Are you living with debilitating headaches or migraines that cause throbbing pain, nausea, vomiting, or sensitivity to light and sound? If so, you may benefit from Xeomin injections for headaches and migraines. This treatment is a great option for those who have not found relief from other possible solutions.
Xeomin is a purified form of botulinum toxin type A that works to remedy headaches by blocking the release of chemicals involved in pain transmission. This treatment is approved to treat headaches and migraines in individuals who have a history of migraine headaches and have headaches 15 days or more a month that each last 4 hours or longer.
If you are unsure if you are a candidate for Xeomin, we encourage you to schedule a consultation appointment with Dr. Skura. She will speak with you regarding the severity and frequency of your headaches and migraines, as well as discuss any other treatment options you have tried to determine if Xeomin is right for you.
Xeomin treatments for headaches are quick and can usually be completed in about 15-30 minutes. To begin, the treatment area will be cleaned. Several injections of Xeomin will be given to areas in the face, head, and neck where you experience headaches or migraine pain.
It can take multiple treatment sessions and several weeks before migraine relief is noticed. Some patients may also be able to discontinue injections without frequent headaches returning, while others may need regular treatments to keep migraines under control.
Following treatment, there is no downtime required, and you are welcome to drive yourself home. The areas injected may feel tender or bruised for the first few days. The benefits of treatment will usually develop a week or two after injections.
In order to ensure that Xeomin has completely absorbed into the injected areas, it is advised that you avoid vigorous exercise, massages and extreme heat, hair washing, and skin cleansing in the areas injected for at least 24 hours after treatment.
If you are tired of suffering from chronic headaches or migraines and have not found relief with other treatments, Xeomin may be right for you. To learn more about this treatment option, contact Art Aesthetica today to book a consultation appointment with Dr. Skura.
