Anti-Wrinkle Treatments

Wrinkle treatments with muscle relaxant

Skin aging is a natural process of which the first signs can be seen mainly on the face. However, not only the superficial skin, but also the subcutis, the retaining ligaments and the muscles are affected by this process. Especially when the wrinkle has already embossed deeper into the skin, it can be very useful to pad the wrinkle with a suitable filling material. This raises the wrinkle and makes the skin appear more even.

In most cases, increased development of wrinkles is genetically caused or a consequence of negative environmental influences. These include a unsteady lifestyle, alcohol, little sleep, too much stress and nicotine.

Treatment with muscle relaxant - methods, results & costs

For more than two decades, muscle relaxants have been used in aesthetic surgery for the treatment of muscular wrinkles. This is a bacterial protein that paralyses the muscles around the region of the treated wrinkles for a certain period of time. Thus the existing wrinkles are smoothed or disappear completely and new wrinkles caused by facial expressions cannot develop. Classical areas for the wrinkle injections with muscle relaxants are mainly in the upper third of the face.

The muscle relaxant can also be used against excessive sweating in the armpits and in therapy against migraine or chewing.

After a thourough consulation with our experienced and highly qualified doctors about the various substances and the regions in which they are used, the muscle relaxant is injected. The treatment is performed with precisely calibrated syringes and very thin needles, so that the treatment is virtually painless.

You are immediately socially fit after the treatment. In most cases, however, the treatment effect only occurs after about 2 to 3 days. The maximum effect is achieved after about 1 to 2 weeks and usually lasts about 4 – 6 months. The treatment with muscle relaxants can then be repeated if desired.

Long-term side effects from muscle relaxants are not to be expected, as the substances are completely biodegraded in the body.

Please note that you should refrain from sauna, excessive sunshine and solarium as well as sports activities for a few days after the treatment in order to achieve a perfect result!
