Not all of us have the luxury of a European summer escape right now, and if you’re anything like us, opening up Instagram is like some form of torture during the months of June and July! At The White Room, we’re not afraid of a little mystery though, and what better way to create the illusion that you’ve been relaxing in Positano than with a little wrinkle relaxer?
When treated regularly, wrinkle relaxers are an effective way of creating a relaxed and refreshed appearance, smoothing out unwanted fine lines and wrinkles and preventing static lines from forming and becoming permanent.
Once associated with a “stiff" or “frozen” appearance, wrinkle relaxer injections now offer so much more than simply preventing muscles from moving. In fact, our approach to cosmetic injectables is very understated and conservative. We’re all about enhancing your natural beauty, not freezing it!
How do wrinkle relaxers work?
Wrinkle relaxers work by temporarily blocking the transmitting signal between the nerve and muscle cells, which in turn prevents the muscle from contracting. When the muscle can’t contract, the appearance of the existing wrinkle is reduced.
What areas of the body do wrinkle relaxers treat?
The most common areas that are treated with wrinkle relaxers are frown lines, forehead lines and crows feet. Wrinkle relaxers are also used to treat areas of the lower face and jawline, where the treatment can also be of therapeutic benefit in alleviating jaw clenching and the pain associated with this. We also see amazing results using wrinkle relaxers for jawline slimming (masseters) and to reduce excessive sweating in the armpits (hyperhidrosis).
How long do wrinkle relaxers last?
The effects of wrinkle relaxers can last up to 3-5 months, depending on the area treated and the dose administered.
