What Is Migraine Treatment?
A migraine is a neurological condition that often causes a severe, debilitating headache. Migraine headaches have numerous causes, such as hormonal fluctuations, stress, medical conditions, weather changes, medications, and physical activity. A migraine's symptoms can include throbbing head pain, light sensitivity, fatigue, nausea, and vomiting. If you are experiencing frequent migraines, Dr. Leonel Perez can administer BOTOX® injections in the head and neck to prevent migraine headaches and provide relief. Call Beyond Esthetics in Annandale, VA for more information about BOTOX for chronic (long-term) migraine treatment or to schedule a consultation.
What Are the Benefits of Migraine Treatment?
Migraine headaches can be exhausting, frustrating ailments that keep you from fulfilling your responsibilities at work and home. At Beyond Esthetics, we offer relief in the form of BOTOX injections. While BOTOX is the nation’s most popular aesthetic injectable treatment, it can also help you take back your life from your most debilitating headaches. Benefits of BOTOX for migraine treatment in Annandale, VA may include:
- Fast treatments with little or no discomfort
- Reliable relief from migraine pain and related symptoms
- Outcomes are usually noticeable a few weeks after your first injection
- Can be complemented by existing migraine medications
- A reduction in overall headache days
Who is a Candidate for Migraine Treatment?
Generally speaking, patients who suffer from 12-15 migraine days each month are considered ideal candidates for migraine treatment with BOTOX. Patients should also be in good health otherwise, not pregnant, and have no contraindications or allergies to the ingredients in BOTOX. Prior to administering BOTOX treatment, our expert team will conduct a thorough consultation, including a review of your health and medical history, to ensure BOTOX for migraines is a safe and appropriate option for you.
How Are Migraines Treated?
At our Annandale, VA practice, we use a fine needle to inject BOTOX into areas of your head and neck. This will interrupt the release of chemicals in pain transmission, reducing and preventing migraine headaches. Most patients report only mild discomfort and a slight pinprick sensation. BOTOX for migraines starts with two treatments 12 weeks apart and then usually one treatment every 12 weeks. Following your appointment, you may notice some irritation or swelling at your injection sites, but that should go away on its own. Some patients feel relief in just four weeks while longer-lasting results are noticeable if you continue treatment as recommended by Dr. Perez.
What Should I Expect After Migraine Treatments with BOTOX?
After receiving migraine treatment with BOTOX at Beyond Esthetics, you may experience temporary discomfort, including bruising, redness, or swelling. However, these effects should go away on their own. Serious side effects are rare. In most cases, it takes approximately 10 – 14 days for the injections to begin working. After this time, most patients at our Annandale, VA office find that the severity and frequency of their migraines are significantly reduced. Injections are typically repeated once every 12 weeks for optimal results.
Beyond Esthetics Reviews
This is one of the most professional medical offices I have been in. I came for my consultation and last minute had to bring my baby and they were so understanding, kind, and genuine! Looking forward to my procedure soon! Very happy to have found them and that they are so close to home!
Wonderful office and amazing staff very knowledgeable with all the different types of treatments and upgraded technology with all their lasers. I had a great experience with my cosmetic treatment and highly recommend Dr. Leo. Can’t wait to get my next treatment, I love this place!!
I've been getting ‘tox injections at Beyond Esthetics for several months now, and I couldn't be happier with the results. The staff is friendly and professional, and the injections are painless. Highly recommend!
I had a real “treat yourself” moment – I didn’t want a facelift, so we’re doing a combination therapy! Laser skin resurfacing, collagen contouring, a little IPL, and a combo of tox and filler. I started back in January and the results are giving me a decade back at least. The staff at Beyond Esthetics were incredibly knowledgeable and helpful during my initial consultation. They took the time to understand my concerns and recommended the perfect treatment for me. I'm so happy with the results!
I've struggled with hair loss for years, but the hair restoration treatment at Beyond Esthetics has been a game changer. My hair looks fuller and healthier than ever, and the staff was incredibly supportive throughout the process. Kam has become both my esthetician and therapist for life!
