Botox is a natural purified protein that may relax the facial muscles causing wrinkles or facial lines. It is a purified form of Botulinum toxin that creates a smooth, rejuvenated and more attractive appearance. Botox treatment for migraine headaches was first discovered in 2000. Since then, it is serving as a temporary treatment for migraine headaches and headaches.

Botox treatment for migraine headaches helps to paralyze or weaken the hyper stimulated muscles by controlling acetylcholine release, which brings about the transmission of nerves impulses at myoneural and synapses. Botox may also be used for minimizing the pain linked to the cervical dystonia, rectal fissures and achalasia. Botox is normally injected straight into the afflicted muscles.

Botox eliminates the headaches by reducing the muscle tension. It is believed that Botox may minimize headaches suppressing nerve cells transmission.
