Dysport® for Headaches and Migraines

While Dysport was originally developed to help reduce wrinkles, it is now being used successfully in the treatment of chronic migraines.

Chronic migraines are neurological diseases that can cause debilitating pain for sufferers. Some people who experience chronic migraines deal with intense bouts of throbbing pain that may hinder their lifestyle. The sensitivity to light and movement from migraines can make it impossible to take part in everyday activities. 

For migraine relief, Dysport is injected with a small needle throughout various areas of your face, head, and neck. This process is customized for each patient by catering to their pain relief needs. The injection sites are aimed at areas where the migraine originates or where the pain is most prominent for the sufferer. 

You may be wondering how Dysport works to relieve headaches. When you have a migraine, your body releases substances called neurotransmitters and molecules that are associated with pain. Dysport interferes with this transmission by blocking nerve impulses; it's typically where muscles meet nerves or other tissues in our bodies. When the drug is injected into these areas of concern (around the head/neck), it absorbs through the skin and allows for smoother movement which in turn prevents discomfort. 

Dysport injection effects last between 3 to 4 months and will require additional treatments to keep the migraine pain from returning. For those that deal with migraine pain on a regular basis this quick, effective, and non-invasive treatment can be life-changing. The procedure only takes a few minutes to complete and there is no wait time at the office afterward.

For many, the thought of having a needle injected into the head or face is scary but Dysport injections are very quick and tolerable. Some compare the feeling to a mosquito bite and the results of no migraine pain will outweigh any mild discomfort. After your appointment, you may notice mild redness or swelling which usually will only last a few hours. 

The best Dysport™ candidates are at least 18 years of age, in good general health, and are not allergic to eggs. Dysport is prepared with an egg base and could trigger a reaction in someone with an egg allergy.
