A non-invasive injectable treatment, wrinkle relaxers are designed to smooth away wrinkles caused by repetitive muscle movement. As we age, facial tissue starts to lose elasticity and volume, allowing fine lines and deep creases to form. Additional factors like lifestyle, sun exposure, and genetics can further contribute to early signs of aging. Areas around the eyes and mouth, with lots of muscle movement, are especially prone to wrinkles like “crow’s feet” and “frown lines.” These, together with deep creases along the forehead, can make you appear unhappy, angry, or older than you are.
Wrinkle relaxers use prescription botulinum toxin to block nerve impulses to specific facial muscles, temporarily relaxing them and reducing the look of fine lines and wrinkles. Injected directly into the targeted area, this can ease the muscle tension that causes dynamic wrinkles to appear. In just one session*, lines along the forehead and around the eyes can be safely treated, restoring a youthful appearance. Common applications include:
• Crow’s feet (around the eyes)
• Forehead lines
• Frown lines (between the eyebrows)
