What is BOTOX® for Migraines?

Botox® is a biologic, which means it is a prescription pharmaceutical derived from the living botulinum toxin A. This pure protein suppresses neurotransmitter release.

Injections of the neuromodulator intramuscularly block the body’s central pain processing response, which causes migraine headaches. This migraine prevention therapy was authorised by Health Canada in 2011.

  • Thirty-one injections are administered into seven specific locations on the head and neck
  • The needles are extremely small, slender, and just approximately a half-inch long
  • Injections are shallow, taking place just beneath the skin
  • The majority of people describe the sensation as pinpricks or minor pinches
  • A typical injection session lasts roughly 15 minutes
  • There is no downtime after therapy
  • Re-treatment is normally recommended every 12 weeks
