No: I have not heard of a need to cut hair for these injections. Take care.

Recent article in PRS Journal on location of major and minor trigger points for migranes. Use of Botox injection in the trigger areas can be very successful. I also note injection of PIT (buffered glucose solutions)solution instead of Botox offers relief in most cases
