The repeated actions of muscles result in the formation of wrinkles and facial lines. These include the forehead, between the eyebrows, crows feet and fine lines around the mouth.
Botulinum Toxin (Muscle Relaxant) is injected into specific facial muscles causing them to relax. The muscles are then no longer able to flex, thereby stopping the formation of lines and wrinkles.
The improvement will be visible within a few days and will last for anything up to 3 – 6 months. Then, as the months go by, you will notice a gradual fading of its effect, at which point you can return for a new treatment.
The main areas to benefit from Muscle Relaxant treatment are the glabella (the area between the eyebrows), frown lines on the forehead and crows feet. It can be combined with other treatments around the mouth, neck, and hands.
In addition, Muscle Relaxant injections have been used very successfully to treat excessive sweating of the underarm, face and the palms of the hands.
