Muscle relaxing injections, how Does it work?

Wrinkles, creases and fine lines form from two influences environmental damage and the constant creasing of the skin of the face as the muscles of our face move the skin, with time repeated movement allows folds or creases to develop as the underlining structure of the skin becomes damaged.  Stopping or reducing the movement allows the skin the opportunity to rest, repair or prevent further damage.  We use small amounts of muscles freezing medicine injected into specific facial muscle sites to temporarily control muscles moving the skin of the face.  It is important to inject into the right muscles and this is where the training of a dentist helps to prevent or manage adverse results.

Facial Muscle Relaxants Post-Treatment Instructions:

Facial Muscle Relaxants Post-Treatment Instructions:

You may have bruises in the areas treated with Muscle Relaxants. This is normal. It will take up to two weeks for you to experience the full effect of the Muscle Relaxant treatment. Remain patient. It takes time for the muscles to lose strength and the lines to fade following Muscle Relaxants treatments. Movement of lines diminished is OK. The objective of the Muscle Relaxants treatment is to improve the appearance of the lines, not necessarily paralyze the muscle. If I can achieve the improvement of the lines without complete paralysis in the area then you benefit from continued use of subtle facial expression in that area of your face.

It is best to try to avoid exercising your treated muscles for 12 hours after treatment (e.g. practice frowning, raising your eyebrows, or squinting). This helps to work Muscle Relaxants into your muscles. Although thought to help, it will NOT impact your treatment negatively if you forget to do this.
