The first fine lines appear around the outside corners of the eyes as a result of many smiles. They are known as crow’s feet and are followed by wrinkles on the forehead and between the eyebrows. As age advances, those lines become more visible and deeper. In this case, an effective solution is to inject a muscle relaxant, which relaxes the muscles and smooths the crow’s feet, the frown lines between the eyebrows and the horizontal lines across the forehead. The procedure restores your fresh youthful look and charming appearance.

More information

Muscle relaxants are synthesised and produced by a specific type of bacteria – Clostridium botulinum, which exist naturally in anaerobic environments. Several types of muscle relaxants are known, with type A the one mainly used for medically purposes and very rarely type B. Injecting minimal amounts directly into the muscle causes it to relax and smooths the skin. For aesthetic purposes, a very small amount of highly diluted muscle relaxant is injected into the appropriate muscle group. The neurotoxin blocks the transmission of nerve impulses from the neuron to the muscle fibre. This means the muscle remains in a lasting state of relaxation, i.e. does not contract.

Muscle relaxants can treat facial wrinkles caused by muscle contraction, but not by saggy skin. As age advances, wrinkles appear as a result of saggy skin too (elastosis), and they cannot be smoothed using a neurotoxin. The best results are achieved in the upper third of the face. Forehead lines and crow’s feet can be smoothed completely. Another bonus of injecting muscle relaxant is that it has been proven to relieve migraine attacks.

  • Injectable treatment

Recovery period

  • The patient should be upright for up to 5 hours after the procedure: straight or sitting. Placing the body in a horizontal position (lying down) is contraindicated. Massaging the treated areas is also inadvisable. The results become visible within 3 hours of the procedure. Even if rarely, the injection site may slightly redden, swell, bruise or become more sensitive, with those symptoms resolving entirely in the next few days.


  • Pregnancy
  • Breastfeeding
  • Use of certain medications
  • In some oncological diseases


No special preparations are necessary before the procedure. Clean skin is all that is required. The treatment areas are determined in advance at the dermatological examination. Anaesthesia is administered prior to the injectable procedure to ensure even patients with a low pain threshold are comfortable. A carefully measured amount of muscle relaxant is injected during the procedure.

Frequently asked questions:

The dermatologist determines where the filler should be inserted, taking into account the patient’s anatomical features. The procedure lasts around 20-30 minutes.

The filler is spread evenly in the cheekbone area, with the results visible immediately.

No recovery period is required for this procedure. Redness or swelling may appear at the injection site, but the discomfort passes quickly (a few hours to a few days).

The effect is visible immediately and lasts around a year.

The procedure can be repeated again after the filler’s full or partial degradation.

  • Hypersensitivity to various types of fillers;
  • Skin injury at the injection site.
