Migraine Treatment

Migraines Botox Treatment Kings Hill, Kent

Botox treatment is particularly effective in treating chronic migraine, which is defined as experiencing headaches on 15 or more days each month. We use Botox injections to treat migraine, injecting into muscles in the face, scalp and neck. Botox treatment can decrease the number of migraine attacks experienced. Botox injections are administered every 12 weeks and responses are normally observed within the first or second set of injections.

Whilst there is some uncertainly about the exact science of how this treatment works, it has been used by the NHS in the UK and is proven to be very effective in treating chronic or severe migraine.

Two large clinical trials have both shown that Botox injections are effective in reducing the frequency of migraine attacks and helped to improve quality of life on validated scales.

Studies have suggested that Botox treatment reduces migraine attacks because they limit the pain pathways involving the trigeminovascular system (a sensory pathway that is believed to play an important role in triggering headaches in a migraine attack).

For people suffering from chronic migraines Botox treatment can be a very effective way of improving quality of life, cognitive performance and reducing the number of migraine attacks.

Botox treatment is a simple procedure that can lead to dramatic improvements to the day-to-day lives of migraine sufferers.
