      i get them every 3 months! it’s not the best feeling in the world to be poked with all those needles, but it’s totally manageable. i have never had any issues with side effects or anything. i will warn you, the first month or two they might not really help at all, because the more you get it, the more it builds up in your system and works better. but once you start consistently getting them, it WILL work wonders. it has helped my migraines tremendously. and if it’s helping you, but not quite enough, you can always add on a pill to help. i take qulipta along with the botox injections. i wish you luck on this journey ♥︎

      My Mum has had these and she didn't see any difference, she's now had to have spinal injections in hopes this helps.

      My best friend gets it done every 3 months...it helps her! It is a little painful at the time but afterward it is helpful. She has been doing it for years.

Many people have shared their experiences with Botox for migraine treatment. Some found that it reduced the frequency and severity of their migraines, but it can take up to three treatments to see significant benefits. The injections can be painful and effects may wear off about two weeks before the next treatment. Some people also experienced a decrease in pain levels, but not all found it life-changing. It's also noted that the procedure can cause some discomfort, especially in areas like the base of the skull and above the ears.
