Treatment of migraine with Botox 

Migraine treatment often relies on taking medication to reduce the pain and intensity of a migraine attack but the best treatment is treatment to PREVENT attacks occurring in the first place and BOTOX injections have been clinically proven to reduce the frequency of migraine headaches.

The National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) has approved the use of Botox to treat migraine.

NICE guidance : botulinum toxin in migraine

One of Paul’s published articles on the subject


Paul says ”  I suffer from migraine, its had a huge effect on my life and is debilitating. I have found Botulinum toxin really helpful at reducing the severity and number of headaches. Getting NHS treatment is difficult and you have to take some drugs with fairly unpleasant side effects. Botulinum toxin has minimal side effects”

Botox injections have been licensed for prevention of chronic migraine. This treatment reduces migraines by 50% in 70% of suffers with chronic migraine. (This means a headache 15 days per month) .

The revolutionary migraine treatment requires precise injections around the head and neck. In some cases migraine treatment MAY be available on the NHS but many patients prefer to seek private treatment due to the profound effect it has on their quality of life.

Treatment costs are around £550 for a first treatment including a consultation and £450 for subsequent treatments.

Paul has built an expertise in migraine and sees regular patients from all areas of London such as Belgravia, Clapham, Battersea, Chelsea and other parts of west London, Marylebone, Mayfair, Bloomsbury, Canary Wharf, Isle of Dogs, and Greenwich
