Botox for Migraine

If you experience headaches that last 4 hours or more, occurring on at least 15 days of the month, you may suffer from chronic migraines. BOTOX® can be used to prevent headaches for migraine sufferers and has been shown to reduce the number of headache days per month.

Get The Facts

BOTOX® can be injected into several targeted head and neck muscles that may contribute to headaches. BOTOX® prevents migraine attacks before they even start, and can reduce up to 9 migraine days a month. It is thought that BOTOX® blocks the pain signals that migraines cause.
