Injectable wrinkle relaxers use a naturally, purified protein that relaxes wrinkle-causing muscles. The injections effectively smooth frown lines, forehead lines and crows feet (lines around the eyes) with results lasting up to four months.
This treatment will be performed by a Doctor or Registered Nurse.
Every wrinkle relaxer treatment plan is customised to your goals and needs. Only a qualified clinician can tell you how many units are required for each area after a thorough consultation. The severity of your lines and wrinkles also help determine how many units you will need.
Wrinkle relaxers are actually absorbed into the neuromuscular junction and usually take 2-4 days to start working. The maximum effect may not be seen for up to two weeks. At this time, we will review your treatment to make sure it is perfect, ensuring you achieve natural-looking results. So, while results are highly effective, they do require some patience.
Patients may return to their normal activities immediately after the procedure. However, it is advisable to avoid intense exercise for the remainder of the day. Patients should also remain upright for the following 4-6 hours and not massage the injected area or use active cosmeceuticals that evening. There may be some slight swelling and redness too but this subsides within a day or two.
