SkinViva’s latest video explains how migraine can be relieved with BOTOX injections.

BOTOX is best known as a wrinkle-relaxing treatment for the face, but it has other uses as well – one of which is for relieving the suffering caused by migraine.

The new video is fronted by SkinViva aesthetic medical professional, Dr Sharan.

She introduces the treatment saying:

“Migraines can be very disabling and migraine sufferers will find that the often lose a lot of days off work from it; so if they have tried all the other options via their own GP and they’re still suffering with migraines it could be something that drastically changes their quality of life if they’re getting rid of those. Even if it’s just a few less headaches a month it’s of large benefit.”

Treatment is administered using a very fine BOTOX needle and takes a few minutes. The treatment works by reducing an element of a chemical called Substance P, which has been linked to the sensation of pain.

The BOTOX also targets and relaxes the muscles which are thought to be tense when you are having a migraine attack.

“2 weeks after your injections is when your BOTOX will be working, so you should be noticing a reduction in headaches and in migraines.”
