Muscle Relaxing Injections

Frown Lines & Crow’s Feet

Muscle relaxing injections work by preventing nerve impulses from reaching the muscle; therefore the muscles “relax”.

These injections are the most common facial cosmetic treatment currently used worldwide and can be used to treat and smooth out wrinkles on the forehead (Frown Lines), eye area (Crows Feet), neck lines and even lift the eyebrows.

As part of facial rejuvenation procedures, these muscle relaxing injections have now been used for many years by both women and men. Muscle relaxing products are routinely used by celebrities to enhance their looks and preserve appearance, however these products are now available to anyone who wishes to restore or maintain a youthful look. Everyone can now have a slice of Hollywood!

Treatment Explained

Muscle relaxing products are injected with a very fine needle into the hyperactive muscle. It works on the nerve endings preventing the release of chemical messages or neuron transmitters, causing the muscle to become temporarily paralysed.

The effects can usually be seen within 10-14 days. Limiting the muscle activity softens and smoothes out the appearance of deep lines and wrinkles. The injections are almost painless and an anaesthetic cream can be applied to the skin for 20 minutes before injections if preferred.

We use several commercially available products based on what is currently in vogue and carries the best evidence for use.

Are there any side effects?

The most common minor side effects are tenderness or mild bruising around the injection site. In a very small percentage of cases there may be a complication called ptosis or drooping of the eyelid which may last a few weeks.

What can I do after treatment?

Do not lie down for at least 6 hours.Do not rub the treated area.Air travel is not advisable for 7 days post treatment.

How long will the effects last?

Usually between 4-8 months but this depends on the number of previous treatments, the treatment area and the individual’s response.
