Facial wrinkles are caused by the muscles that are used to form facial expressions.
Muscle Relaxant Injections are used to reduce lines and wrinkles that form in the upper face. As we age, changes occur at different rates to our upper, mid and lower face. In the upper face ‘dynamic’ lines appear in the forehead and around the eyes when we smile or frown. These lines appear because various muscles contract to form different facial expressions. Over time these expression lines begin to linger longer, or become deeper, even when your face is at rest. While a few lines add character, muscle relaxant injections relax wrinkle-causing muscles to help refresh your facial appearance.
What are Muscle Relaxant Injections?
Muscle relaxant injections are a quick and simple, non-surgical procedure, which generally takes around 15 minutes. It can take up to two weeks to see the full effects of the injections, with results usually lasting up to four months and gradually decreasing over time. If you have regular treatment, the effects may last longer.
Muscle relaxant injections are intended to strengthen and revitalise your looks. Treatment will only relax muscles beneath the facial lines at the point of injection so that other elements of facial expression remain active. If you choose not to have further treatment, your muscles will eventually return to former activity and your facial lines will gradually revert to their pre-treatment levels.
