Muscle relaxing injections for fine line and wrinkle reduction
Many clients visit Elixir Cosmetics in London seeking muscle relaxing injections, but there is often some confusion as to what these clever injectable anti-ageing treatments can really offer.
Unlike dermal fillers and volumisers – which are forms of anti-ageing injectable treatment designed to plump the skin and fill creases in the skin – muscle relaxing injections are used to freeze existing lines, as well as reducing new wrinkles from forming.
Commonly – but incorrectly – called Botox® (which is actually a brand of muscle relaxing injection product, rather than a treatment) muscle relaxing injections are non-surgical and widely available. At Elixir Cosmetics we offer Botox Cosmetic as our wrinkle relaxing injectable of choice.
What are the benefits of muscle relaxing injections specifically?
- Non-invasive (no surgery is required)
- Painless when used with a topical anaesthetic
- No downtime required; you can head straight back to work
- Results last 6-9 months
- There are very few risks or side effects associated with muscle relaxing injections
- Treatment time is quick
Unlike dermal fillers, wrinkle reduction injections do not fill or plump the skin; they are not used for volume restoration, nor can they be used to augment the lips or nose in other aesthetic treatments. However, unique to muscle relaxing injections is the host of other cosmetic and medical uses for the product.
Other uses for Botox® Cosmetic
Did you know that the same substance used to freeze facial muscles resulting in the reduction of new wrinkles forming can also be used to relieve excessive sweating? Injected in to the hands or armpits, these injections can prevent embarrassing conditions such as excessive sweating in just one treatment.
Versatile to say the least, muscle relaxing injections can also be used for a variety of medical reasons, making them one of the most widely accepted methods of treatment by both medical and aesthetic experts alike.
