Why wrinkle relaxers make you look younger:
Wrinkle relaxers such as BOTOX® and Dysport are used to prevent, soften and weaken repetitive muscle movements that cause deep lines on the skin’s surface. The most common areas treated include the forehead, around the eyes, and those annoying “11s” between the eyebrows. Our goal is to relax your expressive muscles and smooth out those pesky creases on the skin. You will look more relaxed and well-rested with just one treatment!
How do wrinkle relaxers work?
BOTOX® and Dysport block impulses from the nerve to the tiny facial muscles that are related to expression lines. Treatments relax the muscles so they do not contract as intensely. After treatment, the overlying skin remains smooth and unwrinkled, while the untreated facial muscles contract as they normally do. BOTOX® and Dysport treatments are also preventative against lines and wrinkles becoming deeper over time.
How Safe Is BOTOX®?
BOTOX® injections have been used safely and effectively for over ten years to treat many ophthalmologic and neurological disorders. Each year, many thousands of patients receive BOTOX® treatments for a variety of conditions. It is becoming an increasingly popular treatment for reversing the visible signs of aging.
What will happen when you get BOTOX® or Dysport?
First, we cleanse the skin, identify areas that are contributing to deep lines and wrinkles, and then a master-trained aesthetic nurse injector will administer a custom BOTOX® or Dysport treatment. Using a tiny micro-needle, a very small amount of BOTOX® is injected, very precisely, into several locations in the face. No sedation or local anesthetic is required, and you can resume normal activities immediately. This painless and well-tolerated treatment usually takes less than 10 minutes
What results can you expect from wrinkle relaxers?
You will begin to see a gradual softening of lines and wrinkles within 5-7 days and full results after 14 days and the effect usually lasts 3-5 months.* For optimal, long-lasting results, we recommend new patients return for a dose adjustment after two weeks and for maintenance every three months.*
