Botox for wrinkles

Botox for wrinkles

Botox, which is well known as a wrinkle treatment, has recently been FDA approved as a treatment for chronic migraine headaches. A recent Wall Street Journal article reviewed the scientific data as well as which patients might be helped by this treatment. Read more..

You may wonder if one treatment with Botox can help both wrinkles and migraines. The answer is both yes and no. For patients that experience migraines with a focus of muscle tension in the forehead , around the eyes or between the eyebrows ( the usual treatment targets for anti-wrinkle Botox) Botox injections will relax the muscles in those areas. Anecdotally, I have several patients, who report the secondary benefit of fewer migraine or tension headaches for 3-4 months after Botox injections for wrinkles.
On the other hand, the Botox treatment protocols for wrinkle reduction and migraine headaches differ in both the quantity of Botox injected and the sites of injection. The recommended Botox treatment for chronic migraine headaches (15 days/month) involves 31 injections in 7 sites on the head, neck and shoulders. The wrinkle treatment with Botox involves 5 or 6 injections in one facial area such as the forehead or eyes. Those suffering from severe, chronic migraines should be treated by a neurologist with special expertise in treating migraines with Botox. Treatment costs $1000-$1500/session, but may be covered by insurance. Patients with less severe migraines, who are using Botox for cosmetic indications, may have headache reduction but the scientific evidence is not yet available to support Botox use for this group. For now, patients need to pick their Botox target-wrinkles or headaches.

    Hi, Spot Treatment has almost showed a visible reduction in the appearance of wrinkles! with almost no side effects. It also helped to reduce skin discolorations and brown spots. The ingredients in Become Beauty’s Product which is Spot Treatment won’t hurt your face, won’t dry out your skin, and won’t cause negative reactions for 98% of people there’s always a small percentage who have a negative reaction to anything. This is the biggest problem I’ve found in other products, they have bad reactions to the skin in large portions of the people who use them. Everyone’s skin looks stronger, tighter, and brighter than it did before they used the Spot Treatment of Become Beauty. It lifts fine lines around the eyes, eye lids, and even the brow bone really well. It also treats the causes of aging, not just the signs. The ingredients help make the skin healthier so that wrinkles stay away longer and have a harder time coming back. I was made aware of this product by you. I’ve been using Spot Treatment for the last 5 weeks and the results are simply wow! I’ve had all my coworkers ask me which spa I’ve been going to. What new injection I’ve been taking and all kinds of other accusations. But all I’ve changed in my lifestyle is to start applying Become Beauty’s Spot Treatment . I love it! and the smell is awesome. Spot Treatment is the best for wrinkles and acne skin care product I’ve ever seen. Nothing else comes close in terms of effectiveness and reliability. Other creams are as effective, but not as reliable don’t work for as many people.Other creams are as
    reliable, but not as effective work for lots of people, but not as Become Beauty’s Spot Treatment.
    Thanks Become !!
