|As a rejuvenation technique, small quantities are injected via sterile disposable syringes into specific facial muscles causing them to relax (or freeze). The muscles are no longer able to flex thus stopping the formation of frown lines, forehead lines and crow’s feet. The relaxation of the muscles mean that existing lines are much less pronounced.

A typical treatment of the whole forehead and crow’s feet area takes less than ten minutes. As each area is treated you may experience very mild discomfort for a few seconds.
The vast majority of patients experience no side-effects whatsoever. Occasionally, a small bruise at the injection site may occur which will disappear after a few days and mild headaches lasting a few hours have been reported in a very few instances. While research to date has not shown any risk during pregnancy, I advise that injections are best avoided in pregnant or breastfeeding women.
Noticeable effects take place within two or three days. Two weeks after
the injection the benefits are clear to see and last for 3 months in the first
instance when the procedure will need to be repeated. If Muscle Relaxing Treatment
is given regularly, subsequent injection intervals are increased and may only
be needed once every six months.
Further to facial use, Muscle Relaxing Treatments can be used on the neck where muscular activity causes an undesirable pull on the skin. Muscle Relaxing Treatments is also extremely effective in treating excessive sweating (focal hyperhidrosis affects 0.5% of the population) by more than 90% and lasts between 4 and 9 months.
