Botox and Headaches

Can you get a Headache After Botox?

There are several neuromodulators out on the market today, and these include Botox, Dysport, Xeomin, and Jeuveau.  One of the most common side effects of neuromodulators includes a mild headache. This headache is due to the frontalis, or forehead muscle being injected too deep and bouncing off onto bone. After several years of research, it was known that frontalis, or forehead muscle injections could be injected more superficially and still have a great effect against strong muscle activity. Botox works by permeating through the muscle blocking the release of Acetylcholine Esterase, which stops muscle contractions.

As Dr. Rajani reviews, the best ways to prevent a Botox headache include:

Technique and dosing: Injecting superficially is considered safe and an effective way to deliver Botox while still targeting the muscle.   

Most neuromodulators last between 2 to 6 months.  The way in which our bodies react to certain medications even Botox can vary during that time frame.  There is no real answer on how to Botox stops headaches, but Botox is a great way to stop the muscle movement that leads to contraction muscles that causes a migraine. It can be injected into the frown, forehead, scalp, temporalis, and masseter or jawline areas to help with headaches.
