Wrinkle treatment at montis medical

Our facial expressions express a variety of feelings, such as happiness, anger, boredom, rage and sadness. Over time, these expressions leave their mark on the face. The result is frown lines, frown lines, frown lines or wrinkles around the eyes. These wrinkles become deeper and deeper due to permanent or repeated tensing of the facial muscles. In addition, the skin's elasticity decreases with age and the effect of gravity increases the appearance of wrinkles. To counteract this, the use of muscle relaxants helps. Muscle relaxant allows many to achieve a more youthful appearance and significantly reduce the appearance of wrinkles. The targeted application of muscle relaxant relaxes the facial muscles, smoothing out existing wrinkles and preventing the appearance of new expression lines. As a result, many people achieve a rejuvenated and refreshed appearance.

What is muscle relaxant?

Muscle relaxant is a highly effective prescription medication that is only used in our practice by trained doctors. It is a protein that is extracted from a bacterium. This active ingredient inhibits the transmission of stimuli to the muscles, reduces skin contractions and causes them to relax. This smoothes wrinkles so that they are no longer visible. The safety and efficacy of muscle relaxants for aesthetic medicine have been well studied and researched. In 65 studies, 15,000 participants were evaluated accordingly, with the result that the active ingredient effectively smoothes wrinkles on the face and adverse effects are rare.

Muscle relaxant in esthetics

This safe and effective active ingredient has been used successfully in aesthetic medicine for many years. This applies to the following areas of application:


  • Crow's feet
  • Forehead crease
  • Frown line
  • Teeth grinding
  • Migraine
  • Hyperhidrosis / sweat gland treatment


The constant activity of mimic facial muscles causes them to dig into the overlying skin. Reducing muscle contraction leads to relaxation under the skin. This relieves the permanent tension in the face and a loss of elasticity can be avoided. Muscle relaxants also serve as a preventative measure, so that treatment can be carried out even if wrinkles are only slightly visible. The associated relaxation of the muscles prevents the formation of deep wrinkles. The procedure preserves naturalness, achieves a younger appearance and strengthens self-satisfaction.


Muscle relaxants in general medicine and neurology

At our clinic, we use muscle relaxants not only to treat wrinkles, but also to treat excessive sweating under the armpits (hyperhidrosis) and migraines. These areas of application are also based on sound medical expertise.

When does muscle relaxant work?

The treatment effect usually occurs after 48-72 hours. The maximum effect is achieved after 1-2 weeks. In exceptional cases, the effect may start later.

How long does muscle relaxant last?

The blockage in the muscle usually lasts 4-6 months.

How often does a muscle relaxant treatment need to be repeated?

The treatment should be repeated every 3 to 6 months, as the muscle relaxant breaks down in the body during this period. During this time, sunbathing, saunas and similar activities should be avoided, as heat can accelerate the breakdown.

Do the facial expressions disappear completely after the treatment?

The exaggerated facial expressions are lost. However, the effect is by no means permanent. It is a temporary condition to the desired extent. As soon as the muscle relaxant has worn off, the full facial expression is restored.

What complications can occur?

Side effects rarely occur with muscle relaxant treatment. Redness, swelling and bruising may occur at the injection sites. Too high a dose of muscle relaxant can cause headaches, nausea or severely impaired facial expressions.
