Non cosmetic uses for muscle relaxing injections. 

How does the procedure work? 

Expression lines occur when we smile, laugh, cry, wince, grimace, scowl or frown. The delicate muscles underlying the skin contract in concert with each other producing expression lines or ‘dynamic wrinkles’ and it is these that may be treated with muscle relaxant injections. Muscle relaxant injections work by weakening the tiny muscles very precisely. After treatment, the expression lines and excess movement is diminished, however normal facial expression should appear natural. Injections can be used in many areas of the face, neck and chest because of the way they affect muscles. 

What will the patient experience during the procedure? 

This treatment is usually both simple and safe. Small amounts of the muscle relaxant are injected with a very fine needle into the treatment area. As the needle is so fine and only a small amount of liquid is used, discomfort is usually minimal.

What can the patient expect after the procedure? 

There may be a small amount of bleeding or bruising at the injection site however most people feel they can return to work immediately after the procedure.
