Studies Suggest – Wrinkle reduction treatment for Arthritis Pain

Wrinkle reduction treatment for arthritis pain

Popularly used to smoothen fine lines and reduce the appearance of wrinkles, experts are exploring the potential of Wrinkle reduction treatment for arthritis pain, specifically rotator cuff arthropathy. Rotator cuff consists of four tendons and four muscles that surround the joints and provide important function. It makes sure the end of the humerus stays within the socket of the shoulder.

Rotator cuff tears are more common among the elderly. This is often caused by wear and tear in the joints and affects up to one in four people. Along with reduced blood supply, tendons in the area become weaker with age. Shoulder blade rubs against these tendons, causing tears in the tissue and impairing movement. Some elderly people experience difficulty in raising their arm above their head due to rotator cuff arthropathy.

Benefits of Wrinkle reduction treatment for Arthritis Pain

In the past, treatment options for arthritis pain include heat or ice packs, anti-inflammatory medications and physiotherapy, and sometimes, for severe cases, surgery. Administration of Wrinkle reduction treatment in the affected muscles bypasses such measures because Wrinkle reduction treatment relaxes the tissue by blocking signals that prompt the muscle to tighten.

Another reason is that Wrinkle reduction treatment for arthritis pain can paralyze the nerves. Similar to injecting wrinkles, it could have similar effect on the muscles that is transmitting pain. The toxin may eventually be used for treating osteoarthritis patients and those with rotator cuff arthropathy, whose pain isn’t adequately controlled by traditional medicines such as analgesics or NSAIDS.

Wrinkle reduction treatment Blocks Pain Signals

Like how Wrinkle reduction treatment flattens wrinkles, the substance can block neuromuscular junction, so the nerve cannot transmit signals, preventing muscle contraction.

In a study published by the Journal of Rheumatology, 54 patients with chronic knee pain were grouped into two – one group were injected with Wrinkle reduction treatment while the other were given placebo. Result of the study showed 71 percent of those administered with Wrinkle reduction treatment achieved significant reduction in pain, with measurable improvement in the joint function compared to 35 percent of those who got placebo.

Wrinkle reduction treatment as a Possible Treatment for Inflammation

Another study has further raised interest by telling that Wrinkle reduction treatment might be used someday for treating inflammation. Published in the Biochemistry Journal in 2011, it cited a future use of Wrinkle reduction treatment – treating chronic inflammation and not only temporarily relieving pain.

The study led by Felix Yeh, PhD said the focus of the study is to learn how the toxin get into the neurons, something he names ‘the Trojan horse strategy’. With the use of Botulinum toxin Type B, a relatively new product, Yeh revealed that the neurotoxin can be used to inhibit the release of tumor necrosis factor alpha, a type of cytokine that possibly causes inflammation in autoimmune diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis.

Recent Study: Wrinkle reduction treatment for Burning Mouth Syndrome

burning mouth syndrome

A recent study has found that Wrinkle reduction Injections might be a safe, effective and long-term treatment for ‘Burning Mouth Sydrome’.

What is Burning Mouth Syndrome?

Burning mouth syndrome is characterized by a burning pain in the mouth, occurring every day for several months or even longer. Dentists and doctors don’t have a particular test to diagnosed BMS, hence it is difficult to diagnose. There are no specific treatment that work for the general public, but your doctor may prescribe medications to help manage dry mouth, mouth pain and other symptoms.

The primary symptom of burning mouth syndrome is the mouth pain that is tingling, scalding or burning. There may also be a feeling of numbness. Other symptoms include altered taste in the mouth and dry mouth.

BMS pain may last for months to years. Often, the tongue is affected, however, it may also be at the roof of the mouth, throughout the mouth or only the lips. Some people feel pain every day and others experience increasing pain throughout the day. For most, the pain is reduced when drinking or eating.

Several medical conditions can cause BMS:

  • Allergies
  • Drug side effects
  • Thyroid issues
  • Damage to nerves that control taste and pain

Wrinkle reduction treatment for Burning Mouth Syndrome

Wrinkle reduction treatment has long been used to smoothen wrinkles but it may also come to the rescue for those suffering from a painful condition known as burning mouth syndrome.

A team of Italian researchers found that Wrinkle reduction treatment might be an effective, safe and long-lasting treatment for the disorder. Published in the Annals of Internal Medicine, a team led by Domenico Restivo, MD, of Garibaldi Hospital, Catania claims that Wrinkle reduction treatment , a purified polypeptide that can relax muscles by blocking neuro-muscular junction (nerve receptors) that innervate the muscles, might help ease the condition.

The small study involved one man and three women in their 60s and 70s. All are diagnosed with Burning Mouth Syndrome on their lower lip and tongue for at least six months. Each patient got a total dose of 16 injection in the lower lip and tongue.

The Wrinkle reduction treatment group reported that pain disappeared within 48 hours in all patients. The beneficial effect lasted for 16 weeks after the Wrinkle reduction treatment therapy in all except for one patient whom the effect lasted for 20 weeks.

The other group involving two patients received saline injections as placebo and saw no improvement in their condition. This effectively ruled out the placebo effect. No side effects were noted from the treatment. Dr. Restivo’s team concluded that the positive results from this study is encouraging, believing that the findings must lead to a more comprehensive, randomised trial.

The Benefits of Wrinkle reduction treatment for Neurological Disorders

Wrinkle reduction treatment for neurological disorders

Over the years, the use of Wrinkle reduction treatment has extended, from medicinal to cosmetic. Developed as a biological weapon, numerous studies have revealed its effectiveness and usefulness beyond enhancing your facial features. Right now, Wrinkle reduction treatment has been highly useful in multidisciplinary fields such as urology, endocrinology, ophthalmology, endocrinology and neurology. This neurotoxin provided benefits for many chronic conditions such as muscle spasm and stiffness by relaxing abnormal muscle contractions.

When there are problems concerning muscle activity, Wrinkle reduction treatment has been a go-to drug due to its effect that help release stiffness.

Below are the different conditions using Wrinkle reduction treatment for neurological disorders:

  • Blepharospasm – a neurological condition manifested by forcible closure of eyelids or abnormal twitching of eyelashes and eyelid. In the case of blepharospasm, the eye muscles contract to the point that the person could not open his eyes and they have to use their hands to open them. Such condition can be an unpleasant experience for the sufferer. A very minimal dose of Wrinkle reduction treatment can be administered through a fine needle in the eyelids.
  • Hemifacial Spasm – a condition when there is involuntary muscle contractions of the face on one side, manifested by flickering movement of the affected muscles. The condition can be resolved by injecting Wrinkle reduction treatment on the lower face and around the eye.
  • Meige’s Syndrome – a condition in which the upper and lower part of the facial muscle contracts.
  • Cervical dystonia – a condition characterized by high muscle tone in the neck, resulting in different positions of the head. Sometimes, the neck rotates and pulls in a certain direction. The condition is sometimes called ‘wry neck’ or torticollis. Wrinkle reduction treatment helps by providing controlled relaxation of the affected muscles.
  • Upper and lower limb spasticity – there are times when a person recovers from stroke, muscle stiffness can hinder recovery. In some cases, spasticity is severe that it causes restrictions of movement. Wrinkle reduction treatment help relax the muscles to assist physiotherapy.
  • Writer’s Cramp – a condition in which a person have difficulty in writing only. A person with writer’s cramp may only write one to two pages and after that, their hands begins to give up.
  • Migraine – not all cases of migraine require Wrinkle reduction treatment injection. Wrinkle reduction treatment can be used for migraine if the person experience frequent headaches and failed to respond with other treatment.
  • Wrinkle reduction treatment for Neurological Disorders – How It Work

    Wrinkle reduction treatment for neurological disorders causes a controlled relaxation with abnormal muscle movements or spasticity. The process is ‘irreversible’ and has to be injected every 3 to 6 months. Wrinkle reduction treatment can be highly effective when injected in the right spot. It is important to hire someone with considerable experience and expertise in Wrinkle reduction treatment injection
