Anti wrinkle injections, also known as muscle relaxing injections, have been used safely and effectively for over 30 years to treat many medical disorders. Muscle relaxing injections are now commonly used to smooth away lines and wrinkles on the face with amazing results.
As we age, areas of most facial expression become damaged and fine lines and wrinkles start to appear. These will eventually become permanent. By reducing the movement of the muscles in these areas the skin can rejuvenate and fine lines are softened, preventing the formation of deeper lines.
Following a full and thorough consultation, tiny amounts are injected into the appropriate areas to temporarily relax the muscles which are causing the lines and wrinkles. Surrounding muscles are able to function as normal, therefore normal expression is maintained.
There is no down time with this treatment; there is minimal discomfort with the effects being seen over 7-14 days and lasting between 3-6 months. Over this time there is a gradual return to normal.
Muscle relaxing injections can be used for the following:
- Reducing fine lines and wrinkles
- Enhancement of eyebrow position
- Preventing formation of new lines and wrinkles
- Hyperhidrosis (Excessive underarm sweating)
