Injectable muscle relaxants are a non-surgical treatment, which are commonly used to effectively treat wrinkles, as well as to relax facial expression and neck muscles. Muscle relaxant injections can also treat the jaw, to reduce tension and pain from teeth grinding, or reduce severe underarm sweat problems.
Dr Zacharia and his team use one of the top recognised and globally prominent anti-wrinkle treatments, with more than 13 million procedures administered. Your suitability for injectable muscle relaxants will be assessed during an initial consultation with Dr Zacharia or his team.
Any male and female adult can have muscle relaxant injections. Those looking for fast, non-surgical anti-wrinkle procedures, who seek a solution with no, or very limited recovery time, are ideal candidates.
Any medications or supplements taken should be disclosed to the physician, as they may increase bleeding and bruising at the injection sites.
Pregnant or nursing women are not eligible for Muscle Relaxant Injections. Also, any person with an infection near the injection site should postpone treatment until the infection is resolved. Furthermore, there is a greatly increased risk of serious side effects in patients with any pre-existing neuromuscular disorder.
Injectable Muscle Relaxant treatment uses a purified protein that relaxes the wrinkle-causing muscles to provide a smooth, more youthful appearance. The treatment is non-surgical and takes approximately 15 minutes. Injections relax the muscle, causing wrinkles to, but the results are only visible within five-to-seven days.
Patient results vary anywhere between two and six moths and usually receive treatment once the effects slow down. Most patients will notice that they will see a return of ‘dynamic’ wrinkles (those created from muscle contraction) by three to four months after injections. Therefore, a patient usually requires three-to-four Muscle Relaxant Injection treatments per year to maintain the desired effect.
There are always possible side effects in any procedure, but in the majority of cases, any side effects are temporary and limited. Those side effects may include pain at the injection site, infection, inflammation, swelling, redness, bleeding and bruising. Some of these symptoms may indicate an allergic reaction, including itching, wheezing, asthma, a rash, red welts, dizziness and faintness, etc. If you have any concerns about the side effects, talk to your physician.
Dr. Zacharia will then provide a checklist surgery information packet that explains everything a patient should do and know before their injection date.
