A migraine is a particularly debilitating headache, which many of us experience as a severe throbbing pain across one side of the head, often paired with numerous other nasty symptoms. These can include: nausea, vomiting and oversensitivity to light and sound. Unfortunately, this is a common condition, with the frequency of each migraine varying from person to person. While one person might experience migraines weekly, others can go months and years between episodes with a check up after two weeks and a free top up if the practitioner feels necessary.
Among other treatments, anti-wrinkle injections are known to have a positive effect when used to treat chronic migraines; it is believed this is achieved by helping to relax the tension in the muscles, and is also effective for treating chronic tension headaches.
The most common areas treated for migraines are the frown line area and the forehead. In some cases, temporal muscles are treated for further relief.
