Migraine Prophylaxis


Chronic migraine headaches is a chronic medical condition that affects a big sector of our community. If you experience chronic migraines, this can have a negative influence on your quality of life, social interaction, resulting in missing days of work, general anxiety, and or depression.

If you are experiencing newly diagnosed headaches, you need to consult your primary care physician or see a neurologist for an appropriate diagnosis. Once Diagnosed with a chronic migraine condition, you can start on medications to help with Pain Severity. This can include and not limited to Tylenol , NSAIDS (eg: Naproxen, Aleve, Advil, Tylenol) and Triptans Family eg: Maxalt and Sumatriptan. In some cases, even stronger medications like narcotics are being used to control more severe migraine attacks.


The other route of treatment options is prophylactic medications, not to help so much with the Migraine Severity but to help more with migraine frequency. These medications include and are not limited to beta blockers (eg: Propranolol), Amitriptyline, Gabapentin, Lyrica…

Even though some patients respond very well to the above-mentioned treatments, especially if combined, many others experience very minimal help if any. We always encourage our clients to jot down and create a “headaches diary” to mark when the migraine attack starts, how many days it last, and how severe it is.
If you find that your “migraine free days” are equal to or less than 15 days a month, after trying the other mentioned options, this means you are a good candidate for Botox® Injection.

If you have a private insurance plan, you may be entitled to insurance coverage for the Botox® Medication.

Please contact our office for more details, including filling out your insurance form if needed.


First you need to have a consultation with one of our experts to make sure you are a good candidate.

Once approved for the procedure, you will be given instructions on how to prepare for it.

With your primary care provider’s approval, you need to stop any blood thinner or anti-inflammatories eg: Advil, Aleve, Motrin, and or Naproxen for 10 days. You will need to avoid wearing make up on the day of the procedure and for 48hrs thereafter.

At Revive Medical Spa, we use a strong medical grade topical numbing cream that makes the whole experience very tolerable and comfortable.
After the Vampire Facial ®, you can expect mild redness for your face for about 24-48 hrs.

We will recommend the right skincare products to use at home which will help with any downtime or discomfort after the procedure.
Our clients usually start to feel the tightness on their skin shortly after the procedure. The PRP injection stimulates collagen and elastin and new blood vessels, that usually takes 1-3 months to be formed.

Having that said, you will see continuous improvement from the time you get the Vampire Facial ® done and going forward with the maximum results seen at 1-3 months after procedure.

Like any other conditions in our bodies, maintenance is the key to keep your new collagen and elastin.

We recommend a series of 3 sessions 4-6 weeks apart to maintain results and to continue to see your glowing, shinny and healthy looking skin, we recommend a session every 3-6 months as a maintenance after you finish your original 3 sessions.
