What it is:
Botox®, Xeomin®, Dysport®, and JeuVeau®.
Wrinkle relaxers, generically termed Botox, aka neuromodulators, target the neuromuscular junction where it temporarily inhibits the uptake of acetylcholine and thus relaxes the muscle which in turn temporarily rids you of expression lines and wrinkles and may even give you a "lift" when injected in certain areas of the face, leaving you looking awake and rejuvenated. When done skillfully you can expect very natural results.
Common treatment areas include: forehead lines, frown lines (11's), crows feet around eyes, lip lines/lip flip, dimpled chin, neck bands/lines, lip lines/lip flip, masseters (for facial slimming and relief from TMJ pain), hyperhidrosis (excess sweating), pore reduction, and décolleté (for tighter/smoother looking skin).
What to expect at your appointment:
The needle used to inject the wrinkle relaxer is very small, and the injecting itself usually only takes about 10-15 minutes which is done after completing a thorough facial analysis and assessment of your goals. After that your injector will inject and then you'll chat and be sent on your way!
After your appointment:
You will generally start seeing results within 2-7 days after your appointment with full results at about 2 weeks. This is why we love for you to come in for a 2-week follow up after your first appointment with us so that we can make any refinements as needed (Note: additional product at your follow up appointment is an additional charge). Everyone's face and dose is different and unique, once you are a regular patient of ours we will determine your personal "recipe" that works for you based off your goals and anatomy. Typically the results of wrinkle relaxers can be seen for 3-4 months, but this can greatly vary person to person depending on factors such as your rate of metabolism, gender, and age.
Though most people do not experience any pain after injections, some patients may experience slight redness, bruising, headache, and/or swelling which generally resolves quickly. In the following 24 hours after your appointment, it is important that you refrain from heavy exercise, hot tubs, and saunas as we want to ensure that the neuromodulator settles in the muscles we want it to target and doesn't sneak off elsewhere. Please visit the Aftercare tab for full aftercare instructions.
Additional Info About Wrinkle Relaxers
When placed properly you will NOT look fake! The only concern for addiction is being addiction to how good you are going to look and the confidence you gain from that. If you stop using wrinkle relaxers your face will NOT droop. Using wrinkle relaxers essentially presses a pause button on aging, though we can't make lines and wrinkles go away forever without surgical intervention, we can diminish the appearance of them and further the progression by using wrinkle relaxers. Neuromodulators have many uses outside of aesthetics including treatment of migraines, hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating), teeth grinding, and muscle pain/spasms.
