What are Wrinkle Relaxers?
Wrinkle relaxer injections are injections of the medication Botulinum Toxin A. Botox is one of the trade names under which this medication is sold. In medicine we use wrinkle relaxers to create a fresher and more youthful appearance by temporarily relaxing facial muscles. BOTOX works by blocking nerve impulses to the injected muscles. This reduces the muscle activity that causes moderate to severe lines to form. It can also be used to create better facial balance and symmetry as well as reducing the downward pull of certain muscles on the face and neck which can cause us to look sad, angry or tired. While typically people talk about 1 to 3 areas for botox, often the best approach can be to sprinkle a small amount of wrinkle relaxer into the various muscle groups through the face to give an overall freshness.

How exactly do wrinkle relaxers improve or slow the visible signs of ageing?
As we age, our skin loses its elasticity and firmness. This means it doesn’t bounce back like it did when we were younger. So when the muscles move, the skin sits into the groove. Wrinkle relaxers work by reducing the strength of the muscles that crease the skin. Although the issue is with the skin, by treating the muscles we can reduce the lines that age us. As we age, certain muscles can also become more overactive and by reducing this movement we can improve the look of ageing skin. Things like brow drop, neck appearing more lax, or sagging of the skin corners. Overactive muscles affect all of these, and so wrinkle relaxers can help reduce these signs of ageing.
