Muscle relaxing injections contain Botulinum toxin A and are branded as Botox, Azzalure and Bocuture. They have been used in medical practice for over 30 years. When injected under the skin, they relax the muscles in that specific area for a period of 3 to 4 months.
These treatments have made it possible to smooth out facial lines without having any surgery. Because they are so effective, muscle relaxing injections have become the most popular doctor-administered cosmetic procedure in America and Europe.
Muscle relaxing injections are used for many different purposes. Chiefly, they are used to reduce facial lines which occur secondary to muscle action.
Botulinum toxin is a toxin and in extremely high doses can cause widespread muscle paralysis. However, the small doses that are used for aesthetic and medical purposes are entirely safe. The results of tretments are temporary and the effects reverse fully, usually after 3 to 4 months.
The level of satisfaction among patients who have muscle relaxing injections is very high. Our Dermatologists are experienced and skilled at giving muscle relaxing injections, as this requires a thorough knowledge of anatomy in order to get a natural result while minimising the risks of any side effects.
