By using facial muscles repeatedly throughout our lifetime, the skin is creased in areas of greatest use. The aging process causes the slowdown of collagen and elastin production in the skin so that as we get older these areas of overuse become damaged and the lines become permanent.
Muscle-relaxant injections have the ability to either improve or eliminate those facial lines that have come about from repeated contraction of the underlying expression muscles.
How do Injectable Muscle Relaxants work?
The Muscle Relaxant Injections cause the injected muscles to "relax" so that they no longer contract (squeezing out tiny amounts of precious collagen and hyaluronic acid) and cause lines and wrinkles to form. Muscle relaxant injections also block nerve impulses from the nerve to the tiny facial muscles that are directly related to expression lines. After treatment, the skin overlying the treated area becomes smooth and unwrinkled. The muscles that went untreated contract as usual and leave normal facial expressions unaffected.
What is the recovery time?
Muscle Relaxant Injections require no downtime. You can go straight back to work or out on the town after treatment
How long will the treatment last?
Muscle Relaxant Injections normally last for up to 3-5 months
