WHAT ARE MUSCLE RELAXANT INJECTIONS?

Muscle relaxant, also known as anti-wrinkle injections in Melbourne, are a simple and common procedure at Dermal Distinction. They are a purified TGA-listed pharmaceutical that is injected in small, precise volumes to relax the muscle. This will reduce the muscle thickness and skin wrinkles in the treated area.

HOW LONG DO ANTI-WRINKLE INJECTIONS TAKE TO WORK?

You may notice the results in just 2-3 days, but they can take 14 days for the full effect, and the effect typically last for approximately 4 months, however individual results vary.

WHAT CAN ANTI-WRINKLE INJECTIONS TREAT?

Crow’s Feet

Lines around the eyes are commonly referred to as crow’s feet. They often form as small creases when you smile, however, can extend laterally and eventually spread down to the cheek area.

Frown Lines

Frown lines or the dreaded number ‘11’ between the eyebrows can often make you look mad or stressed if they are present at rest.

Forehead Lines

Forehead lines result from overactivity of the ‘frontalis’ muscle, which works to elevate the eyebrow and is one of the most commonly used muscles of facial expression.

SUITABLE FOR
Smoothing lines caused by smiling, raising the brows and frowning. The face will look refreshed.

Nefertiti Lift

NEFERTITI-MUSCLE-RELAXANT

WHAT IS A NEFERTITI LIFT?
There is a large muscle that covers the neck and jawline called the Platysma. Each time we lift our heard or grimace, this muscle is activated and pulls down on the corners of the face. This helps gravity to pull the face down over time.
By using anti-wrinkle injections over the neck bands and jaw line, the jaw line is sharpened and the face is lifted. The effect is subtle, but over time, helps to reducing the downward pull of the face.

WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF THE NEFERTITI LIFT?

To achieve the best possible results with a Nefertiti Lift, other muscles can also be treated with anti-wrinkle medicine to help raise the corners of the mouth and improve the skin texture of the chin. Dermal Fillers can also be used in the jawline and chin region to further improve the overall shape of the face.

The Nefertiti Lift has become very popular in some Asian countries where a more triangular-shaped face have become desirable. While the Nefertiti Lift can last for up to six months and beyond only certain parts of the treatment may have to be repeated and the duration of the effect usually increases with as treatments are repeated.

Lower face contouring, to improve the definition of the jaw line

Brow Lift

BROW-LIFT-MUSCLE-RELAXANT

WHAT IS A BROW LIFT?
A anti-wrinkle brow lift is a procedure when you give a temporary lift to the eyebrows through strategic use of a muscle relaxant injections. By using the injectable to relax the muscles that drag the brows down, the upward-pulling muscle of the forehead can lift, reducing the heaviness of the brows. This will cause a physical lift of the brows for as long as the pharmaceutical remains active, usually between 12-14 weeks.

WHO ARE THE BEST CANDIDATES FOR A BROW LIFT?

When we perform a brow lift, we expect the tail of the brow to rise by 1-3mm. It is not a replacement for a surgical blepharoplasty, but can definitely be used to take away some of the heaviness of the brow.

WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS?

Anyone is a candidate for a Brow lift. The amazing — and annoying — thing about anti-wrinkle treatments is that it's not permanent. You can try it, and if you don't like it, don't do it again. If you decide the procedure is right for you, it takes all of 30 seconds to complete, and doesn't result in any bruising or downtime (though there may be some initial redness or small bumps at the injection site, which is completely normal).

SUITABLE FOR
Anyone wanting an arched brow, and lift in the eyebrow.

Facial Slimming & Grinding

FACIAL-SLIMMING-MUSCLE-RELAXANT

WHAT IS MASSETER REDUCTION ?
Masseter reduction or jawline slimming for both treatment of teeth grinding and also for the cosmetic purpose of slimming the lower face. It is a simple and effective treatment involving the injection of wrinkle relaxers into the large masseter muscles of the jaw.

WHAT DOES JAWLINE SLIMMING INVOLVE?

The use of muscle relaxant injections (or anti-wrinkle injections) is not just for the relaxation of lines of facial expression and wrinkles.
A popular procedure is the use of muscle relaxant injections to reduce the size of the masseter muscles of the jaw. This is a common and extremely effective treatment for teeth grinding, or bruxism.

WHAT ARE THE MASSETER MUSCLES LARGE?

Many people have hypertrophic masseter muscles, either as part of their normal anatomy; or these muscles may be enlarged by excessive teeth grinding or clenching, known as bruxism.
With overuse from habitual teeth grinding, the masseter muscles become larger and over developed. Over time this alters the shape of the lower face, creating a square jaw line.


SUITABLE FOR
Patients that grind or clench their teeth, and an occlusal splint is unsuitable.

Gummy Smile

GUMMY-SMILE-MUSCLE-RELAXANT

IS THERE TOO MUCH GUM SHOWING?
Some people feel their gums are overly prominent whenever they smile. This is referred to as a ‘gummy smile'. It is sometimes caused by a hypermobile lip or a short upper lip. It can also be caused by a certain type of ‘bite’ (tooth and jaw locations)
Excessive gum visibility during smiling can sometimes divert attention away from a beautiful set of teeth. “Too much gum showing” during a smile might also draw attention to uneven teeth.

WHAT OPTIONS ARE THERE FOR GUMMY SMILE?

At Dermal Distinction, we will discuss your particular circumstances with you. Some patients need referral to an orthodontist to move the teeth. Others require gum lengthening laser trimming, to improve the appearance of the smile.
The use of muscle relaxant injections is quick, and is a perfect temporary solution for patients that display too much gum.

SUITABLE FOR
Patients that have uneven lip rise, or too much gum display on smiling.

The effectiveness of anti-wrinkle injections has been well established and supported by medical evidence, with use spanning back to the 1970s.

Our approach

As individuals, we all have different reasons for wanting to change the way we look and ultimately the way we feel.
The muscles of the face allow us to express a range of emotions such as happiness, sadness and anger. And we don't want to change your ability to express yourself. We recognise that our clients want to look softer, not 'frozen'. They prefer to look healthy, rather than 'worked on'. And finally they want to glow, not look 'fake'. Our cosmetic injectors work as a team to achieve a result that is natural looking. We are known for our results for Cosmetic Injections in Melbourne.
After treatment, we will book a follow up appointment to assess your treatment. This is important to make sure you are happy with your result.

For your safety, all our injectables are TGA listed.

Frequently asked questions


  • + What is a muscle relaxant injection?

    Muscle relaxant injections, have a few names: Anti-wrinkle injections, wrinkle relaxers, muscle relaxers and so on. They all refer to the same class of pharmaceuticals. Due to TGA restrictions, we cannot mention the drug names or ingredients here. However muscle relaxant injections are a purified protein that act to limit the nerve being able to "ask" the muscle to contract. The less movement in the muscle, the smoother the skin becomes over time.

  • + How is a muscle relaxant injection different to dermal filler?

    Muscle relaxant injections have only one action: Reduction of the muscle contraction. This indirectly affects the skin by making it smoother, creating less lines and wrinkles.
    Dermal filler creates hydration and volume. Dermal filler is more powerful, as it creates volume, the skin of the face is rewrapped, creating youthful curves, enhancing features that have become flattened, and hydrating the skin to give it glow.
    Both work very well when we are rejuvenating the face.

  • + I am scared of looking frozen. Can I have micro-treatment?

    We rarely freeze a face. Most of our patients want to look refreshed, but natural. We aim for this result too. Our treatments are always based around creating lift and relaxation that is almost undetectable. This is the true artistry of cosmetic injections at Dermal Distinction.

  • + What kind of treatments can you do?

    Muscle relaxants are very versatile. We can smooth skin when treating the frown, forehead and crow's feet.
    We can create lift when undertaking a brow lift or Nefertiti lift.
    We can relax and slim the face when undertaking treatment for clenching and grinding teeth.
    The best option is to speak to us, we will make recommendations for you, and work with you to achieve your desired result.
