It is safe it is not digested and just injected in small doses. It is utilized in cosmetic procedures to paralyze the muscles in the face and smooth out wrinkles. It can also be used to treat people with cerebral palsy and patients who have tics and other spasms. It was first discovered to treat migraines when patients who used Botox to get rid of wrinkles reported that their migraines subsided. It is believed to treat migraines because Botox blocks neurotransmitters that bring signals to your brain, but it stops the chemicals before they get to the nerve endings in your neck and head. You are only eligible for Botox for headache treatment if you have more than 15 headaches a month and more than half of them are severe migraines.
