How the treatment works
In order to achieve the best results, you will be given two initial Botox Chronic Migraine treatments 12 weeks apart. After the first 24 weeks, your doctor will assess the efficacy of the treatment and if you’re satisfied with the results, will recommend that you undergo repeat Botox treatments roughly every 12 weeks in order to maintain the results.
Botox, as you may already know, is administered by injection. The whole procedure usually takes just 15 minutes and can be performed in your physicians office. The Botox is injected in seven different areas throughout the head and neck area, but the injections are only very shallow and administered with a very slim needle.
In total, each Chronic Migraine treatment involves a total of 31 injections – this may seem like a large amount, but since they are so shallow they can be performed very quickly and without too much discomfort. Most patients would not describe the procedure as painful by any means, and they do not need to take any time out to recover once the Chronic Migraine treatment is over.
