Anti-wrinkle injections are injected into the scalp, moderating the production and effect of pain-producing neurotransmitters in the brain that give us chronic migraines. Almost all patients treated at the clinic experience a significant reduction in the frequency and severity of their headaches. However, treatment should only be performed by a doctor, who is qualified to exclude other causes of headache that may need more detailed investigation or other specialist treatment.

Minute doses of anti-wrinkle injections are injected superficially into the affected areas which can significantly reduce the severity of facial acne, particularly recurrent spots occurring in the same area on a regular basis. Pore size is reduced, and the skin takes on a more even texture.

This is a condition that is sometimes inherited, which causes the fingers to become cold, white and/or blue and painful with relatively minor exposure to cold. It is caused by hypersensitivity of the muscular wall of the arteries supplying the fingers, causing the circulation to be reduced in the fingers. In severe cases, ulceration and frostbite can result. Injection of botulinum toxin into the bases of the fingers can be very effective in improving the circulation, lasting for 3-4 months or more.

Bruxism or 'teeth grinding', is a problem for many, and can, in turn, lead to headaches, damaged teeth and a square, wide jaw, which in women, can be defeminising. Many patients struggle with uncomfortable and expensive dental mouth guards and devices, so this can be a welcome and very effective alternative. Injections into the overactive muscles can be a quick, effective and painless solution.
