Botox- Help for Migraines

Botox Injection New York NY

A migraine can cause a pulsing sensation or severe throbbing pain, usually located on one side of the head. Migraines can last for hours to days if left untreated. Living and suffering from migraines can be debilitating and interfere with your daily activities. If you have a history of migraines or have headaches on 15 or more days a month then Botox may be the key to some relief. In 2010, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved the use of onabotulinumtoxinA (Botox) as a treatment for chronic migraines.

How does Botox work for migraines?

Botox enters the nerve endings around where the Botox is injected and blocks the release of chemicals involved in transmitting to the brain pain signals. The targeted areas of Botox injections include the bridge of the nose, forehead, temples, back of the head, neck, and just above the shoulder blades on the upper back. A very small sharp needle is used to perform the injections. The injection could produce a slight burning sensation at the Botox injection site. The entire process usually is about 10-15 minutes. The Botox injections should be handled by a specially trained doctor to ensure the Botox injections are properly administered. Dr. Maurice Khosh, a dual board-certified plastic surgeon, specializes in treating migraines with Botox injections.

How long before I see improvement?

Botox injections are usually given every 12 weeks as recommended by the American Headache Society. The Botox injections can help reduce the symptoms of migraines including nausea and sensitivity to lights, sounds, and smells. It could take 10-14 days before you experience any relief following your initial Botox treatment. Depending on the severity of your migraines, you may need multiple Botox treatments to see improvement.

Meredith G.
Saw Dr. Khosh for a fractured nose. He reset my nose beautifully (and with little discomfort to me) and then discussed some of my sinus issues with me upon my follow up visit. Never felt like he was rushing me out and felt very confident in his abilities. I would highly recommend to anyone needing plastic or reconstructive options!
Jackie C.
Great front office, really good experience after what was a terrible accident. I was made to feel comfortable. Dr. Khosh is very good at what he does. I'm still healing but I'm confident of the results

After visiting and being evaluated by several doctors, I kept going back to Dr. Khosh. His tranquil spirit and professionalism were captivating. Thank you for a job well done and keeping me calm throughout the entire process. A special thanks to your staff Susan and Christine for all of their support as well. Hi highly recommend Dr. Khosh.

Upon hearing of the overwhelmingly positive experience a friend of mine had in choosing Dr. Khosh as her surgeon, I decided to make an appointment for my own septoplasty/rhinoplasty/turbinate reduction. Although I was slightly skeptical as the praise I had heard seemed a bit hyperbolic, all uncertainty dissipated after meeting the Doctor and his staff. My pre- and post-operative experience was excellent in terms of concerns adequately addressed prior to the surgery and mitigation of any bruising in the convalescent period. Despite my apparent predisposition to rather slower healing, a year after the surgery, my nose looks really pretty and my breathing entirely unobstructed! I highly recommend Dr. Khosh!
Courtney G.
AMAZING!!!!!! I had Dr Khosh perform lipo on my chin/neck and my result is unbelievable! Better than I could have expected! I met with a couple of surgeons and the second I met with Dr Khosh I knew he was the one I was going with. He was compassionate and explained every detail of what would take place during the surgery and what to expect during recovery. I even emailed a few times during recovery with various questions and he got right back to me asap which was really comforting! I honestly fully recommend Dr Khosh, he did an amazing job and is an amazing person.

i can finally breathe!! Dr. Khosh made the entire experience a breeze, it was truly a pleasure to be under his care. I am forever thankful and highly recommend him. Not only does his work speak for himself, but he has excellent bedside manner. His kindness and patience is above and beyond. He takes the time to answer to every question you have to help you understand the process while at the same time making you feel so comfortable. From the first consultation i knew i was in good hands. I am so pleased with the result and forever thankful.
