Wrinkle Relaxers at The Diamond Med Spa

Frown Lines • "Angry 11's" • Crows Feet • Forehead Lines

As our skin ages and loses pliability, facial movements cause the development of creases and wrinkles in our face. Wrinkle relaxers are neuromodulators used in aesthetics to reduce the facial muscles’ ability to contract. This prevents further development of creases and wrinkles on the face. 

The treatment involves a series of small injections that are administered directly into the targeted areas, which usually take around 10-15 minutes. The effects of wrinkle relaxers typically last for around 3-6 months, after which patients can undergo further treatment if desired.

Popular brand names carried by The Diamond Med Spa are Botox, Xeomin, and Dysport

Botox

Botox is a cosmetic treatment that is formulated to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles on the face. Made from the botulinum toxin, a naturally occurring protein, Botox works by temporarily paralyzing the muscles that cause wrinkles to form.

If you’re looking for a quick, non-surgical solution to your wrinkles, Botox may be the perfect product for you.

Xeomin

Xeomin injects purified botulinum toxin to smooth out wrinkles and lines in the face. It relaxes facial muscles, reducing wrinkles around the eyes, forehead, and mouth, as well as preventing new wrinkles. By blocking muscle-contraction neurotransmitters, Xeomin softens overactive muscles causing wrinkles. Results last up to six months, requiring no downtime or recovery period. Xeomin is safe and effective, making it ideal for those wanting to rejuvenate their appearance without surgery.

Dysport

Dysport is a leading muscle relaxant that has received FDA clearance and is medically approved for treating neurological conditions and wrinkles. The medication shares similarities with its counterpart, Botox, but uses a different formula. In particular, Dysport relies on the botulinum toxin to mitigate problems such as cervical dystonia, blepharospasm, spasticity, and wrinkles. Dysport has become a household name for its track record of mitigating neurological afflictions and providing relief to patients dealing with these conditions.
