Wrinkle Relaxer in Scalp for Headaches, Migraines and Hyperhidrosis

05 Dec 2017

Many people do not realise that wrinkle relaxing injections can be used for more than simply reducing wrinkles. Premium Wrinkle Relaxers may reduce headaches, migraines and hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating). Please note that due to regulations we are not able to mention the names of products as they are Schedule 4 drugs.

In the below video Dr Murray, one of Australia’s top injectors is doing injections in the scalp as Vicki has been suffering from migraines.  Wrinkle relaxers may be injected into the scalp to reduce excessive sweating.  Injecting in the scalp to reduce sweating has become increasingly popular in the US recently to prolong the time between blow dry appointments.


Does Wrinkle Relaxer Reduce Migraines?

Allergan, a supplier of wrinkle relaxer injections (the supplier we use for premium injectable), presented 2 studies to the FDA in 2010 showing an improvement in patients who suffered from chronic migraines.  Wrinkle relaxers help migraine sufferers by reducing abnormal muscle contractions.   The Pharmaceutical Benefits Scheme added wrinkle relaxer injections to the list of subsidised treatments for chronic migraine sufferers in 2014, the Australian Medical Association Press Release can be seen here.

Does Wrinkle Relaxer Reduce Excessive Sweating?

Wrinkle Relaxing Injections block the connection between the nerve and local sweat gland causing a reducing sweating in the area that is injected.  It is important to note that the reduced sweating will only be in the area that is injected.  More information about wrinkle relaxers as a treatment to reduce sweating can he found here.
