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
"I have spent the last several years wanting to fix my nose but wasn't sure what I needed done exactly / was scared of the process. I decided to just get a consultation to see what my options were. Doctor Toledo's office made the process extremely easy from day one. They had flexibility in their appointments and did not make me wait at all. Doctor Toledo was able to pinpoint exactly what I needed done to my nose. It was nothing major, but it really made an impact on my breathing and physical appearance. I dedicated shortly after the consultation to go through with what he recommended. After that, his staff did everything to make it a smooth process for me. Ester at the front office sat down with me and went over everything I should expect and made sure I didn't leave the office with any questions. They did give me a ton of pre-op instructions but they were all easy and simple to follow. These instructions are a reason my surgery and healing process went so smoothly. On the day of the surgery I was greeted once again with several friendly staff members. They calmed my nerves by getting my excited about this change and I don't even remember falling asleep in the OR. The healing process was also painless. I was up and working the next business day and had no pain at all. The results of the surgery exceeded all of my expectations. I hardly had any swelling just one week after the surgery and the physical appearance was exactly what I wanted. I am also now able to breath better than I did before. If you are a person who is considering a nose job, I wouldn't even think of going to anyone else besides Doctor Toledo. You will be treated with the highest level of care and I promise- your results will be amazing! I am thankful for everyone in that office who made this a truly amazing experience."- MC / Other / Apr 28, 2021
"Truly Life-Changing -Best Decision I Ever Made!! I went in for a Septo-Rhinoplasty almost two months ago and am thrilled with my results! I'm almost thirty and had struggled with insecurity over my crooked nose since I was a child. It may seem a bit melo-dramatic but I always felt like my nose held me back from so much in life. I would hold back from wearing certain hairstyles because they'd make my nose stand out more and absolutely hated wearing my hair back in a bun or ponytail unless I was working out. It was hard for me to make eye contact with people because I felt like all they could see when they looked at me was my nose. Of course this isn't true, but it was hard to convince my mind otherwise when I believed that my nose was ugly. Silly as it may sound, I just wanted my nose to stop controlling my life! I wanted to be able to smile and not worry about how my nostrils flared out. I wanted to get dressed up for a fun night out and actually FEEL pretty rather than constantly carrying around the burden of self-consciousness. When I found Dr. Toledo, I was impressed by all the excellent reviews he had and how natural his work turned out. He is truly a kind and caring man who wants to change people's lives. His staff is equally caring and professional and I felt at ease throughout the whole process. Something very important to me as well was that he asked ME how I wanted my nose to look and worked with me to develop a realistic outcome based on my facial structure vs. telling me what HE wanted to do to my face. He is definitely an artist who values the desires and opinions of his patients. Two months post-op, I finally just feel free. I have a nice, smooth little sloped nose now and I absolutely love it! My confidence in interacting with people has soared and I can finally just go about my life normally as opposed to be constantly being preoccupied with my looks. I say this as someone who is NOT a superficial person. Having this procedure done was never about perfection and completely changing the way I looked. Rather, it was about altering one feature that brought a crippling amount of insecurity so that I could have a weight lifted off my shoulders. Trust me, my body has many imperfections including pointy ears and a crooked smile. But those are all imperfections I can deal with and even embrace as making me uniquely me. My nose was the one imperfection I could not embrace and I feel so relieved to finally just be fully confident and happy. Thank you to Dr. Toledo, Esther, and your amazing staff for changing my life!"- K.L. / Other / Mar 28, 2021
"I saw Dr. Toledo at least 10 years ago and knew that if I ever decided to have a neck lift, he would be the one I would choose to go to, even though we haven’t lived in the Dallas area for many years. Dr. Toledo and his staff are very professional and caring, and he is definitely someone you can trust working on your neck and face. Today I am 4 weeks post-op and am beyond thrilled with my results. I have no regrets whatsoever and would highly recommend Dr. Toledo to anyone seeking a cosmetic procedure."- D.S. / Google / Feb 23, 2021
"Dr. Toledo and his staff are extremely professional and welcoming. We cannot be more pleased with our experience and the outcome of the rhinoplasty done on my daughter just a month ago. Dr. Toledo delivered what he promised and my daughter is extremely pleased with her new look. The process and experience was exactly as Dr. Toledo and his staff explained to us during our pre-op appointment. They were very detailed about the whole process including the surgery itself, after surgery do’s & don’t and the healing process. We would like to express our gratitude & appreciation for Dr. Toledo’s professional expertise and his ability to make us feel at ease during the whole experience. We'll definitely recommend Dr. Toledo and his staff to our friends and family."- A.S. / Google / Feb 18, 2021
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.
