Botox For Migraines in Toronto

Botox is known for its role in the skincare industry; however, it is now increasingly being used as a Migraine relieving method as well.

In a survey, 92% of patients who have used BOTOX® wish they talked to their doctor and started treatment sooner.

BOTOX® is the most studied preventive treatment approved for Chronic Migraine and is a first-choice option.

 

How Effective Is Botox For Migraines?

Botox Treatments are found to be very effective for migraines. Individuals who opt for this procedure do not only see an improvement in the frequency of their headaches, but it also improves the severity. 

Studies conducted to evaluate the effectiveness of Botox for migraines have shown a success rate of 75% after the participants undergo three sessions of Botox. The studies have also found Botox for migraines to be safe and well tolerated by the majority of individuals.

How Does Botox For Migraines Work?

Botox, also known as Botox A or botulinum toxin A, is essentially a neurotoxin protein produced by certain bacteria. It works by blocking certain chemical messengers in the body, which also leads to the disruption of signals. 

The chemical signals that Botox blocks include the ones responsible for muscle contraction in the body. 

An example of such a chemical messenger or neurotransmitter is Acetylcholine. Botox injections prevent muscles from contracting at the injected site by blocking the release of Acetylcholine in the body. 

The resulting relation of muscles is believed to be the reason for the relief from headaches and migraines after administering Botox injections.

What Type of Migraines Respond Best To Botox?

The headaches that are found to respond best to Botox treatment are chronic forms of migraines. This means Botox may be most effective for an individual who experiences at least 15 days or greater of migraines in one month lasting 4 hours or longer. 

In addition, experts believe that the more frequent the headaches experienced by the patient, the more effective the results of Botox injections will be. 

Hence, an individual with less than 15 days of migraines in a month or those who rarely encounter it may not benefit as much as someone who experiences it regularly.

Am I A Good Candidate for Botox For Migraines Injections?

Patients are believed to be good candidates for Botox injections if:

  • They encounter more than 15 episodes of migraines in a month
  • Have a chronic form of migraine
  • Have tried at least three migraine preventative treatments previously without seeing any positive signs

Enhance, renew, and restore your natural beauty.

What Should I Do Before Getting Botox For Migraines?

During the initial consultation with the doctor, before getting Botox injections, you may be advised to stop taking certain medications that may interfere with the effectiveness of the procedure. You may also be asked about any previous Botox injections you have received and if they have been within the past four months.

What Is Botox For Migraine Treatment Like?

BOTOX® is a locally administered procedure that takes about 10 minutes once every 3 months and the injections may feel like tiny pinches.

The Botox treatment for migraines lasts for a total of 10 to 15 minutes. Before the procedure is started, a nurse or a healthcare professional will first start by looking at your health records and migraine history. 

The doctor will then discuss the pattern of your headaches with you and explain the details of the procedure so you are prepared for what to come next. 

Once you are taken to the room where the procedure is to be conducted, you may see several injections filled with Botox laid out in front of you. The doctor will first start by applying a numbing cream to the areas where the botox injections are to be administered. 

One Botox dose divided into 31 proven injection sites across 7 specific head and neck muscle areas that may be associated with migraine.

How Many Times Does It Take For Botox To Work For Migraines?

According to the data collected from the majority of the patients who undergo Botox treatment for migraines, it may take multiple treatments to experience complete relief from migraines.

One Botox dose divided into 31 proven injection sites across 7 specific head and neck muscle areas that may be associated with migraine.

Retreatment recommended once every 12 weeks.

What Can I Expect After Receiving Botox For Migraines?

The individual is not required to be admitted to the hospital for Botox treatment and may return to their home after a brief observation period. While you may drive on your own, some individuals prefer to bring a family member or a friend with them to accompany them back home, mainly if it is their first session.

During the 24 hours following the Botox procedure, the doctor advises patients not to undergo any extensive exercise, carry out hair washing and skin cleansing or massage the points where the injection was administered.

The patients are also advised not to conduct outdoor activities under direct sunlight or be in an environment with excessive heat and moisture, like saunas.

You may also be invited for a second session after three months.

How Long Does Botox Last For Migraines?

The results of Botox injections usually last much longer than any preventative medication, which is why the majority of individuals opt for it. The effectiveness of Botox for migraines usually lasts for three months. During these three months, the majority of individuals report a very low frequency and intensity of migraines. After this, the individual is recommended to get a second session of the Botox injections.

Where Is Botox Injected For Migraines?

When Botox injections are being used for the treatment of migraines, they are localized to the muscles whose contraction is responsible for causing the Migraine in the first place. For the majority of patients, there are seven points where the Botox injection is administered. These include the forehead, the temples, the bridge of the nose, and the backside of the head, neck and right above the shoulder blades.
