Botox injections are the world’s number one anti-ageing cosmetic treatment. They have become popular very simply because of the powerful results.
Botox relaxes the fine dynamic facial muscles so that the appearance of lines and wrinkles is reduced, making skin look younger.
However, botulinum toxin, the agent used in wrinkle-relaxing injections, is a powerful substance and has been found to have impact much greater than aesthetic results.
When patients began to mention that their migraines were improved following Botox treatment, research began to explore whether Botox could in fact be used in the treatment of migraine, alleviating symptoms such as sickness and dizziness as well as profoundly affecting headaches.
Now NICE has approved the use of Botox injections for migraine sufferers in the UK, although the criteria state that they need to be having at least 8 migraine attacks each month and have unsuccessfully tried at least 3 medications. Clearly these guidelines will reduce the availability of Botox for only the most severe migraine patients.
