BOTOX® FOR MIGRAINES
If you suffer from migraines, you will do anything to make the pain go away. Those who suffer repeated migraines in any given month are said to have chronic migraines. About 12 percent of the American public suffer with chronic migraines with debilitating pain. Botox, was originally approved by the FDA to smooth wrinkles on the face. Today, Botox is approved for reducing chronic migraines in adults as well. For people living in Las Vegas, Revenge MD, can certainly reduce the severity and frequency of migraine headaches.
HOW DOES BOTOX FOR MIGRAINES WORK?
The science behind Revenge MD’s Botox injections for headaches is much the same as it is for facial wrinkles – muscle paralysis. In layman’s terms, the toxin essentially blocks the transmission of signal from the nerve cells to the muscles, thereby causing muscle fiber paralysis. According to the FDA, multiple injections are given in specific areas around the head and neck. The result is a lessening and decrease in future headache symptoms. The results last up to 12 weeks, depending on the person. Chronic migraine sufferers, defined as someone who experiences debilitating headaches at least 15 days a month, with symptoms lasting for four hours or more per event, must seek repeat injections every three months to keep seeing relief from their symptoms.
HOW LONG UNTIL I FEEL THE RELIEF?
Patients receiving Botox injections at Revenge MD usually begin feeling relief from their migraine symptoms in four to six days after treatment.
