As we get older, collagen and elastin fibres start to break down in our skin, and eventually permanent lines become etched on our face by continually contracting our facial muscles. Facial wrinkles and creases caused by facial expression like smiling and frowning, as well as smoking and exposure to sun, can become more pronounced and make you look older, more tired, stressed or even anxious or angry. Like dermal fillers, wrinkle relaxers can help to smooth out facial lines and reduce the natural signs of aging. The treatment can prevent the formation of new wrinkles, and existing wrinkles will become softened, helping to create a smooth, youthful appearance.
Wrinkle relaxers are used to create a variety of problem areas, including crow’s feet around the eyes, frown lines to the forehead and between the eyebrows, as well as lines around the eyes and mouth.
Treatment involves injecting a wrinkle relaxing protein – a natural purified protein – directly into carefully selected wrinkle producing muscles. Injectable wrinkle relaxers work by relaxing facial muscles to create smoother looking skin, reducing and even preventing further wrinkles. Wrinkle relaxers are often used in conjunction with dermal fillers.
As with other non-surgical treatments, wrinkle relaxers are quicker, safer and more affordable compared to other anti-aging procedures requiring surgery.
