How does Botox treat migraines?

Botox has been approved as a preventive treatment for chronic migraine headaches by UK regulators, the MHRA.

Botox injections have been shown to be effective in preventing the headaches, nausea and dizziness associated with chronic migraines. Botox can help to prevent severe headaches by temporarily paralysing key muscles in the forehead, neck and shoulders, blocking the nerve connections and alleviating the pain and discomfort caused by migraines. As well as being a muscle relaxant, Botox may also be effective at blocking pain signals to the brain, which could potentially help those experiencing different kinds of discomfort, such as muscular strains and back problems.

Chronic migraine symptoms include:

  • Severe headaches;
  • Visual disturbances such as spots or flashing lights;
  • Sensitivity to light, noise, or smells;
  • Nausea and vomiting; and
  • Tingling sensations, pins and needles, and weakness or numbness in the limbs.

What is the migraine treatment like?

To treat chronic migraine headaches, our highly trained team of medical practitioners inject Botox into specific areas around the head, neck and upper back every 12 to 16 weeks. Our team are highly experienced in administering Botox injections in sensitive areas. Our knowledge and understanding of how to alleviate the pain and discomfort caused by migraines has led to our recognition as one of the top Botox migraine treatment clinics in the UK.

Your treatment will be administered by our team of highly trained doctors and nurses, lead by Dr Timothy Beazleigh (founder and lead medical practitioner at Melior Clinics of Harley Street). We specialise in treating chronic migraines and severe headaches using Botox.

At our Huntingdon clinic you can enhance your migraine treatment by including a combination of osteopathy and acupuncture.

A couple of months ago I had Botox treatment for the prevention of migraines, and I’m extremely thankful to Dr Timothy Beazleigh who carried out the procedure as I have felt so well since.

Botox injections are traditionally associated with facial aesthetics as an anti-wrinkle treatment. However, Botox is also an effective treatment for the relief of a wide variety of medical conditions including hyperhidrosis and is often the treatment of choice for medical practitioners, particularly for pain management and the relief of muscle spasms.
