BOTOX® Cosmetic for Migraines

HeadacheHeadaches are one of the most common reasons people visit their family Doctors in Canada. The diagnosis of migraine is the most common headache type and is historically under-diagnosed.

A migraine may also have additional symptoms such as dizziness, sensitivity to light and sound, nausea, and even vomiting. In many people the throbbing pain occurs only on one side of the head.

Dr. Shehla Ebrahim, our experienced physician, provides an overview of this condition and the treatment options.

  • 2.6 million adult women and 1 million men suffer from migraines
  • 90% have extreme pain associated with the migraine, with 33% requiring bed rest during an attack

Many migraine sufferers do not improve with the traditional oral medications, and they may experience unpleasant side effects.

Dr. Ebrahim offers BOTOX® injections to prevent headaches in adults who have chronic migraine pain occurring 15 days or more in a month and lasting over four hours each time.

Botulinum toxin type A and B can also be used for medical treatments like focal hyperhidrosis (profuse sweating), bruxism (excessive grinding of the teeth), and chronic migraine.

Dr. Ebrahim also encourages her clients to pay attention to their lifestyle and specific migraine triggers. She advises individuals to:

  • Practice regular relaxation techniques
  • Get a good night’s sleep
  • Develop stress management skills
