What are Wrinkle Relaxers?

Also known as injectable neurotoxins, wrinkle relaxers are used to treat and prevent fine lines and wrinkles on the face. They are typically used to soften forehead lines, crow’s feet around the eyes, and vertical lines between the brows. This procedure at Peak Plastic Surgery Center in Denver, CO typically takes 10-15 minutes and does not require any downtime. These products are strategically injected directly into the contracting muscles responsible for forming wrinkles.

Over the course of 10-14 days, the muscles begin to relax, revealing a rejuvenated complexion. There are additional uses for line-softening neurotoxins, including jawline slimming, reduction of a gummy smile, lip flip, treatment for hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating), and softening of the lines in the neck.

How Do Wrinkle Relaxers Work?

No matter the brand, wrinkle relaxers are injected in the same manner into the same muscles. They work to reduce specific muscle activity, which improves and prevents fine lines and wrinkles throughout the face. During a thorough consultation at our Denver, CO facility, our team will determine which wrinkle relaxer option is ideal for you and your aesthetic goals.

What Does Maintenance of Wrinkle Relaxers Look Like?

Injectable neurotoxin results are not permanent and typically last 3-4 months. Over time, consistent patients may be able to extend periods between treatments or decrease the number of units used. Results will be seen after one single treatment; however, neuromodulator sessions need to be repeated on a consistent timeline (every 3-4 months) to continue to see results.
