Injections that smooth frown lines by prohibiting the facial muscles’ ability to contract is a very common procedure in the Facial Aesthetics industry.

It blocks the nerve receptors that innervate the muscle injected, thereby preventing muscle contraction. This stops the ability of the muscle to receive signals to contract, and this allows the smoothing of the overlying skin which in turn causes wrinkles to smooth out and prevent the wrinkles from becoming deeper. It also helps with grinding and clenching patients minimizing symptoms associated with the habit.
