For constant sufferers of the severe headaches known as migraines, Botulinum toxin A injections are becoming well-known as a successful treatment.

The varied benefits of BOTOX® (Botulinum toxin A) through reported medical studies, and news articles are known by many of us today. Although BOTOX® is known as the top wrinkle treatment in the cosmetic industry, Botox injections are also recognized as valuable solutions for many problems from excessive sweating to voice therapy or migraine headache.

Botox injections for migraines were discovered accidentally during clinical testing for BOTOX® Cosmetic. When test patients who normally suffered from headaches reported fewer facial lines and fewer migraines, Botox began its progression from popular cosmetic treatment to medical remedy.

Botox® is injected into the forehead, and neck where patients are experiencing pain and tension. The botulinum toxin A is thought to eliminate migraines by reducing muscle tension and thus creating less strain on the nervous system. Not only can decreasing stress on the nervous system prevent migraines from developing, headaches that do occur are often less severe because Botox purportedly blocks pain receptors in nerve cells.

The amount of injections or the number of Botox sessions required for optimal results varies from patient to patient.
