Muscle Relaxing Injections Treatment

Muscle relaxing injections, which are particularly renowned for its short-term improvement of facial wrinkles, has also been used used throughout the world for over last twenty years in the application of non surgical cosmetic treatments to smooth out unwanted wrinkles and lines. It is a natural, purified protein that has been used for therapeutic purposes for decades. It is proven to be safe, reliable and effective, hence its popularity.

Muscle relaxing injections can only be prescribed by a doctor or qualified prescribing clinician such as a prescribing nurse. If you are considering having muscle relaxing injections in Manchester, only doctors and fully qualified nurse prescribers prescribe and administer muscle relaxing injections at our Manchester Clinic.

Not all muscle relaxing injections are the same. We only use muscle relaxing injections which are FDA approved and regarded as the gold standard. This FDA approval means that the product has gone through rigorous testing and has been deemed safe and effective for aesthetic use.

Skin Medical also uses muscle relaxing injections to combat excessive perspiring/sweating (hyperhidrosis), teeth grinding (bruxism) and for jaw reshaping (masseter hypertrophy).

All of our practitioners have over ten years’ experience in performing muscle relaxing injections. This experience means that patients will have a more natural appearance following treatment, as opposed to the ‘frozen face’ look that is a result of less experienced practitioners and inferior muscle relaxing injections.


Repetitive facial expressions cause the tiny muscles under the skin to contract, gradually creating wrinkles. When injected directly into these muscles, the muscle relaxing injections stops nerve impulses reaching the area and causing further contractions. The treated muscle then relaxes, which in turn smoothes the skin covering the muscle. In some cases, with repeated treatments, the wrinkle can actually disappear altogether.

The effects of muscle relaxing injections are restricted to the treatment areas and do not travel throughout the body.

Are Muscle Relaxing Injections Painful?

Some people feel some very mild discomfort, but most find the procedure painless. As a very fine needle is used for the injection, discomfort is minimised.
