Wrinkle Relaxers

Wrinkle relaxers, also known as neurotoxins, work by using a toxin that relaxes muscles and smooths out lines. Simply stated, wrinkle relaxers work by paralyzing the muscles so they don’t contract and cause wrinkles. When done correctly, wrinkle relaxers can maintain a natural, youthful look.

A Non-Invasive Way To Alter Your Facial Features

Wrinkle Relaxers Reverse Facial Aging

Facial aging starts as early as the 20s and causes our skin to change continuously over time. One of these changes is that skin cell division slows down, which causes the middle layer of skin to become thinner. This middle layer, known as the dermis, contains elastin and collagen. As the dermis thins, the amount of elastin and collagen decrease, which causes depressions in the skin known as wrinkles. Facial muscle contractions associated with facial expressions also contribute to wrinkles by making them more prevalent. 

When performed by a Love To Live skin care specialist, wrinkle relaxers provide natural facial enhancements that restore a youthful appearance.

How Do Wrinkle Relaxers Work?

Wrinkle relaxers help reduce the appearance of wrinkles by minimizing the muscle contractions responsible for forming facial wrinkles. Depending on the amount of wrinkle relaxer used, the facial muscles can be partially or fully paralyzed to prevent a group of muscles from contracting. The result is smoother, wrinkle-free skin that lasts for three to four months.

The Treatment Process:

  1. The treatment area will be thoroughly cleansed and a topical anesthetic may be placed.
  2. The wrinkle relaxer will be injected into the treatment area. In most cases, there is little discomfort associated with these injections since the needle is so tiny. However, anesthetics can usually be used when requested.
  3. Depending on your treatment goals, the treatment area, and the product you have chosen, you may need to have multiple injections and/or injection appointments.

Making Your Aftercare Easy & Convenient.

After receiving wrinkle relaxer treatment, you will be able to return to most activities immediately. The only exception to this is that it is recommended to avoid intense physical activity for 24-48 hours to prevent excess swelling or bruising. Initially, it is normal to experience swelling, bruising, or lumps around the injection site. In most cases, these symptoms will subside within a few days.

Applying ice packs or massaging the treatment sites can also help ease these symptoms. Your Love To Live skincare specialist will provide you with guidelines to follow after having wrinkle relaxer injections.
