Botox for Migraine Relief


Muscles that are located in the neck and head require a nerve impulse in order to become tense or knotted. Without this nerve stimulation, the muscles are not able to tense up causing a headache or migraine.

Botox Therapeutic® is injected into the affected muscles and blocks the nerve impulse from reaching the muscles. This blockade permits the relaxation of the muscles injected and diminishes the transmission of pain signals.

Patients will notice an improvement in the frequency and severity of headaches and migraines over a 3 to 5 month period, after which time the treatment can be repeated if needed. It is unknown at this time if the benefits are cumulative with time. Onset of results is typically achieved within two weeks. Patients may choose to discontinue use of other prophylactic headache medications. Forehead frown lines and worry lines may disappear as a result of treatment.

Who can benefit from treatment with Botox®?

  • Migraine patients ;
  • Patients suffering from tension-type headaches ;
  • Patients suffering from cervico-genic headaches ;
  • Patients with post traumatic headaches.

Are there any risks?

  • There is a risk that the treatment will be ineffective ;
  • Temporary bruising may occur at the site of injection ;

The muscles that are responsible for raising the eyebrows, and the muscles that elevate and shrug the shoulders may be temporarily affected, but this is not a major concern.

Most extended health plans will cover the cost of Botox Therapeutic® for the treatment of headaches and migraines. After the initial consultation, Dr. Arsenault will provide you with a letter for your insurance company.
