Muscle relaxing injections will temporarily numb the end of motor nerves that make muscles move. They’re an amazing treatment for softening wrinkles, caused by stress. When injected by a qualified and experienced practitioner, the eye area can be changed to give a sharp fresh appearance. The aim is to weaken muscles rather than paralyse them, leaving some facial expression, getting rid of wrinkles, or reducing them significantly.
At ALPHA we inject conservatively, reviewing results after 2 weeks to see if a top-up is required. The effects will start to wear off between 3 to 6 months after treatment. Wrinkles that return are far less severe as the muscles have been trained to relax. Area’s treated include eyes, forehead, and between the brows. Prices start at
