The answer is yes! We are all familiar with Botox treatment for wrinkles, but not many of us know that Botox can also help reduce migraines too! Here at RejuvamMD in Toronto, Ontario, Dr. Rouzati highly encourages those who suffer from migraines to give Botox a try. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), living with migraines on a daily basis is extremely disabling. Many of Dr. Rouzati’s patients here at RejuvaMD have gotten fantastic results with Botox for migraines, and are now enjoying life as they should be.

So how does it work?

By relaxing the muscles in the face, neck and head, Botox considerably reduces migraine frequency, severity, acute medication usage and associated vomiting in approximately 80% of sufferers. Botox interrupts signals to the nerves that cause muscle contractions and initiate the unpredictable nerve firing and blood vessel spasms of migraine headaches. After a Botox therapeutic injection, migraine attacks can be reduced for approximately 3-5 months.

When and Where?

Dr. Rouzati designs an individualized injection plan that involves small injections to the scalp, neck, and face areas. Most patients return directly to work or normal activity immediately following a Botox treatment. The Botox starts to work 3 to 4 days after the procedure and migraines become less frequent or severe. Here at RejuvaMD. Dr. Rouzati carefully selects the appropriate points and administers the Botox safely and effectively, making sure you get the best out of your treatment.
