BOTOX® for Migraine Headache

BOTOX® Therapeutic has been used with increasing frequency by doctors for over 20 years for more and more medical conditions. It also allows many Vancouver residents suffering from migraine headache, tension headache, temporomandibular joint pain (TMJ pain), and bruxism to experience blissful breaks. If you have been prescribed a bite block because of teeth grinding, you should also consider BOTOX® treatment in Vancouver for the masseter (chewing) muscles. In addition, Dr. Braun has found BOTOX® very useful for patients with chronic soft tissue pain in their head and neck, often following motor vehicle accidents or other trauma.

BOTOX® Migraine Treatment Benefits

BOTOX® Therapeutic can also reduce the size and shape of an enlarged jawline and effectively control excessive sweating on areas like the underarms and palms.

How BOTOX® Works on Headaches

The procedure is fairly simple. A small volume of BOTOX® is injected into the affected area through a very fine needle. The needle is placed just under the skin. You will receive multiple injections based on your doctor’s assessment of the area and condition to be treated.

What to Expect

Pain relief with BOTOX® is often dramatic and profound. The reduction in pain from various syndromes ranges from 3 to 6 months. The tiny injections are tailored depending on the patient’s feedback. It usually only takes 1 or 2 sessions of BOTOX® to determine the success of your response.

BOTOX® Therapeutic is covered by most private insurance plans. If the cost of your BOTOX® is covered by your plan, we will only charge you an injection fee.
