What Are Wrinkle Relaxers?
When you look at yourself in a mirror, do you see fine lines or wrinkles on your brow and near your eyes? Commonly called dynamic wrinkles, these skin changes develop from repetitious facial expressions, like squinting, smiling, and frowning. As we become older, these lines and wrinkles ultimately stay put and can make us look haggard, older, and aged. With the use of BOTOX® and Dysport® cosmetic treatments, at Refining Beauty, we can often temporarily minimize the appearance of moderate to severe frown lines, horizontal forehead creases, and Crow's feet. Dr. James Leffingwell and his experienced team are excited to offer BOTOX and Dysport injections in Midlothian, TX, as a minimally invasive solution to help individuals obtain a more youthful, refreshed result. We welcome you to get in touch with our facility today to learn more about these age-defying treatments and schedule a private consultation.
Wrinkle Relaxers Reviews
"I originally started with Cross Timbers for my husband’s tonsils and allergies. Then again for my daughters tongue tie. All of these were done with Dr. Luke Shellenberger (at the Mansfield office.) In talking with the staff I found out they have a 🗣 MEDSPA at the midlothian office! The ball has not been dropped on ANY level with this practice. At the Midlothian office the receptionist Angela is on her A game ALWAYS! Dr. L is a hoot and a fantastic dr! I went in there originally for Botox. I had Becky and Rebecca in there assisting him (both nurses and fun personalities) which was VERY nice and comforting. Most medspas do NOT have nurses, some places they’re not even MA’s which is ridiculous. After Botox I started doing other things to help with my face because I didn’t want fillers, so they gave me some other options. His Medspa “guru” (as I like to call her) is nurse Rebecca. She is so informative through the whole process and aftercare. EXCELLENT bedside manner. So far I’ve done Opus (which is plasma), Clearlift, and Harmony. I haven’t been disappointed with any of these results. Below is a (creepy) picture of me with my very first treatment results. I’m making the face so you can see where the Botox worked SO well on my forehead. We are working on wrinkles, lightening my freckles/age spots, and tightening. I can’t wait to see what the end results are! We have currently started working on my HORRIBLE scars on my arms from getting Brachioplasty. They also run specials every month which I’ve taken full advantage of!! :) The only thing I wish was different would be a separate entrance for MedSpa only but, to my knowledge this part of the practice is still growing so hopefully I’ll see it in the future!"- K.W. / Google / Apr 08, 2022
Do I Need Wrinkle Relaxers?
Adults who desire a minimally invasive alternative to plastic surgery to smooth forehead wrinkles, frown lines, or Crow's feet may be excellent candidates for wrinkle relaxer treatments at Refining Beauty. It can be a good cosmetic solution if you are experiencing obvious "11" lines between the eyes (glabellar lines) that give you a withered or aging appearance. BOTOX and Dysport injections have grown in favor with younger men and women, as well. Although patients in their 20s and 30s may not yet present with the signs of aging, BOTOX and Dysport can provide a preventive option to head off the aging process by temporarily minimizing or slowing the development of facial wrinkles.
How Do Wrinkle Relaxers Work?
BOTOX and Dysport are a filtered strain of botulinum toxin type A. It works to temporarily relax the muscles that assist with dynamic movements, allowing the overlying skin to rebound over time, reducing the appearance of lines and wrinkles while helping prevent new wrinkles from forming.
During your first consultation at Refining Beauty, Dr. Leffingwell or a member of his team will carry out a facial examination to select which areas require treatment. Since BOTOX and Dysport can be provided during a fast, in-office service, your wrinkle relaxer injections can usually be administered in the same appointment. The formula will be injected into the designated areas of your forehead or face using a fine-gauge needle. Wrinkle relaxer treatments take around a few minutes to administer, and many patients notice only mild discomfort (such as a pinching or pinprick feeling). After your visit, you are welcome to leave our facility and carry on with your normal daily activities.
Wrinkle Relaxers FAQ
What's the difference between wrinkle relaxers and fillers?
While wrinkle relaxers like BOTOX are used to smooth facial creases by temporarily blocking your muscle movements, dermal fillers are a different category of cosmetic options that enhance facial volume. Fillers are intended to plump hollow features and reduce static wrinkles. Dr. Leffingwell can decide if you could benefit from a filler (like Restylane® or JUVÉDERM®) to further enhance your BOTOX results.
Can wrinkle relaxers be paired with other nonsurgical treatments?
For those who would like to reduce signs of aging, wrinkle relaxers typically pair well with other nonsurgical services at Refining Beauty. If you notice more pronounced and severe facial wrinkles and creases, our professionals might suggest incorporating a filler for optimal outcomes. To further improve your younger-looking glow, Dr. Leffingwell may provide additional complementary services, like facials or microneedling.
At what age should I start getting wrinkle relaxers?
As long as you are over the age of 18, the question is up to you. While many people think wrinkle relaxer treatments are for older people addressing the signs of aging, more and more younger people in their 20s and 30s are starting to get wrinkle relaxer treatments as a preventative measure against lines, wrinkles, and signs of aging.
