Peppermint Aesthetics is now able to offer Kenalog injections that help with the inflammatory response to the allergy of pollen and dust.
Many people suffer with Hay Fever or some type of allergy that is triggered by the following substances: Tree, Grass, Ragweed, Flower pollen which is heightened by hot dry days and being outside. Also, people can have allergies to Dust Mites, Pet Dander, Cockroaches, Mold and Fungal spores which are found indoors. Most allergies are seasonal but heightened in the warmer months between March and October.
Kenalog is an injected steroid that prevents the release of substances/chemicals in the body that causes inflammation. Kenalog is a multi-use medication but is particularly good at helping with the symptoms of Hay Fever.
As with any medication there maybe side effects. Long term use of Kenalog can suppress the immune system making it easier for you to develop an infection, can make you feverish, weak, irritation to skin, diarrhoea and can effect you eye sight. Peppermint offers a complimentary consultation before giving this treatment. Not everyone is suitable, your practitioner may request a GP letter/referral before a treatment can be given.
At Peppermint Aesthetics this treatment consists of a single injection to the buttock, once a year (no more than three in one year for severe cases). This is enough to suppress the inflammatory response or relieve it enough to make day to day life more manageable.
Complimentary consultation required!
This treatment is a prescription only medication (POM) and should only be administered by a medical professional!
