Best Botox in Birmingham! Dr. Farmah was a professional and very warm and welcoming. He also did fillers with her for nasal labial folds and best lip injections. What a great experience!!!

Dr. Farmah was so thorough, informative, and reassuring. This was my first Botox treatment ever performed on myself, and I used it as more of a preventative method. I started developing a horizontal line across my forehead and worried that it would become more permanent if not targeted right away by a professional. He makes it sound and look so easy. Very professional atmosphere and exceptional customer service. I highly recommend him!

I had few sessions of Micro-needling with Dr. Farmah there. Very happy with my results! The aestheticians are super professionals and kind, the treatment is relaxing and I love to go to this clinic as my break time from work and stress. A little me time once a month for relaxation and beauty. Highly recommend!

Highly recommend! I'm from Bromsgrove, and it is worth the drive! Dr. Farmah truly knows what he is doing. I was nervous because any alteration to the face is scary. I am young and have always had dark circles. No creams, diet, or products helped. I was impressed by how natural his patients looked. I am young, so I did not want the “filler” look. Dr. Farmah did a great evaluation, and did not push me to get the treatment. I truly think he did everything right: deep fillers, microcannula, Restylane. I had very little bruising and swelling, and I went out to dinner right after treatment. Overall, I would absolutely do this treatment with Dr. Farmah again. I look rested and refreshed, and it looks natural! Thank you, Dr. Farmah!

I recently came to see Dr. Farmah after a friend had recommended me for filler. I have had a hard time finding a decent injector around Birmingham and was nervous at first. But my experience here was fantastic. My results came out better than I had expected and required less product than I had been quoted by others. Dr. Farmah was very professional and patient and did an excellent job of explaining my options between Restylane and Juvederm. I highly recommend this place to anyone interested in botox & Fillers! I wouldn't trust anyone else with my face.

Alleviate Constant Painful Headaches

Why Chronic Migraines are a Major Concern for Many People

Migraines are different from “the normal everyday headache.” Almost everyone has experienced such headaches at some point in their life and often report them as being unpleasant. On the other hand, migraines are much more intense headaches that often come with nausea, vomiting, extreme fatigue, sensitivity to light and sound, and other severe symptoms.Migraines are termed as chronic when they exceed 15 headache days a month, with at least 8 days of having headaches with migraine features for more than 3 months. Physical activity only heightens the symptoms, which means most people are forced to lie down during a migraine episode. Therefore, if you are getting painful headaches for half of each month, it’s probably taking a toll on your life. Complaints from many of our patients range from lost days of work or school to the interference of precious time with friends and family.Yet, statistics show that over 6 million people suffer from migraine in the UK. This makes chronic migraines a serious concern that has to be dealt with aggressively.

Chronic Migraines Frequently Asked Questions

Common Symptoms of Chronic Migraines to Watch out for

Below are some of the most common chronic migraine symptoms.

● Throbbing, pulsating sensation in the sides of the head
● Nausea and vomiting
● Dizziness and sudden fatigue
● Sensitivity to light, sound or smells
● Symptoms made worse by physical activity

Treatment Options for Chronic Migraines?

Your treatment choices depend on the frequency and severity of your migraine headaches. You also need to take into consideration your medical history and the possible causes behind the migraine attacks.

1. There are all kinds of migraine medication on the market. Some are pain-relieving, while others are preventive. These medications are taken regularly to reduce the severity or frequency of migraines.

2. Make lifestyle changes such as adopting relaxation techniques or a good sleeping routine to deal with the potential triggers of migraines such as stress and anxiety.

3. Botox has become a popular, effective and safe alternative for treating chronic migraine.

Benefits of Treating Chronic Migraines using Botox?

Botox was approved by UK’s MHRA as a treatment for chronic migraine headaches back in 2010. Multiple clinical trials show that Botox can offer a 50% reduction in the number of chronic migraines among most individuals who undergo the treatment. Even suffering just half fewer attacks can really improve the quality of one’s life. As a result, Botox treatments can help people feel and function better with fewer missed days of work.

Some patients have gladly found that it even eliminates the need for medication. Also, Botox for migraines can have the same aesthetic effect as cosmetic Botox, killing two birds with one stone for people who may desire its anti-ageing effects.

It’s important to note that it takes time to produce these results, with many patients reporting the 50% reduction in migraine days on their second or third course of treatment.

How Does the Botox Treatment for Chronic Migraines Work?

Botox is concentrated on carefully mapped out injection sites on the head, focusing on the areas where pain occurs. It works by blocking the nerve terminals that transmit pain around your head and neck area. In most instances, it takes two weeks for the Botox to work, though some patients may start to feel relief from chronic migraines sooner than that.

After the treatment, Botox is slowly metabolised in the body, so for it to remain effective, patients have to get another treatment every three or four months.

Botox is also well-tolerated by most people and is considered a trusted and safe treatment option for chronic migraines. The most common side effect from the Botox shots is a sore neck or slight bruising or redness on the injection site, but these often clear quickly.

That being said, as with any medical procedure, everybody is different and will respond to treatment differently. Therefore it's best to do a healthy amount of research and thoroughly talk to your doctor about your body and medical history before making a decision.

Am I an Ideal Candidate for Botox?

● Botox is typically limited to people who have chronic migraines (15 or more migraine headaches per month.)
● At least 8 days need to involve migraines that last at least 4 hours each.
● Experienced chronic migraines for minimum 3 months
● Are at least 18 years old
● Botox hasn’t been approved for other types of headaches, such as cluster headaches.

Where Can I get Botox Treatment for My Migraines

Here at Dr Aesthetica, we suggest using Botox to treat chronic migraines. We used very fine needles to administer the injections, and our resident doctor has extensive experience in carrying out this procedure. The pain associated with the injections is mild and no local anaesthetic is required. We can also administer a numbing cream to ease any discomfort. Don’t suffer in silence anymore! Talk to us today about your chronic migraines.
