How does Botox prevent migraines?

Botox is finally being recognized as a medical treatment for migraines.

For the past 25 years, doctors have successfully used Botox to treat patients who suffer from migraine headaches.  The FDA has finally recognized this medical treatment by approving the use of Botox for migraine patients.

Migraines are caused by the squeezing of blood vessels in the head. Botox works by paralyzing the muscles that the blood vessels go through so they can no longer contract or spasm. Patients who get Botox treatments at the trigger points see an improvement in their migraines.

To find out if you are a good candidate for Botox or other skin care treatments speak to your medical team.
