BOTOX treatment involves careful injection of dilute BOTOX into areas of the forehead and back of the head/neck. This causes some chemical denervation that temporarily alleviates over-contraction of some muscles, and it works by blocking nerves that carry pain messages to the brain.
BOTOX for tension headache, cluster headache and chronic migraine can help prevent the recurrence of headache in some patients. It is especially effective in alleviating the recurrence of chronic migraine. At Diamond Headache Clinic, BOTOX is one of the many prescription medications in our preventive treatment arsenal. If you are over 18 years old and suffer from chronic migraine, and you have 15 or more headache days each month with a headache lasting four or more hours per day, then you may be a candidate for BOTOX injections. Your physician will assess your complete medical history, including any other health conditions and all drugs you are taking, before administering BOTOX.
