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:
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.
Wrinkle Relaxers Reviews
"I met with Dr. Eagan to explore options for mimimizing the signs of facial aging that I have been noticing for the last couple of years. I'm 39 and my crows feet and "worry wrinkle" have been bothering me every time I look in the mirror! Dr. Eagan recommended Xeomin injections around my eyes and on my forehead to solve the crows feet problem and, though I had not considered it before, Radiesse in my cheeks to bring some lift and youthfulness back into my face. Dr. Eagan was personable and kind and made me feel at ease from the start, just as the friend who referred me to her said she would. She explained how the procedure would happen and what I could expect. I was nervous as I'd never had facial injections before, but she was gentle and the procedure was quick. I could tell she knew what she was doing. Initially I was startled by the cheek swelling I experienced as a result of the Radiesse injections (Dr. Eagan told me this would happen) but after a couple of days the swelling went down and I now look years younger. I look fresh and rested every morning when I wake up thanks to the Xeomin. I am looking forward to my next treatments with Dr. Eagan - it is so fun to be out in the world and have strangers think I'm 29 instead of 39!"- J.C. / Google / Jun 05, 2018
"Dr. Eagan is great! She has an excellent bed-side style and is very knowledgeable. She explained everything thoroughly before she started the procedure and her technique for filler/Botox is awesome. I feel I look at least 15 years younger, yet very, very, natural-which is the key word. -M. Phelan, CE, RA, CIDESCO, Founder of Concepts Institute of Advanced Esthetics"- M.P. / Yelp / Sep 22, 2016
"Absolutely best plastic surgeon on the south shore. Well run office, excellent pre-visit communication and I felt important. Dr. Eagan listened to me and was easy to talk to. First time Botox and filler client; painless and professional. I will return."- J.G. / Yelp / Feb 26, 2021

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.
Our Injection Technique
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 to Expect
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.
