Botox Migraines


Greater Manchester - Manchester, Greater - England

GREATER MANCHESTER, England - April 3, 2014 - PRLog -- “Sometimes 6 or 7 injections of botox ( are all that are needed to keep those migraines at bay” explains Dr Vik at Dermaskin Manchester ( “It has only been licensed for use in the NHS in the last couple of years but has been approved by drug watchdogs since 2010”

Most patients would need to meet the criteria of having ‘chronic migraines’ and three types of tablets would have to be used before consideration of NHS funding. “As a GP I have treated several patients with tablets, and these have worked wonderfully, but would strongly consider ‘magnetic therapy’ or botox in treatment resistant migraines” explains Dr Vik,

Walk-in clientele makes up the large majority of patients treated with botox for migraines in Manchester but they also accept GP referrals. “Hopefully one day we will be able to accept NHS funding directly to cover the cost of the private patients” he adds

With prices ( starting at £200, almost £150 less than the estimated cost on the NHS it is unsurprising that people are seeking private measures to use the toxin to treat their debilitating migraines.
