Wrinkle treatment may be used to prevent frowning i.e. to stop the “corrugator” muscles from drawing the eyebrows together. It can also be used to reduce other overactive facial expressions such as excessive brow-raising or scrunching up of the crows’ feet. As the muscles are selectively targeted, there is no danger of being expressionless.

This type of treatment can be used to treat a wide variety of health problems and is also used to treat hemifacial spasms also known as facial spasms. Its cosmetic applications are more recent. Currently, it is also being used to allow sufferers of cerebral palsy more freedom of movement (as the problem here is the excessive tone in the muscles).

In cosmetic medicine, it can help with:

  • Temporary smoothing of facial lines and wrinkles
  • Relieving jaw pain due to teeth grinding and clenching
  • Excessive sweating (hyperhidrosis)
  • Changing the balance of the action of certain muscles, for instance to elevate eyebrows.

Is it safe?

You should not have this treatment if you are pregnant or breastfeeding.  Your doctor will discuss fully with you whether you are suitable for treatment.

Does it hurt? How long does a treatment take?

There may be some stinging momentarily and the whole procedure usually takes less than half an hour.

How long until I see results?

The relaxing effect is not instantaneous. It starts after 2-3 days and increases over the next 10-14 days.

How long does it last?

Results are seen within 1-3 weeks and can last up to 12 months, although for most common indications treatment is done every 3-4 months.

Are there are any side-effects?

The most common side effects are pain, swelling, or bruising.

The most significant complication would be if other muscles than those intended were affected as they would also be relaxed. This is best avoided by the patient actively frowning during the procedure so the appropriate muscle can be identified.

How do I care for my skin following treatment?

Do not rub or massage the treated area for at least 4 hours. It is recommended that you avoiding having any facials, acupuncture, massages or other treatments over the treated area for one week.
