Using Botox for Migraines? ⮕
Wrinkle relaxers are a prescription medicine for adults who suffer from Chronic Migraine – 15 or more headache days a month.
Wrinkle relaxers work for migraine prevention works by blocking the release of certain brain chemicals including the neurotransmitter acetylcholine and by blocking the movement of certain nerves and muscles. A potential reason might be that wrinkle relaxers block nerves that send pain messages to your brain and relaxes the muscles so they are less sensitive to pain. To treat chronic migraine, BOTOX® is injected into muscles of the forehead, the side and back of the head, and the neck and shoulders to produce a partial and temporary chemical “denervation” of the muscle.
