Injectable Wrinkle Relaxers

aBotulinum Toxin Injections, aka, Injectable Wrinkle Relaxers (IWR) are a cosmetic injection containing a purified form of protein from bacteria known as Clostridium Botulinum. This protein temporarily reduces muscle activity in your face, which helps minimize frown lines, forehead lines, lip lines, crow’s feet and more. Stopping these muscles from doing their regular contractions helps prevent these lines from getting deeper and reduces them for a limited time. aBotulinum Toxin injections involve a series of subcutaneous or intramuscular injections designed to weaken certain muscles that cause skin wrinkling. Weakening of the injected muscles begins to be apparent after 2-3 days with the peak effect being reached after 14 days. Results can last 2-5 months. The procedure can be repeated after 4 months; however, injection given at less than 3-month intervals may not produce a noticeable effect.

What is aBotulinum Toxin?

aBotulinum Toxin is a neuromodulator produced from the bacterium clostridium botulinum. This is also known as Botulinum Type A and, when used in controlled amounts, can reduce or remove fine lines and wrinkles. The injectable works by blocking the nerve signals in the muscles in the face to the brain. When used incorrectly, the toxin can be quite dangerous and can present unwanted botulism symptoms. But in the right hands, such as a board-certified dermatologist or plastic surgeon, this is safe and effective.
When the relaxer blocks the nerve signals in the face, the muscles cannot contract as freely as before. This lack of movement smooths out the skin and significantly reduces the appearance of wrinkles. This was the first FDA-approved Botulinum Type A neuromodulator, coming onto the market in 1989, before approval for cosmetic use in 2002. It’s since become the flagship brand in the injectables space. Furthermore, it can be used for a range of medical conditions as well.

What is Dysport?

Since its inception, several companies have brought injectables on the market to help with wrinkles. Dysport is considered its European counterpart, serving over 60 countries worldwide. In 2009, the FDA approved Dysport for use in the United States. Since then, it’s been proven to be an effective, non-invasive treatment for wrinkles, and fine lines. Dysport had medical uses before approval for cosmetic use.

Like other popular wrinkle relaxers, Botulinum Type A is Dysport’s active ingredient. Once injected, Dysport disables the nerves around the injection site. This limits muscle movement, relaxing the area and smoothing out the skin. However, Dysport positions itself primarily to treat moderate to severe forehead lines and glabellar lines sometimes called frown lines or 11 lines. Your board-certified dermatologist should have access to both products and can even use them both in different parts of your face.

10/10 recommend! I’ve thought about getting injectables for over a year now and finally decided to go with Wellness at the Spa and it was an amazing experience. I was given all the information about what was going to happen and given the price before anything else. I love that because if you don’t want to proceed you are given that option. I will be going back for all my needs!
