Top Questions about Wrinkle Relaxers
What options do I have at Juvly for wrinkle relaxers?
At Juvly Aesthetics, we have many options for wrinkle relaxers! We carry Botox®, Dysport®, and the newest of the wrinkle relaxers, Jeuveau®. This gives you plenty of options as every client is different and can react better to one than the other!
How do wrinkle relaxers work?
Wrinkles appear due to repeated muscle movement, such as squinting and lifting the eyebrows. Over time, wrinkles can become more visible and even appear at rest (known as static wrinkles). Wrinkle relaxers are injected into commonly affected areas such as the forehead, frown lines, and crow’s feet to temporarily decrease muscle movement, thus preventing wrinkle formation.
What areas can I treat?
Wrinkle relaxers can be used in multiple areas to alleviate undesirable lines. We can even use wrinkle relaxers to help with excessive sweating for the underarms, hands, and feet. The most common areas of treatment are in the upper face, including the area between the brows, on the forehead and around the eyes.
How much time does the treatment take?
The injection process is quick and usually takes around 10 minutes. We recommend a consultation with one of our Master Providers to discuss your individual beauty goals.
How many injections are used in a typical treatment?
The number of injections needed depends on the area being treated. On average, each treatment area includes 3 – 5 injections to adequately cover the muscle and alleviate muscle contraction preventing wrinkle formation.
When will I see results?
You may begin to see results between 3 to 5 days, with the full treatment taking effect within 14 days.
How often should I get treatment?
We recommend a follow-up treatment every 3 to 4 months. Around this time, the effects of the wrinkle relaxer will begin to fade and you will notice those pesky lines forming with expression again.
Will treatment with wrinkle relaxers help my expression lines?
Yes! Wrinkle relaxers are great to help smooth lines formed with muscle movement (known as dynamic lines). Results will provide you a fresher, more youthful appearance.
Is treatment painful?
Wrinkle relaxers are injected under the skin with a fine needle. Some clients say the injection can feel like a mosquito bite. Topical numbing or icing the area prior to treatment can make it more comfortable.
Do I have any limitations after treatment?
Treatment can take between 10 to 20 minutes and you can resume your day as planned right after!
Am I a candidate for wrinkle relaxers?
If you desire a temporary solution to reduce lines on your face, wrinkle relaxers are a great option. Treatment is quick and can be done during your lunch break. There is minimal downtime and treatment lasts from 3 to 4 months. If you are pregnant or breastfeeding, we can treat you after this time.
Can I take advantage of the third party rewards program offered by the makers of these wrinkle relaxers?
Yes, of course! We encourage all clients to take part in these programs. The rewards program for Botox® is known as Brilliant Distinctions and Dysport® has Aspire Rewards. Both of these programs offer coupons for future use after treatment with one of their products. This is a great saving in addition to Juvly’s impressive, transparent prices and specials. Jeuveau® currently does not offer a rewards program.
