If you suffer from chronic migraines, it’s important to know you have options. At Calgary Vein & Laser, we understand the debilitating effects these headaches have on people and we are pleased to offer migraine treatment in Calgary through the use of Botox®. We are certified Botox® injectors and will answer any questions you have about this procedure.
Many medications are used to help prevent and treat migraines. Other lifestyle changes and home remedies may also be useful in providing some degree of relief. At Calgary Vein & Laser we can give you another option – Botox®. This injectable prescription medication is used as a preventative method. Botox® is only approved for people with chronic migraines, which is defined by 15 or more headache days a month with each episode lasting 4 hours or more. You should not use Botox® therapy if you have fewer than 15 headache days per month.
There are possible side effects and safety information to consider before starting this migraine treatment. Your complete medical history – including allergies and existing medical conditions, will need to be evaluated.
Calgary Vein & Laser will help determine if Botox® is right for you. Give us a call today to get started.
