What is botulinum toxin hay fever treatment?

Hay fever can be relieved with the use of botulinum toxin. Botulinum toxin is applied topically in the nasal passage to prevent the triggering of hay fever symptoms.
The toxin  works by blocking the conduction of nerve signals in the nasal passage which triggers the onset of hay fever symptoms.



Botulinum toxin treatments provide long-term relief without the need to take a daily hay fever medication especially during the spring and summer months when airborne grass pollens are most prevalent.


Who is a suitable candidate?

Botulinum toxin hay fever treatment suits patients who want a longer-term solution to their hay fever symptoms. This is a great option for those  who have not achieved satisfactory relief from allergic rhinitis symptoms with the other available treatment options.

What is the process?

The process is very quick and without any discomfort. You will be required to come to the clinic twice.

The product is sprayed into each nostril using an atomiser designed specifically for the nasal passage. No needles or injections are required.



There is no downtime, No nose blowing, using nasal sprays and vigorous exercise for 4 hours following the treatment.


When will I see results ?

The onset of results will vary from patient to patient due to severity of symptoms, the dose used and individual patient factors. Generally, we have found that patients begin to notice relief from their allergy symptoms two weeks after treatment.

The results from botulinum toxin hay fever treatment are not permanent. Most patients who experience seasonal allergic rhinitis (hay fever) only require this treatment at the beginning of the hay fever season to help relieve symptoms. However, patients who experience symptoms all year round opt to have treatment every 4 to 8 weeks. Treatment frequency can vary depending on how severe your symptoms are and how severe the current hay fever season is.
