What Is BOTOX®?
BOTOX® is a purified protein isolated from a microorganism. Many important drugs we use today like antibiotics were first isolated from microorganisms.
The cosmetic form of BOTOX® is a popular drug that’s injected to reduce lines and wrinkles. BOTOX® reduces facial lines and wrinkles, as well as crow’s feet lines near the eyes.
How Does BOTOX® Work?
Some facial wrinkles develop from constant contraction of facial muscles. BOTOX® relaxes those muscles by blocking the nerve impulses that make them contract.
Tiny doses get injected under the skin to reduce wrinkles and expression lines. Areas that can be treated with BOTOX® include the forehead, frown lines, crow’s feet, lips, chin, and neck bands.
The combination of topical anesthetic and a tiny needle makes BOTOX® painless. When you get BOTOX®, you won’t need to recover afterwards. It takes BOTOX® 3 days to relax the wrinkles and the effects last 3-6 months.
BOTOX® for Migraine Headaches
Many insurance companies now pay for BOTOX injections for chronic migraine headaches, which means you suffer from migraines approximately half of the time. Other qualifications include:
- You have seen a neurologist
- You have had a MRI Scan
- Tried other migraine treatments
We encourage you to schedule a consultation with our team to determine if you would benefit from BOTOX for migraines. Our insurance specialists will work with your insurance company to find out whether you meet the criteria for this procedure to be covered.
