The substance used in anti wrinkle injections, has been used as an innovative treatment for hay fever (allergic rhinitis). It is applied as an aerolised nasal spray to alleviate symptoms such as sneezing, runny nose and congestion by targeting the nasal mucosa. Research indicates that this may be an effective option if you do not achieve relief with other therapies or do not want to take daily medication.

What Is Hay Fever?

Hay Fever affects 1 in 5 Australians. It occurs when the body’s immune system overreacts to seasonal allergens such as pollens and grass or year-round triggers like dust mites and animal dander. This immune response causes symptoms such as sneezing, runny nose, congestion, irritated eyes and worsening of asthma symptoms.

Hay fever season is known to be especially harsh here in Melbourne. Various environmental factors in this area produce favourable conditions for the growth of grasses and the production of pollen, leading some to dub Melbourne the world’s allergy capital.

You may be able to manage or relieve hay fever on your own with treatments such as antihistamine medications and nasal sprays. However, if these methods do not work for you, or if you prefer a more low-maintenance option, topical anti-wrinkle medicine may be a solution.

How Does Anti-Wrinkle Medicine Reduce The Symptoms Of Hay Fever?

The active ingredient in anti-wrinkle injections works by blocking neural transmissions between nerve endings and muscles. When injected into an area with dynamic wrinkles, it prevents the muscles from contracting, which inhibits movement and creasing in the overlying skin. This temporarily reduces the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines.

The same active ingredient can treat some of the symptoms of hay fever. When topically applied to the nasal passages, it blocks neural transmissions at the nerve endings found in the lining of the nasal cavity. These nerve endings are responsible for reacting to airborne allergens. Applying the medicine to these nerve endings prevents this reaction and reduces the associated hay fever symptoms.

Not all symptoms of hay fever respond to this treatment. The effect is primarily noticed in the reduction of runny nose and congestion.

What Are The Benefits Of Hay Fever Tox?

Many hay fever sufferers take medication daily to control their symptoms. Our hay fever treatment is a convenient alternative that can provide longer-lasting relief without daily upkeep. 

Conventional hay fever treatments address symptoms after the immune response has been triggered. In contrast, hay fever tox prevents the immune response from happening in the first place. It can be used in conjunction with other hay fever treatments if additional relief is needed.
