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.

I had my Botox done about a week ago and it is perfect not a sag not a droop I can't make any frown lines in my forehead, I've gone to a few places around town where I never got any effects.

"I love the nurses at TSA, they are all very talented and knowledgeable about the injections, and they make it a priority to make you feel comfortable. I’ve had 3 different nurses do my injections within the few years I’ve been coming and those girls are on point! Ask for Jessica Tyler, Jessica Richards and/or Lindsay Richards. I send everyone I know to the TSA office for Botox and filler."- E.T. / Google / May 04, 2019

Kylie, Jessica S and Lindsay were all so patient and answered all of my questions before my procedure and put my mind at ease. They made the whole experience so easy.

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.
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.
