Restore Plastic Surgery offers BOTOX® Cosmetic and Dysport® for dynamic wrinkles. These wrinkles occur with facial expression, often forming between the eyes, at the corner of the eyes, across the forehead, and around the lips. Dynamic wrinkles are only visible when the face moves.

BOTOX and Dysport both work by interrupting the signal between nerve and muscle, allowing the muscle to relax completely. This does not paralyze the muscle, but reduces its tension sufficiently to allow the overlying skin to become smooth. A single treatment can produce results for up to four months.

Why Consider Wrinkle Relaxers

There are several reasons you might consider a wrinkle relaxer. These include:

  1. Treatment is fast and painless
  2. There is no recovery period or downtime required
  3. Treatment can eliminate lines and wrinkles throughout the face
  4. Results are noticeable but still natural-looking
  5. Maintenance is simple and can be scheduled in advance

BOTOX and Dysport are intended for the short-term improvement of crow’s feet, frown lines, forehead creases, marionette lines, pebbly chin, neck bands, and more. These treatments are ideal for temporary enhancement before a wedding, family gathering, or important social event. They are also helpful for general facial rejuvenation and can be maintained through routinely scheduled touch-ups every three to four months.

Other Non-Surgical Options

Wrinkle relaxers are not unique in their ability to soften fine lines and deep creases throughout the face. Additional non-surgical cosmetic treatment may also help you reach your goals.

We offer several minimally-invasive treatments that can be used alone or with wrinkle relaxers to improve facial appearance significantly. Popular options such as laser skin resurfacing and microneedling can remove sun and age spots, soften wrinkles, improve skin texture, and even address scars. Dermal fillers can add volume to sunken cheeks, temples, and eyes. And laser hair removal can assist in the permanent elimination of pesky hair. Which of these is optimal for your needs depends on the issues you are addressing and other factors specific to you. During your one-on-one consultation, we will assess your problem areas and discuss your options to help you choose the best solutions for your needs.
