Botox For Chronic Migraine

 

At Smile Hub Dental Clinic, we can offer relief from migraines with anti-wrinkle Botox therapy. A migraine is a pulsing headache that is usually restricted to one side of the head. Chronic migraine is one of the most debilitating forms of headaches and can affect a person’s work and personal life. Botox injections around the head can reduce the symptoms of future headaches for up to 4 months at a time.

Botox Therapy For Chronic Migraine

 

Here at Smile Hub Dental Clinic, our knowledge and understanding of how to alleviate pain and discomfort caused by migraines makes us a professional and comfortable option where you can rest assured knowing you are in safe hands. A major advantage of Botox therapy is that there is little to no recovery time and is completed with an outpatient procedure meaning that once the treatment has been administered, the patient is fine to leave the practice. Firstly, one of our expert dentists will have an in dept consultation with the patient to identify any individual trigger points that the patient may have. Small injections will be used on these areas to relax the muscles and block pain signals creating the migraine. The results can last up to 4 months and can be repeated again after this time.
