muscle relaxation CASE STUDY
Hx: The patient presented wanting increased lip volume.

learn more about Anti-Wrinkle
Anti-wrinkle injections (AKA neuromodulators and muscle relaxants) act at the point where nerve tissue inserts into muscular tissue. By blocking action at this junction, carefully delivered injections may temporarily reduce muscular activity. The same products may also be used for down-regulating of sebum and sweat production, for muscle hyperactivity (e.g. spasticity, migraine, bowel motility), reducing the appearance of dynamic wrinkles and muscle bulk; and to modify facial expression.
