What Are Wrinkle Relaxers?
At Tulsa Surgical Arts, reducing the signs of aging is easy and safe with BOTOX®, Jeuveau™, and XEOMIN® injections. These facial rejuvenation treatments help both women and men achieve the youthful-looking complexions they desire. Each product uses a form of botulinum toxin, which temporarily "freezes" the movements of the muscles that create expressions in the forehead and eye region. The creases made from facial expressions are called "dynamic." After a certain age, your dynamic lines remain visible, even when the face is fully relaxed. Wrinkle relaxer injections can significantly reduce the depth of these lines by limiting muscle movements and allowing the tissue to smooth itself. Dr. Angelo Cuzalina will discuss all of your options and how each treatment may benefit you.

What are the Benefits of Wrinkle Relaxers?
Plastic surgery is not necessarily the first choice for everyone when it comes to facial rejuvenation. Wrinkle relaxers can offer many patients a convenient, nonsurgical alternative with fewer side effects and less recovery time. Injections are also much more affordable than going under the knife. Tulsa Surgical Arts can create custom treatment plans that may combine wrinkle relaxers with other nonsurgical cosmetic treatments like dermal fillers for more comprehensive outcomes.
Are Wrinkle Relaxers For You?
BOTOX, Jeuveau, and XEOMIN injections work well for patients who want to soften the appearance of wrinkles and creases on their upper face without undergoing surgery. In some cases, wrinkle relaxers, like BOTOX, are used as a preventive, anti-aging treatment. Dr. Cuzalina will discuss the benefits of each product and determine which one works best for you. If you experience deeper lines, a dermal filler could be a better option. Also, for older patients who experience moderate to severe skin laxity, a facelift might provide better results. During your consultation, we will discuss all of the treatment options available to you and design a unique treatment plan.
Our Injection Technique
We provide wrinkle relaxer treatments as an outpatient procedure. Right after your initial consultation with Dr. Cuzalina, we can normally perform the treatment. No matter the type of product, we will ask you to make various facial expressions using the upper face. This helps us place the injections in the appropriate spot. First, we clean your skin, mark the injection sites, and administer your treatment. To minimize discomfort and bruising, we apply a cold compress right after the injections. If needed, you can request a numbing cream to make the procedure more comfortable. However, patients usually do not need it. Depending on the formula type, your treatment could last about 10 – 15 minutes, and you can return to your normal routine.
What to Expect
After the procedure, you can resume your daily routine; however, you should avoid strenuous activities for at least 24 hours. For the first few days, you will need to sleep upright and avoid touching your face. Touching your face may accidentally spread the treatment to other regions. The treatment areas may appear red, swollen, or bruised, but your symptoms should subside in a couple of days. Depending on the product we used, your results could take a few days to finalize. Additionally, how long your results last depends on the type of wrinkle relaxer. Before you leave, we will provide detailed aftercare instructions and discuss when to schedule follow-up appointments.
Wrinkle Relaxers FAQs
How many wrinkle relaxer units/injections will I need?
The quantity of wrinkle relaxer injections given will differ according to individual concerns and the extent of your facial wrinkles and lines. Dr. Angelo Cuzalina can recommend the appropriate number of injections based on your targeted cosmetic desires and whether you want to treat Crow's feet, the forehead, or between the eyes. To prolong your aesthetic outcomes, our team may suggest getting treatments every 3 – 4 months at Tula Surgical Arts.
Can I have a wrinkle relaxer treatment with other aesthetic services?
Wrinkle relaxer treatments typically pair well with additional cosmetic solutions at Tulsa Surgical Arts for men and women who would like to reduce aging concerns. If you notice deeper and more severe wrinkles and lines, our professionals could talk with you about adding a filler to help you achieve maximum results. To further enhance a youthful, radiant glow, our team might provide additional complementary procedures, like chemical peels.
Is there a variation among wrinkle reducers and fillers?
Even though wrinkle relaxers, like BOTOX, are administered to decrease facial creases by temporarily preventing your muscle contractions, dermal fillers are a distinct category of aesthetic injections that add volume to the face. Dermal fillers are designed to volumize sunken areas and fill in static wrinkles. Our team can determine whether you would benefit from a dermal filler to complement your wrinkle relaxer outcomes.
Are wrinkle relaxer treatments painful?
As is the case with the majority of injectable treatments, individuals will notice a mild pinprick sensation as the treatment is delivered. Note that this feeling just lasts a few seconds, so most patients say that this quick discomfort is quite bearable. Our professionals will help ensure you stay comfortable throughout the course of your treatment. If you like, we can provide an anesthetic agent to make your procedure more enjoyable.
Is there a difference between dermal fillers and wrinkle relaxers?
Both wrinkle relaxers and dermal fillers help revitalize your face, but they both function differently. Wrinkle relaxers, like BOTOX, temporarily "freeze" the muscles in your face to address shallow lines and wrinkles. Dermal fillers, meanwhile, add fullness to recessed parts of the face and fill in deep creases. Our team will be able to speak further about the advantages of dermal fillers and wrinkle relaxers during your appointment at our Tulsa, OK office.
What areas of my face can be treated with wrinkle relaxers?
Wrinkle relaxers can improve signs of aging throughout your face by smoothing fine and static lines. Wrinkle relaxers can be used on mild to moderate marionette, parentheses, and fine lines near your nose and mouth. Additionally, they can add volume to your lips.
Just Express Yourself
With BOTOX, Jeuveau, and XEOMIN, you can frown, smile, laugh, and make any expression you want without causing lines, thanks to wrinkle relaxer treatments. To prevent and smooth lines on the face, we invite you to schedule a consultative appointment with Dr. Cuzalina in Tulsa, OK to learn more about these amazing nonsurgical wrinkle relaxers. We will provide a treatment plan and discuss the costs at the time of your consultation.
