Benefits Of Muscle Relaxing Injections

By 28th July 2020Aesthetics

Muscle relaxing injections can be used to help smooth out wrinkles in the skin that are a result of the ageing process, facial expressions and environmental factors. The treatment can help to temporarily diminish fine-to-medium lines, with the results being smooth, more youthful-looking skin.

How it works?

Muscle Relaxing Injections work by blocking the nerve impulses from stimulating the muscles, as a result, the muscle relaxes and wrinkles diminish. Facial lines are caused by repeated use of facial muscles, known as facial expressions such as frowning. The effects of the muscle relaxing injections on the muscle is temporary. Overall effects will usually improve with multiple treatments as the muscle is already relaxed from the previous session.

As we get older, we begin to see signs of ageing such as fine lines and wrinkles. These can stem from facial expressions or environmental factors.

Typical areas

  • Around the eyes

Crow’s Feet – An area that is commonly injected is around the eyes. This targets the lines that are known as crow’s feet or smile lines. Crow’s feet are the wrinkles at the corner of the eye and usually result from smiling, laughing, and squinting. The treatment will help visibly reduce crow s feet with a smoother appearance around the eyes.

  • Forehead

Frown lines – Muscle relaxing injections for frown lines is a great way to reduce the look of tension caused by facial expressions. Frown lines are the lines between eyebrows and are caused by repeated squinting and frowning. The treatment will help smoothen the frown line for a more relaxed appearance.

  • Mouth/Lip

Smoker’s Lip – Smoker’s lip is a common area that it is treated and is a result of the constant pursing of lips resulting in vertical wrinkles. The treatment provides extra relaxation to further smooth the skin and reduce the appearance of the wrinkles in the area.

Laugh Lines – These lines can extend from the sides of the nose and curve around the mouth. They are very common as we use the muscles around our lips all the time when smiling etc. The treatment will help to smoothen the appearance of laugh lines and enhance your smile.

  • Body

Excessive Sweating – Muscle relaxing injections can be used to treat the sweat glands in the skin rather than the muscles. Hyperhidrosis is a serious issue which results in underarm excessive sweating caused by overactive sweat glands. The treatment reduces stimulation, which in turn reduces the production of sweat.

What are the benefits?

  • The treatment is non-invasive and requires virtually no recovery time.
  • Wrinkles diminish and the skin becomes softer.
  • Natural looking results.
  • Smooths lines without surgery.
  • A very fine needle is used for the injection so discomfort is minimised.

How long for results?

Results will become apparent around 5 – 10 days post treatment and the results last between 3 and 6 months. If treatment is repeated, the overall results may lengthen with each procedure.

How does it differ from dermal fillers?

Muscle relaxing injections are used to relax wrinkles in the face. Dermal fillers plump areas of the face that have lost volume such as to enhance upper or lower lip.

Prevention is often better than cure.
