Migraines; they’re terribly painful and the worst thing you can have. You can experience everything from nausea to sensitivity to light. But thankfully, there is now a solution to prolonged migraine pain!
That’s right. Botox can treat migraines, reducing symptoms and making you feel better.
How does it work? We explain everything you need to know about this process.
How is Botox used to treat migraines?
Botox works by blocking certain chemical signals from your nerves, causing temporary paralysis of your muscles. Therefore, it temporarily paralyses the muscles causing the migraines.
The professional will inject multiple doses of botox into the specific areas of your head where the migraines occur, or where they originate from. This can include the bridge of your nose, temples, forehead, back of head and your neck. Botox treatments can help reduce symptoms of migraine headaches, including nausea, vomiting, and sensitivity to lights, sounds, and smells The number of doses depends on what you need to manage the migraines.
However, you will not feel instant relief; it might take between 10 to 14 days for you to experience relief with your migraines.
Roughly, you will get administered botox once every three months. Each session takes between 10 to 15 mins depending on the number of doses.
What are the risks?
You might experience some form of side-effect when it comes to receiving botox in Calgary. Apart from the small sting with each injection (which is considered very normal with all injections), the most common side-effect will be stiffness and muscle weakness at the injection site. There is nothing to be worried about if this occurs, as they usually resolve on their own within a few days.
However, if you experience these symptoms in other areas apart from the injection site, it is best to speak to your botox professional in Calgary for help.
