Surprising uses for Anti-Wrinkle Injections

02 May 2019

 

We all know and love the smooth, refreshed and youthful look that anti-wrinkle injections give us but it may come as a surprise to some of you that there are many other medical uses of this wonderful solution.

Migraine sufferers can derive great benefit from Botulinum Toxin, a solution more commonly used for anti-wrinkle injections. It is licensed in the UK for the treatment of chronic recurrent migraine. An experienced medical practitioner places small injections of the solution across the forehead, temples and scalp to gently relax the muscles. This can help to provide relief from these debilitating headaches.

Excessive sweating or Hyperhidrosis is an embarrassing and socially inhibiting condition that is extremely common amongst men and women alike. It can be triggered regardless of temperature by stressful or emotional situations, which is out of the sufferers control. Botulinum toxin helps eliminate or reduce perspiration in the underarm area by blocking the signal from the nerve endings to the sweat glands under the skin. This is not a permanent resolution to the problem as the nerve endings will start to function again but it will provide relief for 6-7 months from this distressing condition. This treatment can be a one-off for a special event but can also be used long term if required.

Bruxism is a medical term to describe jaw clenching or tooth grinding that eventually can result in headaches, jaw ache and earache as well as gradually wearing down the teeth. Aside from the use of mouth guards which are difficult for some to tolerate, Bruxism can be treated by administering painless injections of Botulinum Toxin which relax the Masseter muscles in the jaw, reducing the power of the clench and helping to diminish the action of grinding.

Your medical practitioners at Woodford Medical have years of experience in treating these conditions so if you want to find out more about any of these conditions please contact us for a consultation.

"Getting treatment for my embarrassing underarm sweating has changed my life. I can go out anywhere, I don't have to watch what I wear and I don't have to keep my arms glued to my side anymore. My clubbing days are back on the agenda!"
