Haytox

Did you know that botulinum toxin (used for anti-wrinkle injections) can be used to reduce hayfever symptoms? Haytox involves a topical, injection-free non-invasive application into the nasal passages which can reduce sinus discomfort, itching, swelling, runny nose, eye irritation and other classic signs of hayfever.

How Does Haaytox Work?

Allergic Rhinitis, also known as hayfever, is caused by stimulation of facial nerves in response to environmental triggers, most commonly pollen and other plant materials. Botulinum toxin is a neuromodulator, meaning that it acts on nerves and prevents their activation. When used for anti-wrinkle injections, it is applied to facial nerves which attach to facial muscles, preventing their activation so that those facial muscles are not triggered to contract. This prevents facial wrinkles from forming and/or deepening. Haytox applies the same principles, except that it is only applied to the sinus nerves as opposed to facial muscles. This reduces over-stimulation of sinus nerves which usually trigger allergy symptoms.

What Can I Expect During Haytox Treatment?

During your treatment, a special solution containing botulinum toxin will be delivered to the nasal passages via nasal spray or sterile applicators. This may be slightly uncomfortable but should not cause any pain. The treatment may trigger symptoms of a hayfever attack for up to 10 minutes before subsiding, and you will begin to notice your hayfever symptoms resolving within a few hours. The full effects will be active within around 2 weeks.

How Long Do Results Last?

Haytox treatment longevity will vary between individuals. You may require a second treatment after 4-6 weeks to fully minimise your hayfever. Generally, Haytox can reduce hayfever symptoms for up to 3 years, depending on your health and immune function. There are virtually no risks or side effects, and treatment will not impact your sense of smell or breathing functions.
