What Are Wrinkle Relaxers?
As we age, we begin to miss our smooth, youthful skin more and more. Once wrinkles start to form, it can be a jarring experience. Thankfully, there are many nonsurgical options available to help counteract the effects of aging and help you enjoy a youthful appearance once more. Wrinkle relaxers are a type of cosmetic injection that freezes muscles within the face and reduces the appearance of lines that appear when you laugh, frown, or smile. Our medical professionals at Gard Wellness Solutions are qualified to perform cosmetic injections, such as wrinkle relaxers, for patients in West Palm Beach, FL. To learn more about how wrinkle relaxers can provide you with dramatic improvements, contact our team and schedule a consultation.

Am I A Candidate For Wrinkle Relaxers?
Individuals seeking a minimally invasive option to reduce forehead wrinkles, angry 11's, frown lines, or Crow's feet may be ideal candidates for a customized wrinkle relaxer treatment plan at Gard Wellness Solutions. These can be an excellent cosmetic solution if you are experiencing noticeable "11" lines between the eyes (glabellar lines) that give you a tired, angry, or aging facial appearance. Wrinkle relaxers have gained a stellar reputation with younger women and men, as well. Though people between the ages of 20 – 30 may not yet present with the signs of aging, wrinkle relaxers like BOTOX and Dysport could be utilized as a preventive treatment to head off the aging process by temporarily minimizing or slowing the proliferation of age-related wrinkles. During your consultation, we will review your medical history to make sure there is no reason why you can't experience the amazing redefining benefits of wrinkle relaxers.
Types Of Wrinkle Relaxers
At Gard Wellness Solutions, we offer patients two brands of injectable wrinkle relaxers:
- BOTOX is a widely renowned wrinkle relaxer that has many notable purposes, both cosmetic and medical. BOTOX is most commonly injected into the forehead to diminish the appearance of wrinkles, but it can also be used for migraine management and other types of uncomfortable muscle spasms.
- Dysport is most commonly known for its ability to address the glabellar lines or the lines that form an "11" between the eyebrows.
What should I expect after treatment?
Following your wrinkle relaxer appointment, you may resume your regular schedule; still, you will need to avoid overexertion for no less than 24 hours. For the first couple of days, you will need to be careful about touching your face, as this has a chance to inadvertently circulate the formula to different regions. The treatment sites may appear pink, swollen, or bruised, but your symptoms should disappear within a matter of days. Depending on the formula we used, your new appearance might take several days to be seen. Many people experience outcomes lasting up to four months, but the exact length of your outcomes could depend on the type and amount of product used. Before you leave our office, your provider will give you thorough post-treatment information and speak about when to arrange further appointments.
Wrinkle Relaxers FAQ
How many wrinkle relaxer treatments will I need?
The number of BOTOX or Dysport injections administered will vary based on personal goals and the extent of your wrinkles. A member of our team will determine the ideal number of BOTOX or Dysport injections based on your desired aesthetic outcomes and whether you want to address the forehead, brow area, or Crow's feet. To maintain your aesthetic outcomes, our experts could recommend having wrinkle relaxer treatments every 3 – 4 months at Gard Wellness Solutions.
How long do BOTOX and Dysport last?
Most patients can expect their BOTOX results to last about 3 — 4 months and Dysport to last up to five months.
What's the difference between Dysport and BOTOX?
Both Dysport and BOTOX are cosmetic injections to treat dynamic wrinkles. Dysport results generally develop quicker compared to BOTOX. Dysport also has longer-lasting results than other relaxers, and it has a better spread. In your consult, your injector will help you understand if Dysport or another wrinkle relaxer is ideal for your treatment.
Can I have wrinkle relaxers with additional aesthetic procedures?
Wrinkle relaxers often pair well with additional nonsurgical options at Gard Wellness Solutions for patients who prefer to reduce signs of aging. If you experience more pronounced and extensive lines and wrinkles, our professionals may recommend incorporating a dermal filler for maximum results.
Is there a difference between fillers and wrinkle relaxers?
While wrinkle reducers, such as BOTOX Cosmetic and Dysport, are used to smooth facial lines by temporarily preventing your muscle movements, dermal fillers are a separate category of cosmetic injections that increase volume in the face. Fillers are designed to volumize gaunt-looking areas and fill in static wrinkles. A member of our team can discuss if you may benefit from a filler to complement your BOTOX or Dysport results.
Smooth Facial Lines Instantly
Let worrying about wrinkles be a thing of the past.
