How Can Anti-wrinkle Help with Migraines

There are many misconceptions about Anti-wrinkle Injections around and how it can be used. CoLaz is here to offer our expertise and guide you through both the cosmetic and non-cosmetic uses of the injection. Botulinum toxin type A; better known to all as the brand Anti-wrinkle Injections®, has been popular for its cosmetic improvement properties  ever since it was first FDA approved back in 2002 for such use. The toxin blocks the nerve signal transmissions of specific facial muscles, causing them to be less active and effectively reducing the appearance of Anti-wrinkle and fine lines. Lesser known perhaps,are the medical properties of Anti-wrinkle for chronic migraine prevention.

Migraines

Migraines are a complex medical condition, being so much more than just a mere headache for the sufferer. Migraine attacks can cause severe pulsating pain and last from hours up to a few days at a time.

Symptoms include increased sensitivity to light and sound, as well as nausea and vomiting. The pain can be disabling, and people who experience them can be crippled by chronic migraines for over 14 days every month.

As well as affecting health, migraines can affect family, work and a person’s social life too. Anti-wrinkle Injection is the first and only FDA-approved preventative treatment available for chronic migraines.

This means the treatment cannot be considered a “cure-all” solution, but rather should be used as a pre-emptive measure for migraine sufferers.

The history of Anti wrinkle and migraines

During the rise of popularity of using Anti-wrinkle for cosmetic purposes, many people reported an improvement in headaches following their injections. After the series of clinical trials that followed, it was discovered that patients who received Anti-wrinkle had on average eight fewer days of headaches per month than those on the placebo injection.

Anti-wrinkle Injection was eventually licensed specifically for the preventative treatment of chronic migraines in 2010. Using Anti-wrinkle Injections as a preventative measure is an option for people who have migraines that last four hours or more on a regular basis.

In its purified form, the botulinum toxin acts as a neuromuscular blocking agent. When Anti-wrinkle Injection is injected, it paralyzes the chosen muscle by preventing the release of the organic chemical acetylcholine from the nerve endings. The muscle must then strengthen itself again as the nerves regenerate.
