Muscle Relaxants Q & A

Long winter months and stress: They’re unavoidable in most places. While we can’t change the weather or eliminate your stressors, simple treatments with Dysport® or BOTOX® Cosmetic at Jarvis Family Medical Medispa can reduce the wrinkles they leave behind, such as frown lines and crow’s feet.

How They Work

Dysport and Botox contain a purified form of botulinum toxin A, meaning there’s no botulism risk when used properly. They work by blocking the nerves that contract muscles, softening the appearance of wrinkles. These muscle relaxant injections cause the injected muscles to “relax” so that they no longer contract (squeezing out tiny amounts of precious collagen and hyaluronic acid) and cause lines and wrinkles to form. Muscle relaxant injections also block nerve impulses from the nerve to the tiny facial muscles that are directly related to expression lines. After treatment, the skin overlying the treated area becomes smooth and unwrinkled. Muscle relaxants are most effective on wrinkles that have not quite set, that is, dynamic wrinkles that appear while you are moving your face, such as when you frown.
