Botox® For Headaches and Migraines

Prevents headaches and migraines before they start

BOTOX® is the first and only FDA-approved preventive treatment for Chronic Migraine. Unlike acute treatments, which are taken to treat a headache or migraine once it's already begun, BOTOX® prevents headaches and migraines before they even start. BOTOX®prevents on average 8 to 9 headache days and migraine/probable migraine days a month (vs 6 to 7 for placebo).


The appointment 

The injections take about 15 minutes, and are done right in your doctor's office. The needles used for BOTOX® treatment are very small. People say that the injections feel like tiny pinpricks.

BOTOX® is injected into shallow muscles, not too deeply beneath the skin. Each treatment involves 31 injections in 7 key areas of the head and neck.

 

Treatment every 12 weeks

Chronic Migraine is just that—a chronic condition that benefits from preventive treatment. If you don't get treated every 12 weeks, you may not get the full benefit of BOTOX®. You will start with 2 treatments, 12 weeks apart. Reduction in headache days may improve over the course of 24 weeks. From there on out, you and your doctor will decide what's right for you, with retreatment recommended every 12 weeks.

Side effects of BOTOX® in clinical studies

The most common side effect was neck pain, which was experienced by 9% of BOTOX® patients (vs 3% for placebo).

Testimonials

Dr. Carpenter,



So many times in business and life in general, we are pummeled with the negative. I just wanted to drop a quick positive note to let you know how pleased I am with yourself and the entire staff at M Street Dental. My entire family have been patients with you for many years. I don’t believe anyone will tell you they enjoy going to the dentist and I will confess I am no exception. M Street Dental however has always maintained a genuinely positive and friendly atmosphere where I feel as though I am among friends. This includes your entire staff. On Thursday, January 17th, I went into your clinic expecting to have a what was left of a tooth that had broken off extracted. To my pleasant surprise you have put me on a treatment plan to basically “resurrect” this tooth. Keep up the great work & kudos to you all.

When I asked for an evaluation of my mouth, I thought I would probably lose all my remaining teeth, and start over. Remarkably you immediately removed the remains of 2 teeth and set up time the next day to make impressions. Your assistant made very good impressions, and made time the next day for your lab people to add to and repair my existing partial plates. A great job by all of you! The fit is amazing, and they work almost as well as normal teeth. They have needed no adjusting and I can eat green salad again, and apples! And the teeth that show in a smile look very natural. Thank all of you for a good job, well done. It is much appreciated! All done in 4 days!! Unbelievable! Thank you very much.
