Botox is the first and only FDA-approved preventive treatment for chronic migraines. Unlike acute treatments designed to treat pain once it’s already happening, Botox can prevent headaches and migraines before they even start.
How can Botox provide pain relief? It’s fairly simple. Botox is designed to attach to the nerve endings and block the nerve transmission to the motor muscles of the face, preventing the small muscle contractions beneath the skin that cause dynamic wrinkles.
Not only do these muscle contractions cause fine lines and wrinkles, they can also cause or exacerbate facial pain, TMJ symptoms, headaches, and migraines. By preventing these muscle contractions and relaxing the facial muscles, our patients can finally find the pain-relief they deserve.
