There are 3 brands of wrinkle relaxers available in Australia each with their own advantages and disadvantages.
At Wise Medical Laser we have all 3 brands available so you can choose your preferred brand. If you are new to wrinkle relaxers we will help to advise you on choice.
Wrinkle relaxers work by stopping the muscle contractions that result in wrinkles. They usually start working between 2 and 7 days with full effect after 2 weeks. They last for a period of between 2-5 months depending on the individual. They cannot alter the shape of the face or add volume to the face in the way that dermal fillers can. Wrinkle relaxers can be injected in different quantities to achieve your desired result. The aim is to give a natural outcome that does not look frozen or expressionless.
An appointment with Dr Wise is required before injectables can be administered. Wrinkle relaxers can be administered on the same day as your consultation and do not take long.
Side effects are minimal and you can usually go back to work or go out to lunch straight after your appointment. It is advisable to return for a follow-up appointment after 2 weeks so that results can be assessed and any top ups required can be given. Treatment effects can vary between individuals.
