Facelift versus Hyaluronic acid versus Muscle relaxant

When is the right time to think about facial treatment? And do I know if I am ready for invasive surgery such as Facelift or will Hyaluronic acid filler or Muscle relaxant injection can help?



Most of the people do not know where to start or what is the right choice for them. And some of them prefer to start with less invasive procedures if it's not too late of course.

The first thing to consider is the age and also the stage of our facial expression. Another thing is to have the desired look but at the same time realistic expectation. We would like to closely explain and describe all those procedures and compare their benefits and possible side effects or risks. 



All of those three treatments have a hight popular rate, different benefits and also little disadvantages. Compare the treatments and find out more about Facelift, Hyaluronic acid fillers and Muscle relaxant. 


Facelift Surgery

Facelift is the invasive surgical procedure, which helps to remove saggy skin and tighten it to achieve the youthful and fresh look. It can be done under local or general anaesthetic. There are various techniques and also ways to perform the facelift, such as SMAS, MACS or lower facelift depending on the individual case.

Facelift surgery is the option for those where the hyaluronic fillers or muscle paralyser doesn't help anymore or those who want permanent result. With ageing, we lose elasticity in our skin and therefore it starts to droop. It is not only sagginess which bothers us but also deep wrinkles.

State of our face is affected by ageing, genetics, sunlight and also pollutants and smoking. To improve these imperfections facelift is the perfect solution which will help your skin and face to look younger and fresh.

The healing process after this treatment is longer and slightly more painful. The surgeon will always advise what type of facelift is needed, what method should be used to achieve the desired look. Facelift is one of the most popular cosmetic plastic surgeries for its minimum side effects and risk.

The major facts and advantages of non-invasive enhancement are fast and smooth healing and painless process.

Hyaluronic acid filler

The hyaluronic acid filler is the least invasive face procedure. Even women in their twenties improve their look with this treatment. This procedure is extremely popular for its minimum recovery and painless process, however, the result won't last for too long, only a couple of months.


Hyaluronic acid is the natural so-called hyaluronan is also situated in every human body.


And therefore this treatment has to be repeated to achieve and keep the demanded look. It helps with the first stage wrinkles, which are not too deep and don’t need surgical procedure and it can be used for various facial areas, such as cheeks, around the mouth, lips or under the eyes to get rid of the eye bags. 

Hyaluronic acid is the natural so-called hyaluronan is also situated in every human body. It allows the skin to be elastic and stays hydrated which prevents skin from wrinkles.

As we age the amount of this acid decrease and the body and skin especially can have the first signs of ageing. Hyaluronic acid fillers are a great way to keep our skin younger and fresh with youthful look for longer. 


Muscle relaxant

Muscle relaxant or muscle paralyser is a substance which is injected into the skin and react to the muscle movements.

It relaxes your muscles and that will have an impact on using them. That means that underlying muscles become slightly paralysed they won't move and prevent wrinkles from developing or worsening.

The popularity of this treatment is extremely high, the studies have even shown that is the most popular cosmetic facial procedure in the world.

Face injection

This treatment will make your frown lines and wrinkles less obvious and it temporary rejuvenate your facial appearance. It also has another advantage such as stopping the excessive sweat. 

Even the world is speaking highly about this procedure it also has disadvantages and risks with side effects. The main disadvantage is the unnatural look which is caused by paralysed muscles and they will not allow your face to move and that is quite obvious.

It is a muscle relaxant. It has some analgesic effects also, but the main thing is not it. We recommended Soma (Carisoprodol) to patients exclusively suffering from muscle spasms. It is prescription only, due to the severe physical and cognitive effects it might cause. One of the most important warnings is to start in lowest dosage from 350mg.

The muscle relaxant is basically is produced by bacterium similar to the one which can cause serious food poisoning at a hight dosage if it's not applied correctly.
