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.

Treatment areas offered:

  • Frown lines - (Glabellar region)
  • Horizontal forehead lines
  • Periorbital laughter lines (crow's feet).

 Treatment of horizontal forehead lines alone is not recommended without the glabellar region also being treated at the same time this as there has to be balance to the relaxation of opposing facial muscle action, in some people and skin types
