Addressing Forehead, Frown Lines, and Brow Lift: Anti-wrinkle injections can help smooth out forehead creases and frown lines, as well as provide a subtle lift to the eyebrows by relaxing the muscles that cause wrinkles and depress the brow.
Improving Eye Area Wrinkles: This includes reducing 'crow's feet', under eye lines, and 'bunny lines'. The injections work by relaxing the fine muscles around the eyes, reducing the visibility of these lines.
Reducing Lip and Mouth Lines: This addresses vertical lip lines (smoker's lines) and smile lines (nasolabial folds). Anti-wrinkle injections can help soften these lines, leading to a smoother lip and mouth area.
Smoothing Marionette Lines: These lines that run downwards from the corners of the mouth can be reduced in appearance with anti-wrinkle injections by relaxing the muscles in this area.
Enhancing Neck Appearance: This includes reducing the appearance of 'turkey wattle neck' or neck bands, contributing to a smoother neck appearance.
Alleviating Underarm Sweating: Anti-wrinkle injections can be used to treat severe underarm sweating, a condition known as hyperhidrosis. The treatment works by blocking the nerves responsible for activating sweat glands.
Managing Painful Jaw due to Teeth Grinding (Bruxism): Anti-wrinkle injections can assist in the treatment of bruxism and related TMJ disorders, helping to relax the masseter muscles, thereby reducing teeth grinding and the associated discomfort.
General Rejuvenation: Beyond addressing specific lines and wrinkles, anti-wrinkle injections can contribute to a general rejuvenation of the face, leading to an overall smoother appearance.

What to expect

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.

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 risks and complications

Bruising and Swelling: There can be minor bruising and swelling at the injection site which usually resolves within a few days.
Muscle Weakness: If the injected relaxant spreads beyond the intended area, it can cause temporary weakness in nearby muscles.
Facial Asymmetry: Incorrectly administered injections could potentially lead to an imbalance in facial appearance, such as uneven eyebrows or smile.
Drooping Eyelids (Ptosis): If injected near the eyelids, there's a chance that the muscle relaxant could cause a temporary drooping of the eyelids.
Difficulty Swallowing: If injections are administered in the neck area, there's a risk of temporary difficulty in swallowing.
Allergic Reactions: These can range from mild itching or rash to severe anaphylactic reactions, although these are extremely rare.
Headaches: Some patients may experience temporary headaches following treatment with injectable muscle relaxants.
Flu-like Symptoms: A small number of patients report experiencing flu-like symptoms, such as general malaise, fatigue, or fever post-treatment.

Patient results vary anywhere between two and six moths and usually receive treatment once the effects slow down.
