Revelations for this use came about as many patients who had received Botox injections for cosmetic reasons reported fewer recurring headaches than before. In recent years, Botox injections have emerged as a viable treatment for headaches. Relief from headaches after Botox injections has lasted anywhere from two to six months. It is primarily used for certain types of migraine headaches
There has yet to be a definitive reason why Botox injections have aided in pain alleviation, but it is thought that the Botox injection decreases muscle tension, which should then result in a positive effect on headache recurrence.
