Detroit, Michigan – Botox has recently published this statement, “For adults with Chronic Migraine—15 or more headache days a month, each lasting 4 hours or more—BOTOX is the first and only FDA-approved, preventive treatment proven to reduce headache days every month. BOTOX prevents up to 9 headache days a month (vs up to 7 for placebo).”
BOTOX works as a preventative method to reduce headaches. It is suggested to have BOTOX therapy 4 times a year, every 3 months. Patients experience fewer headaches after two treatment sessions.
It is important for us at Michigan Facial Aesthetic Surgeons to understand the history of your headaches. If you don’t have a journal, it is important to begin a log of how you’re feeling. You should have the following questions under consideration:
How many days a month do you experience headaches?
Conversely, how many days are you headache free?
Are your headaches lasting four hours or more?
Do you experience nausea, vomiting, sensitivity to light or sound?
What else do you experience?
How do your headaches affect your daily life?
What kind of prescribed or over-the-counter medications are you using?
It is yet to be known whether BOTOX is an effective remedy for people with episodic migraines. So, if you 15 or more headaches a month, call us today to learn more how BOTOX works.
If you have Medicare, Medicaid or another insurance plan, the cost of BOTOX therapy can be covered. This will help you reduce the overall cost of the non-invasive procedure. Use our simple contact form to get in touch now.
