What is a Wrinkle Relaxer?

What is a wrinkle relaxer? A wrinkle relaxer is an injection that smooths out wrinkles by relaxing the muscle that causes them. Common wrinkle relaxers include Botox, Xeomin, and Dysport. Wrinkle relaxers can treat a variety of areas including, the frown lines, forehead lines, crow’s feet, gummy smiles, lip lines, necklines, the masseter muscle for teeth grinding, and more!

The treatment is simple and only takes about 15-20 minutes; it consists of just a few injections that relax the muscles in the face which contract repeatedly and cause visible lines to form over time. Wrinkle Relaxers are a great treatment for both men and women. Some clients may experience slight discomfort, but any discomfort is minimal and brief, and there are generally no major side effects, (some clients, however, may experience slight and temporary bruising at the injection site, but this can be covered up by makeup). To reduce your chances of bruising, please see our Bruising Protocol Sheet, text, call or email us for a copy of our bruising protocol.
Wrinkle relaxers are a no downtime treatment. You’ll walk out of the office looking like you had nothing done. Patients will start to see great improvements in their skin’s appearance within 7 to 14 days. The results vary per patient and will typically last for 3 to 6 months.

What is a Dermal Filler?

A dermal filler is an injectable solution such as collagen, hyaluronic acid and calcium hydroxylapatite (CaHA) that rejuvenates facial skin by reducing or eliminating wrinkles, enhances lips, contours facial features, and replaces soft-tissue volume loss.
With age, our skin becomes more susceptible to wrinkles and sagging. Exposure to sun and years of muscle movement (squinting, chewing, smiling) contribute to tissue breakdown of the skin.
Dermal fillers are temporary to long-lasting solutions. Various types of facial fillers are available; each is designed with one or several purposes, such as wrinkle reduction, replacing volume loss, lifting or contouring facial features, and enhancing lips. Our qualified medical professional can help you determine which  injectable dermal filler treatments are right for you. !


The average length of filler injections is about 30-60 minutes per session, depending on the individual and the amount of areas being treated. Some of the most common side effects include temporary redness, swelling, tenderness, and bruising at the injection site. To decrease your chances of swelling and bruising, please see our Bruising Protocol Sheet. You can text, call or email us to request a copy of our bruising protocol.
Dermal filler injections require very minimal downtime, allowing patients to return to work and their normal activities directly following treatment. Yet for the first 24-48 hours, individuals may be instructed to refrain from strenuous activities. In general, the results from most injectable fillers are instant! Results can last 6-18 months depending on the type of filler used.
