Frequently Asked Questions- Muscle Relaxants

What are they?

A purified protein which when injected into a muscle leads to a temporary muscular relaxation. Frown lines, worry lines and laughter lines are all caused by the repeated contractions of facial muscles: relaxing these muscles with muscle relaxing injectables is a quick, safe and effective way to smooth and soften many wrinkles.

What will happen during the treatment?

We will undertake a thorough facial analysis and detailed discussion before proposing an appropriate treatment plan. The actual procedure takes just 5-10 mins and involves a small number of injections of muscle relaxant solution directly into the muscle groups causing wrinkling.

How quickly will I notice an effect?

You will be able to return to your normal daily activities immediately following treatment: there will be no visible changes. The full effect of the treatment will develop over the following 2-14 days.

How safe is it?

Muscle relaxants are considered a very safe medication. It is now approved by medical authorities in over 70 countries worldwide.

What are the side effects?

There may be slight discomfort as the needle enters the skin, and there is the possibility of a small bruise at the site of the injection. Any concerns you may have will be addressed thoroughly prior to treatment. No long term side-effects have been reported.

Post Treatment Care?

Clients are advised to stay upright and to try to exercise the areas treated for 2-4 hours following the injections. It is important to avoid massaging these areas though. This is to prevent the diffusion of solutions to adjacent muscles.
