As we age, the inevitable signs of time start to appear on our faces. While there are natural ways to maintain a youthful appearance, such as a healthy diet, NAD+ therapy, and infrared treatments, sometimes we need a little extra help to refresh our look. Wrinkle relaxers like Botox®, Dysport®, and Xeomin® have become popular choices for those seeking a smoother, more youthful appearance. In this blog, we'll explore why you should consider wrinkle relaxers and how they work to combat the effects of aging.

How Do Wrinkles Develop?

Before diving into the benefits of wrinkle relaxers, it's essential to understand how wrinkles form. As we age, our skin becomes less elastic, and the production of natural oils decreases. This results in a loss of skin firmness and an increase in the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines, crow's feet, and forehead lines.

What Wrinkle Relaxers Target:

Wrinkle relaxers may target common areas where signs of aging tend to appear:

  • Crow's feet
  • Forehead lines
  • Frown lines
  • Fine lines and wrinkles

These injections work by temporarily softening the muscle movements responsible for these aging signs. By doing so, they smooth out facial creases and prevent the worsening of wrinkles.

How Do Wrinkle Relaxers Work?

Wrinkle relaxer treatments are quick, safe, and effective. During the procedure, a trained aesthetics provider administers the injections to the targeted areas. The treatment typically takes only a few minutes, and its effects can last for months.

Our team of experienced aesthetic nurses is dedicated to enhancing your natural appearance. However, it's important to note that a consultation is required to determine the appropriate treatment for your unique needs.

What’s the Difference Between Botox®, Dysport®, and Xeomin®?

While Botox, Dysport, and Xeomin all achieve similar results, they have some differences worth considering:

  • Botox and Dysport contain added proteins in their composition, which can make them last slightly longer than Xeomin.
  • Xeomin is formulated as a smart toxin with a double-filtered formula, removing unnecessary proteins and providing only what's needed for smoother skin.
  • If you develop a tolerance to Botox or Dysport over time, Xeomin can be an effective alternative since it does not contain the protein that can lead to resistance.

What to Expect During and After Injections

Your aesthetics provider will evaluate your needs and recommend the type and amount of wrinkle relaxer required during your appointment. After the injection, you may experience some swelling and redness, which should subside within a few days.

The results of the treatment typically become noticeable within a week and can last for several months, depending on the specific filler used and the treated area. As mentioned earlier, a consultation is necessary to determine the appropriate treatment plan for you.

Schedule Your Consultation and discover the difference wrinkle relaxers can make in your journey to a more youthful and refreshed appearance.
