How do muscle relaxants work?

Wrinkles and lines on the face, neck and décolletage can be caused by repeated muscle movements under the skin, like smiling or frowning. Muscle relaxants use a neurotoxin to interrupt the signal between the nerve and muscle, helping to stabilise and immobilise the muscles and reduce their contractions. This makes muscle relaxants an ideal treatment for lifting the face, smoothing wrinkles, and leaving you looking and feeling younger and fresher!

How do wrinkles form?

Wrinkles are a normal part of ageing, as our skin loses its collagen and elasticity. Our skin gets thinner, drier, and less elastic as we age, and it loses its natural ability to protect itself from environmental and lifestyle factors including pollutants, diet, smoking, stress, and more - which means wrinkles, creases, and lines eventually form on our skin.

Facial wrinkles are also caused by continuous muscle contraction and muscle movement. Repeated movements through facial expressions (particularly smiling and frowning) cause dynamic wrinkles which only appear when the muscle is actively used. If left untreated, these dynamic wrinkles can become static over time, which means they become permanent.

Frequently asked questions

What should I be aware of before receiving muscle relaxants?

It takes at least three to five days for the effects of muscle relaxants to occur, and the maximal effect is often achieved after 10 to 14 days. The procedure takes no more than 15 minutes.

It is advisable that you do not lie flat for eight hours post-treatment. The treated area should not be massaged or exposed to heat and you should not bend over to pick up heavy objects for 48 hours after the procedure.

Do muscle relaxants hurt?

There is little pain during muscle relaxants and minimal bruising afterwards. We can apply a topical anaesthetic to the treatment area to help numb your skin if you are particularly sensitive to needles. We also provide stress balls and apply cooling aids such as ice packs and fans during the treatment to keep you cool and soothed. Our treatment rooms are comfortable and restful, with calming music for your relaxation. Our dermal clinicians are fully qualified and very experienced in ensuring you are well looked after with minimal discomfort.

Who will perform the treatment?

Muscle relaxants are strictly delivered by our experienced team of dermal clinicians, including Aesthetic Doctors and degree-certified Aesthetic Nurses and Dermal Therapists. Our team hold certifications specifically focused in aesthetic medicine and are very experienced in delivering these treatments, with patient safety and expectations as our top priority. As your treatment is delivered in a medical facility, we can address any unlikely complications that may arise.

How long do the effects of muscle relaxants last?

The effects of muscle relaxants will last for up to six months, depending on the treatment site. The more often you undergo muscle relaxants the less often you will need them, because over time, the wrinkles will dissipate and the interval between treatments will lengthen. Usually, wrinkles can be kept at bay through maintenance treatments every six to 12 months.

What treatments are best for wrinkles?

Muscle relaxants are the best cosmetic treatment for wrinkles and lines on the skin.

Are muscle relaxants worth it?

Muscle relaxants are beneficial for treating a broad range of aesthetic conditions such as ageing, wrinkles, and lines. It is a very effective treatment providing long-term results with a less invasive technique than some other cosmetic treatments. When performed by a skilled clinician, muscle relaxants can help you to achieve a natural, refreshed look and not only reduce the appearance of current lines and wrinkles but also work to prevent them in the future.
