A migraine is a type of headache that may begin as a dull ache and then turn into a constant, throbbing pain which is often felt on one side of the head. When you have a migraine, you may be sensitive to light and sound and experience nausea and/or vomiting.
A migraine headache can last between four to seventy two hours and may get worse or cause you to avoid routine physical activities, such as driving, walking or climbing stairs. Chronic Migraine is a neurological condition that causes patients to have fifteen or more headaches per month, each headache lasting four hours or more, and at least half of the headaches suffered are considered to be migraines. .
Botulinum (Botox) treatment at the DentalSPA Dental and Medical Center is a preventive treatment approved by the FDA for adults with Chronic Migraine. Not knowing when a headache or migraine will strike can be challenging. While other treatments may help you once you already have a headache, preventive treatment with Botulinum (Botox) therapy helps prevent headaches. Botulinum (Botox) treatment is injected every twelve weeks by one of our Dermatologist.
