People have been using BOTOX® for years now in order to treat their facial wrinkles. They have enjoyed fantastic results and love the way they look when using the product. However, BOTOX® is not only used for cosmetic treatments. It is also used for medical treatments.
One of the primary ways that individuals are benefiting from BOTOX® when used for medical purposes is migraine prevention. Unfortunately, migraine sufferers have an extremely difficult time dealing with their severe headaches. When a person deals with chronic migraines, they are not experiencing a severe headache once a month. They experience them often. These chronic migraines have completely changed their life. When they have a migraine, they are not able to carry on with normal life. Their personal relationships, their professional relationships and every other aspect of their life is affected.
BOTOX® has been able to help many individuals prevent their migraines. When this treatment is used for migraines, injections may be made in the face, head and neck, depending on the situation. The idea is to relax the muscles in these areas. This has proved extremely helpful in dulling the headache symptoms that a person experiences.
So, you may be wondering if this is safe. Thankfully, many studies have been done on the use of BOTOX® for migraine prevention and treatment. It has been approved by the FDA. The approval they gave was based on a study where over 1,000 participants from Europe and North America were involved. Individuals who used BOTOX® in this study to treat migraine headaches experienced a major decrease in the amount of migraines they had.
An interesting side note is that many individuals who had started to use BOTOX® for migraines have noticed cosmetic benefits. This is especially the case when the solution is injected into the facial and neck muscles. Even though they went in for treatment for migraine prevention, they had the benefit of experiencing a much more youthful and relaxed appearance.
