Botox has another use than smoothing out wrinkles on the face- it has been approved by the FDA to treat chronic headaches in adults. Dr. Landsman treats many patients who suffer from migraines in Long Island and are thrilled with their results.
How Botox is Used to Treat Migraines
There are multiple Botox injections given over a 12 week period to subside the painful effects of a migraine. The injections are located around the head and neck area.
Do You Suffer From Migraines?
Allergan Inc, the maker of Botox, says in a statement that the FDA’s approval applies to people with chronic migraines, which is defined as a “distinct and severe neurological disorder characterized by patients who have a history of migraines and suffer from headaches on 15 or more days per month with headaches lasting four hours a day or longer.”
Does it Work?
Studies published in the March 2010 issue of Cephalagia, report that “patients treated with Botox experienced a major decrease in the frequency of headache days”.
