Botox & Muscle Relaxing Injections

Tackle the appearance of wrinkles with our muscle relaxing treatments. Let us restore your youth using the industry gold standard Botox by Allergan.

New Light provide anti-wrinkle and Botox injections to patients in Walsall, Birmingham, Wolverhampton and surrounding areas.

What is Botox?

There are many companies supplying the chemical causing muscle to relax. At New Light we specialise in Botox in Walsall, and choose to work with the industries’ gold standard – Botox by Allergan. A chemical derived from the bacterium Clostridium Botulinum. When injected into muscles it has a local effect. It blocks transmission between the nerve endings and muscle fibres around the injection site to cause weakness of the nearby muscle. It can also be used to control excessive sweating.

The Muscle Relaxants injection procedure

Your practitioner will administer several tiny injections of Muscle Relaxants directly into the muscles of your face. Prior to injection, your doctor will determine where to administer the injections by examining your ability to move certain muscles in your brow area. The entire Muscle Relaxants injection procedure takes approximately 20 minutes and does not require anesthesia. Discomfort is usually minimal and brief.

How often can Muscle Relaxants injections be given?

You can receive injections every 3 months. Repeated treatments produce longer lasting results, as thinning of the muscles occurs. 

After the injection

You should notice an improvement in your frown lines within 3 to 7 days, the effects of which can last up to 3 months. However, results may vary. After a period of time, your frown lines will begin to reappear as the effects of Muscle Relaxants wear off.
