If you or a loved one are a migraine sufferer, you know the frustrating cycle that can take control of your life:
- Avoiding migraine "triggers"
- Missing out on activities that can aggravate your condition
- Deciding on pain-killers which are potentially addictive and have undesirable side-effects
- Resorting to medical narcotic injections
Now, migraine relief can last for three months or more at a time, with the administration of BOTOX®.
Administering BOTOX® for therapeutic applications, such as migraine treatment, requires advanced training, and special techniques are used to achieve optimal results. The optimal location, depth, and quantity of injections is determined for each individual patient. This way, the muscles that trigger your particular migraines are specifically targeted.
Often, after treatment with BOTOX®, the patient can expect at least 3 months migraine-free, without any need for additional migraine medications. However, the Doctors consensually prefer to use as little medication as possible, so we will ask you to return for reassessment one week post-treatment. If necessary, we can adjust the dose at your follow-up visit for best results.
Most extended medical plans provide majority coverage, when patients submit a letter from a recognized physician trained in this treatment.
Oral medications and supplements that may be effective in treating migraines and migraine symptoms are also available in our clinic or by medical prescription.
