muscle relaxing botox

Commonly known as BOTOX™

Every time you smile or frown, you set off a series of contractions in the underlying muscles of your face. As these muscles expand and contract, they crease your skin with an unflattering pattern of lines.

A quick, safe and simple procedure involving Muscle Relaxing injections can smooth out those lines and wrinkles on the upper part of your face, giving you a more relaxed and youthful appearance which can last for several months.

Muscle Relaxing Procedure

A series of tiny muscle relaxing injections are given to the area requiring treatment. The active ingredient is Botulinum Toxin, which, when used in small doses, reversibly relaxes the muscles underneath the skin that produce lines and wrinkles. No local anaesthetic is required to numb the area before treatment and occasionally a small amount of bruising or swelling may occur at the injections sites, which resolves over a few days.

Will I lose expression?

The extent to which facial expression is affected will depend on where the muscle relaxant is injected and how much of the substance is used.
