Benefits of BOTOX®
Not knowing when a headache or migraine will occur can be challenging. While other treatments may help you once you already have a headache, a preventive medication like BOTOX® therapy is approved to help prevent headache days.
BOTOX® therapy is injected by a doctor every 12 weeks. After 2 treatment sessions you may be able to start experiencing fewer headache days too!
