"After 38 years of mental abuse, I had finally found the courage to leave my marriage. My self-esteem was non existent. I read an article in Tatler magazine about Dr Rita Rakus and decided I would try Botox® and Restylane. The results have been super. I am now happy to face the world on my own, feeling confident and self assured. I have since had treatments to take away fat pouches from my chin. This has also been a great success. Thank you, Dr Rita Rakus".

What is Muscle relaxing injection?

  • Muscle relaxing injection is a natural purified protein.
  • Muscle relaxing injection relaxes wrinkle-causing muscles.
  • Muscle relaxing injection creates a smoothed, rejuvenated appearance.

When injected into a muscle:

  • Muscle relaxing injection temporarily blocks the chemical signals that make the muscle contract.
  • Only minute quantities of Muscle relaxing injection are injected.
  • Only the injected muscle will be affected.

Example:

Is Muscle relaxing injection safe?

  • Muscle relaxing injection has an excellent safety profile.
  • Muscle relaxing injection is used in a variety of therapeutic areas. It is one of the few treatments that can be given to treat children over 2 years of age to treat cerebral palsy.
    Doses often exceed those around twenty times the average cosmetic dose!
  • Muscle relaxing injection has been actively used for over 10 years in tens of thousands of patients worldwide. There are over 20 different licenses in over 70 countries worldwide.
  • Muscle relaxing injection has US FDA and European approval (including France and Switzerland). Muscle relaxing injection has recently received a cosmetic licence here in the UK and for this use, doctors may prescribe another by name but which exactly the same as Muscle relaxing injection but comes in a smaller vial.

How does Muscle relaxing injection work?

A tiny amount of Muscle relaxing injection is injected into the hyperactive muscles, which blocks the nerve impulse from reaching these muscles. The muscle simply relaxes or ‘goes to sleep’. This relaxation enables the skin to relax and the lines smooth away.

What happens during a Muscle relaxing injection treatment?

Your doctor will ask you to frown or smile to assess your muscle movement and then determine the injection site to achieve the best results for you.

Muscle relaxing injection is then administered by several tiny injections, which feels like a pin prick.

Normally no anaesthetic is required, but topical anaesthetic cream can be applied if you wish.

You can return to work or day to day activities immediately, but will be asked to follow post treatment guidelines.

Are there any side effects from a Muscle relaxing injection treatment?

Side effects are rare and normally resolve within a very short time, but the most common ones are:

  • Bruising at the site of injection
  • Ptosis (droop) of the muscle
  • Headache.

NB: This usually resolves within a few days. Interestingly, Muscle relaxing injection is a recognized treatment for headaches as it helps relax the muscles that are associated with headaches.

When will Muscle relaxing injection start to work?

From 2 -7 days in most patients, but some can take up to 14 days to see the full effect.

How long will my Muscle relaxing injection treatment last?

Results can last from 3 to 4 months following initial treatment. Subsequent Muscle relaxing injection treatments can last much longer, but this does vary in individual patients. It is, however, widely accepted that after the first year or so you may need less frequent visits eg. only twice

Will my lines look worse if I do not continue my treatment?

No. Should you discontinue treatment your lines will gradually revert to their pre-treatment appearance.

SUMMARY

A Muscle relaxing injection treatment:

  • Is a simple non-surgical treatment
  • Smoothes out lines
  • Takes approximately 10 minutes to perform
  • Involves a few tiny pin prick injections – the needle is as fine as a human hair
  • Relaxes the overactive muscle, reducing lines and wrinkles
  • Results are visible within days
  • The aesthetic effect normally last 3 to 4 months or longer
