Alternative Uses For Anti-Wrinkle Injections

Did you know our injections can do much more than reduce fine lines and wrinkles?

Anti-Wrinkle Injections At The Berkeley Clinic

It is widely known that Anti-Wrinkle injections can smooth out the lines on your face caused naturally through ageing or sun exposure. However, not only do these injections have major cosmetic benefits - but they can also be used to treat a number of unique medical conditions. Here are some alternative uses for Anti-Wrinkle Injections at The Berkeley Clinic.  

Surprising Uses of Anti-Wrinkle Injections

When some people smile, their upper lip elevates too far above their upper teeth, exposing gums and producing an unattractive “Gummy Smile.” Fortunately, a gummy smile can be simply and effectively corrected with Botulinum toxin injections to reduce the activity of the muscle that elevates the upper lip. Your smile will still look natural and attractive, but it won’t reveal more than is aesthetically pleasing.

How do these injections work

Anti-wrinkle injections block certain chemical signals from nerves, mainly signals that cause muscles to contract. The most popular use of these injections is to temporarily relax the facial muscles that cause wrinkles. Anti-wrinkle injections can also be used to treat conditions that affect how the body functions.

Other Uses of Anti-Wrinkle Injections


This is a medical condition that is more commonly known as uncontrollable, excessive sweating. Our aesthetics team can carry out preventative treatment that can alleviate this. This involves temporarily blocking the chemical that activates our sweat glands. Having this treatment for excessive sweating at The Berkeley Clinic can improve this condition by 87% in places such as your armpits, feet, hands and face. 

Chronic Migraines

Our aesthetics practitioners can also provide preventative treatment for painful chronic migraines by inducing muscle relaxation. The injections can ease tension in the forehead between the eyebrows and base of the head, which in turn prevents nerve endings from sending signals to the brain which can reduce a migraine. 


Bell’s Palsy

Bell’s palsy is a temporary paralysis of the facial nerves which causes half the face to droop. Anti-wrinkle injections can be given to aid the recovery process of Bell’s palsy. 

There is much research ongoing into the use of botulinum toxin and medical professionals hope to extend it uses for other medical conditions including the treatment of arthritis pain. 

If administrated safely by a reputable practitioner, who is qualified, muscle relaxing injections can have so many wonderful benefits that are time-proven and show little to no long- term side effects.
