Wrinkle relaxer treatments
Over time, noticeable signs of ageing may occur as a result of multiple factors. Loss of collagen and elastin in the body means that the skin becomes more fragile and less able to retain its shape. Combined with lifestyle factors, sun exposure, and the continued use of facial muscles, lines and wrinkles can begin to impact one’s appearance. Many may feel that wrinkles make them appear tired, angry, or older than they are.
As a result, we at Begone Skin & Body offer treatment plans for wrinkle relaxers, helping patients attain smoother skin and a younger appearance.
Types of wrinkles
When it comes to ageing, one of the most common concerns is the formation of fine lines and wrinkles. There are two types of wrinkles: dynamic and static.
Dynamic wrinkles are those that appear with the use of facial muscles when pulling an expression. Static wrinkles are those that are permanently ingrained into the skin at rest. Static wrinkles develop over time and are caused by the frequent movement of facial muscles and gravity. They are also influenced by the slow decline of collagen and elastin in the skin, fat pad atrophy and descent, bone reabsorption, and general volume loss.
Wrinkle relaxers work to both reduce the appearance of static wrinkles and prevent further static wrinkles from forming.
Revitalise with anti-wrinkle injections
At Begone Skin & Body in Perth, our skilled cosmetic nurse injectors use premium, non-permanent anti-wrinkle injections.
Anti-wrinkle injections, or wrinkle relaxers, are a form of cosmetic injectable treatment. These are used to treat or prevent wrinkles by temporarily paralyzing specific muscles. Wrinkle relaxers are used as both a preventative measure to avoid visible signs of aging or to help soften the appearance of static wrinkles (wrinkles that are visible when the face is at rest). The longevity of anti-wrinkle injections varies from person to person and depends on the product used, which is decided based on the area of concern.
- Forehead and brows
- Frown lines and sides of the mouth
- Crow’s feet
- Bunny lines
- Gummy smile
- “Smokers” or perioral lines
- Dimpled or “cobblestone” chin
- Neck / platysmal bands
How wrinkle relaxers work
Anti-wrinkle injections are a widely used and trusted treatment made from a purified protein. They are an excellent, non-invasive way to soften, lift, and smooth the facial skin without needing invasive surgery.
Since lines and wrinkles are often a result of frequent muscle movement, the treatment targets and relaxes the facial muscles. The injections work by blocking a chemical signal to the brain that makes the muscles contract. By relaxing the muscles, the overlying skin is also smoothed. This both reduces existing wrinkles and helps prevent new static wrinkles from forming, creating a smoother and more youthful look.
Anti-wrinkle injections can target different areas, depending on which lines or wrinkles the patient is concerned about. The most common areas are generally around the eyes, forehead, and mouth areas. In some cases, wrinkle relaxers can also treat tension headaches by relaxing the frontalis muscles.
Your consultation at Begone Skin & Body
You will need to discuss your ideal outcomes with one of our clinic nurses in order to develop a suitable treatment plan. During a consultation, we will speak to you about your desired results and reasons for seeking wrinkle relaxers, as well as your general health. You should inform us of any medical conditions, since this will enable us to design a treatment plan that takes your health into account.
Not only will your consult help us decide if you are a good candidate, but it is also a chance for you to discuss any concerns or ask any questions. We will outline your treatment plan in detail, explain what is required, and how you can care for your treated sites afterwards.
During treatment for anti-wrinkle injections, we will approach the procedure according to the details outlined in your consultation, based on your needs and aspirations. These details will determine the location, injection points, as well as the amount of muscle relaxer required.
A treatment generally takes between 15 to 30 minutes, performed by one of our highly skilled clinical nurses. We will inject into specific muscles and at a precise depth in order to have the desired smoothing and relaxing effect. As a result, the treatment softens lines and wrinkles whilst triggering healthy blood flow and collagen, leaving your features naturally smoother and firmer.
Most patients find the process comfortable, and typically numbing is not required.
Wrinkle relaxers aftercare
Your skin should heal quickly, provided that you take care to follow your aftercare instructions, which may include:
- Reduce your facial movements
- Avoid sunlight and heat exposure
- Avoid alcohol and smoking
- Avoid exercise for 24 hours
- Keep the treated area clean
- Do not rub or irritate your treated sites
- Stay upright for the first four hours after treatment
- Sleep on your back with your head slightly lifted
In the two weeks following the procedure, your treated areas may be more sensitive than normal. To aid the healing process, we advise that you avoid treatments such as facials, waxing, and peels. You should also use a high SPF sunscreen in order to protect your skin from harmful UV rays.
Your clinic nurse will offer further guidance on how to care for your treated sites and promote the best outcome. It is important to listen and follow these guidelines, as they will help you avoid risks and get the most out of your anti-wrinkle injections.
