Treatment is not permanent; usually the tiny muscles start working again after about 3 to 6 months, and then you can choose if you wish to repeat the treatment.
This treatment is simple, quick, safe and should usually take no longer than 10 - 15 minutes. You can resume your normal activities immediately after the procedure (many people have their treatment during their lunch-break).
Does it hurt and what could go wrong?
Most patients find that muscle relaxants cause little discomfort, however a few patients may feel pain and prefer to have a local anaesthetic cream applied prior to treatment to help numb the skin.
There are a few uncommon minor side effects which will be explained and also the extremely remote possibility of a serious problem. All patients should remember that because the results of muscle relaxants are not permanent, any unwanted effects will disappear usually within a 3 month period.

Muscle Relaxants (Botox)
Post-treatment advice may include:
It is important that you follow Jolanta’s advice carefully after a muscle relaxant treatment. This will help you to gain maximum effect from the procedure and reduce the risk of complications.
About muscle relaxants
Relax the tiny muscles in the skin through prescription only medication,
reducing wrinkles such as “crow’s feet” and frown lines. Your treatment will be
precisely directed to the area concerned, leaving other facial muscles moving
Sometimes an even better result can be obtained by plumping the underlying
tissue with other suitable treatments. Response to botulinum injection varies
from person to person, so all patients are encouraged to return for a free
post-treatment check-up after 14 days.
What happens during the treatment?
At your first visit, a detailed consultation with Jolanta (our registered Aesthetic Nurse Practitioner and prescriber) will give you a clear understanding of what can be achieved and how. Jolanta will explain how treatments will benefit you and what you can expect.
A medical history will be taken to make sure that there are no reasons why you are not suited to be treated with muscle relaxants. If you choose to go ahead, you will be asked to sign a consent form indicating that you have understood how the treatment works and potential side effects.
“Before and after” photographs will be taken to show you how your treatment has worked.
