Anti-wrinkle treatment is becoming so popular these days and the demand for this treatment is not showing any signs of slowing down. If you are new to this treatment , make sure you read the below to sort out the facts for the myths!
Myth 1 : Muscle relaxants can erase all my wrinkles
FACT : There are two types of wrinkles: Dynamic wrinkles (wrinkles which only show when doing certain facial expressions such as frowning /raising eyebrows / smiling) and static/resting wrinkles that are permanently on our face regardless of facial expression. Muscle relaxants treat dynamic wrinkles by relaxing the muscle thus improving the appearance of these wrinkles. Static wrinkles on the other hand do not respond as well to muscle relaxants but treatment does stop these lines from getting any deeper.
Myth 2 : Muscle relaxants are only for your wrinkles
FACT : Muscle relaxants not only help with your wrinkles but they can assist with migraines, clenching of the jaw, slimming of the jawline and excessive sweating in the underarms.
Myth 3: Muscle relaxants are only used for aesthetic reasons
FACT: Muscle relaxants have been treated for medical conditions well before it became an aesthetic procedure!! These include cerebral palsy, eyelid muscle spasms, chronic migraine, cervical dystonia, overactive bladder, excessive underarm sweating and limb spasticity.
