Botox is a toxin which is injected into muscles and used to temporarily improve the look of both moderate to severe wrinkles.
It may also reduce the frequency and number of headaches associated with chronic migranes.
It usually takes 14-21 days after the first injection of Botox to experience any effect from migranes. However, their effect may increase and patients can get relief from migranes for 3 – 6 months.
