Did you know that your facial expressions can contribute to the formation of wrinkles? Your facial muscles must contract in order to smile, laugh, squint, frown, and express a myriad of emotions. Over time, these frequent muscle contractions can leave their mark on your appearance, resulting in the development of fine lines and wrinkles.
Fortunately, there are a variety of minimally invasive treatments that can temporarily reverse the signs of aging caused by facial muscle contractions. Dr. Rebecca Fitzgerald can comprehensively treat these wrinkles and frown lines with quick-acting injectables, commonly referred to as wrinkle relaxers.
The aging process impacts everyone differently and as a result, your skin rejuvenation treatment plan must be tailored to your unique individual needs. The best way to determine whether wrinkle relaxers will achieve your goals is to speak with Dr. Fitzgerald in person. Please call (323) 430-9800 today to schedule a consultation at our Los Angeles cosmetic dermatology office.
Wrinkle Relaxer Options
Dr. Fitzgerald offers three different types of wrinkle relaxers. While they all work in a similar manner, each has its own unique characteristics and strengths. Depending on the precise cause and location of your wrinkles, Dr. Fitzgerald may recommend:
BOTOX® Cosmetic was the first wrinkle relaxer approved by the FDA. While it has primarily been used to treat frown and worry lines, BOTOX® Cosmetic can also:
- Reshape a square jaw
- Lift mouth corners
- Raise and level droopy brows
- Drop an encroaching “witch’s chin”
- Smooth neck bands
Dysport is highly effective at relaxing frown lines as well; however, it also has some additional diffusing effect that works very well for removing fine crinkly lines such as crow’s feet.
Xeomin is the newest wrinkle relaxer approved by the FDA. It functions similarly to BOTOX® Cosmetic and Dysport, but it is referred to as “naked” since it does not contain a specific protein can potentially result in resistance to the other neuroproteins.
