Wrinkle Relaxers are a purified protein that when injected into a muscle in the correct dose prevents muscle contraction. When used in cosmetic treatments, we use very small doses to relax the muscles causing fine lines and wrinkles. The results give a smoother fresher appearance to the face. For example, if you can’t frown, you’re not going to create that deep line between the brows.
They last around 3-4 months but this does depend on the dose and the individual.
Many clinical trials and studies have been performed on wrinkle relaxers and we see very few side effects in clinic. They can do so much more than just relaxing wrinkles, it can be used in the treatment of chronic migraines, teeth grinding and even stop excessive sweating!
How Much Does It Cost and how Much Do I Need?
These are two very common questions.
Due to strict advertising guidelines, I am not at liberty to mention the brands that I inject but they are very often referred as ‘Type B’ and ‘Type D’
- Wrinkle relaxer Type B costs $11.50 per unit
- Wrinkle relaxer Type D costs $4.50 per unit.
It’s hard to give a quote without seeing you first as everyone’s muscles and facial anatomy is different. If you need a quote and cannot come in for a consult first, get in contact with me and we can discuss it.

Wrinkle Relaxer Aftercare
To get optimal results from your wrinkle relaxer treatment, here are some aftercare instructions. It is important to follow these to avoid adverse side effects.
- Do not lie flat for 4 hours after your treatment
- Do not rub the area treated for 4 hours after injections (the product is placed just under the skin and takes 4 hours to disperse into the muscle- so leave it alone and let it do its thing)
- Avoid and facial massage/treatments for two weeks
- Avoid excessive alcohol and exercise for 24 hours
