Facial muscle relaxants are used to improve dynamic wrinkles, such as frown lines, crow’s feet and forehead wrinkles. The products we carry are used to relax the muscles under the skin that cause wrinkles.

While the results are largely the same, there are differences between facial muscle relaxants at the chemical level.

Needs addressed

Facial Muscle Relaxants have been proven in clinical trials to significantly improve the appearance of frown lines, and they are also very effective at softening wrinkles around the eyes (crow’s feet) and across the forehead.


Because of how facial muscle relaxant injections work, these treatments are also very effective at preventing future wrinkles. Patients in their mid-to-late 20s can benefit from facial muscle relaxants as a preventative treatment whereas those in their 30s, 40s, 50s and older can also enjoy the wrinkle erasing properties of facial muscle relaxants.

Recovery from facial muscle relaxants is very quick. Patients can get injections over their lunch hour and return to work.

Course of treatment

The treatment is quick and easy, typically lasting between 10 and 15 minutes. Our experienced medical aesthetic professionals use a very fine needle to inject small amounts of liquid into the targeted muscles.


Are facial muscle relaxant treatments painful?

The pain associated with the injection is minimal. The needles used are very small and the injection is quick. Some patients compare the feeling to that of receiving a mosquito bite.

How long do the results of facial muscle relaxant injections last?

Results usually last anywhere from 3 to 4 months.

How long is the recovery period after facial muscle relaxant injections?

There is no downtime with facial muscle relaxants. Patients are fit to return to work immediately after treatment and can resume daily activities almost immediately.

How long will it take for me to notice results after facial muscle relaxant treatments? How long will the results last?

Results from facial muscle relaxant will appear in two to five days. Wrinkles continue to improve for up to 30 days, and results can last for up to four to six months. Typically a retreatment is scheduled every three to four months.

What happens if I choose not to continue facial muscle relaxant treatments?

If you stop getting facial muscle relaxant treatments, your wrinkles and lines will gradually return to the way they looked prior to treatments.

Will I lose my ability to make facial expressions after facial muscle relaxant injections?

Unfortunately, some celebrities have given facial muscle relaxant injections an undeserved reputation. As with everything else in life, too much of a good thing can be “bad”. The frozen, expressionless look sported by some stars is a result of too many units of facial muscle relaxant, and too many treatments in general.

In the hands of our experienced medical aesthetic professionals, the muscles that create negative expressions associated with negative emotions (like feeling mad, sad or stressed) will be relaxed, leaving you looking more relaxed and refreshed.
