I have had successful treatments for headaches/migraines for every patient who has came with this complaint. One patient was an MD and she skipped her neurological appointment to see me. She ended up being headache-free for the first time since she was a little girl. Not all headaches are the same; if you feel like this is the worst headache in your life or feel like dying, please immediately go to the ER, especially if they are from trauma or injury.

It depends on the condition and the frequency of your acupuncture treatments. I've found it's more of an individual basis depending on how well that individual responds to acupuncture. Usually within 10 visits you get a really good idea and can begin to ween off visits down to 2x/mo or 1x/mo etc. Some conditions can be lifelong after so many treatments like stroke that has not been treated immediately.
