There are two different types of wrinkles, static and dynamic wrinkles. Static wrinkles are those that can be seen all the time while dynamic wrinkles are only visible during facial expression. Muscle relaxing injections are more effective on dynamic wrinkles, as the injected product blocks signals form the nerves to the muscles, meaning the injected muscle can’t contract. This is how dynamic wrinkles soften and relax. For static wrinkles, however, we offer another type of treatment (dermal fillers) along with muscle relaxing injections. The most common areas for muscle relaxing injections are frown lines, forehead wrinkles and crow’s feet as these are the most prominent areas of the face that are affected by facial muscle contractions. If treated earlier you can prevent or delay the appearance of scar lines, keeping your skin appear younger for longer.
