Treatments WITH MUSCLE RELAXANT
The ageing of skin is a natural process, the first traces of which are visible in the face. This process affects not only the superficial skin layers, but also the subcutis, the deeper tissues and the surrounding musculature. Particularly when the wrinkles are deeply ingrained in the skin, it can be very helpful to use a filler as a cushion for the wrinkles. This way the wrinkles are lifted up and the skin appears more even. At M1 Schlossklinik, we will gladly advise you individually and in detail how you can look as young as you feel by utilising the highest quality brand- name products.
For more than two decades muscle relaxants have been used to treat muscle-related wrinkles incosmetic surgery. A bacterial protein, that affects the musculature of the region with wrinkles, is used in order to paralyse the area for a period of time. Thus the existing wrinkles are smoothed out or disappear entirely, and new wrinkles generated by the same causeare not allowed to form.
The classic areas for anti-wrinkle treatments with muscle relaxants are predominantly in the upper third of the face.
These muscle relaxants can also be used in the treatment of excessive sweating in the underarm area and as a therapy for migraines or jaw problems.
As the skin ages, it can lose its firmness and become wrinkled and loose. This can cause asymmetry or changes in facial expressions.
An eyebrow lift is designed to change the eyebrows’ appearance, as well as to rectify any asymmetry.
The outer eye muscles, or the hood that covers the eye socket, can sometimes allow eyebrows to droop. By softening these muscles with a muscle relaxant,these muscles will be less constricted. With the eyebrow lift procedure,it is possible to reduce this constriction of the eye and eyebrow areas.
With an eyebrow lift, the eyebrows can be raised up as much as three millimetres, yielding a face that appears more awake and eyes that appear larger.
Over five million people suffer with excessive sweat production, or hyperhidrosis, and there are now various treatment options to counteract this type of sweating.
What are the different types of hyperhidrosis?
In general there are two types of hyperhidrosis: generalised and focused.
General hyperhidrosis most often affects the breast, neck and facial areas, whereas focused hyperhidrosis is confined to the armpits, hands and soles of the feet.
How can hyperhidrosis be treated?
Depending on the type and intensity of the sweating, there is a choice between surgical and non-surgical treatments. One very effective method involves the injection of a muscle relaxant. This blocks the sweat glands so that they can no longer reach the nerve endings. In the case of intense sweating, the removal of sweat glands by one of our qualified doctors is recommended.
What happens after treatment?
Possible side effects such as redness, small bruises, sensitivity to pressure swelling or minor numbness in the fingers are usually of short duration and go away on their own. The treated area should be iced for a few hours, and a mild painkiller can be taken as needed. Daily activities will minimally impacted, but exercise and saunas should be avoided for a few days.
Arrange for your complimentary consultation appointment at your M1 Schlossklinik location and put an end to excessive sweating.

How will the treatment be carried out?
After an extensive explanation is given by our experienced and highly qualified specialised doctors regarding the various substances and the areas of treatment, the muscle relaxant will be injected. This will be done with precise injections and very fine needles, so that the treatment is virtually pain free.
What do I need to be aware of after the procedure?
Immediately after the treatment you are able to resume normal activities, but in most cases the effects of the treatment can be seen after about two or three days. The maximum effect of treatment is evident after one to two weeks and will generally last for about four to six months. After this point, the treatment can be repeated as desired.
Long-term side effects from muscle relaxants are not to be expected since the substance can be completely biologically broken down by the body.
Please note that for several days after treatment saunas, excessive sun exposure and solariums, as well as sports activities should be avoided in order to achieve perfect results!
