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.

"Rhinoplasty- 2-3 weeks post op, and it only gets better! - Please read - If you are considering Rhinoplasty period, and/or pursuing Dr. Toledo for the surgery.First off I want to start off with the reviews I've read, this may shock you but I can see why some individuals claim his demeanor may not be 100% to your liking. When I first met with him, I was a little put off by some of his comments, as well as feeling as if my hopes were too high. Immediately, I thought what a waste of my consultation, I am going to see someone else! Then I realized... that was just me being entitled, comparative to the service you may expect from a salesperson or restaurant.Dr. Toledo is no salesperson, he is a realist, and a world class surgeon. Look him up, he's been on the news countless times, been on many medical boards and been involved in this field for more than 3, going on 4 decades! Yes surgery is a science, but his craftsmanship is an Art. He perfects that art in every surgery he does, never intents to do a half job, to simply collect and go like most surgeons would!He literally turns down surgeries and makes sure this is something you want or need! He's worked in non-profit organizations and missions to help the less privileged all over the world!SO, if he comes off a little abrupt or isn't exactly sugar coating, please remind yourself that this is one of the top surgeons for what you are searching for! He gets a lot of people who are either not serious, or doing it for the wrong reasons and he is trying to help us all get a better quality and confidence in our day to day living.As for the results it's not exactly what I pictured, because it ended up being even better! I am so happy I moved forward with him and I am 2-3 weeks post op, and it only gets better!Ask yourself, do you want whipped cream with a cherry on top and a subpar nose? Or prefer a careful, attentive and safe surgery with realistic expectations? If so, choose Dr. Toledo, and leave your ego at the door, you're here for a reason!Thank you too Dr. Toledo & his Staff (Esther too!) The Anesthesia Doctor was also amazing, no complaints!"- J. / RealSelf / Dec 16, 2022

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.
