About Wrinkle Relaxers
To help turn back the hands of time and to prevent lines and wrinkles from forming on the upper section of the face, Highland Park Plastic Surgery Center in Dallas, TX is proud to offer BOTOX, Dysport, and Xeomin injectable wrinkle relaxers to local men and women. This nonsurgical procedure provides gorgeous results and is extremely popular among both men and women. Wrinkle relaxers can make a big enhancement to dynamic lines and wrinkles, which are created by making expressions with the muscles contracting on the upper face. The dynamic lines disappear as the face relaxes, but static lines can still exist. BOTOX, Dysport, and Xeomin temporarily block the movements of the muscle to correct these static lines. Wrinkle relaxers are most commonly placed by board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. George A. Toledo between the brows, on the Crow's feet, and along the forehead.
"So impressed with Dr. Toledo's rhinoplasty results! And even more impressed with how much my breathing has improved! I didn't even realize how blocked my breathing was until now, it really is life changing. Beautiful results. And a perfect little nose!"- J.D. / Yelp / Mar 24, 2019
"What an amazing doctor. Dr. Toledo was very honest about the results I would get with the procedures he suggested. I was a sun lover in my teens and young adult age, so my skin was not in the best condition. Dr Toledo suggested the partial facelift with lip augmentation and laser. The results are more than I expected I’m very excited about the results. I would definitely recommend Dr. Toledo, he is the best."- C.B. / Google / Jan 10, 2020

"Dr. Toledo did my rhinoplasty and it came out better than I could have imagined. As soon as a he saw my nose, he knew exactly what needed to be done. He got rid of my hump and straightened my nose that was badly deviated. I believe Dr. Toledo will do a job that's realistic and something both him and a person with realistic expectations will be more than proud of. Again, I think my nose is perfect and I'm so glad I went to him!"- S.P. / Google / Dec 11, 2019
Wrinkle relaxers are ideal for individuals who want to smooth the appearance of static lines and prevent dynamic lines on their face nonsurgically. Often, they are used as a preventive treatment even if you are younger — keep in mind how often you tend to make facial expressions. They are a great nonsurgical approach if you have forehead lines or noticeable furrows between the brows. They are also a solution for lines that form around the eyes. If you have deeper lines, an injectable filler may be recommended. Furthermore, if you are older with severe wrinkles, you may opt for a facelift. This offers a more dramatic result, and it is more long-term. Highland Park Plastic Surgery Center offers facelifts, brow lifts, and eyelid surgeries as great options.
Wrinkle relaxer injections are done as an outpatient procedure directly at Highland Park Plastic Surgery Center. If it is your first time to visit us in Dallas, TX for wrinkle relaxers, we usually perform the injection during the same appointment as your consultation with Dr. Toledo. You will be asked to make a number of facial expressions using the upper face, such as squinting, frowning, etc., which will allow us to see where the injections need to be placed. The skin will be cleansed and the relaxer will be injected through a fine needle. You can request a numbing cream to make the procedure more comfortable, but it generally is not necessary. The injections typically take about 10 – 15 minutes, and you can return to your normal activities almost immediately.
What to Expect
After the injection, you can resume your normal activities, but strenuous exercise should be avoided for at least 24 hours. You will be asked to not rub the treated area for a few hours, so the protein binds more effectively to the nerve endings and not spread to adjacent muscles. The treated areas of the face may be slightly red, swollen, or bruised for a few days, but you will not experience any serious or lasting side effects. Overall, the treatment requires no downtime and the patient can resume a normal routine the same day. It takes about 2-3 days for the results to become completely noticeable and the results typically last 3 – 4 months. You should speak to Dr. Toledo about how often to schedule touch-up appointments at Highland Park Plastic Surgery Center to maintain your results.
Frequently Asked Questions
How much does an injectable wrinkle relaxer treatment cost?
Your cost for a wrinkle relaxer treatment will depend on how much product is used. This will vary based on your needs and goals. During your consultation, Dr. Toledo will create your personal treatment plan before he can estimate your costs. Wrinkle relaxers can produce amazing results when performed by a skilled plastic surgeon, like Dr. Toledo, but it can also be unsafe if done by someone without training, which is why it is better to avoid places offering cheap or knock-off injections. Highland Park Plastic Surgery Center often offers treatment specials on wrinkle relaxers, so be sure to ask during your consultation.
How long will my results last?
The results from a wrinkle relaxer treatment can last up to four months, but this may vary between patients. Most patients schedule an appointment every season to refresh their results, but you may want to come back sooner. If you are getting treatments while you are younger as a preventive treatment, you may be able to schedule appointments further apart. After listening to your goals and creating your treatment plan, Dr. Toledo will be better able to estimate when you should schedule your next appointment.
What is the difference between wrinkle relaxers and fillers?
Wrinkle relaxers and wrinkle fillers (like Juvéderm and Restylane) are both popular cosmetic treatments that decrease wrinkles and smooth fine lines. Wrinkle relaxers relax overused facial muscles that cause dynamic wrinkles, like frown lines (between the eyebrows), Crow's feet (in the outer corner's of the eyes), forehead wrinkles, and smile lines. Wrinkle fillers add volume under the skin to correct hollow areas and decrease the appearance of wrinkles on the surface. Depending on your goals, Dr. Toledo may recommend wrinkle relaxers, injectable fillers, or a combination of both.
Are wrinkle relaxers safe?
When administered properly, wrinkle relaxers rarely cause any complications. With that said, it is still very important to find someone who has experience in handling this medication, like Dr. Toledo. Too much of the product can cause an undesirable outcome. A skilled plastic surgeon will use just enough of the medication to effectively freeze the facial muscles that cause wrinkles while leaving nearby muscles unaffected.
