How cosmetic injections are about more than beauty

Cosmetic injectables have a range of health benefits that go beyond aesthetics.

Cosmetic injectables are among the most popular treatments in aesthetic medicine, and for good reason. They are safe, quick and effective and can help to keep many of the visible signs of ageing at bay. If you’ve noticed wrinkles developing on your face, or are concerned about excessive expression lines around your eyes or brow, you may have considered a series of injections to smooth the skin and achieve a fresher, more youthful-looking appearance.

Injectables such as muscle relaxants, also known as neuromodulators, are big in the world of beauty but did you know that their benefits extend beyond their aesthetic effects? These injections can actually be used to resolve a number of issues — read on to find out about their possible health benefits…

1. Migraines

If you struggle with chronic migraines, you will know how debilitating the issue can be. Symptoms range from intense and throbbing pain, to light sensitivity and nausea. The good news is that neuromodulator injections commonly used to treat fine lines and wrinkles may actually help to alleviate the pain associated with migraines. When used to treat migraines, the injections are usually administered to the head and neck. The procedure does not cause any considerable discomfort and is very quick. It is believed that neuromodulator injections help to reduce the severity and frequency of migraines because they block the chemicals that carry pain signals from the brain to other areas of the body. Generally, treatments are recommended every three months or so to ensure optimal results.

2. Excessive sweating

Excessive sweating, also known as hyperhidrosis, is a condition in which one sweats more than one needs to. Those who suffer from hyperhidrosis often experience excessive sweating on their face, hands and feet, as well as under their arms even when they are not necessarily exerting themselves or in extreme heat. Fortunately, there are a few ways in which the condition can be treated, including with the use of neuromodulator injections. The injections work by blocking the nerves that activate the sweat glands. When the injections are administered, the overactive nerves responsible for excessive sweating are paralysed — this means that the nerves are unable to signal the sweat glands and sweating is prevented altogether. The injections can be administered in various areas of the body, including the underarms, palms and feet.

3. Muscular conditions

Although neuromodulator injections are most well-known for their cosmetic benefits and ability to relax the muscles that cause expression lines, wrinkles and creases, they are also sometimes used to address certain muscular conditions. In fact, the injections can be used to treat a range of underlying issues, including neck spasms; overactive bladder; lazy eye and eye twitching. If you are struggling with any of these muscular conditions, it is advisable that you speak to a healthcare professional to see if muscle relaxants could help you.
