Anti-wrinkle injections could be used to treat eczema

There is a case study that was reported in the media of a woman, a model named Danielle Sheehan, who had her eczema completely disappear after an unrelated (read: cosmetic) treatment that included anti-wrinkle injections.

Sheehan had reportedly had eczema since she was a baby, which disappeared during childhood and appeared again at about age 20. The eczema was around her eyes and face, and on her arms. After having the anti-wrinkle injections for cosmetic reasons at age 24, her eczema spontaneously cleared up five days later. Her face was left completely clear.

Sheehan isn’t the only person these results have been observed in. Research published in 2012 found anti-wrinkle injections may be able to help manage itching and eczema. Benefits of the injections last as long as the injections, which is about four to six months.

Researchers are now only just beginning to understand the effect the drug has on blood vessels and nerves in skin diseases, which may have far-reaching potential for treating psoriasis and eczema, amongst others. One of the hardest things to manage in dermatology is severe eczema and the steroids used to treat it, with negative side-effects experienced with long-term use. The itching of eczema can exacerbate the problem, so having some possible alternatives is incredibly valuable.

Psoriasis has been found to positively respond to anti-wrinkle injections, with a decrease in blood vessels and specific cells observed in affected skin.

In dermatology, anti-wrinkle injections are being investigated for burns, rheumatic conditions like Raynaud’s disease and scleroderma. Anti-wrinkle injections are being used medically across many different applications, including overactive bladder, migraine, muscle stiffness and other muscle conditions. Recent research is looking into anti-wrinkle injections for anxiety and depression too.
