What are wrinkle relaxers?

As we age, our skin loses the ability to ‘bounce back’ from facial expressions, meaning expression lines such as frown lines, forehead lines and crows’ feet become more obvious. These lines and wrinkles can be significantly improved by treatment that weakens the activity of the small  muscles in these areas. This is the most commonly performed cosmetic procedure in the world – quick, safe and effective. And in our clinic they are becoming increasingly popular with men, who are usually looking for a softer and more natural result so that others can’t tell they have been treated.

What does the treatment involve?

Wrinkle treatments are very easy. After discussing your concerns and agreeing on a treatment plan, the area is gently cleaned. Then a series of tiny injections are placed in the area where lines occur. This is quick and fairly painless. The effects take a few days to reach maximum, and will usually last 3 – 4 months although this can be longer or shorter depending on the individual response and dosage used. If treatment is stopped, the muscles actions always return to normal.

Will others know I've had wrinkle relaxers?

No. At Skin Resus, our Doctors and Nurses specialise in subtle treatments which reduce lines while still allowing some movement. As we say about all cosmetic injections, “the ones you notice are the bad jobs”.

What is the cost of treatment?

The price for treatment depends on the area treated. In our Perth clinic we charge per area, not per unit. And if you need a touch up in a couple of weeks it is done at no charge. Typical costs vary from $195 – $495

Is this treatment right for me?

Ask yourself:

  1. Are the lines most obvious when you make the expression, eg frowning, smiling or raising your eyebrows? In this case we can offer a safe and effective solution. Call and talk to our team to find out more.
  2. Are there still lines there when your face is resting? In this case, extra treatment will often be needed in addition. To treat these lines, we would use an additional treatment. A combination is often advised, with the one part used to plump the deeper lines and the other to prevent new and active lines.
  3. Still not sure? To get the best advice on the right treatment for you, come in for a free consultation with one of our Registered Nurses.
