When patients where having Botox injections to reduce their wrinkles they began to notice a number of surprising, beneficial side effects. One of the most noticeable was migraine and chronic headache sufferers noticing a reduction in their suffering. Further studies looking into this effect identified a specific treatment protocol which reduced or eliminated migraines and headaches in up to 70% of sufferers. Treatment is available here in Newcastle and across our North East clinics.
Using the same botulinum injections as used in our anti-wrinkle treatments, following a specific treatment protocol we can reduce the migraine intensity/duration/frequency for the majority of patients. A series of injections across the forehead and into the muscles at the sides and back of the head has been show to affect huge change and bring relief for many patients. The treatment takes around half an hour with results beginning around a week later and lasting up to 6 months. Repeated treatments can be even more effective.
