Botox®, Dysport®, Xeomin®, and Jeuveau® – Get the Skin You’ve Always Wanted

Have you been seeking a pick me up? A non-surgical way to combat looking exhausted or tired? Wrinkle relaxers at New York Skin & Vein Centers work at treating the wrinkles you already have and prevents new wrinkles from forming. All of these cosmetic injections are purified botulinum toxin which blocks the muscle from contracting. This prevents the movement that makes you look tired and older.

These treatments are great for maintaining your youthful appearance. The differences between these four relaxers are minimal. While they all last 3 to 4 months on average, there are subtle differences between them.

How Do Botox® & Wrinkle Relaxers Work?

As you get older, the skin begins to lose its elasticity, leading to the formation of fine lines and wrinkles. These lines, around your eyes and mouth, tend to make you look tired or older than you are. Botox® and other wrinkle relaxers smooth facial expression and minimize muscle movement by putting the muscles which create lines to sleep. This gives you a more youthful and well-rested appearance. With regular treatments, wrinkle relaxers offer continued improvement for a subtle and refreshed appearance around your eyes and forehead.

Am I a Good Candidate for Botox® & Wrinkle Relaxers?

Wrinkle relaxers are great options for men and women over 21 who would like to reduce the visibility of lines and wrinkles in the upper face.

The most common areas NYSVC uses wrinkle relaxers for include:

  • Forehead or Frown Lines (the “11’s”)
  • Crows feet and Smile LInes (around the eyes)
  • Eyebrows (to lift the brow)

Women who are pregnant or breastfeeding and people who have certain neuromuscular conditions should avoid muscle relaxing injections.
