Antiwrinkle Injections
Muscle Relaxing Injections

Injectable muscle relaxants work by relaxing the facial muscles that contracts and cause wrinkles such as frown lines,forehead lines and lines around the eyes (crows feet).

The result is not permanent because the nerve ending re-establishes it’s signaling by forming new nerve sprouts. This sprouting takes approximately 3-6 months, at which point the muscle regains its activity and the wrinkles begin to reappear.

Injectable muscle relaxants work by relaxing the facial muscles that contracts and cause wrinkles such as frown lines, forehead lines and lines around the eyes (crows feet). Dr Ansulette Kay injects a purified protein into the muscles, which blocks the nerve signals that would normally make these muscles contract, resulting in a relaxed, youthful look. Fine lines will gradually smooth and ongoing treatments will help prevent wrinkles from forming again.

Dr Ansulette Kay will use a tiny needle to do the injections, which only take a few minutes, and will cause minimum discomfort. There are generally no recovery period, the risk of bruising and swelling is very low. The treatment will take effect over 3 to 5 days, with full results visible at 2 weeks. Results last at least 3 months if correct dose is used.

Treatment Areas

Forehead lines can be tricky to treat as the muscle responsible for causing these lines is also responsible for raising the eyebrows. This means that too much relaxation can cause the brow to drop, a complication that can be avoided by experienced injectors. Dr Ansulette Kay assesses patients very carefully to determine their risk, and if suitable for treatment, she will place the injections very carefully in order to relax the lines without compromising the position of the brow. Depending on the starting position of the brow, the result to aim for in some might be more of a ‘softening’ of the lines, rather than a completely ‘smooth’ look.

To achieve the best results without the brow looking or feeling ‘heavy’, Dr Ansulette Kay prefers to also treat the frown muscles, as well as the muscles under the eyebrow responsible for pulling the brow down, as this will allow the eyes to open up for a refreshed yet natural look.

Frown lines are caused by 3 powerful muscles pulling inwards and downwards. For many people frowning becomes a habit ( some people even frown in their sleep!) – causing lines that make them look worried and stressed even when they are not. Treating the frown with muscle relaxing injections can help to break the habit, and relaxing these muscles results in softening of the lines as well as slight elevation of the brow medially – giving a fresh and relaxed look.

The Orbicularis Occuli muscle around the eye is responsible for the wrinkles around our eyes when we squint or smile. Dr Ansulette Kay can carefully place injections around the eye to relax this muscle, which in turn relaxes the lines, and creates a fresh look.

Treatment for Specialized Areas​

The fine that develop over the bridge of nose as we squint (or in some people when they smile) can be prevented or relaxed with carefully placed injections on the nose

Carefully placed muscle relaxant injections on the jawline decrease the depressor effect (pulling down) of the platysma muscle and allows the skin to drape over the jaw bone in a more defined way.

Does your top lip lift too high when you smile? By carefully relaxing the muscle responsible for the lift we can achieve a more natural, less gummy smile.

Injections into prominent bands will relax them and soften the appearance of the neck.

The Depressor Anguli Oris muscle in the lower face is a powerful depressor that pulls the corner of the mouth down, and contributes to mouth corners turning down as we age. By relaxing this muscle we can slow this process and achieve a lifting effect.

Relaxing the mantalis muscle will improve the appearance of the mantal crease and prevent the popply chin look.

If you grind your teeth the chances are that you will have hypertrophy of the masseter muscle (you can feel this muscle by biting down on your teeth and feeling the corner of your jaw). Large masseters can lead to a more masculine look by creating a square facial shape. Carefully injecting muscle relaxants into the masseter muscles will prevent or decrease teeth grinding and reshape the face to achieve a more flattering oval appearance.
