Muscle Relaxing Injection: What is it?

Muscle Relaxing Injection is a brand name belonging to Allergan, who manufacture and promote the use of  Muscle Relaxing Injection for both cosmetic and medical applications. Other manufacturers have their own brands of Muscle Relaxing Injection such as Xeomin. Since Muscle Relaxing Injection causes botulism that paralyses muscles, scientists have discovered a way to use different forms of Muscle Relaxing Injection for both medical and cosmetic advantage.

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) of America first approved Muscle Relaxing Injection treatments for medical conditions such as uncontrolled twitching, pain management, excessive sweating in the late eighties. Since then, qualified clinical practitioners have been using Muscle Relaxing Injection for years to successfully treat facial wrinkles. Muscle Relaxing Injection gained FDA approval for treatment of moderate-to-severe frown lines between the eyebrows in 2002. It is generally accepted by the cosmetic industry that Muscle Relaxing Injection is often used for other areas of the face to smooth wrinkles.

Muscle Relaxing Injection injections: How Do they Work?

Muscle Relaxing Injection injections deliver the drug to the nerves in the muscles which blocks signals that previously caused muscles to contract creating wrinkles. Blocked signals cause the muscles to relax and create a smooth, wrinkle free appearance.

Wrinkles on forehead lines, crow’s feet (lines around the eye) and frown lines are reduced in appearance after Muscle Relaxing Injection treatment. Wrinkles created by sun damage or gravity, typically in parts of the lower face, will not respond to Muscle Relaxing Injection and may be more suitable for dermal fillers.

Performing Muscle Relaxing Injection injection treatments: How and by Whom?

For Muscle Relaxing Injection treatments to be most effective, it is suggested that patients avoid alcohol at least one week before treatment. All your past medical history and current medication will be determined and assessed at time of consultation. If a patient is deemed suitable for Muscle Relaxing Injection treatment a prescription will be created. Prescriptions can only be made by qualified doctors, dentists or nurse prescribers. The procedure itself only takes a few minutes and no topical anaesthetic is required. Muscle Relaxing Injection is injected with a fine needle into specific muscles with only minor discomfort. It generally takes seven to ten days to take full effect for first time patients and shorter periods for frequent users.

Muscle Relaxing Injection Injections: How Long Will the Muscle Relaxing Injection Treatment Last?

The smooth appearance of wrinkle free skin will generally last for four to six months for frequent users. For first time patients the effect may be shorter as the muscles require more time to adjust. Over time, muscle action gradually returns and the lines and wrinkles slowly begin to re-appear, ready for your next treatment of Muscle Relaxing Injection injection. With subsequent treatments the lines and wrinkles often appear less severe with time because the muscles are being trained to relax.

Muscle Relaxing Injection Treatment Side Effects: What Are They?

A possible side effect is temporary bruising. In extremely rare cases, eye lid drooping can occur. The latter can happen if patient rubs their eyes or lies flat during the subsequent few hours after treatment. Eyelid drooping is only a short term side effect. Some first time patients complain of feeling as if their head is ‘heavy’ after treatment; however, this generally wears off by the next day.

Muscle Relaxing Injection Treatment: Who Should Avoid it?

Women who are pregnant or breastfeeding should avoid Muscle Relaxing Injection treatment. Other contra-indications based on medical conditions will be discussed at the consultation as will the patients expectations. Recommendations will be made in terms of Muscle Relaxing Injection or dermal fillers based on the patient’s own desired effects.
