Botox for migraines? In an article just published in the Archives of Dermatology, research carried out by Drs. Arndt, Dover and colleagues from SkinCare Physicians and Harvard Medical School demonstrated that indeed it often can diminish or prevent certain types of migraine headaches. Patients who describe their symptoms as "crushing" or "vice-like" had a reduced frequency of headaches from 6.8 days per month to 0.7 days per month. Botox was used in the same fashion as it is administered for lines or expression or wrinkles. Continued use of this neuromodulator may bring striking relief to many who have long suffered with this difficult problem.
