What effect does Botox have in the treatment of migraine?

Migraine treatment with Botox is a medical practice that emerged as a result of coincidence. 
After the botox applications were applied to the face for aesthetic purposes, a significant decrease in migraine attacks (50-80%) and a serious decrease in the use of drugs due to migraine were determined in a very significant part of the patients, and scientific studies on the subject were initiated.
As a result of these scientific studies, it has been discovered that there are nerve compression points in the head and neck region that pull the trigger of the migraine attack. Migraine treatment with Botox is based on blocking the muscles that compress the nerves. In other words, compression of the nerves is prevented, so the trigger that initiates the migraine attack cannot be pulled.

How to treat migraine with Botox?

The most important step for the treatment of migraine with Botox is the correct detection of trigger points. In this context, trigger points are determined in the forehead, temple, and neck areas by the story taken from the patient about the starting points of the attacks. Botox injections are made to the determined trigger points, which will take about 15-20 minutes. Making the appropriate dose at the appropriate point is extremely important for the success of the treatment.

To whom migraine treatment with Botox can be applied?

Botox use can be beneficial for every migraine patient. However, those who have frequent attacks, do not benefit much from other treatments, and have to use a lot of drugs are the most suitable patients.
