The purpose of cosmetic muscle relaxant injections is to give a natural-looking refreshed appearance, with a reduction in lines and wrinkles.
Injectables are safe. The original brand of anti-wrinkle injections has been used for medical conditions like muscular sclerosis for over 60 years. Doctors then noticed its value in treating patients with overactive muscles, and as such it was found to be very successful in treating children with cerebral palsy and lines and wrinkles in adults. At Skin Alert we use high quality, clinically proven muscle relaxants.
It generally takes 3 to 10 days after treatment for the maximum results to fully develop. Re-treatment should not occur within this period. We also provide an anti-wrinkle injection that kicks in as quickly as 2 days. The effects generally last 3 to 4 months, although with regular treatments it may be possible to reduce the dosage. The treatment may be less effective for people over 60 due to poorer muscle tone.
Anti-wrinkle injections work by interfering with the nerve signal to the muscle and is fully degraded by the body after 3-4 months. The advantage of being a temporary relaxant ensures that permanent side effects are extremely rare, and, allows for the treatment to be tailored to the patient as they age naturally.
Patients undergo pre-treatment photos to track the effectiveness of the treatment. All injection sites and amounts used are documented and scanned onto your medical file.
We are a professional medical establishment with a Doctor on site at all times. Other clinics may not have a Doctor in house but still charge a premium price for injectables. Our prices reflect quality work performed or overseen by our Doctor, Dr Candler.
