Why is Seeing a Headache Specialist Important?
Experts recommend seeing a specialist because he or she is experienced in injection techniques.
You may be thinking: why 31 injections? It’s because there are proven sites on the neck and head where BOTOX® is injected to make its full impact. Remember, it’s a very fine needle and injections are into shallow muscles of the head and neck, just beneath the skin.
A specialist injects BOTOX into 7 key muscle areas of the head and neck (31 injections total), once every 12 weeks.
With proper injections, you could have fewer headaches and migraines. On average, BOTOX prevents 8 to 9 headache days and migraine/probable migraine days a month as compared to 6 to 7 for placebo.
