Bothered by fine lines and wrinkles? Consider a wrinkle relaxer treatment. They are highly effective for treating dynamic wrinkles and expression lines, some of the most common signs of aging. Although non-surgical, these treatments can give you dramatic results and make you look years younger.
What Are Dynamic Wrinkles and Expression Lines?
When you make an expression, wrinkles naturally appear on the face. This happens when you laugh, frown, squint, raise your eyebrows, etc. These wrinkles quickly fade during youth, when the face has plenty of collagen to help it bounce back. Collagen production begins to slow with age, however, making it harder for the skin to smooth out. These are what are known as dynamic wrinkles and/or expression lines. Two of the most common types of these wrinkles are crow’s feet (at the corners of the eyes) and frown lines (vertical lines in between the eyebrows). Lines around the mouth are considered to be dynamic wrinkles as well.
How Can a Wrinkle Relaxer Treatment Help?
A wrinkle relaxer treatment will temporarily relax certain facial muscles. This allows the face to relax, which will reduce the appearance of dynamic wrinkles. How long this takes to happen and how long it will last depends on which wrinkle relaxer treatment you are having done. Typically, muscle movement stops within a matter of days and the effects can last up to four months.
Botox®, Xeomin®, and Dysport® are all examples of wrinkle relaxers. They all are slightly different and each has its own list of pros and cons. If you decide you would like to explore this treatment option, the first step is to sit down at a consultation. This will allow us to help you determine which wrinkle relaxer treatment is the best choice for you.
Once the effects begin to wear off, you will need a follow-up treatment if you would like to maintain your results. One benefit of these procedures is that their effects are temporary. If you decide you do not like the way you look after your treatment, simply look into other options.
What Are the Benefits of Wrinkle Relaxer Treatments?
There are many reasons to consider this type of treatment, including:
- Injections are quick and easy
- There is no downtime after treatment
- Injections are made in a precise manner that does not impact the surrounding area
- They treat some of the most common signs of aging
- Just 3-4 treatments a year can keep you looking young
