Wrinkle relaxers enhance and revitalize the appearance of your skin. When injected, they relax the muscles, prevent skin from creasing and causing wrinkles, and give you a younger appearance. We offer three types of injectable wrinkle relaxers: Botox, Dysport, and Xeomin.
Botox smooths lines in the forehead, between the eyebrows, and in the crow’s feet area. During your treatment, our specialist will inject very small amounts of Botox directly into the muscles beneath your facial skin. This temporarily relaxes the muscles, smoothing the lines created by muscle contraction in that area of the face. A single treatment can last for at least three months, and results will vary from patient to patient. Side effects are usually temporary and mild.
Dysport is FDA-approved for treating frown lines between the eyes, crow’s feet, and forehead lines. Dysport contains small molecules, which leads to faster results. You may notice facial changes in as little as three days with Dysport. Results typically last for 3 months.
Xeomin is injected into muscles and used to improve the look of moderate to severe frown lines between the eyebrows (glabellar lines) in adults for a short period of time (temporary). Frown lines form when facial expressions are made as the muscle under the skin contracts. Over time, as your skin ages, these repeated expressions cause lasting frown lines.
What are the Benefits of Wrinkle Relaxing Treatments?
- Reduces frown lines, wrinkles, fine lines, and other noticeable signs of aging

- Discomfort is typically very minimal, and no downtime is required
- Results typically last up to 3 -5 months
How is the Treatment Procedure Done?
A fine needle is injected into each specific muscle for a few seconds with only the minor discomfort of a tiny pinch. We apply topical anesthetic cream or ice prior to the treatment to minimize discomfort and redness.
Who Should Not Get the Treatment?
- Those who have a history of being allergic or hypersensitive to Botox, Dysport, or Xeomin.
- Those who have an infection at the treatment area.
- Those who are pregnant or nursing.
- Patients with muscle or nerve conditions such as but not limited to ALS, myasthenia gravis or Lambert-Eaton syndrome should also be cautious.
