Botox for Migraines

There is no known linkage between Botox and loss of hair. Your primary physician/internist may be able to identify a nutritional, hormonal, or medical condition that may be leading to the hair loss.

Botox causing hair loss?

Not likely. In fact, there are some cases where Botox may help thinning hair. Please discuss your hair loss with your primary care doctor. Nutritional, hormonal, and other medical conditions can cause hair loss.

Botox for migraine

Botox injection for migraine does not cause hair loss. Hair loss may be happening for some other reasons.
