My migraines started at age 13. I have suffered many years of severe headaches and migraines. The headaches were a daily things for me. It became very wearing on me. It was difficult to concentrate or focus on anything. I have seen many doctors for this with no avail. I was put on many... READ MORE

NO MORE HEADACHES! Also, my forehead looks smoother and tighter. I'm only 22 so I didn't really have any wrinkles yet, but I squint/furrow my brow constantly and it was giving me me tension headaches. It also was surely going to give me wrinkles prematurely. My older sister actually suggested... READ MORE

I went to many surgeons in the area. I am only 32 and had some mild creasing between my forehead, and recurring headaches due to frowning (I am near sighted, and squinting/frowning while driving would leave me with terrible tension headaches). The surgeons I visited were pushy about the amount... 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 thought I was literally going to die. The headache decreased a small amount daily but in crept... READ MORE

(If nothing else, please read the last paragraph) I had to write my own review because I feel like only positive feedback gets shared on the Botox issue. In my opinion, for the thousands or millions of migraine sufferers who DON'T have any success with Botox, they simply move on instead of... READ MORE
