According to an article in Friday's Wall Street Journal,*,** a relatively simple cosmetic procedure to eliminate wrinkles and frown lines had 31 of 39 patients reporting a comcomitant partial to total relief of migraines. Apparently, botox injections can have the same effect. Anybody know anything about this and, particularly, if effect might be useful for clusters?
