Thanks to magazines and journals, social media, and talk shows, Anti Wrinkle has been a household name in the cosmetic aesthetic industry. However, Anti Wrinkle is not only approved for cosmetic use  only but it has been used for medical treatments for a long time. 

For several years, Botulinum toxin, a protein derived from bacteria, has been used therapeutically in the medical field. Specifically, Botulinum toxin type A has the ability to block nerve impulses to decrease the excessive activities in the muscles or glandular region. When injected accordingly, it successfully minimizes the frequency of urination of an overactive bladder, shrinks the hyperactive sweat glands that causes severe underarm sweating (hyperhidrosis), treats abnormal spasms of the eyelid (blepharospasms), and alleviates migraines. 


The International Headache Society defines chronic migraine as more than 15 days of headache per month over a 3-month period.  It is also determined if there more than 8 of the headache days are severe and long-lasting or “migrainous” without any medication overuse.

Migraine headaches are different from normal headaches because of the extreme throbbing pain. It is often called “sick headaches” because the person experiences nausea and extreme sensitivity to light and sound. Because of this, migraine headaches can affect family life, careers, and the person’s general psyche.

So how do the injections reduce migraines? Anti Wrinkle injections reduce the contractions in the head and helps greatly to the onset of the headaches. The relaxed muscles blunts headache symptoms. Approximately 31 regulated doses of injections are applied to 7 specific areas of the head and neck and are administered 12 weeks apart. Although Anti Wrinkle only offers temporary relief and the patient needs to return for another session, it significantly brings down headaches for a period of 3 to 6 months. 


Anti Wrinkle side effects are rare. However, if not properly injected, it can potentially cause botulism, a struggle in swallowing and breathing difficulties. It is for these reasons that a Anti Wrinkle treatment should only be done by an expert.
