There is often a certain stigma surrounding anti-wrinkle injections and the type of people that have these particular treatments. Anti-wrinkle treatments have far too often received bad press but done well by a well established practitioner, should leave you looking refreshed and natural.
What a lot of people don’t know is that the anti wrinkle product (Botulinum Toxin) can also be used for many medical purposes, when used with advanced techniques performed by an experienced doctor. You’re probably thinking, how and what can anti-wrinkle injections help with medically. Well, let’s discuss!
The botulinum toxin can be used to eliminate excessive sweating. How you may wonder? The treatment works by blocking the nerves responsible for activating your sweat glands. When these nerves are unable to signal to your sweat glands, the sweating stops. The injection will only be effective in the area that has been treated, it isn’t a whole body fix.
Similarly, the toxin can also help to prevent chronic migraines and help reduce symptoms such as nausea, vomiting and sensitivity to light, sound and smell.
The treatment involves the toxin being injected into areas involved in the headache and/or migraine pain. It is placed in such a way that it blocks the release of chemicals which are involved in the pain transmission and affects the nerve endings from sending these pain signals. It’s worth noting that this procedure doesn’t work 100% of the time, but it has been a life changing treatment for so many.
This is also known as abnormal neck muscle spasms. In some cases, botulinum toxin is used to help ease neck pain. The muscle contractions that are associated with Cervical Dystonia are thought to be caused by nerve signals sent from the brain to the affected muscles, telling them to contract or spasm.
The treatment involves injecting botulinum toxin, to prevent and block the nerves from sending messages to the muscles. As a result of this treatment, the muscle contractions should reduce.
