I went to Surgicare Aesthetics for my PRP treatment, specifically for my hair growth. Consultation was very thorough, explained the details and even answered additional questions I had specific to my needs. Entire treatment was done in a very gentle and caring way. The treatment was completed within 1 hour and I could continue with my day. Definitely recommend this clinic for thier professionalism.

I was nervous attending my first session with the clinic after my prior clinic closed down. The doctor made me feel at ease by offering me detailed information and continued patience in answering all of my questions. The treatments were undertaken with a particularly gentle hand and the results are honestly amazing- exactly what I wanted. I am so happy I found them. I would send anyone to surgicare- cannot fault them.

FAQs

Migraine treatment is the use of botulinum toxin injections to treat chronic migraines. This method is licensed for use when oral methods of pain relief fail to alleviate symptoms.

Our doctors will always carry out a thorough consultation before administering treatment including a full medical history and talking through alternative treatments. If you are suffering from 15 headaches per month or 8 migraines per month, you would be a suitable patient. Migraine symptoms include an intense headache on one side making it difficult to carry out everyday tasks. In addition,  nausea and vomiting are often associated with migraines as well as sensitivity to light and sound. Triggers of migraine can be hormonal, emotional, physical, dietary, environmental and medicinal. We recommend keeping a diary of your headaches to identify triggers and patterns.

Yes, anti-wrinkle treatment (Botox) is licensed for use in treatment of migraines and is also an approved NHS treatment for migraines, however excessive waiting times and specific referral guidelines makes accessibility very difficult.

The procedure takes 10 minutes for our doctors to administer and involves injection of the head and neck muscles. The number of muscles injected will be dictated by the type of your migraine and severity.

Treatment lasts for 12 weeks and we recommend having the treatment repeated at this point if it has been effective. Anti-wrinkle treatment for migraines has been shown to be successful from reducing the severity to complete remission of migraines for 85-90% of our patients. However, please note that success can vary from individual to individual.
