How do Muscle Relaxant Injections Work?

Muscle relaxant injections are products that prevent hyperactive facial muscles from receiving messages from the nerves. Since the muscle does not contract this can help to smooth out small wrinkles and fine lines in the face.

Muscle relaxant injections are considered temporary cosmetic procedures, and the results are not permanent. Treatment may be needed again in the future. There are some possible risks involved, and the cosmetic plastic surgeon that you choose should outline the risks and the possible benefits involved.

Who Can Benefit From These Cosmetic Procedures?

You can receive great results from muscle relaxant injections if you are in good health and you have small wrinkles and fine lines that you want to minimize or even eliminate. Each case is different and unique and a cosmetic physician can discuss the desired cosmetic procedures and there expected outcomes with you.

How Much do Muscle Relaxant Injections cost?

Muscle relaxant injections are usually charged at a standard price per unit of product. The number of units required will alter the cost, and is influenced by the area being treated and the strength of the underlying muscle.

What Should I Expect After Having Muscle Relaxant Injections?

There is generally little to no down time after receiving Muscle Relaxant Injections. You can usually go back to your normal daily activities. You may have some discomfort and irritation for a few days, however this is usually minor.
