Effective Migraine Treatments with Botox® at CJA Aesthetics Clinics in Hampshire – Southampton, Portsmouth, Southsea, Winchester & Chichester
Chronic migraine is defined as headaches occurring on 15 or more days each month, at least half of which have migrainous features such as a recurrent throbbing headache accompanied by nausea and disturbed vision.
If you are suffering from these symptoms you should consult your doctor to find out about the range of treatment options available to you.
Some adults suffering from chronic migraine find relief from their symptoms through Botox® injections, available at CJA Aesthetics Salons in Southampton, Portsmouth, Chichester & Winchester.
Botox was licensed specifically for the treatment of chronic migraine in July 2010 by the Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA). It has not been shown to be effective for any other headache type (e.g. episodic migraine, tension-type headache, cluster headache) as yet.
During trials, migraine patients received injections every 12 weeks over 56 weeks. At six months, after two cycles of treatment, those treated with Botox had on average eight fewer days of headache each month. After 12 months, 70% of those treated had around half the number of headaches. No serious irreversible side effects have ever been reported in trials of Botox in headache.

How Does Botox Improve Migraines?
It is believed that botulinum toxin blocks the sensory pathways which play a key role in the headache phase of the migraine attack.
Our treatments are administered by Dr Chris Airey, a fully registered doctor with the GMC (General Medical Council) and Care Quality Commission (CQC). Botox is usually administered approximately every 12 weeks for migraines as the treatment response is considered more reliable over this time period.
