DID YOU KNOW?
Health Canada has approved the use of Botox™ for chronic migraines and axillary hyperhidrosis, amongst other conditions, and therefore, most often this treatment is covered by third party insurers (private drug plans). You will have to enquire with your insurance company.
If you have any of these problems, and require more information, please email us at email@example.com. We would love to help you get the treatment you require.
CHRONIC MIGRAINE MEANS LIVING WITH:
15 or more headache days each month
8 or more migraine-like headaches for 3 or more months
WHAT TO EXPECT?
HOW DOES IT WORK?
It prevents headaches and migraines before they even start. BOTOX™ prevents on average 8 or 9 headache days and migraine/probable migraine days a month (vs 6 to 7 for placebo) at 24 weeks.
WHAT IS THE TREATMENT LIKE?
The drug is injected into 7 different areas of the scalp. The procedure takes approximately 45mins and is relatively painless.
HOW MUCH DOES IT COST?
The procedure fee is $250. It will also require the purchase of 200u of Botox, which can be purchased from us or a pharmacy.
HOW OFTEN WILL I NEED TREATMENT?
The first and second treatment should be approximately 12 weeks apart.
WHEN DO I SEE RESULTS?
A significant reduction in headache days occurs after the first treatment, as early as four weeks.
IS BOTOX TREATMENT RIGHT FOR YOU?
Botox injection treatment for hyperhidrosis is currently covered under your provincial healthcare plan.
