For those who suffer debilitating migraines it can take over and restrict your daily activities. The effects of anti-wrinkle injections is the latest advancement in effectively treating migraines. The treatment was originally discovered by doctors who were treating patients for cosmetic reasons and noticed a relief in migraine symptoms. This is now a recognised treatment performed by doctors and nurses internationally.
With the use of anti-wrinkle injections we can safely and effectively block the connection between the nerve and muscles that trigger migraines. By injecting into the muscle we cause it to stop contracting resulting in the relief of tension significantly reducing pain.
Common areas of treatment are:
Glabella - the area between the eyebrows

Frequently Asked Questions
WHAT IS THE TREATMENT FOR MIGRAINES?
Anti-wrinkle injections work by stopping the signal between the nerve and muscle. Anti-wrinkle injections are made from a purified protein that temporarily causes facial muscles to relax, and relieve tension and reduce the severity or completely stop migrains.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
This treatment works by injecting antiwrinkle into the muscles that causes the migraines to achieve relief or pain and tention and a reduction in future migrains with the added benifit of softening expression lines and wrinkles of the face.
WHAT ARE THE SIDE EFFECTS?
After the treatment is performed you may experience some mild erythema and swelling to the area. These symptoms do subside quickly.
WHAT HAPPENS DURING MY TREATMENT?
The nurse will clean the area to be treated, mark out the area where treatment is to take place and a fine needled syring is used to insert the wrinkle relaxer.
IS THE TREATMENT PAINFUL?
You may experience slight pressure or a ‘stinging’ sensation as the product is being injected. pain is such a personal and subjective thing. it all depends on your tolerance and on the treatment area.
WHAT CAN I EXPECT AFTER MY TREATMENT?
HOW MANY SESSION WILL I NEED?
You may need a top up around 3-4 months depending on the wrinkle relaxing product used and also depends on how quickly your body naturally breaks down the anti wrinkle or when you start getting tention or migrains.
WHAT PRECAUTIONS SHOULD I TAKE PRE AND POST CARE?
Pre treatment care: We recommend wearing a daily sunscreen prior to your treatment to protect your skin from the sun’s harmful rays. If your skin is peeling or sunburnt, we recommend that you wait a few weeks for the peeling or burn to subside. Please do not use any prescription Vitamin A for 1 week prior to your treatment.
Post Treatment: We recommend no harsh acids or scrubs for at least 5 days post treatment. Your dermal therapist will guide you on a recommended skin care program for your skin concerns. Sunscreen must be worn for a minimum of 14 days post treatment to prevent post-inflammatory hyper pigmentation.
We always recommend the daily use of SPF 30 sunscreen to prevent the skin becoming sun damaged. Please apply at least once every two hours when out in the sun.
