What Are Wrinkle Relaxers?

Wrinkle Relaxers are a muscle relaxant of the tiny facial muscles related to expression lines. This “cosmetic denervation” prevents muscle related wrinkle lines, resulting in a more relaxed and youthful appearance. After treatment, the overlying skin remains smooth and unwrinkled, while the untreated facial muscles behave in a normal fashion. The treatment is very quick and highly effective.

Wrinkle Relaxers are one of fastest growing, most popular and effective treatments in cosmetic dermatology today. The TGA (Therapeutic Goods Administration) Regulations prevent us from naming the product on this web site. However we can discuss the treatment fully during a consultation at the clinic.


Which lines are suitable ?

Wrinkles most suitable for Wrinkle Relaxer injection are those used by facial muscles in the upper face. Often these muscles have no other useful action. Such lines are the vertical “frown lines” between the eyebrows, the “crows feet" at the sides of the eyes, the upper part of the nasolabial furrows and horizontal upper forehead lines.


What is treatment like?

Cosmetic Wrinkle Relaxer injection is a simple procedure. A small amount is injected very precisely into several locations. Because the needle is so fine , no sedation or local anaesthetic is required and you can resume normal activities immediately afterwards.


Are there any side effects?

The treatment is very specific and only affects the ability of muscle to contract. It produces no numbness or other disturbance of sensation. However, temporary side effects can occur. Some patients experience slight bruising at the injection site. This can be covered with make-up. Very occasionally temporary weakness of nearby muscles can occur. Because the effects are completely reversible, any side effects are always temporary.


How Long Does the Effect Last?

Wrinkle Relaxers are a temporary solution for treatment of dynamic wrinkles. They usually takes 3-5 days to take effect, and effects last 3– 5 months. Studies indicate the duration of treatment benefits increases over time, so you should require injections less frequently in future.


What are the limitations of Wrinkle Relaxer Injections?


The treatment cannot remove wrinkles due to excess folds of skin since they are unrelated to facial muscle contractions. Some ares may also need a dermal filler for optimum improvement. Wrinkle Relaxer injections will not improve sagging skin or replace the need for a facelift or brow lift.


Costs

Wrinkle Relaxer treatment will cost from $275, depending on the areas to be treated. It is therefore one of the most cost effective cosmetic treatments available.



Case Study 1: Frown Lines

Frown Lines give you an angry expression and can result in permanent deep furrows between the eyebrows.

15-20 units of a wrinkle relaxer will greatly improve these lines. The result— a much more relaxed appearance for several months.

As a bonus, wrinkle relaxers also act in a preventive manner to slow facial ageing. By stopping the repeated skin creasing that create the deep furrows, the aging process is arrested for the duration of the treatment.

Case Study 2: Laughter Lines

Laughter Lines are created by the muscles around the outer edge of the eyes. They can result in a much more aged appearance than your true age.

Fortunately, 7-10 units per side of a wrinkle relaxer is highly effective at smoothing these line. The result — a smoother, less aged facial appearance for several months.

Case Study 3 : Forehead Worry Lines

Worry Lines are a result of overactive muscles in the upper and mid forehead. This results in a worried and aged expression with horizontal forehead creases.

The correct treatment is 15—20 units of a wrinkle relaxer. As demonstrated, this is very effective at smoothing out your forehead. The result—a calmer, serene and more youthful face.

Once again, the preventive aspects of this treatment are an extra bonus—for several months the forehead is relaxed and unable to create and worsen wrinkles.
