I have been receiving Limelight Laser treatments for uneven pigment and redness including veins on my nose and chin. The results are great! I still have wrinkles getting worse by the month it seems, so I will be getting a mild first treatment of Botox in my forehead, crows feet, and possibly... READ MORE

After 40 years of dealing with migraines thru different methods, and was finally worn out from drugs masking effects and putting me in a continual fog, went to see Dr. Khorsandi on cost of Botox, he introduced us to migraine decompression surgery. His experience had shown that there is no reason... READ MORE

I tried botox as a last result for chronic migraines. The day after the botox treatment I had a migraine for 2 days all day long, along with a stiff neck. The stiff neck continued for three days with no relief except for taking a muscle relaxant at night but then I would wake up still with a... READ MORE

I start Botox injections tomorrow morning. I am 49 years old, and have had migraines since I was 20 years old. I feel as if I've tried everything possible to alleviate these monsters. I get them 3 - 4 days per week. It is rare that a migraine lasts for just a few hours or even half a day. ... READ MORE

I had a great experience, lots of shots, wasn't very painful, but I disliked the sound of the needles puncturing the skin, but otherwise it went very quickly and I was fine after and went about my day normally. I am so happy, I am doing great, i've had a few Migraines but they were not as bad... READ MORE

This was the second time I received the botox TX for migraines. The first time was in 2009 when it wasn't approved yet. It was a better experience and seemed to help somewhat. I got a few less migraines and the majority of the botox was in my face and traps along my back. I decided to try... READ MORE

I was given approx 100 units of Botox for treatment of chronic migraines. I was not warned in advance about any potential long term side effects. Within 24 hours I had the worst headache of my life. I thought I was literally going to die. The headache decreased a small amount daily but in crept... READ MORE

Working in operating theatres with a constant migraine is like a hamster running backwards on a wheel - concentration & mood was not at its best essential for the job I do and ended up having sick days when the floor was literally spinning beneath me. Within a couple of days there was no pain... READ MORE

I am hoping that this review (and all updates that follow) will give help to someone. That is my only motivation for putting my story "out there" in the virtual world. Please feel free to comment or ask any questions and I will be more than happy to reply. I NEVER want anyone to go through what... READ MORE

Before I got the botox I read every review from good to bad.. I was at my wits end with having migraines every three to five days.. I'm a 3rd grade teacher so this was unacceptable... I was at the emergency room once every month... Fast forward to the procedure.. I got 31 injections in my... READ MORE

I have had migraines since I was 11 years old. Nothing has worked except Imitrex which takes it away for 1 day and then comes right back! I have had NO relief from my pulsating, throbbing headache which lasts up to 6 days each time. I get an average of 2 a month. When I don't have a migraine I... READ MORE

I tried absolutely everything to stop the migraines. Every medication, I changed my diet, I even had a shot to inject myself with if the nausea was too much. (Which was every time) two years ago today I had a botox procedure and my very last migraine was the day before the procedure. I have been... READ MORE

After unsuccessfully treating my extremely frequent migraines with all first line and second line medications, my neurologist suggested Botox. I had my first round of treatment in 2009, I believe, and kept it up every 3 months until my insurance ran out when I had to leave my job (due to... READ MORE

Have been getting Botox now for 1 year approx. going every 3 months and I can say it took some time but every time it gets better and better so its no doubt worth it. I would like to have decompression surgery but at this time my insurance doesn't cover it. So if your thinking about it, try it... READ MORE

Severe migraines... Have been taking Sumavel DosePro injections along with other pain medications at night for migraine prevention. I had a spinal tap and myalagram in 2008. After this test the attending physician did not elevate my head as I requested before the test. I also asked the surgical... READ MORE

I have been getting Botox to manage migraine for about 2 years. Because the main ophthalmology surgeon is usually extremely busy twice I have seen the doctor that he taught.
