In the USA muscle relaxing injections are now the most common aesthetic procedure performed and is increasing dramatically here in the UK.
These muscle relaxing injections provide treatment for frown lines, forehead lines and periorbital lines (laughter lines/crow's feet). Other clinical use includes treatment for migraine and excessive underarm sweating.
The facial muscles are relaxed by these injections by blocking signal transmission at the nerve junction. Ideally treatment is aimed at partial muscle block allowing more natural facial expression.
