More than likely, you’ve heard about all of the great benefits of Botox injectables for cosmetic issues such as fine lines, creasing, and wrinkles. But did you know that it is also effective for managing the symptoms of frequent headaches and some migraines?
Relieve Headaches and Migraines
Botox is a natural muscle relaxant. When injected with tiny pinprick precision into the muscles around your temples, forehead, jaws, and TMJ, you can reduce tension in those areas.
Tension induced headaches are often the result of stress and repetitive muscle contractions. By applying Botox in the areas that contract the most, the muscles can be eased even if the external stressors in your life aren’t.
How Long Will My Results Last?
If Botox is effective for your particular type of headaches or migraines, it’s expected that you’ll see relief for about 3-6 months after each treatment. In some cases, Botox is combined with other types of injectables to extend the results. If you find that the headaches are starting to come back, all you have to do is schedule a quick follow up at The Aesthetic Institute for a reapplication!
