What Are Wrinkle Relaxers?
Diminishing early visible signs of aging in the upper face and forehead is possible with wrinkle relaxer injections at Dr. Corbin Plastic Surgery. Wrinkle relaxer treatments may also help those seeking to prevent fine lines and wrinkles from forming. Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Frederic Corbin performs injections at his offices in Brea, CA and Beverly Hills, CA. This facial rejuvenation procedure helps people achieve the youthful-looking results they've hoped for. Wrinkle relaxer injections use a specialized strain of botulinum toxin (type A) that temporarily slightly limits the movements of the muscles that work to create particular expressions in the upper brow region. The creases formed from these constant facial expressions are known as “dynamic” because they're the result of muscle movement. Wrinkle relaxer injectable treatments can significantly decrease the appearance of these lines by blocking these muscle movements and allowing the overlying skin to rejuvenate. Contact Dr. Corbin Plastic Surgery today to schedule a consultation.
Ideal Candidates for Wrinkle Relaxers
You may be a great candidate for wrinkle relaxers if you're looking for a noninvasive treatment to smooth or prevent visible dynamic lines on your upper face, such as forehead wrinkles, parallel lines between your brows, or Crow's feet around your eyes. If you have more pronounced lines, an injectable filler may be more suitable. Additionally, if you are over the age of 50 with moderate to severe skin laxity, then facelift surgery may be more suited to your needs for optimal results. During your initial consultation, Dr. Corbin will determine which skin rejuvenation option best fits your cosmetic goals.

How Wrinkle Relaxers Are Administered
Wrinkle relaxer injections are conveniently performed as an outpatient procedure in our Brea or Beverly Hills, CA and Beverly Hills, CA offices. We'll cleanse your skin and inject BOTOX with a fine needle, followed by a cold compress to help lessen discomfort, swelling, and bruising. During the treatment, you may feel several needle pricks, but most patients do not report severe discomfort. Injection treatments typically take around 10 – 15 minutes, after which you can get back to your normal routine almost right away.
What to Expect with Wrinkle Relaxers
After the procedure, you can return to your regular schedule, but strenuous activities like exercise should be skipped for a minimum of one day. You should sleep with your head propped up for at least one night and avoid touching your face, which could accidentally spread the treatment to other areas. The treated sections of your face may be slightly red, bruised, or swollen for a couple of days, but you should not have any lasting or serious side effects. In the majority of cases, it usually takes a few days after injections to see results.
A Rejuvenated Look
If you want a younger-looking appearance, wrinkle relaxers may be the ideal treatment for you. Wrinkle relaxer injections are a noninvasive way to smooth out facial wrinkles and prevent future dynamic facial lines for an overall rejuvenated complexion. We invite you to contact us in Orange County or Beverly Hills, CA to learn more and to book your consultation with Dr. Corbin.
