Botox Injections for Migraines

Botox injections for migraines, a prescription medicine known as onabotulinumtoxinA, are an innovative treatment for adults with chronic migraines. Approved by the FDA in 2010, this treatment is designed for individuals experiencing 15 or more headache days each month, with each headache lasting four hours or more. Botox prevents headaches and migraine attacks before they start, with injections administered around the head and neck at specific sites known to affect chronic migraines​​​​.

The procedure involves injecting Botox using fine needles into shallow muscles beneath the skin in seven key areas of the head and neck. Each session typically involves 31 injections and takes about 10 minutes in our office. Patients often feel results a few days after the initial treatment, with the full effect occurring two weeks later. To maintain the benefits, treatments are scheduled every 12 weeks. Common side effects include neck pain, with other less frequent side effects also possible​​​​​​​​. To explore the potential benefits of Botox injections for managing your chronic migraines, book an appointment with Alta Pain Physicians in Sandy, UT. Our experienced physicians can help you identify if this treatment is suitable for you and develop a personalized treatment plan.
