Muscle Relaxant Treatment

Dr. Sarah Cuffin with her award certificate

Muscle Relaxant Treatment is a method of reducing the appearance of forehead creases, frown lines and crows feet. It can help you to look fresher, less tired, less stressed and younger overall.

MRT has many benefits:

  • Safe – this treatment has been used on over 1 million patients worldwide for almost 20 years and has a proven safety record.
  • Discreet – treatment still allows expressions to show on your face.
  • Versatile – can be combined with dermal fillers to completely rejuvenate your face.
  • Preventative – deals with the cause of wrinkles as well as dealing with them after they appear.
  • A great starter treatment MRT is gentle and temporary, so it’s a good place to start if you’ve never had a cosmetic treatment before.
  • An ideal finishing touch – the treatment is suitable as a final polish for people who have had eyelid or face lift surgery.

How it works

MRT tackles the cause of lines by weakening the muscle that causes the skin to wrinkle.

MRT is often used in combination with other treatments such as Dermal Fillers. These are injected just below the surface of the skin into the line or wrinkle, and aim to temporarily fill the line.

We can advise you on a treatment plan which is most suitable for you.

Before Your Treatment

Before your treatment you will have a consultation where we will answer all your questions and assess you to make sure the treatment is suitable for you.

The Treatment

We inject small amounts of MRT into the muscles that have caused the skin to crease and furrow. This temporarily relaxes the muscles, softening existing lines and preventing the formation of new wrinkles.

We use an extremely fine needle, so most patients find that any discomfort is only mild and temporary.

The procedure usually takes no more than 10 minutes.

How Long Will the Results Last?

MRT usually lasts around 3-4 months, but with regular treatments results tend to last longer.

We would aim not to perform any “top-up” treatments for 3 months after your treatment provided you experience good results.

As with all cosmetic treatments, results can be different in different people. We will discuss what results you can expect to see and advise you on repeat treatments that will be suitable for you.

If your original lines are not deep, you should see a significant reduction in the depth and length of your original lines treated after one year. This is because the skin has a chance to regenerate without constantly being creased by the underlying muscles.

If your lines are deep, we may discuss using other techniques such as dermal fillers to improve your results.

Tooth Grinding

Do you grind or clench your teeth?

Sound familiar? Especially on waking?

Have you been prescribed a splint or night guard, only to wake up and find it on the floor or between your toes at the bottom of the bed?!

Why not consider MRT?

It has been used clinically for years, well before it became known for its cosmetic use. It has been used medically to treat tooth grinding and clenching, TMJ problems, cluster headaches, neck pain and is well documented in both Medical and Dental journals alike.
