Botox against migraine

Botox against migraine at KNAP Institute

Migraine can have a huge impact on your life. Complaints such as nausea and hypersensitivity to sound and light are accompanied by severe headaches. Recognizable? You may be one of the more than 3 million people in the Netherlands who suffer from this condition. In many cases the pain is only partially controlled with painkillers, while migraine can be treated well with botulinum toxin. As many as 75% of the patients at KNAP Institute have indicated that they are experiencing improvement after the botox treatment for migraine.

About our treatment

Causes and symptoms of migraine

Unfortunately, migraine is not yet sufficiently recognized as a disease, while the complaints have a huge impact. Although the symptoms vary from person to person, many people can not wait until they switch over again in a dark room during a migraine attack. An attack often takes hours, but sometimes also days. In addition to the severe headache, other symptoms are difficult to speak, vision loss (blind spots), flash or vomiting.

There are several factors that can cause a migraine attack. Stimuli from outside, such as light or sound, or sensitivity to certain substances, stress or the use of hormonal contraception may be a cause. When the diagnosis of migraine is made, an effective approach is possible. At KNAP Institute, the symptoms of tension headache and migraine are competently treated with a targeted botox treatment.

Treatment of migraine

Although migraine is seen as one of the most debilitating chronic diseases, a good solution is offered in few cases. Often different medications are prescribed by general practitioners who do not have the desired effect. Botox is still a virtually new and unknown treatment for migraine and (tension) headaches, but has already proven its effectiveness. At essential points, the botox ensures that the muscles relax. The migraine itself is therefore not about, but the number of attacks is considerably less and the intensity of the migraine becomes less intense.


The costs of a botox treatment for migraine differ per patient. However, you do not want to face unexpectedly high costs. That is why we discuss in advance with you how the treatment works and what costs are involved. This way you know exactly where you stand. Naturally, your budget will be taken into account as much as possible. Unfortunately, a botox treatment is not eligible for reimbursement via your health insurer.


You notice the effect of treatment with botox against migraine after about one week and last for about four months. During that period you will notice that attacks are greatly reduced. In some cases you can even stop taking the medication prescribed by your family doctor or specialist. If the symptoms increase again, you can undergo a new botox treatment.
