Let's get started!

What is Botox? 

Botox is a brand of Botolin Toxin rebranded by Allergan over 20 years ago from treating just headaches to fine lines and wrinkles. Medicine has come a long way in those 20 years and there are now over 5 different options of “Botox”. We find that our patients benefit from having different options that compliment their anatomy, as well as options that were created with more sophisticated and contemporary methods to provide patients with a targeted and anatomy specific treatment.

For the purpose of including all Toxin options on the market we will refer to them as Wrinkle Relaxers moving forward in this article. Wrinkle Relaxers are most commonly employed to treat frown lines between the eyebrows, but it can also be used to smooth out wrinkles on the forehead, around the eyes, neck as well as lower facial tox to treat clenching, grinding, and prevent a permanent frown that can develop with age.

The Procedure

The procedure itself is quick, usually taking only a few minutes, and is done in office. It is relatively painless and requires no downtime, so you can go back to your daily routine right after the treatment.

The use of Wrinkle Relaxers is a popular cosmetic treatment because it is safe and effective. However, it's important to have the treatment done by a qualified professional to ensure the best results and to minimize the risk of side effects.

How Do Wrinkle Relaxers Work?

When a Wrinkle Relaxer is injected into the skin, it temporarily relaxes the muscles that cause wrinkles. This allows the skin to smooth out, giving the face a more youthful appearance. 

Basically, Wrinkle Relaxers works by blocking the signals that the nerves send to the muscles. This causes the muscles to relax and the wrinkles to disappear. The effects of a Wrinkle Relaxer istemporary, but they typically last for three to six months.

How Long Do Wrinkle Relaxers Last?

The results of a Wrinkle Relaxer usually last between three and six months. After this time, the patient will need a follow-up treatment, though how long the results actually last will depend on how quickly your body metabolizes the substance.


A Wrinkle Relaxer is a safe and effective way to relax wrinkles and rejuvenate your appearance. It is a quick, non-surgical procedure that can be performed in office and requires no downtime.

The results of Wrinkle Relaxers usually last between three and six months but can vary depending on the person and the dosage administered. If you want to enhance your skin's appearance, consider Wrinkle Relaxers as a treatment option.
