Aging is a privilege, but the fine lines and wrinkles that come with it are often unwelcomed. Not all wrinkles are created equal. Skin wrinkles range in size and severity. They are more common in areas that get the most sun exposure, such as the face, neck and arms. Your genetics also play a role in your wrinkle development. Prescription medicine, such as Botox® and Jeuveau®, are injected into muscles stopping the nerve from telling your facial muscle to flex, temporarily smoothing moderate to severe wrinkles. You may have heard of other brands of wrinkle relaxers, such as Xeomin® and Dysport®. These brands are all called neuromodulators or neurotoxins. They all work the same way, but each has a slightly different formulation. Here are some facts about wrinkle relaxers:
- FDA approved
- Minimally invasive treatment to create a rested, youthful-looking appearance
- Lasts 3-6 months, with full results in 10-14 days
- No recovery or downtime
- Safe for all skin types
- Lessons jaw tension and helps with migraine headaches
- Lifts brows to make the eyes look awake and face look less tired
- Lessen the amount of sweat produced
Since your body’s ability to naturally produce collagen starts to decline at age 25, most people start to notice they have wrinkles in their late 20’s. Unhealthy diets, smoking and sun damage can speed up collagen depletion and make you look older than you are. Neuromodulators can reduce wrinkles more effectively than any skin care solution.
