Kim Zolciak,, reality star from Bravo's "The Real Housewives of Atlanta" and "Don't be Tardy" recently took a turn on ABC's "Dancing with the Stars", and garnered headlines when she told her Instagram followers that she had received a Botox treatment before appearing on the show.
However, she claims that her botox treatments are not just about vanity. Zolciak finds that her Botox treatments really help with her migraines. "On a more serious note, it does help with my migraines. I've got it since I was 23 and so I’m at the 90 day mark—if I go past that, I end up in the bed with the migraines. I have to hurry up and get it but it works."
Botox has been FDA approved as a treatment for migraines since 2010. To treat chronic migraines, expect to receive treatments every 12 weeks or so. In each treatment you may receive up to 31 injections in specific locations around the head and neck to help alleviate the pain and nausea that's sometimes associated with migraines.
Zolciak continued to espouse the virtues of Botox, beyond the migraines as well. "I'm all for making yourself feel good. If you want to do it to feel good about yourself, do it. Why lie? Why hide? We only go around one time so enjoy it."
