As we age, wrinkles are inevitable. Wrinkles are lines and creases that form on your skin over time. Wrinkles have several causes, including age or exposure to sunlight. Sunlight is harmful to our skin, because of the UV rays. UV rays prematurely break down your skin’s connective tissue, resulting in lessened flexibility. Less elastic skin is more likely to develop wrinkles. There are wrinkle relaxers on the market that can smooth out these fine lines and wrinkles. Pure Youth Wellness & Aesthetics is experienced in the application of wrinkle relaxers. Our experienced healthcare professionals can advise on the best anti-aging solution for you.

What are Wrinkle Relaxers?

Wrinkle relaxers are best known as Botox or Dysport and consist of neurotoxins. These neurotoxins are injected using a fine needle into the tissues where wrinkles are present. As the muscles relax, the wrinkles will begin to soften and disappear. It may take up to 10 days to see the full effects of the treatment because it takes time for the muscles to soften fully.

Where Can Wrinkle Relaxers Be Applied?

Fine lines and wrinkles are most commonly found around the eyes and mouth. These are the ideal locations to use wrinkle relaxers. The healthcare professionals at Pure Youth Wellness & Aesthetics can advise you on a case-by-case basis on where to apply the wrinkle relaxers. We only perform treatments that we believe will benefit your specific case. Our wrinkle relaxers will work for a 3 – 4 month period before you need to come back for a touch-up.

Does the Application Hurt?

Slight swelling and bruising at the application site are normal and nothing to be concerned about. You may experience some stinging during the application process. Taking over-the-counter pain medicine before your wrinkle relaxer treatment can help mitigate the side effects. Pure Youth Wellness & Aesthetics recommends not laying down for 4 hours after the treatment, and not performing any strenuous exercise for 24 hours afterward.
