Dermatologists in San Diego Say Botox is a Safe & Effective Treatment for Migraine & Tension Headache Relief
Date:5/8/2013

San Diego, California (PRWEB) May 08, 2013

According to recent reports and additional testing, Botox injections continue to prove safe and effective for the treatment of migraines and tension headaches. At the highly-respected center of Goldman, Butterwick, Fitzpatrick, Groff & Fabi Cosmetic Laser Dermatology in San Diego, respected dermatologist Dr. Butterwick explains exactly how Botox can be used to mitigate the condition.

“There are specific points that are typically injected to alleviate tension headaches that include the scalp and back of the head. Botox works to temporarily freeze these muscles and areas, which in turn result in less head and neck pain for the individual treated,” said board certified dermatologist Kimberly Butterwick, MD.

In the new article, neurologists explain that patients who receive Botox injections to treat migraines and tension headaches generally undergo treatments once every 12 weeks to see the best results. Sufferers of migraines, which are often a debilitating and ongoing frustration affecting 12% of Americans, can first try cosmetic injections before undergoing the typical protocol of 31 scalp injections.

“A number of times before, I’ve performed cosmetic Botox injections for patients to the glabella and they’ve noted a tremendous improvement in headaches,” said Dr. Richard Fitzpatrick, board certified dermatologist. “Treating cosmetic areas like the forehead often requires much less Botox than scalp injections, typically between only 6-8."

At GBFG&F Cosmetic Laser Dermatology, undergoing Botox in San Diego for tension headaches can also bring an added benefit for patients—the diminishment of unwanted facial wrinkles around the forehead and eyes. As Dr. Butterwick explains, Botox can act as a two-in-one treatment.

“A lot of times, patients come in for cosmetic Botox injections and are completely unaware that it could also help any headaches they’re experiencing.,” said Dr. Butterwick, San Diego Dermatologist. “It’s like patients are actually buying one treatment and getting another free. When headaches happen as a result of scrunching your face throughout the day, Botox will temporarily freeze the muscles responsible for this, making frown lines disappear and improving headaches.”

Goldman, MD, Kimberly Butterwick, MD, Richard Fitzpatrick, MD, William Groff, MD, and Sabrina Fabi, MD.
