How Do Injectable Neuromodulators Treat Migraines?
Botox, Dysport, and Xeomin not only smooth away lines and wrinkles, they significantly improve migraines. Evidence suggests that these drugs interrupt the pathway of pain transmission between the central nervous system and the nerves extending from the spinal cord.
When a migraine develops, the human body releases neurotransmitters and molecules associated with pain. When injected in strategic points into the muscles around the face, neck, and head, the neuromodulators interfere with the transmission of these substances, blocking the feeling of pain.
We'll use tiny needles to inject the neurotoxin into key areas around your face, head, and neck. Patients typically require 2-3 rounds of injections three months apart. Some individuals see improvement in their chronic migraines as early as four weeks after the initial treatment, with progress continuing for 24 weeks. After two treatments 12 weeks apart, we'll determine whether neurotoxins work for your migraines.
Patients typically require neurotoxin injections every three months. It's essential to keep up with your treatment schedule to prevent migraines from recurring. Once they take effect, injectable neuromodulators can prevent migraines from ever starting!
The best way to determine whether injectable neuromodulators are right to treat your migraines is to consult our medical aesthetic providers at Renewed Medical Health and Beauty Wellness Center.
