BOTOX for Migraines in Rochester, NY

What is BOTOX?

Botox injections are shots that use a toxin to prevent a muscle from moving for a limited time. Botox is commonly used to smooth fine lines and wrinkles, but many have found it effective in relieving migraine headaches. As you reduce muscle contractions with BOTOX, the pain fibers can be relaxed and you can experience relief.

At Boev Clinic, our team of highly skilled and trained providers offers BOTOX treatments for migraine management. With a commitment to utilizing the latest techniques, we guarantee the highest quality of care. If you’re looking for effective treatment for migraines schedule an appointment by calling (585) 342-2638.

How Can BOTOX Help with Migraines?

In 2010, Botox was approved for use with chronic migraine, and many patients are reporting success. It is considered chronic when you experience headaches 15 or more days a month.

Botox helps with migraines in the following ways:

  • Blocks nerve endings and prevent pain networks – Botox is injected around pain fibers and blocks the release of chemicals involved in pain transmission
  • Prevents migraine headaches before they start – Botox is a solution to make sure you avoid migraines before onset
  • Staying on treatment – Often the maximum effects will not occur until the second and third Botox  treatment, each treatment lasting for 10-12 weeks

Addresses trigger points –  Boev Clinic will find where the pain originates which may be the forehead, temples, or the back of your head and neck

Does BOTOX Really Work for Migraines?

According to the American Migraine Foundation, patients reported that two Botox treatments reduced the number of headache days by approximately 50 percent.

It is a simple procedure that takes less than 30 minutes. There is no downtime and you can get back to your daily activities immediately.

It is important to find a qualified provider with experience in treating migraines with BOTOX, such as Boev Clinic. The location of the injections, the amount administered, and the overall approach is critical to your outcome.
