When fine lines and wrinkles continue to develop on facial skin, it makes patients feel self-conscious about their appearance. They may feel they look older than they really are when it’s actually just the natural process of aging. Skin laxity occurs, and with that comes imperfections. Fortunately, wrinkle relaxers are a way to treat fine lines and wrinkles on the face without invasive surgeries. Wrinkle relaxers are a treatment that uses a specialized injection designed to smooth the skin and take years off of your appearance in a single appointment! At Manhattan Medspa of New York, New York, we are excited to offer this and many other aesthetic services to help you look your best!
Wrinkle relaxers are a treatment designed to target dynamic wrinkles caused by muscle tension. This often includes wrinkles near the upper third of the face, such as between the eyebrows, around the eyes, and on the forehead. The wrinkle relaxer works when injected directly into the muscles around these areas, relaxing the muscles to reduce unwanted tension on the face.
Wrinkle relaxers are different from dermal fillers, another cosmetic injectable treatment used to treat fine lines and wrinkles. These injectables use hyaluronic acid in a gel carrier, injected directly into the impressions of the skin to fill the wrinkles and smooth the skin. These have more immediate results but work differently than wrinkle relaxers.
During your initial appointment with our team of professionals, you can educate yourself further on the various ways to enhance the skin with wrinkle relaxers and other cosmetic treatments available at Manhattan Medspa. We evaluate your skin, talk to you about what areas you would like to correct, and discuss your medical history to determine if wrinkle relaxers are the best treatment for your needs.
Wrinkle relaxers are done right in our office with local anesthetics to ensure patients are completely comfortable during their procedure. Patients relax while we pinpoint the muscles of the face that will provide the desired results. Injections take just a few minutes, and most patients are able to return to their day uninterrupted and with minimal discomfort. While the results are not seen immediately, they often appear within the first week and will remain for several months before reinjections may be needed to maintain the changes.
Wrinkle relaxers continue to be a safe, reliable, and affordable way of smoothing fine lines and wrinkles of the face that contribute to an aged appearance.
