Trouvé Medspa offers a range of wrinkle relaxers to enhance and revitalize the appearance of your skin. When injected, they relax the muscles, prevent skin from creasing and causing wrinkles, and give you a younger appearance. While they don’t necessarily stop the aging process, wrinkle relaxers are great options if you’re dissatisfied with the lines and wrinkles on your face.
We offer three types of injectable wrinkle relaxers: Botox, Xeomin, and Dysport.
Botox smooths lines in the forehead, between the eyebrows, and in the crow’s feet area. During your treatment, our specialist will inject very small amounts of Botox directly into the muscles beneath your facial skin. This temporarily relaxes the muscles, smoothing the lines created by muscle contraction in that area of the face. A single treatment can last for at least three months, and results will vary from patient to patient. Side effects are usually temporary and mild.
Dysport is FDA-approved for treating frown lines between the eyes, crow’s feet, and forehead lines. Dysport contains small molecules, which leads to faster results. You may notice facial changes in as little as three days with Dysport. Results typically last for 3 months.
Just like Botox and Dysport, Xeomin is FDA-approved for frown lines. Xeomin is also different in that it includes no additives, meaning that there is less risk of your body forming antibodies to resist it. You should notice results within the first three to four days following treatment. Xeomin lasts about as long as the other wrinkle relaxers do.
How does it work?
During the treatment, a very fine needle is injected into each specific muscle for a few seconds with only the minor discomfort of a tiny pinch. We also apply topical anesthetic cream or ice prior to the treatment to minimize discomfort and redness.
Are there any side effects?
You may experience slight swelling at the injection sites, but you can go about your day immediately after receiving treatment. You may also have slight bruising at the injection area.
