Many deep-set lines particularly in the upper face are due to over-activity of the muscles.  This applies to people, regardless of age, whose facial expressions predispose them to lines of this kind.

This simple procedure involves injecting tiny amounts of muscle relaxant into the muscle which suppresses over-activity. The effect of this procedure is that lines become much reduced or disappear completely.

The procedure itself takes only a few minutes and the result can last, on average 3 – 4 months.

A fortnightly review is offered following all muscle relaxant treatments.


Very well treated right from the first phone call to make enquiries about treatment.  The telephone manner is really friendly and professional.  When I arrived for the treatment all the staff make you feel relaxed and alay all your fears.  There are chocolates tea and coffee to make you feel at home.

The treatment is given in a very friendly and professional manner with minimal discomfort.

When I had injectable treatments, Karen was really friendly and professional and I felt little pain and discomfort

I have been coming to the clinic for 5 years now and prior to any treatment its always a worry who to go to when thinking about having treatment at any clinic but since coming to the clinic I have 100% confidence in everybody here.

All of the staff at the clinic are so lovely in a totally relaxed atmosphere, everybody is so friendly.

The doctor and practitioners are really nice and following the treatments I have received I have had excellent results from having SmartXide, Fraxel and Muscle Relaxants.

I would not hesitate to recommend anybody to come to the clinic.
