Headaches and migraines can be quite debilitating. Some patients have found that the application of ‘anti-wrinkle’ injections can actually assist with relieving headaches and the like. The procedure injects the product into muscles near the eye area, nose, forehead, temple and even the neck.
The injections are given approximately every 3 to 4 months to decrease the muscle action which may be involved to trigger the migraine or headaches. The exact reason why this can help is not clear.
Some forms or causes of headaches may not show improvement with this treatment.
All procedures carry risks. Before proceeding, you should seek a second opinion from an appropriately qualified practitioner.
