What is a Botox for Migraines?

Botox is a form of toxin produced by the bacteria that causes botulism. When the Botox botulinum toxin is purified and used in tiny doses in specific areas, it temporarily reduces muscle contractions.

Reduction of muscle contractions was essential for cosmetics reasons but it is also an effective way to reduce headaches significantly at least for 3 months when other forms of treatment including oral medications fail. Botox is only FDA-approved for chronic migraines, which means headache on 15 or more days a month.
