What is A Wrinkle Relaxer?

Reducing the early cosmetic effects of repetitive facial expressions in the upper face, as well as minor wrinkles, is quick and effective with BOTOX® injections and other wrinkle relaxers at Van Dyke Yun Dermatology. BOTOX is a purified strain of botulinum toxin (type A) that temporarily weakens the contractions of the muscles that work to create certain expressions in the upper face, like laughing, smiling, and frowning. With time, the dynamic lines caused by these expressions remain in the skin, even when the muscles are fully at rest. At our Studio City, CA facility, we also offer a variety of other injectable treatments, including Dysport®, XEOMIN®, and Jeuveau®, to significantly smooth facial wrinkles by inhibiting certain facial expressions and giving the tissue overlying the muscles time to even itself naturally. Board-certified dermatologists Dr. Greg Van Dyke and Dr. Jasmine Yun are excited to provide wrinkle relaxer treatments at our Studio City, CA office.

What is the Wrinkle Relaxer Procedure?

To start this outpatient procedure, you will be asked to make various facial expressions using the upper face, such as frowning, squinting, smiling, etc., so we can determine where the injections need to be placed. The most common placement for wrinkle relaxers is between the eyebrows, on the Crow's feet, and within areas of the forehead. The wrinkle relaxer will be applied with a fine needle, followed by a cool compress to help reduce discomfort, swelling, and bruising. You can request a numbing cream to help make the procedure more comfortable, but it usually is not needed. Wrinkle relaxer treatments typically take about 10 – 15 minutes, after which you can get back to your usual activities — although strenuous exercise should be avoided for at least 24 hours. You will be asked to sleep with your head elevated for the first night and to not touch your face, which may accidentally spread the wrinkle relaxer to other areas. In most cases, it generally takes around one week before the full effects are visible; however, the results typically last 3 – 4 months. In some cases, depending on your degree of skin laxity and your specific goals, Dr. Van Dyke or Dr. Yun may suggest something else, like dermal fillers, instead of wrinkle relaxers.
