Though it initially gained fame for its aesthetic applications, BOTOX® Cosmetic has also become a reliable treatment for several debilitating conditions. If you live in the Calgary area and you suffer from chronic headaches, Dr. Gordon Chee might be able to help you manage your symptoms.
Dr. Chee is happy to announce the addition of BOTOX® Cosmetic to his Alberta dentistry practice. If you suffer from severe headaches 15 days or more out of the month (medically considered “chronic”), you might be eligible for treatment with this injectable.
Headache treatment with BOTOX® Cosmetic consists of localized injections of a natural protein into specific, targeted areas of the face and neck. Once the injections are administered, the protein halts signals traveling between the nerves and muscles, inducing relaxation in the muscle targeted for treatment.
The advantages of BOTOX® aren’t constrained solely to smoothing the skin and temporarily preventing the formation of wrinkles. Headache sufferers can enjoy benefits like:
- Reduced muscle pressure on nerves in the face, reducing headache risk and severity
- Headache relief can last up to three months after treatment
- Minimized reliance on over-the-counter medication
