Muscle relaxants are injections that are used to “relax” the muscles that cause lines to form on the face. The lines we refer to as frown lines, crow’s feet, forehead lines and smoker’s lines can be effectively minimised using this treatment.

Lines & wrinkles that occur during expression are called “dynamic” lines. The injection of muscle relaxants can achieve great results by reducing the muscle power of the frown or squint thereby reducing the lines from forming. Although most people do not want to look “frozen”, there is an art of injecting just the “right” amount.

Lines & wrinkles that are still obvious when there is no expression are called “static “lines. Muscle relaxants are not the only answer in this instance. A combination approach of treatments is far better in achieving a more youthful, healthy complexion.

Muscle relaxants will only relax the area beneath the surface point of injection. Other muscles adjacent will remain active. It can take up to 2 weeks to see the full effects of the treatment and the relaxant properties can last between 2-4 months.

If you choose not to repeat the procedure, the muscles will revert to normal activity.
