What are Wrinkle Relaxers?
Wrinkle Relaxers (also called anti-wrinkle injections) are treatments that relax the wrinkles and fine lines on the face that form as a result of reduced levels of collagen in the skin or increased skin laxity, which are common for mature skin.
How do wrinkle relaxers work?
Anti-Wrinkle injections improve the elasticity and firmness of the facial skin. Treatments are minimally-invasive that entail injections of special serums into the skin. Most of these treatments are formulated with neurotoxins, which are absorbed by the nerves in the face and block the transmission of muscle-moving transmitters. You can think of neurotransmitters as a selective numbing of facial nerves, which ultimately prevent certain muscles from contracting and worsening the formation of wrinkles. Neurotransmitters effortlessly smooth out the appearance of the skin.
