Botox for headaches and migraines?

botox for migraine headache migreeni päänsärky

In a collaboration with Ebeling dentists
/ treatment gifted


I’ll never forget my first migraine. I puked, suffered the worst headache I’ve ever experienced and felt horrible for three days straight. These were my migraines as a child.

As I got older, my migraines turned less severe. They usually lasted only for a day. But even that one day was torture. The next day after my migraine I always felt reborn and amazing. Just because the contrast between being in migraine versus feeling normal was huge.

Anyone who’s experienced migraines probably gets what I’m talking about.

Botox for migraine and headache

I’m very lucky, because nowadays my migraines are very mild. I don’t know what has happened, but I’m not complaining. I only get headache that is nowhere near as bad as it could be. It’s been several years since I last had a proper migraine (though the possibility and fear of having one never really leaves you).

As you might know, I take botox for bruxism and it’s been a tremendous help. Bruxism can also cause headaches and it’s weird, how it shows up in different parts of the body – not only the jaw area.

Headaches are still something I get occasionally. I also sometimes get this migraine-like pain around my eyes, so I was eager to try botox. Another big thing is that I frown a lot. I do it constantly. I also frown when it’s sunny or bright outside. Frowning can cause headache too. Obviously it also causes wrinkles and can make you look a bit angry. Some take botox just for this reason and I understand that.

Lifting your eyebrows a lot can also cause headaches and horizontal lines on the forehead.

On my latest appointment my dentist Sakari Ebeling injected botox on my jaw, temples (those are the ‘regular areas’), neck and between my brows. Where the botox is injected is always personal so these areas and the amount vary depending on the person.

My dentist Sakari Ebeling said this about treating migraine with botox:

“We’ve got good results with botulin toxin for patients that suffer from migraine. The migraine episodes are milder, they are less frequent and they can even stay away. Patients have also received good results for bruxism or tension headaches. When treating migraine, the typical areas which are injected are the muscles on the temples, forehead, between brows and muscles on the base of the skull. It must be taken into account though, that the results vary and not everyone necessary get the help they hope to get.”


Before & after botox for frown lines

botox for frown lines before and after

I noticed a change in my frown lines about a week after taking botox. I couldn’t frown as hard as I used to. I was shocked to see how well it has worked and these photos also explain why botox in the jaw works so well. The muscles simply can’t work as hard as they used to, therefore you can’t clench your teeth together as much and therefore there is less pain and problems.


How long does the effect last?

The time between my appointments this time was nine months. That’s a long time, because there’s no promise as to how long the effect lasts. It’s usually around 3-6 months. The results tend to get better with second appointment, since the symptoms have not gotten as bad as before. At least in my experience that has happened, because on my first time, the result lasted for 4 months, but after that it’s been 6-9 months. I can’t say if I’ve seen some long term improvement, but it sure feels like that.

As always, I’m happy with my results. If you want to read more about my experience with taking botox for bruxism, I recommend reading my earlier posts (here and here). My dentist also answered some questions there!

If you would like to try botulin treatment, I got a discount for you. When taking the treatment for bruxism (399€), extra areas are 50€/per area (normally 100€). You can take it for example on your forehead, on your frown lines or back of the skull. For aesthetic botulin treatment only, you can get it for 99€ per area (normally 199€). You can only use the discount once.

Have you tried botox for either bruxism or frown lines?

My entire makeup collection 2020

my makeup collection


272 products. That’s my entire makeup collection, laid out on the floor.

22 eyeshadow palettes.

95 base products, containing all the primers, foundations, powders, concealers, blushes, bronzers and highlights I have.

62 lip products.

… and more.

I realize that’s a lot of products for one person to use, but on the other hand, I’m a beauty blogger and makeup is my work. There’s also the collection part of it. Some people collect bags or shoes, I collect makeup. Many of the products have personal value to me and some I actually keep only for the sentimental value. And brands also send me pr-samples, so I haven’t bought everything myself.

I know that seeing all this makeup is crazy to some people, but I think I have a pretty good idea of what I own. I can tell you how these products work and in which situations I would wear them. Also, some of these products are years old, so my collection has grown slowly. Powder products, for example, tend to stay in good shape even after the promised expiration date.

I have showed my makeup vanity and how I organize my makeup in this post!

My entire makeup collection

But obviously, seeing all these products altogether like this was a bit of a shock to me too. It was the perfect opportunity to also organize and get rid of some stuff. I actually go through my collection quite often and I’m always gifting my friends and family with the products I no longer use or need. I showed you the “away” pile too at the end of this post. After those products I was left with about 250 products.

I wrote down all the products I have in excel and so I wanted to share the list here as well. I kept this post short, focusing on just showing my collection, but I did add links to some blog posts regarding the products.

I was inspired to do this post when I saw Fiia’s makeup stash. So thank you @makeupmafioso for the inspiration!

And finally, here is what I ended up removing from my collection: 20 products total.


There are just a few palettes I no longer use, some lip products and a dried out gel liner. The face contour kit I wanted to throw out, because I have a pretty similar one from Lily Lolo. I love those Clarins blushes (and kept all the other shades), but I don’t really use the lightest colors. Then there’s a few makeup pens I never use, a matte lipstick I don’t use and some old lipsticks. Oh – and the cream highlight I know will be perfect for my sister!
