Wrinkle Relaxers

Do you have fine lines and wrinkles on your face? Are these skin conditions making you look older and more tired? The truth is, the first signs of ageing usually appear in different parts of your face and can start to become noticeable as early as your 20s! Fortunately, a non-surgical treatment called wrinkle relaxers can help address these signs of ageing. If you want to restore the youthful glow of your face, this procedure is exactly what you need.

At Dr Rastogi's clinic, we offer a wide range of wrinkle treatments and fillers based on the varying needs of our clients.

What exactly are wrinkle relaxers?

Wrinkle relaxers are a type of natural protein that is used to treat different types of wrinkles. When injected into your skin, it blocks the transmission of signals from the nerve to the muscle. As a result, your muscles will contract less. This decreased muscle movement significantly reduces the appearance of wrinkles in the area. Over time, the treated area becomes smoother, vibrant, and refreshed.

How are wrinkle relaxers given?

They are usually given through injections using tiny needles. The amount will depend on the size of the area, the severity of your condition, and your desired results.

How long will each treatment take?

This will depend on the size of the treatment area, your skin condition, and desired results. In general, an anti-wrinkle treatment usually take less than 30 minutes to complete. The actual injections will only need a few minutes to be given. Before the start of the procedure, we will first discuss your issues and desired results. This allows us to determine how many anti-wrinkle injections you will need.

Is the injection process painful?

The injection of wrinkle relaxers is very quick, so you will not feel significant pain. To prevent any discomfort, we will apply an ice pack over the treatment area to numb your skin. For patients with lower pain threshold, we will also apply an anaesthetic cream.

How long will the results of anti-wrinkle injections last?

When performed by a highly trained surgeon, the results can last anywhere from three to five months. For best results, we recommend a second treatment after four months. It is important to keep in mind that every patient is unique and that results can vary from individual to individual.

How much does wrinkle treatment cost?

The total costs may vary. You need to consider several factors such as the following:

  • The amount of substance administered
  • The medical facility or clinic fees
  • The number of treatments needed
  • The size of the body area
  • The type of wrinkle treatment
  • Your desired results

During your consultation, we will provide you with a detailed breakdown of the total costs associated with your treatment.

No, there is no downtime. After your treatment, you can immediately go back to work and other daily activities.

You can experience redness and small bumps at the injection site. These are normal and will resolve within a few hours.

The difference between these two treatments is very simple. While they are both used for various cosmetic concerns, they differ in how they work. Basically, wrinkle relaxers decrease muscle contractions by blocking signal transmission in the area. Dermal fillers increase the volume of the target area by injecting a sugar gel that occurs naturally in the body.

We do not recommend this skin rejuvenation procedure for patients who are:

  • Allergic to any ingredient of the anti-wrinkle injection
  • Diagnosed with a skin infection or severe illness
  • Pregnant or breastfeeding
  • Suffering from muscle or nerve problems

To ensure that you are a suitable candidate, we will first check your health history. We will also check pertinent information about your overall health to prevent complications.

You should expect to see the results of your procedure after two to three days. The results are noticeable once redness and small bumps on the area are completely gone.

We do not recommend the treatment for deep wrinkles or severe skin creases. You may need surgery to reduce the appearance of these skin imperfections.
