If you aren’t sure whether you want to undergo cosmetic surgery to achieve your desired result, then another option you could explore is having muscle relaxing injections, such as the well-known Botox or Dysport.
What do muscle relaxing injections treat?
Botox and Dysport are both particularly good for reducing facial wrinkles to produce a smoother and more youthful complexion. Specifically, Botulinum toxin will reduce the action of underlying facial muscles, which in turn smooths the overlying skin.
You may be better served by opting for a cosmetic procedure such as a brow lift or face lift to achieve certain results. All options can be discussed with you during a detailed consultation.
Where on my face/body can I have muscle relaxing injections?
The most common areas to have this style of injection are:
- Vertical frown lines (between the eyes)
- Across the forehead
- Crows feet around the eyes
- Neck (treats longitudinal platysma bands)
- Armpit (reduces sweating)
How long will this treatment last?
The effect of muscle relaxing injections will wear off after a few months, so you will need to repeat the procedure after four or five months. If you continue to use the injections, then the effects can actually last for up to six months, giving you longer between top up appointments. If used repeatedly, Botox can even have a preventative, long term effect on reducing the appearance of facial lines.
