What Are Wrinkle Relaxers?

As we start to age, fine lines and wrinkles may start to remain on the face, even when totally relaxed. Caused by repetitive facial expressions, dynamic wrinkles happen when the muscle stays contracted. This creates permanent, etched lines in the skin. To reduce the appearance of dynamic wrinkles, Dr. Michelle Eagan has experience with various wrinkle relaxer products, including:

  • BOTOX®
  • Jeuveau™
  • Dysport® 

Each of these wrinkle relaxer treatments offers a variety of benefits and helps smooth and soften the complexion. At New Orleans Plastic Surgery in Louisiana, Dr. Eagan is an expert cosmetic surgeon who has a precise, artistic, and conservative technique. Please schedule a consultation with Dr. Eagan to learn more about the benefits of wrinkle relaxers.

Who Is An Ideal Candidate For Wrinkle Relaxers?

BOTOX, Jeuveau, XEOMIN, and Dysport help decrease the appearance of different types of dynamic wrinkles on the face. If you experience forehead lines, Crow's feet, smile and laugh lines, or frown lines, wrinkle relaxers can help rejuvenate your complexion. Ideal candidates for wrinkle relaxers should maintain good health, not be pregnant, and not have a botulinum toxin allergy. At your consultation, please let Dr. Eagan know about your current medications, cosmetic goals, and medical history so she can create a tailored treatment plan.

How Are Wrinkle Relaxer Injections Performed?

For most wrinkle relaxer injections, your procedure should only take about 30 minutes to complete. Generally, we can perform the treatment on the same day as your consultation. If possible, we will take you back to one of our private treatment rooms. At the beginning of your treatment, Dr. Eagan will clean your skin and apply a numbing cream to reduce discomfort. However, most patients do not need a numbing cream because the pain is minimal. Prior to your treatment, Dr. Eagan will discuss how many injections you need for the treatment area. This will vary for each type of product, but she will ensure you feel knowledgeable about your procedure. No matter the injection type, we will apply cold compresses and pressure, which will reduce minor bleeding.

What Should I Expect Following Injections?

After completing your injections, you can resume your normal activities, but you should avoid strenuous activities for the rest of the day. Additionally, we may recommend that you sleep upright and apply cold compresses to encourage healing. For several days, patients may experience swelling, bruising, and redness near the treatment sites. However, these symptoms are common, and you can easily conceal them with makeup. Additionally, each product will last a certain amount of time. Before you leave, Dr. Eagan will discuss when to schedule follow-up appointments so you can maintain your results.

How Much Do Wrinkle Relaxers cost?

Costs for wrinkle relaxers depend on the amount required to address your unique concerns. During your initial consultation, we will ask you to share your aesthetic goals so we can create a detailed treatment plan and estimate your costs. New Orleans Plastic Surgery accepts many payment methods, and we offer various specials on nonsurgical treatments.

Wrinkle Relaxers FAQ

Are wrinkle relaxers safe?

Yes, they are. Our wrinkle relaxers are FDA-approved, have clinical studies backing their safety and efficacy, and are used by millions worldwide to achieve a more refreshed, youthful appearance.

Does getting a wrinkle relaxer injection hurt?

No, most patients don't experience discomfort during their procedure. Dr. Eagan will apply a topical anesthetic cream to the treatment area to keep you comfortable and the needles used are much smaller and finer than the needles used to give vaccinations.

How long do wrinkle relaxers last?

  • BOTOX — 3 - 4 months
  • XEOMIN — 3 - 6 months
  • JEUVEAU — 5 - 6 months
  • Dysport — up to 5 months

How long does it take to get a wrinkle relaxer injection?

How long your wrinkle relaxer treatment takes depends on how many injections you need and the number of areas treated. Typically, a session can take about 30 minutes.

Are dermal fillers better than wrinkle relaxers?

Dermal fillers can smooth lines and wrinkles just as effectively as wrinkle relaxers like BOTOX and XEOMIN, but do it by filling and promoting the growth of new collagen rather than relaxing the muscles. However, some fillers can last longer than wrinkle relaxers, and that's why many patients choose to pair a wrinkle relaxer with a dermal filler for even better results.
