Wrinkle Reducers

Botox, Dysport, Xeomin and Jeuveau are wrinkle-reducers. They are one of our most popular procedures to target the dynamic wrinkles that occur from facial expressions (frown lines, forehead lines, crow’s feet).

Wrinkle Reducers, including Botox, Dysport, Xeomin, and Jeuveau, are extremely effective at diminishing the intensity of facial expressions and the wrinkles that occur from those expressions. Our expert physicians can fine tune the effect so that facial movements are softened a little or a lot.  It's your preference. 

 

In the upper face, wrinkle relaxers soften, and sometimes erase, horizontal forehead lines, frown lines between the brows (the "11's"), and crow's feet. In the midface, they can soften bunny lines; in the lower face, they help with the wrinkles that form around the mouth.

 

These wrinkle reducers are powerhouses.  In addition, to reducing wrinkles and the harshness of certain negative expressions (eg frowny, angry face), we also use them to shape the eyebrows, lips, and face.  We love how they lift or arch the brows, create a subtle "lip flip," slim the lower face, and enhance the jawline.  

As with all aesthetic procedures, the most critical part is coming up with the right plan for the right patient. Our expert physicians customize every wrinkle-reducer treatment by observing your face at rest and with movement. By analyzing which facial expressions you use most often, they can soften your expressions and also prevent the wrinkles that ultimately form from such movement. After observing your natural expressions, they will create a plan that gives you the most benefit from this treatment. 
 
After taking photographs, we cleanse your skin, and we can begin your treatment. The wrinkle relaxer is injected directly into the muscles using a tiny needle.  Afterwards, you may have some small bumps on your skin. These will resolve within 15-30 minutes. 

Wrinkle reducers go well with all other aesthetic procedures. As the face ages, we get better results when we combine wrinkle reducers with structural support, volume restoration, skin tightening, and improving the surface of the skin.  

There are no other treatments that reduce wrinkles by weakening the muscles. However, we can achieve a similar, more subtle effect by using filler to diminish the ability of the muscle to contract.  This effect of carefully-placed filler is called "myomodulation." 
 
We can also increase the skin's ability to resist deformation from the muscle's contraction by strengthening the skin through energy-based treatments. Energy-based treatments use controlled heat to injure the skin, and the skin (what an amazing organ!) responds by repairing itself and creating new collagen.  

PROS

CONS

  • Quick
  • Easy
  • Effective
  • No downtime
  • Maintenance required - Lasts 3-6 months and needs to be repeated
  • If you don't like the result, you have to wait for it to wear away (see above)

Risks will depend upon the area being injected. For example, treatment of horizontal forehead lines can result in dropping of the brows or an accentuation of the wrinkle right above the eyebrow. Our expert physician-injectors will counsel you about the risks, based on the specific areas where you may be treated.  

On the phone, prior to your consultation, we will spend some time learning more about your health history, your previous aesthetic experiences, and your goals.
 
During your consultation, your Patient Experience Coordinator and Dr. Cho or Dr. Chiang will discuss your concerns in more depth. The doctor will assess your face and neck and suggest treatment options that would be most impactful for you. Many times, a multi-modal approach (see complementary procedures) will be presented as we like to share how we can achieve the best results. 

 

After discussing your options, your Patient Experience Coordinator will review quotes and coordinate with you the next steps.
