HydraFacial

Facial expressions cause muscle contractions. Over time, these contractions create creases and lines which become etched into our faces. Muscle relaxant is used to treat specific muscles in order to reduce the appearance of facial lines and wrinkles to create a more youthful appearance. Muscle relaxant is widely used across all demographics to prevent the early signs of ageing.
