What are Migraines?

Migraines are severe headaches that can cause throbbing pain or pulsing, usually on one side of the head. They may be accompanied by nausea, vomiting, and sensitivity to light and sound. Some individuals with migraines may also experience aura, which is a group of sensory, motor, and speech symptoms that occur before the migraine pain begins. These symptoms may include blind spots in your vision, numb or tingling skin, seeing bright flashes, speech changes, and more.

Many people with migraines experience them 2-4 times a month, and some more often. This can greatly impact their ability to live normal, fulfilling lives. Thankfully, Botox injections are a great treatment option for decreasing the number of headache days a month.

The Migraine Treatment Process

Botulinum toxin injectables such as Botox have been shown to relieve migraine pain. It works by interrupting pain transmission pathways between the brain and nerves that extend from the spinal cord.

During treatment, Botox will be injected into the small muscles under the skin on various face, head, and neck areas. Treatment is quick, taking only about 10 minutes to complete.


There is no downtime required following Botox treatment for migraines, so patients can return to their regular activities as soon as they wish. For full benefits, it is recommended that patients receive 2 treatments, 12 weeks apart. Results usually last for 10-12 weeks at a time. Most people will require just four Botox treatments for migraines a year.
