Health campaigners say not enough is being done to help the eight million people in the UK who suffer from migraines. Many patients are not aware that they can treat migraines with Botox, with outstanding results. Botox is an excellent suppressor of pain signals and works particularly well for pain management and the relief of muscle spasms. Botox for migraine is a proven treatment option and can work by temporarily paralysing key muscles in the forehead, neck and shoulders, blocking the nerve connections. Botox can be an extremely viable treatment option for this debilitating condition and, when used in association with acupuncture and osteopathic manipulation, allows as many options for success as possible.
Dr Timothy Beazleigh at our Harley Street Clinic specialises in migraine treatments using Botox and a combination of osteopathy and acupuncture treatments to give as many options for success as possible.
Why use Botox to treat migraines?
Botox for migraines has been proven to be an effective treatment in the majority of patients and a Botox treatment for migraine works by temporarily paralysing key muscles in the forehead, neck and shoulders, blocking the nerve connections. As well as being a muscle relaxant, Botox is often effective at blocking pain signals and is often the treatment of choice for medical practitioners, particularly for pain management and the relief of muscle spasms.
What our customers say about our migraine treatments
After the consultation with Dr Beazleigh, I decided to try Botox as a form of treatment. I am extremely pleased to say that it has completely stopped any form of migraines and has overwhelmingly changed my life. I would (and do) recommend to anyone I meet that suffers with migraines to go and see Dr Beazleigh to discuss Botox treatment. I could not be any more pleased with the results. It’s absolutely amazing!!JW Surrey
How treatment is carried out and the cost
Botox and migraine are not usually words used in combination but migraine sufferers should be aware that Botox is a viable therapy for this debilitating condition. To treat chronic migraine headaches, Botox is injected every 12-16 weeks to specific sites around the head, neck and upper back to try to dull future headache symptoms. However, patients should be aware that this is a specialist treatment and should be performed by a qualified and experienced medical professional.
Botox for chronic migraines is offered within the Melior Clinics treatment portfolio at our London Botox Clinic located in Harley Street. A treatment consists of two sessions with a gap of 6-10 weeks between sessions and the total treatment cost is usually no more than £375 – often less, dependent on the amount of Botox required. Osteopathic manipulation and acupuncture are also used in conjunction with Botox to provide treatment results for migraines.
