Five Things to Know About Wrinkle Relaxers Before Your First Appointment

Five Things to Know About Wrinkle Relaxers Before Your First Appointment at Alli B + Co in Yukon Oklahoma

Wrinkle relaxers, often referred to as neuromodulators, are cosmetic treatments used to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Botox is the most well-known brand, but other brands, such as Dysport and Xeomin, are also widely used. 

These treatments temporarily paralyze the muscles that cause wrinkles for a smoother, more youthful appearance. If you’re curious about trying a wrinkle relaxer treatment for the first time, it’s essential to understand how these treatments work and what you can expect.

How Do Wrinkle Relaxers Work?

Wrinkle relaxers block nerve signals to the muscles where they are injected. This keeps the muscles from contracting, which can help to smooth out wrinkles and lines caused by facial expressions. 

The effects of the best wrinkle relaxers can last three to six months, depending on the individual and the specific product used. During your consultation, your provider will discuss the best options for your specific concerns and goals.

The Treatment Process

Getting a wrinkle relaxer treatment is relatively quick and straightforward. The appointment typically lasts about 30 minutes, including a brief consultation and the injection process. Before the injections, the provider may apply a numbing cream to minimize any discomfort. 

The injections are made with a very fine needle, and most people experience only minor discomfort, similar to a pinprick. After the therapy, you can return to your normal activities almost immediately, although you might experience some slight redness at the injection sites.

What to Expect After the Treatment

After receiving a wrinkle relaxer treatment, you might notice some initial results within a few days, but the full effect typically takes one to two weeks to become visible. It’s important to follow your practitioner’s aftercare instructions to get the best results and minimize the risk of side effects.

Usual side effects include slight bruising or swelling at the injection sites, which usually subside within a few days. To prevent the product from spreading to unintended areas, avoid rubbing the treated areas and strenuous exercise for the first 24 hours.

Choosing the Right Provider

Selecting the right provider for your wrinkle relaxer treatment is best for achieving the best results and ensuring your safety. Look for a qualified, experienced professional specializing in cosmetic injections. During your initial consultation, ask about their experience, training, and the types of products they use. 

It’s also a good idea to ask to see before-and-after photos of previous clients. A reputable provider will take the time to know your concerns and goals and recommend the best wrinkle relaxer treatment tailored to your needs.

Here’s our list in case you’re looking for answers on how and in what areas we can help you. 

Forehead Lines

We recommend Dysport for the most natural-looking results. It prevents and treats moderate to severe fine lines and wrinkles. This treatment targets the horizontal lines across your forehead, often the first signs of aging. By relaxing the muscles responsible for these lines, you can achieve a smoother, more relaxed look that enhances your overall facial harmony.

Scowl Lines

The wrinkles between your brows, also called the “11’s,” can become more visible when you furrow your brows. A few Botox, Dysport, or Xeomin units will effectively treat those scowl lines.

Crow’s Feet

This treatment targets the fine lines that develop from smiling and squinting, often called crow’s feet. By relaxing these muscles, your eyes will appear more youthful and vibrant. Let us help you enhance those gorgeous eyes with a smooth, refreshed look.

Bunny Lines

Bunny lines are the wrinkles on your nose that appear when you scrunch your face. This treatment is ideal for those who notice these lines when they laugh or smile, offering a subtle enhancement that maintains your natural expressions while reducing the appearance of wrinkles.

Brow Lift

This treatment can lift drooping brows, creating a more open and alert look. It’s perfect for those who feel their brows make them look tired or aged. Ready, set, lift your brows to new heights with a tailored treatment plan.

Lip Lines/Lip Flip

A  lip flip can give you a naturally voluptuous appearance. It enhances the shape of your lips by slightly rolling them outward, creating the illusion of fuller lips without adding volume. This technique is perfect for those seeking a subtle enhancement.

Dimpled Chin

This approach will give you a smooth chin and a more refined look. This treatment is ideal for those who notice textural irregularities when they speak or smile, as it helps create a more uniform appearance, enhancing your overall facial aesthetics.


Slim your facial structure with a few Botox, Dysport, or Xeomin injections. This treatment can also alleviate issues related to teeth grinding and jaw clenching. The maximum effect can take two to three months, gradually slimming your jawline for a more contoured appearance.

Platysma (Vertical Neck Cords)

These lines can be erased with a few Botox, Dysport, or Xeomin injections, resulting in a smoother neck and a more youthful overall appearance. This treatment can significantly improve the contour and definition of your neck, enhancing your overall profile.


These injections block the nerve signals that cause sweating, preventing the glands from producing a massive amount of sweat. This treatment can be life-changing for those who struggle with excessive sweating, providing relief and confidence in both social and professional settings.

Final Thoughts

Wrinkle relaxers can be an effective way to lessen the appearance of wrinkles and achieve a more youthful look. Before your first appointment, ensure you understand how these treatments work, what to expect during and after this approach, and how to choose a qualified provider.
