Muscle relaxing injections can be used to relax muscles of the face or to treat excessive sweating (the medical term for this is hyperhidrosis). These are 2 very different distinct treatments and Be Aesthetic Clinic offer both these treatments.
Muscle relaxing Injections are used to smooth away lines and wrinkles by stopping muscle activity. Lines visibly start to soften in 3-5 days and continue to do so for up to 3-4 weeks. The duration of each treatment can last on average between 3-4 months. It can be used to open up the eyes and smooth away facial lines. It can sometimes be used to lift areas of the face. If you have deep static lines, treatments are recommended every 12 weeks initially, but can then be further apart once improvement is made. If lines are not visible or quite fine then fewer treatments may be required and of course it all depends on what you want to achieve.
If you are considering this treatment then there are a number of things you should know.
Muscle relaxing injections sometimes referred to as Botox™ is a prescription only drug. You must have a face to face consultation with a prescriber before you can have this treatment. A prescription is then issued and it is delivered to clinic for your treatment to take place. I get many enquiries from people requesting treatment on the same day and it is just not possible. Only doctors are allowed to carry stocks of botulinum toxin and they can treat on the same day.
Muscle relaxing injections work wonderfully for smoothing lines and wrinkles but it is not the panacea or cure for all lines and wrinkles, there are areas of the face that we can’t treat and some facial lines and wrinkles that they will not have any effect on. That said it will help and works very well in treating the upper face, forehead lines, frown lines and crows feet. It works by stopping muscle activity and then allowing lines and wrinkles which are in the skin rather than the muscle to heal.
Excessive sweating can cause much embarrassment when it happens and is not associated with exercise, it can occur spontaneously in affected individuals. It can have a huge impact on people that suffer with this in their daily life and jobs. Muscle relaxing injections are used to treat the sweat glands in the skin rather than the muscles, and can literally be used on any area of the body where excessive sweating takes place, scalps, foreheads, lips, back of necks, backs, underarms and palms. Occasionally I will need to carry out a test to determine the area that requires treatment and the size of the area governs the cost. As with all treatments carried out in clinic a full medical history is taken, it is important to rule out any underlying disease which may be the cause of the sweating and sometimes referral is made back to your general practitioner before any treatments can be carried out. It generally works well and often lasts for about 6 -12 months.

Delighted with my fantastic results , not only is Bev a lovely person and put me at ease. She is very professional and knows her stuff. Thank you, gr8 experience x
Confidential and professional service with a warm and friendly atmosphere to put you completely at ease .
This was my first consultation with Bev. I found Bev to be very friendly, courteous and knowledgeable. Her background as a senior nurse shows. She tailored her advice to suit my skin problem, lifestyle and personality. No pressure and certainly no hard-sell on anything. A consummate professional — highly recommended!
Bev is exceptionally professional taking into account your personal preferences. Her caring nature and obvious passion and knowledge puts you at ease throughout the procedure. I can not recommend Bev enough.
Bev was extremely down to earth and helpful. I was very insecure after losing weight and getting older as my lips were thinning out. Bev knew what I wanted and took the time to listen and talk me through my options. I was more than happy with the results and gave me the confidence I needed to be proud of my looks again. Bev was down to earth and understanding – a real treasure of the cosmetic surgery industry.
Absolutely brilliant facial to have, my skin can be sensitive but this wasn’t an issue for me. My skin was so clean smooth and fresh looking. Bev Kelly did an excellent job by explaining in detail each process and keeping my needs paramount, what a star!
