The onset of wrinkles can be frustrating and emotionally draining. But just because aging is inevitable doesn’t mean you can’t do anything about it. We offer wrinkle relaxers that can suppress your unwanted dynamic wrinkles with a few painless shots.
What Causes Dynamic Wrinkles
There are two types of wrinkles — static and dynamic wrinkles. Static wrinkles usually appear because of the age-related loss of collagen and elastin, and they stay on your face at all times. Dynamic wrinkles appear because of the overuse of certain facial muscles to make expressions, such as frowning, smiling, raising the eyebrows, etc. The more you use these muscles, the stronger they become, and the deeper the wrinkles appear.
Over time, the continued use of certain facial muscles and the gradual loss of collagen and elastin leads to permanent dynamic wrinkles, i.e., the dynamic wrinkles essentially become static wrinkles. When you’re young, your frown lines and forehead lines only appear when you frown or raise your eyebrows. But over time, these expression lines become firmly etched on your face, making you look constantly sad, surprised, or frustrated.
What are Wrinkle Relaxers?
Wrinkle relaxers, also known as neuromodulators, are the non-surgical solution for unwanted dynamic wrinkles or expression lines. Wrinkle relaxers are made of botulinum toxin type a, which can temporarily block communications between nerve endings and muscles. We inject wrinkle relaxers into the facial muscles responsible for your expression lines. The neurotoxin protein temporarily freezes the targeted facial muscles, thus softening the associated wrinkles. The results appear gradually over several days and last for 3 to 4 months.
