Muscle Relaxants For Men
Muscle relaxants are used for a variety of treatments; this includes skin rejuvenation. Contrary to popular belief, these relaxants are not only used by female patients, as they have become increasingly popular among male patients.
Do you want to learn more about muscle relaxants and their uses? Or do you have an interest in the procedure overall? For more information about muscle relaxants, please read the information provided by the Dr Lanzer Clinic below.
What Are Muscle Relaxants?
Muscle relaxants are injections that are performed into muscles to relax the muscle and thereby reduce the wrinkled appearance. Thus, muscle relaxants find common applications in rejuvenation treatments for both men and women.
Where Do Men Have Muscle Relaxants?
Muscle relaxants are particularly used around the eyes for the crow’s feet lines and the glabella area, which is between the eyebrows. There are a number of strong muscles in the glabella region that makes patients frown; this line is often called the L-shape because there sometimes are two distinctive vertical lines.
Can Muscle Relaxants Be Used in Other Areas?
Yes, sometimes people have muscle relaxants on their chin, on the side of the nose or on the eyebrow to help elevate the eyebrow.
Where Are Muscle Relaxants Used Elsewhere in Men?
Men often come in to have muscle relaxants under their arms for axillary hyperhidrosis. Hyperhidrosis is another word for excessive sweating; this can occur on the underarms as well as the palms and soles of the feet.
Hyperhidrosis is now partly covered by Medicare; this reduces the expense for patients who experience quite some discomfort from the condition. It can be performed every four months throughout the year.
Is There A Difference Between Muscle Relaxants?
Muscle relaxants act in a different way but there are some differences between the muscle relaxants available today. Naturally, Dr Lanzer and his staff have their preferences. So, the muscle relaxants used at our clinic are not necessarily the same you will find in other cosmetic surgery clinics.
When Would A Man Know That He Needs A Muscle Relaxant?
Often a man will have this when people comment that he is making an angry face or that he has got some aging and tiredness around the eyes. The medical condition hyperhidrosis could be another reason why a male patient chooses muscle relaxants.
How Long Does It Take For The Muscle Relaxant To Work?
They usually start working in a day or two and reach their peak effectiveness in 1-2 weeks. Muscle relaxants are often repeated after 3 or 4 months. Sometimes patients who use the relaxant regularly report that the effects can be much more long-lasting.
Muscle relaxants for men are suitable for:
- Smile Lines
- Frown Lines
- Forehead Lines
- Softens Neck Muscles
- Lifts eyebrows
- Excessive Sweating
How Do Wrinkles Form And How Can Male Muscle Relaxants Help?
The face regularly moves; this can be through conscious movements – of which you are aware – but also movements you are not aware of. Because of this repeated movement, men can encounter so-called dynamic wrinkles. Wrinkles that are dynamic can be reduced by preventing the movement of specific muscles. In turn, this will prevent more pronounced wrinkles in the future.
Male muscle relaxants are not the same thing as collagen or fat injections. A male muscle relaxant will stop the nerve from interacting with the muscle, which in turn stops the muscle contraction. This stops the specific movement that causes the dynamic wrinkles we mentioned earlier.
Dr Lanzer has executed many treatments involving male muscle relaxants in the past. Through his experience, he has found that male muscle relaxants can make the effects of laser resurfacing last longer. Since laser resurfacing is another rejuvenation treatment available to men, it is certainly an important factor to take note of.
To get the best result from an anti-ageing treatment, cosmetic surgeons can recommend a combination of available treatments or procedures. Of course, additional considerations must be incorporated; this includes factors such as cost, the patient’s overall health, and the desired result.

Are Facial Muscle Relaxing Injections Safe for Men?
It is now one of the most common cosmetic procedures and is relatively safe. Of course, as with all procedures, there is always some degree of risk involved. Before having the procedure, always speak to your cosmetic surgeon about concerns or questions you have.
Is the Procedure Painful?
There can be slight pain on the injection site. In some cases, a numbing topical with a sedative effect may be used to decrease any discomfort. However, there is no real downtime associated with male muscle relaxants.
Male Muscle Relaxant Treatment Locations
Various areas on the face can be treated with male muscle relaxants. Problems that are often treated with this procedure include crow’s feet, frown lines, and forehead lines. Smoker’s lines above the upper lid could also be treated with male muscle relaxant. Of course, the most effective treatment for the latter is to quit smoking.
There are some medical problems where male muscle relaxants could be used; this includes chronic pain caused by certain muscles, relieve muscle spasms, and medical conditions that influence muscle contraction. A doctor can prescribe muscle relaxants in some cases, although it is rare.
Do The Results From Male Muscle Relaxants Last?
Patients who have this treatment will have to return for maintenance sessions. However, Dr Lanzer has noticed that the effects of male muscle relaxants are more long term for some patients after each consecutive maintenance session. Unfortunately, this is a benefit that can be quite unique to the patient.
Do Male Muscle Relaxants Often Cause Complications?
Complications associated with male muscle relaxants often relate to improper injection technique. For example, if an untrained medical professional injects the muscle relaxant too close to the eye, it could cause drooping of the eyes or eyebrows. There can also be some minor bruising because of the injection, which is one of the common side-effects.
How Long Will I Spend In The Clinic For Muscle Relaxant Therapy?
The injection does not take longer than a minute. However, this treatment should always be performed by a licensed medical professional.
