Botox injections are approved for the treatment of chronic migraines, which means headaches on 15 or more days a month. Botox is injected around pain fibers that are involved in headaches in order to block the release of chemicals involved in pain transmission. Botox has been shown to reduce the number of headache days or the severity of headaches by 50%. When you receive a Botox treatment, the doctor will use a very small needle to inject a small amount of Botox into the muscles of the head and neck. You can expect to the appointment to take 10-15 minutes. Botox injections are typically repeated every 3 months as the effectiveness lasts for 10-12 weeks.
