Migraine is a chronic type of headache and is often characterized by recurrent and severe headaches. Botox is a word that comes from the abbreviation botulinum toxin, a protein that, when administered to the human body in the right amounts, can help reduce wrinkles by relaxing muscles.

The use of Botox for migraine is considered to relax the skull muscles due to its muscle relaxant effect and thus reduce the headache.

What is Migraine Botox?

As we go about our daily lives, we experience pain of varying intensity in different parts of the body, which may or may not be due to an organ-related cause. These pains can be short-term (acute) or long-term and recurrent (chronic).

Headache is the most common and complained about pain in the society. Primary headaches, which are not related to other diseases, constitute a large proportion of headaches (90%).

Migraine (migraine) is a moderate or severe headache that occurs suddenly on one side of the head, mostly in the temple, forehead and nape. It is also known as Half Headache. Migraine, which starts in any age period, mostly in adolescence, decreases in frequency over time, continuous or recurrent, is among the primary headaches. Migraine is accompanied by nausea, vomiting, sensitivity to sound and light, blurred and blurred vision, and the smell of different odors, which negatively affect the comfort of daily life and can last for hours or even days. Migraine that occurs at least two to eight days in a month and progresses as four-hour pain attacks is considered chronic migraine. The incidence rate in women is approximately four times that of men. Chronic migraine ranks in the top twenty on the List of Diseases that Restrict Labor Force in the World.

There has not yet been an accurate, generally accepted determination about the cause of migraine. However, gene structure, age, gender and some activities and chemicals in the brain - nervous system are considered to be factors that cause migraine or increase its effect. Especially abnormal activities occurring in the brain affect the nerves, chemicals in the nerves and brain, blood vessels and the transmission between them.

Where is Migraine Botox Done?

In migraine botox; Since the communication chemicals (neurotransmitters) sent to the brain by the Nervus Trigeminus during the onset phase of migraine cause pain, it is aimed to weaken and neutralize this nerve and the muscles it controls. Botox, a purified protein-containing toxin derived from Clostridium Botulinum bacteria in a laboratory environment, blocks the nerve endings by preventing the chemical secretion of the nerves in the area where it is injected, weakens the nerves and prevents the occurrence of pain.

In migraine botox application; Depending on the severity of pain seen in the patient, pain threshold and pain area, botox is injected into the appropriate points in the interbrow (glabella), side (temporal), frontal (frontal) and back (suboccipital) regions of the head, neck and shoulder regions with the help of cannula or fine-tipped needles, the nervous system and related muscles are blocked and the release of pain chemicals is stopped and their transmission to the brain is prevented. This application is repeated every 3 months.

Since the injection site is numbed with anesthetic gels and creams, no pain is felt during and after the injection, only mild burning and soreness may be felt, which can be reduced by applying ice therapy (cold compress) to the injection sites.

After the application, hospitalization is not required and daily life is continued. You can return to work on the same day. However, in the first few days, heavy activities that require excessive force and increase the body's heat level and extremely hot environments should be avoided, and the botoxed areas should not be rubbed.
