Chronic Migraine Symptoms
Patients diagnosed with chronic migraine headaches experience attacks on a regular basis at a rate of 15 or more times a month. Migraines are often caused by abnormal brain activity, hormonal changes and certain triggers, such as lack of sleep and stress. Severe migraines typically present with intense throbbing on one or both sides of the head, nausea, vomiting, dizziness and other symptoms. Bright lights, sounds and smells can intensify the pain.
BOTOX Treatment for Migraines
Chronic migraines can take a toll on both your professional and personal life. If you suffer from chronic migraine headaches, the FDA-approved BOTOX treatment may be able to help. Performed by a BOTOX specialist, such as the oculoplastic surgeons at Eye Plastic & Reconstructive Surgeons of CNY, each treatment takes about 15 minutes to complete and involves 31 injections in seven key areas of the head and neck.
For effective migraine treatment, BOTOX injections are typically given 12 weeks apart, or as recommended by your doctor. These injections are often able to prevent as many as eight or nine headaches and migraine days a month on average, allowing patients greater freedom to work and enjoy life without discomfort.
