What Are Wrinkle Relaxers?
A lifetime of laughing, smiling and frowning eventually leads to the formation of wrinkles, fine lines and creases on your skin. Wrinkle relaxers, such as BOTOX® Cosmetic and Xeomin, are FDA-approved injection treatments that can effectively address dynamic lines that may be causing you to look older than you feel.
Unlike dermal fillers such as Juvederm, wrinkle relaxers contain botulinum toxin. Wrinkle relaxers smooth fine lines and creases by inhibiting the contraction of facial muscles. By temporarily blocking the nerve signals that contribute to dynamic lines, the appearance of these wrinkles is diminished and the development of future lines is hindered.
During your consultation, Dr. Hardt will evaluate your skin and assess your medical history. This is an essential part of the process to determine which treatment is right for you.
You have likely already heard a lot about Botox® Cosmetic over the years, considering it is one of the most popular cosmetic treatments on the planet. Botox® Cosmetic is used to treat a variety of wrinkles, including:
- Crow’s feet (fine lines that branch from the outer corners of your eyes)
- Glabellar lines (wrinkles between the eyebrows)
- Marionette lines (vertical wrinkles that originate at the corners of the mouth and branch downward toward the chin)
- Forehead wrinkles
During your Botox® Cosmetic treatment, the special formula is injected directly into the muscles beneath your skin. This relaxes the muscles temporarily, smoothing the lines created by muscle contraction in the targeted area. Treatment sessions are quick and convenient, easily performed on your lunch break. Results usually last about three to four months, and can be prolonged with consecutive treatments.
Like BOTOX® Cosmetic and other neuromodulators, Xeomin is also made from botulinum toxin. It is approved by the FDA for the treatment of frown lines. Xeomin does not include additives, reducing the risk of your body forming antibodies to resist it. Xeomin injection treatments are performed in the same way as other wrinkle relaxers. Initial results are usually seen within the first three to four days after treatment. Xeomin results typically last about three to four months and repeated treatments are necessary to maintain long-term results.
