FAQS ABOUT SKIN TREATMENTS
WHAT IS A MUSCLE RELAXANT TREATMENT?
The muscle relaxant we use is protein based and has been used for treating wrinkles since 1973. Small amounts of highly diluted muscle relaxant are injected into the muscle fibres that control facial features. When the tension is reduced the appearance of your wrinkles becomes less noticeable.
IS THE TREATMENT PAINFUL?
The treatment is quick and easy and only takes a few minutes. The product is dissolved in a sterile saline solution and is injected with a very thin needle into the muscle. You may experience a slight tingling sensation during the injection but an anaesthetic is not necessary.
HOW LONG DOES IT LAST? WILL IT BE PERMANENT?
Muscle relaxant treatments give no lasting results. The effect can be seen after three to five days and is at its peak after 14 days and remains for 3 to 6 months. At the end of this period, the treatment can be repeated. If repeated before the effect is completely gone, the effect will ultimately last longer.
WON’T MY WRINKLES GET WORSE WHEN IT WEARS OFF?
On the contrary. Muscle relaxants have both a therapeutic and preventative effect on wrinkles. If you stop it, the wrinkles will gradually become visible again just as they were before the treatment.
IS IT SAFE?
Muscle relaxants have been used safely in the medical world for many years. The muscle relaxant we used is approved by the FDA (Food and Drug Administration) in the United States and the long-term effects are well known. Despite its safety, it is very important that it be administered by a qualified physician.
