Wrinkle relaxers also known as “neuromodulators” are injectable treatments that reduce the appearance of dynamic lines and wrinkles. They can also be used to lift the brow, reduce the appearance of jowls and neck bands, shape the jawline and more.
How does Wrinkle Relaxers work?
Wrinkle relaxing injectables are comprised of a naturally-occurring, purified protein. They can be used to safely and temporarily disable muscles by blocking the transmission of neurological signals. Aesthetic Solutions currently offers Botox, Daxxify, Dysport, and Jeuveau, which are strategically administered to prevent contraction of specific muscles that cause creases or wrinkles. In addition to treating wrinkles, neuromodulators can be used to elevate the brow, reduce masseter muscles, help with TMJ, reverse “downturned” lips, correct “gummy smiles” and “bunny lines”, shape the jawline and reduce neck bands.
Expert knowledge of facial anatomy is the key to outstanding results. Precise dose and placement determine the success of the treatment. Dr. Cox is internationally recognized for her skills as an injector.
Is Wrinkle Relaxers safe?
The FDA has approved Botox, Dysport, Daxxify and Jeuveau to safely treat wrinkles. Like any surgical or non-surgical procedure, there are risks. As an international teacher and trainer of other physicians in facial anatomy and injection techniques, Dr. Cox stresses the importance of finding an experienced physician who understands the finer points of injectable treatment. Dr. Cox performed clinical trials for Botox, Daxxify, Dysport and Jeuveau as well as new neuromodulators not yet on the market, and is internationally recognized for her skills as an injector.
Wrinkle Relaxers downtime
Neuromodulator wrinkle treatments are well tolerated. The treatment is comprised of a series of precise injections with a very small needle. This process only takes a few minutes. Patients often compare the feeling to having their eyebrows plucked.
There is no downtime associated with Botox, Daxxify , Dysport, or Jeuveau. Once the injections are complete, there is typically mild swelling and redness around the pin-prick injection sites. This dissipates within a few minutes.
Wrinkle Relaxers results
You will begin to see results from injectable neuromodulators within three to four days. Full results will appear two weeks after treatment. Wrinkle reducing treatments like Botox, Daxi, Dysport, Xeomin and Jeuveau typically last three to five months.
Dynamic wrinkles appear when muscles are contracted as you smile, frown, laugh, furrow your brow, and make other facial expressions. One Botox, Daxxify, Dysport, or Jeuveau treatment will reduce or eliminate the appearance of dynamic wrinkles in the treated areas.
Static wrinkles are “etched in” and remain visible even when your facial muscles are at rest. Over time, the absence of muscle contractions improves the look of static wrinkles and may prevent future ones from forming.
