Botox for Migraines, Acupuncture & Stem Cell Therapy in Studio City

Dr. Jeffrey Glaser uses Botox to treat patients who are plagued by migraine headaches that cannot be adequately controlled with oral medication. Those with chronic migraines, defined as lasting four hours per day or longer for 15 or more days per month, may not be aware that Botox can provide significant relief.

Dr. Glaser may consider a patient a candidate for treatment using Botox for migraines if he or she is:

  • over 18 years of age
  • not pregnant or nursing
  • not hypersensitive to botulinum toxin
  • without infections at injection sites
  • without urinary tract infections
  • without spasticity

In placebo-controlled double blind clinical studies, Botox has shown statistically significant, clinically meaningful improvements in the reduction of migraine pain. The unpredictability of migraines can be challenging. Other treatments may help once the patient already has a headache; but Botox is a preventive medication therapy that is approved to help prevent those debilitating headache days.

Patient response to Botox

We typically inject Botox for migraines about every 12 weeks. After two treatment sessions, patients begin experiencing fewer headache days. It can take several weeks before the patient has a response to this treatment. Patients typically show an initial response at about four weeks into treatment. After two treatments (about 24 weeks), Botox reduces pain and prevents up to nine headache days each month.

The only FDA-approved preventive treatment

Botox is the first and only preventive treatment approved by the FDA for adults with chronic migraine. Botox has not been approved for adults with 14 or fewer migraine headache days a month and has not been approved for patients younger than 18 years of age.
