Do anti-wrinkle injections for migraines really work? How effective are they? How do they work?

The short answer is: “it depends”. There are different types of migraines with different causes. Anti-wrinkle injections work by causing muscles to relax: if your migraine or headache is caused by muscular tension, injections may help. The doses are larger than those used for facial wrinkles, and should only be administered by highly trained neurologist.
