Trading in your Advil for Botox? Yes, please. Now you can see the light without the migraine pain thanks to Botox.
Are you one of those people shoveling ibuprofen down your throat and squinting your eyes in pain as your head wildly pounds? You may be one of the 37 million Americans that suffer from migraines. Lucky for you, board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Paul Wigoda and celebrity Hits 97.3 DJ Kimmy B. share insight and solutions to get you some migraine relief.
We followed Kimmy B on her journey to get her painless breast implants, to which she poignantly called her #wigodas! Now, we check back up on her newest painless adventure, Botox for migraines! We caught up with her and Dr. Wigoda after their Botox session to ask some of the most pressing questions about Botox.
“Botox has been so beneficial to me as far as migraines go!” Kimmy B says, and adds how she also loves how amazing it makes her look!
Botox: A Crash Course
As always, it’s important to learn all you can about any procedure before you jump right into it. Let’s tell you a little about what botox is before we tell you all of the awesome ways it can help stop those pesky migraines.
“Kimmy B comes in primarily for migraines, but the Botox also helps with wrinkles,” Dr. Wigoda tells us as he prepares for the procedure.
As seen on Dr. Wigoda’s website, Botox is “a therapeutic muscle-relaxing agent that works at motor nerve endings (nerves that lead to muscles). It is in a class of drugs called neurotoxins.” It is administered through one or multiple shots into the muscle at different points in the patient’s body, depending on what it is being used to treat.
Other important tips to know about Botox are that you usually don’t see the effects up until three days after your procedure. Furthermore, a Botox session will last between three-to-six months. Botox to get rid of headaches will often be re-administered every three months. Don’t worry though, a session usually only lasts 10-to-15 minutes! Plenty of time to get rid of those headaches and then take the day by storm.
Benefits To Botox?
Now that we know the “in’s and out’s” of what Botox is, let’s look at some of the benefits patients are getting out of it and just how popular this cosmetic surgery treatment technique has become:
- According to the official Botox website, BOTOX prevents on average eight-to-nine headache, migraine, and/or probable migraine days a month.
- 100,000 people with Chronic Migraine have been treated with BOTOX since the FDA approval in 2010, with that number rapidly increasing!
- Botox treatments can help reduce symptoms of migraine headaches, including nausea, vomiting, sensitivity to lights, sounds, and smells.
