Botox can help cure migraines

Posted: Updated:

You may think of Botox as the wrinkle remover, but did you know that injection was recently approved for use in removing headaches as well?

Dr. Johnny Qubty said, "Botox works by paralyzing muscle groups and by paralyzing those muscle groups, the tension component is relieved, and the patient's migraine starts disappearing."Now that its FDA approved for a migraine headache we've been able to get more patients to come in, and the insurances will cover it now."

Dr. Qubty says for some, it's an added perk that Botox can relieve headaches and makes you look younger at the same time.
