Botox for Migraines

I have suffered from migraines since I was 12 years old, and I have tried every medication in the book (with no relief)! I had heard about Botox for migraines, but was very skeptical about it since I had not had any success with anything else in the past. After a few more months of debilitating headaches, I finally gave in and scheduled an appointment with Dr V. He is extremely sincere, and spent quite a bit of time answering all of my questions. Dr V explained that although Botox for migraines is different than just the cosmetic use, the migraine treatment should include the cosmetic portion for the best results (which neurologists do not typically do). I decided to go ahead with the procedure. Dr V injected Botox between my eyes and on my forehead (common cosmetic areas), as well as in my temples and at the base of my skull (top part of my neck). It didn’t hurt half as much as I expected it to. After 2 weeks I noticed a difference… my headaches were still there, but they seemed a little less intense. I went in for a follow up appointment, and Dr V suggested that we do a touch up treatment to see if thats makes a bigger improvement. To my astonishment, I was almost completely headache free one week after that touch-up… Something I never thought to be possible! Plus, I absolutely love how open and relaxed my eyes and forehead look from the Botox! I now recommend Dr V to anyone who has suffered from migraines, and to anyone who just wants to look refreshed! Thank you Dr V!
