FAQs

What does Injectable Muscle Relaxant treatment involve?

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.

Is Injectable Muscle Relaxant painful?

Any injection can hurt, but usually Muscle Relaxant Injections are done without anaesthetic and are quite pain free. The needles used for Muscle Relaxant Injection are very small, so pain is usually minimal. However, at the patient’s request, the area can be numbed with an anaesthetic cream or cold pack 10-15 minutes before the injections are given.

How many treatments are needed?

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.

Are there any side effects involved?

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.

Is Injectable Muscle Relaxant really safe?

Injectable Muscle Relaxant is purified, sterile and safe to use. It can be used for medical as well as cosmetic purposes.
