Treatment Overview

Wrinkle relaxers work primarily by blocking muscle contraction. This softens the surrounding muscles and leads to fewer fine lines on the skin’s surface. The entire procedure usually takes less than 30 minutes. Here’s how it works:

  1. Your skin will be cleaned and pretreatment photos will be taken.
  2. Your provider will develop a treatment plan customized to you.
  3. A small dose is injected just beneath the skin’s surface near the targeted areas using a tiny needle.
  4. Return to daily routines with a few precautions in place.

Common injection sites include:

  • Frown Lines
  • Forehead Lines
  • Crow’s feet
  • Neck Bands
  • Jawline to slim large masseters and reduce TMJ symptoms
  • Gummy smiles
  • Lip Flip

Pre-Treatment Guidelines

Here are some tips for preparing before treatment:

  • Schedule a consult: Before your first treatment, schedule a consultation with one of our Licensed Medical Providers to determine which treatment is best for you.
  • Plan ahead: Schedule your appointment at least 2 weeks before special events to allow for swelling and or bruising that is common with dermal filler treatments.
  • Avoid blood-thinning products: Certain supplements or medications can cause bruising or bleeding. Discontinue at least 3 days before your treatment after talking with your doctor about changing or stopping a prescription medication. The most common products discontinued before treatment are:
  • Aspirin
  • Gingko Biloba
  • Garlic
  • Ginseng
  • St. John’s Wort
  • Flaxseed Oil
  • Cod Liver Oil
  • Vitamin A
  • Vitamin E
  • Essential fatty acids

Discontinue 24 hours before your treatment:

  • Alcohol
  • Caffeine
  • Niacin
  • Cigarettes
  • Avoid Makeup
  • Updates: Notify your skin care specialist about skin rashes, cold sores, or new skin conditions.

Post-Treatment Guidelines

After your Botox or Dysport procedure is complete, take a few precautions to get the most out of your treatment.

Avoid Post-Treatment:

  • High-intensity physical activity.
  • Contact with your face, especially near the injection site.
  • Getting any other facial treatments for at least 2 weeks.
  • Massaging, rubbing, or laying on your face for at least 12 hours to prevent the Botox from migrating.

What to Expect from Your Treatment

You’ll begin seeing an improvement in fine lines and wrinkles near the injection site that peak at 2 weeks. Over the next three months your muscle movement will return to baseline. For this reason, most people schedule treatments every 3 to 4 months.
