Muscle Relaxing Injections London

Muscle relaxation treatments using injections are the most popular among non-surgical treatments for wrinkles and fine lines. Botulinum toxin, the main ingredient in these injections, can be used to treat all wrinkles associated with muscle movement, especially in the upper face, as well as some areas around the mouth, chin and neck.

Muscle relaxation treatments with injectables can be combined with other therapies, such as dermal fillers or Mesolift. All this is done to achieve comprehensive facial rejuvenation. Combining these procedures can give better results, as each works in a slightly different way, allowing for more complete and natural results.

How Do Muscle Relaxer Injections Work?

The process is relatively simple, but requires precision. A few drops of botulinum toxin are injected with a thin needle into the muscle that is responsible for wrinkles. This agent blocks the nerve impulses that stimulate the muscle, and as a result, the muscle relaxes. When the muscle stops contracting, the skin covering the muscle also relaxes and softens. After treatment, the wrinkles relax along with the muscle, while the surrounding untreated facial muscles contract as normal. As a result, facial expressions remain natural.

The benefits of muscle relax injection are visible within 5-12 days after treatment and last for 3-4 months, giving the face a smooth, rested look.
The effect usually lasts about 3-4 months before muscle activity gradually renews. It is recommended to return for further treatments at the first sign of muscle re-activation. Regular check-ups and maintenance of the treatment regimen will help maintain the results for longer.


Although Harley Street Aesthetics Ltd provides these treatments, it does not provide guarantees as to the longevity of the effects provided by the manufacturer. The duration of the effect depends on individual body response, lifestyle and genetic factors.

The quality of the muscle relaxation treatment by injection also depends on the skill and experience of the person performing the procedure. It is important that the specialist has a thorough understanding of the structure of the face and can accurately determine where the injections will be most effective. Inadequate administration of botulinum toxin can lead to unnatural results, such as a “frozen” face or uneven dispersion of the product. That’s why it’s crucial to always turn to an experienced, qualified aesthetic medical professional.


Although Botox is a toxic substance, it is safe if used properly and under medical supervision. Dosage is key. Too high a dose can lead to serious health problems, but properly administered it is perfectly safe. It is worth noting, however, that like any medical procedure, muscle relaxer injections can have some side effects, such as bruising, swelling or a feeling of slight discomfort at the injection site. These symptoms are usually temporary and disappear after a few days.
The advantage of muscle relaxing injections is that they are less invasive and have a shorter recovery period than plastic surgery. In addition, the effects are reversible, meaning that if the patient is not satisfied with the results, wrinkles and lines will gradually return to their pre-treatment state.

Nevertheless, it is necessary to repeat treatments as the effects begin to fade. The manufacturer claims that the effects last about 3-4 months, but this may depend on the individual characteristics of the patient. In practice, it is recommended to repeat the treatment at the first sign of muscle re-activation in order to maintain the optimal effect.

We prepare a personalized treatment plan for each patient, which is developed during the consultation and is constantly updated to account for changes in the patient’s expectations or needs.


Before the procedure, the patient should avoid aspirin and other blood-thinning medications, as they can increase the risk of bruising or hematoma formation at the injection site. It is also advisable to avoid alcohol and heavy exercise for a few days before the procedure.

After treatment, it is important to avoid massaging or touching the treated area, which could spread the product beyond the intended area. It is also recommended to avoid intense exercise, saunas or hot baths for 24 hours after treatment.
Patients are advised to return to their normal routine after treatment and observe the effects over the next few days. Patience is the key – the effects become visible after about 5-12 days.

If after this time the patient is not satisfied with the results or has any concerns, they should contact our team of specialists to discuss next steps.
