Wrinkle relaxers like the known brand Botox, Xeomin, and Dysport, are injected in specific areas with frown lines. Wrinkle relaxers block the neurons on the muscle and cause a temporary paralyzing effect to prevent wrinkles from forming. Results are not immediate and may take 5 to 14 days for the full effect. Like most procedures we provide at Alchemy West Greenville SC, a wrinkle relaxer is not permanent and typically lasts 3 to 4 months. Regular injections will help minimize the formation of deep wrinkles. For a more comfortable and pain-free experience, we encourage and provide the use of numbing cream.
Wrinkles are caused by the development of excess collagen in your skin. These muscles tighten and relax your face, allowing it to elongate and compress. To give your skin more time to repair, wrinkle relaxers lessen the activity of these muscles. Treatment is focused on assisting your skin to regenerate. Not to freeze your face to restore health. At Alchemy West Greenville SC, we may also use wrinkle relaxers to change resting muscle tone and enhance the dynamics of your smile.
Areas we most commonly use wrinkle relaxers on include:
- Frown lines
- Deep wrinkles
- Forehead creases and lines
- Crow’s feet
- Jaw area
- Fine lines around the lips
- Drooping cheeks
- Thin or uneven lips
- Wrinkles or lost volume on the back of your hands
Anti-wrinkle injections can be given to anyone who has wrinkles due to muscular movement. It may be used to treat or prevent existing fine lines from turning into permanent wrinkles. At Alchemy West in Greenville SC we generally recommend a wrinkle relaxer treatment when the face is at rest and you can see visible lines. Fine lines and wrinkles typically start to form between the ages of 25 and 35.
The first step in your wrinkle relaxer treatment at Alchemy West in Greenville SC will consist of a thorough examination of your face and smile. This is so that the facial dynamics of your face will be enhanced as a result of the therapy. The target regions are injected with a solution that causes wrinkle relaxers. The treatment generally takes between 20 and 30 minutes. There is no interruption due to the therapy. 3-4 days after the treatment, the wrinkle relaxers usually begin to work, and two weeks later, the effects can be seen.
For optimal results with wrinkle relaxer treatments, wrinkle relaxers should be used with other skin therapies. As your skin’s health improves, fewer treatments are usually required. Contact Alchemy West Greenville SC for a consultation today!
