A recent study published in Archives of Dermatology supports the conclusion that Botox can treat migraines. According to the researchers, Botox injections “at doses appropriate for cosmetic purposes may be sufficient to prevent migraine attacks.”

One co-author of the study, Rami Burstein tells Bloomberg news: “[Botox] may block the signals in sensory nerves located on the outside of the head.”
