A wrinkle in time, but you won’t look a dime older. The wrinkle relaxer treatment is an injectable treatment, also known as Botox, that has become a popular treatment within the last decade. The injectable of botulinum toxin is used to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles that are formed by repetitive facial movement. The Botox beats the beauty lines by temporarily blocking the receptors in the muscle to paralyze the underlying facial muscles. When these muscles stop contracting, the lines stop forming on the skin and the current lines are protected from getting worse.
When it comes to the wrinkle relaxers, there are three types of wrinkle relaxers that are hot on the market: Botox, Dysport, and Xeomin. With each being FDA approved and with the similar ingredient of botulinum toxin, they achieve a similar result. Here are a few of the differences between the three relaxers:
- Botox: used for small and targeted areas like crows feet. FDA approved for forehead lines and frown lines.
- Dysport: great for large areas such as the forehead. Gives more natural-looking results and slightly move movement in the face.
- Xeomin: called the “naked Botox” because of its no additives or preservatives content. A great alternative if you have built resistance to the other relaxers.
