Will cosmetic injectables affect my muscles and nerves long-term?

Cosmetic injections won't directly affect your muscles in the long term. Instead, they affect the proteins within your nerve endings, and your body will rebuild them within a few months. Muscle relaxing injections can weaken the muscles in your face that cause unwanted expressions. With repeated use, those muscles can weaken and eventually result in reduced visibility of lines and wrinkles.
