Migraine treatment often relies on taking medication to reduce the pain and intensity of a migraine attack but the best treatment is treatment to PREVENT attacks occurring in the first place and BOTOX injections have been clinically proven to reduce the frequency of migraine headaches.
The National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) has approved the use of Botox to treat migraine.
As a life long migraine sufferer, Dr Charlson knows only too well the devastating effect migraine has on you quality of life and well being. Botox injections have been licensed for prevention of chronic migraine. This treatment reduces migraines by 50% in 70% of suffers with chronic migraine. (This means a headache 15 days per month) . The revolutionary migraine treatment requires precise injections around the head and neck. In some cases migraine treatment may be available on the NHS but many patients prefer to seek private treatment due to the profound effect it has on their quality of life and the difficulty in obtaining this treatment initially and on an ongoing basis.
Treatment costs are around £600 for a first treatment including a consultation and £450 for subsequent treatments.
