Injectable Muscle Relaxants
Injectable Muscle Relaxants target the specific facial muscles that cause expression lines and dynamic wrinkles in the upper face (crow’s feet next to the eyes, horizontal forehead lines and vertical frown lines between the eyes). The treatment relaxes the muscles that it is injected into. Once the muscles are relaxed, you cannot contract them or continue to make undesirable facial expressions. Over time, and with repeated treatments, the lines gradually smooth and new lines are prevented from forming. Injectable Muscle Relaxants have a temporary effect, lasting around 3-4 months, so there are no concerns about permanent damage or scarring.
The treatment process is simple, safe and with minimal pain. Procedures generally take about 15 -30 minutes.
Using a tiny micro-needle, the doctor will inject a minute amount of substance very precisely into several locations on the face. No sedation or local anaesthetic is required, and you can resume most non-strenuous activities immediately. You can even drive yourself home or back to the office.
