    Wrinkle relaxers. Sounds great, don’t they? But what exactly are wrinkle relaxers? Why are they so popular? And what can they do for you?

    Wrinkle relaxers are another name for anti-wrinkle injections. Why do some people refer to them in this way? Well, because they soften wrinkles by relaxing your facial muscles. By relaxing the muscles that bunch the skin around your eyes and on your forehead, visible wrinkle improve, and the development of new one’s is slowed.

    How wrinkle relaxers work

    Wrinkle relaxers take advantage of the action of a naturally occurring protein compound produced by a bacteria. Purified and diluted to clinical levels, this protein is injected into muscles of expression that bunch the skin causing wrinkles. After injection, the protein enters the nerve and prevents them releasing signals to the facial muscles. This reduces muscle activity, preventing skin bunching. The result is an improvement in the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles in the treated areas.

    Wrinkle relaxers are used to treat lines in areas of facial movement, where reducing the movement wouldn’t impact vital actions like speaking or chewing. The most common areas we use wrinkle relaxers are on your forehead, brow, and around your eyes.
