Neuromodulators, more commonly referred to as wrinkle relaxers, is a premier way of addressing fine lines and wrinkles around various areas of the face. These wonderful, relaxing treatments are usually minimally invasive and over before you know it!
For those who may not be familiar with the amazing benefits of wrinkle relaxers, we’re here to spill the tea and give you all of the (not so ) best kept secrets!
What are wrinkle relaxers?
When you’re happy, when you’re upset, when you’re confused or overwhelmed, our feelings are usually reflected on our face in a series of frequently expressed emotions. While these emotions and how we express them are just a part of being who we are, they can wind up leaving us with long lasting marks on our skin that are a little less than flattering. Thankfully, neuromodulators are here to save the day.
What is the purpose of wrinkle relaxers?
Wrinkle relaxers are primarily used to slow down the development, and reduce the appearance of dynamic wrinkles. These wrinkles are formed when muscles in the face that are used on a regular, repetitive basis, begin to form fine lines, crows feet, and wrinkles in the skin. When the relaxer is applied to the area(s) of concern, the muscle becomes paralyzed and the skin has a moment to relax and smooth over.
How do you prepare for wrinkle relaxers?
No matter how busy we all seem to be, it is important to prepare for your relaxers by meeting with a professional and going over the process. Discuss what you hope to achieve during the appointment, as well as any allergies, questions, or concerns you may have.
What do results look like?
Botox results and results from other wrinkle reduction treatments can be summed up with just one word: youthful. While we can’t take you back in time, administering facial relaxers into problem areas can result in healthy, youthful looking skin without the need for heavily invasive plastic surgery techniques. The ability to take a few years off your skin has never been more attainable.
What type of wrinkle relaxers are there?
Believe it or not, there is more than just a single type of wrinkle relaxer. Although a brand or two seem to be the most frequently referenced, there are a number of options for various budgets and targeted muscle groups.
Used so frequently it’s become almost synonymous with the word “facial relaxer”, Botox fillers are no doubt one of the most popular products when trying to treat forehead lines, frown lines, and wrinkles.This purified protein treatment works by temporarily blocking signals from your brain to the nerves in the muscle moving the skin.
From an ingredient standpoint, Daxxify uses zero animal products and instead contains peptides. Similarly to Botox, this treatment is also FDA approved to treat wrinkles, smile lines, and other deep wrinkles on the face.
What does the aftercare of wrinkle relaxers look like?
Although the process for relaxing wrinkles in the common areas of your face is relatively simple and straightforward, you will need to follow a short list of aftercare recommendations for the best, natural looking results.
Avoid any strenuous activities
When it comes to aftercare, your first week following your treatment is pivotal. To ensure that your injection site settles effectively, avoid strenuous activities or laying / applying pressure to the treated area. Failure to do so could result in displacement of the product.
Don’t consume any alcohol after receiving wrinkle relaxers
Put the party on hold! Alcohol can impact healing time and quality, so try to wait at least 24 hours before having a drink.
For 1 week, do not receive any cross treatment
Give yourself some time! Be patient and wait at least a week before pursuing any other treatments on or around the face.
Follow up with your skincare professional
Last, but certainly not least, make sure you keep your provider in the loop! If anything seems off, or if your results are not what you expected, try and discuss your options with your medical professional!
