Wrinkle Relaxants

Wrinkle-relaxentTreatment is quick and simple and involves several injections of a naturally purified protein into specifically located sites using a very fine needle.

These injections work by inhibiting the transmission of signals between the nerves and the injected muscle. This stops the affected muscle from contracting, and in turn, reduces the creasing of the overlying skin. Wrinkle relaxants can be used both in the treatment of existing lines, and in the prevention of future wrinkles from occurring.

Wrinkle relaxants can be used as a very effective treatment to relax the muscles that cause the upper facial lines to form. Typically, these include:

  • Frown lines
  • Crows Feet
  • Forehead¬† lines

As well as being used to treat a number of medical conditions including migraine and tension headaches, excessive sweating and the grinding of teeth.

Typically the procedure is very quick with no anesthetic required with no downtime. The client can resume their normal daily activities immediately after the procedure. Side effects are usually temporary and limited. These include:

  • Pain – burning and stinging
  • Bruising
  • Swelling or redness at the injection site
  • Headache
  • Local muscle weakness- drooping eyelids/eyebrows

The results of the procedure start to appear within 2-3 days, but can take 7-14 days to take full effect. Each treatment usually lasts 3-4 months. If you choose not to have further treatments your muscles will return to normal activity and your facial lines will gradually revert to their pre-treatment level.
