Muscle relaxing injection uses a natural purified protein known as Botox® which relaxes wrinkle-causing muscles and creates a smoothed, rejuvenated appearance. When injected into a muscle, Botox® temporarily blocks the chemical signals that make the muscle contract.
A tiny amount of Botox is injected into the hyperactive muscles, which blocks the nerve impulse from reaching these muscles. The muscle simply relaxes or ‘goes to sleep’. This relaxation enables the skin to relax and the lines smooth away.
You will asked you to frown or smile to assess your muscle movement and then determine the injection site to achieve the best results for you.
The Botox muscle relaxing injection is then administered by several tiny injections, which feels like a pin prick. Normally no anaesthetic is required, but topical anaesthetic cream can be applied if you wish.
You can return to work or day to day activities immediately, but will be asked to follow post treatment guidelines.
Contra-indications 7 days before muscle relaxing injection treatment:
From 2 -7 days in most patients, but some can take up to 14 days to see the full effect.
Side effects are rare and normally resolve within a very short time, but the most common ones are:
(NB: This usually resolves within a few days. Interestingly, Botox is a recognized treatment for headaches as it helps relax the muscles that are associated with headaches.)
Results can last from 3 to 4 months following initial treatment. Subsequent muscle relaxing injection treatments can last much longer, but this does vary in individual patients. It is, however, widely accepted that after the first year or so you may need less frequent visits e.g. only twice a year.
No. Should you discontinue treatment your lines will gradually revert to their pre-treatment appearance.
The following precautions are to be observed immediately following the injection of Botox®. These precautions limit the spread of the muscle relaxant from the site of injection.
