do not experience instant effects or results immediately after the treatment. The outcome may take a while, and patients generally begin to notice relief during their second or third procedure. Though it may take some time, patients of ours have expressed to us that it is well worth the wait.
