We have been using Botox for the treatment of migraines for about 4 years. Recently our use has been increasing. Patients have been finding this a rather convenient way of managing their migraines. They come in and get Botox injections performed and usually they are headache free for 3-6 months. We have just completed our review of patients treated at BC LASER AND SKINCARE and have found that over a period of time the need for injections begins to reduce from twice a year to once a year. We have also noticed that whilst they are receiving their Botox injections their need for migraine medication reduces significantly from none used to minimal.
We have been using Botox for tension headaches and Temporo-mandibular joint (TMJ) pains for the last two years and have been getting good results. Some patients find that their extended health plans will cover the injection costs.
