Muscle Relaxing & Anti-Wrinkle Injections in Birmingham
Fine lines, crows feet and wrinkles becoming more noticeable as we age is a natural process. Visibly showing as frown lines, forehead lines and sagging in the skin, they become deeper due to habitual use of the facial muscles.
Despite your age and natural genetics, you can still have a youthful, refreshed complexion by controlling your facial muscles with carefully administered injections.
Our doctors are happy to soften your lines and help you to break the habits of squinting or frowning, therefore reducing wrinkles and the development of lines.
COMBAT SIGNS OF AGEING FOR A REFRESHED AND YOUTHFUL COMPLEXION
Widely recognised as Botox, these revolutionary injections control muscle movement in the areas concerned for a smooth and rested appearance which lasts for months.
If you suffer from excessive sweating, muscle relaxing injections can help avoid embarrassing situations and visibly improve your condition. Known as Hyperhidrosis, it can be a debilitating condition which leads to discomfort and social anxiety. Muscle relaxing injections can be used to block the nerves which cause sweating in a simple procedure with no downtime.
All smiles are beautiful, however if you are concerned about your smile showing too much of the gums, we can use muscle relaxing injections to treat this area. Not only can treating a gummy smile be a cosmetic preference, but it can actually impact your ability to sing or play certain instruments.
Our experienced practitioner will be able to put you at ease and address any concerns you may have. The procedure is quick and relatively painless, allowing you to return to your daily life immediately!
What we treat with anti-wrinkle and muscle relaxing injections
The results will last between 3 and 6 months. However, in some patients who use this treatment regularly, we find that the results might last even longer.
All you need to know about Muscle Relaxing & Anti-Wrinkle Injections
You may have other questions about the procedure that may not have been answered yet. Here are some of the most frequently asked questions regarding these injections.
Botox is a common brand name for muscle relaxing and anti wrinkle injections derived from Botulinum Toxin.
The discomfort is minimal and is mostly described by patients as a “tiny scratch” as the needle goes in followed by slight pressure under the skin. Skin-numbing cream is applied prior to the treatment.
You may notice some soreness in the injection site directly after the treatment, but this should subside quickly.
Our doctors pride themselves on both extensive medical knowledge and experience as well as a great sense of aesthetic, and will always aim to deliver a result that is as natural and aesthetically pleasing as the patient desires.
This really depends on your concern but you must be over 18. If you are interested in anti-wrinkle injections as an anti-ageing method, this really depends on your own biology and needs as people show signs of ageing at different rates. If you are unsure about whether you need anti-wrinkle or muscle relaxing injections please consult our experienced practitioners.
The treatment will involve a doctor making a series of small injections into the muscles of your face. The injection process itself will only take several minutes. Our choice of Botulinum toxin of choice is Botox®.
Botulinum toxin has been in medical use for over four decades, and it is administered in such a way that it only affects your muscles and sweat glands – it does not reach any other part of the body. As long as it is administered by a qualified medical professional, the risks are extremely minimal.
Anti-wrinkle injections are most effective when used to reduce the signs of ageing in the following places:
· Between the eyes
· Sides of the eyes
You can carry on with your day as normal, although we advise that you avoid strenuous activity/saunas/other facial treatments for up to 24 hours.
After 4-10 days you will notice an improvement in your lines/wrinkles, and this result will last approximately 3-4 months, although this is highly individual and will vary from patient to patient.
Before you undergo any injectable treatment, you will be invited for a complimentary consultation session with one of our experienced medical professionals, who will help you determine which treatment is suitable for you.
Most side effects are short-lived and mild, the most common being mild bruising to the site of the injection. Some patients also report mild headaches shortly after the treatment, but these usually subside within 24 hours.
You should not have this treatment if:
· The injection site is infected
· You are allergic to any of the ingredients
· You are pregnant or breastfeeding
· You have a neuromuscular disorder (e.g. myasthenia gravis).
A full list of possible side effects, cautions and contraindications will be discussed at face to face consultation. Any injectable procedure will only be undertaken after your face to face consultation with one of our medical practitioners, during which a full assessment will be carried out and a full list of cautions and contraindications discussed.
Do not consume any alcohol or pain medication immediately after the anti-wrinkle procedure, and avoid air travel for 48 hours. We do not recommend undergoing any electrical rejuvenation treatments in the week following your Botox treatment.
It is important to note that anti-wrinkle injections do not immediately improve static lines or lines that are present at rest. These can be treated by adding volume with dermal fillers or through skin resurfacing.
The duration of effectiveness is dependent on the dose administered and can last up to 6 months, but generally, on the first few sessions, the longevity is usually shorter – around 3 months.
Studies have shown that anti-wrinkle injections are more effective and last longer when given at regular intervals of 3-4 months due to progressive weakening of the muscles treated.
If, at any time, you decide to cease treatment, your muscles will return to normal. Wrinkling returns to its previous state and does not become worse.
Over time, Botox is broken down by the body into harmless amino acids, which are excreted by the kidneys as waste.

Very friendly staff with a wide range and treatments, and the knowledge of how to apply those treatments. Very relaxed atmosphere, where you can discuss (without pressure) what you would like to enhance, about the way you look. They've altered my life and how I feel about myself in a very short time. I had no idea that I could alter (without surgery) my physical shape. This seemed to happen almost magically while we were chatting through the totally painless procedure. I'm very happy that I found you guys at Medispa, many thanks

I have been visiting EF Medispa, Edgbaston for a few months now and I can honestly say it has so far been a very positive experience. The team are so friendly and welcoming, you are always greeted with big warm smiles. I initially had my consultation with Sarah, who was lovely and very knowledgeable. She explained the whole procedure to me before treatments commenced. I also cannot speak highly enough of Kelly who has been carrying out my treatments. She always makes me feel at ease, from the very start she has walked me through the process of the whole procedure, answers all my questions and tells me what the benefits are. I would highly recommend coming to EF Medispa, Edgbaston, it is a spotless and pristine clinic and not only that, you will be well looked after by all the professional, friendly and welcoming staff from the moment you walk through the door.

I have been going to Ef Medispa for a couple of months now for ongoing treatments and it is one of the best decisions I have ever made. Not only can I see mass amount of improvements, I’ve created such a friendship with the staff. I walked in feeling under confident and insecure, however, Beth and Sarah have both made my self esteem higher than ever. Can’t thank them enough, going here is more like a catchup with friends!
