Wrinkle Reducers Q & A
What are Wrinkle Reducers?
Wrinkle Reducers are a popular brand of prescription injection made from Botulinum Toxin Type A. Wrinkle Reducers are used to temporarily smooth out mild to severe frown lines between your eyebrows without changing the look of the rest of your face. Botulinum Toxin Type A injectable treatments are the top minimally invasive cosmetic treatment performed in the United States. In fact, according to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, in 2016 seven million women and men received Botulinum Toxin Type A injections.
One of the key benefits of Wrinkle Reducers, besides losing those frown lines, is it leaves you with a soft, natural look, not a frozen, overdone look.
Who is a candidate for Wrinkle Reducers?
For the most part, Wrinkle Reducers are a good option for women and men under 65-years-old who want to get rid of frown lines – those annoying “elevens” – between their eyebrows. If you are allergic to cow’s milk protein or have had allergic reactions to any of the other botulinum toxin brands like Botox®, then Wrinkle Reducers may not be for you.
Dr. Hamm may not recommend Wrinkle Reducers if one side of your face looks vastly different than the other or if you have had surgical changes made to your face.
Other conditions that may exclude you as a candidate are:
- Deep facial scars
- Oily, thick skin
- Sagging eyelid folds
- Droopy eyelids
- Weak muscles in the injection area
- An infection or inflammation at the injection site
- Wrinkles that won’t smooth when you spread them apart
Dr. Hamm evaluates you during your consultation to develop the best treatment plan for your desired results.
How do Wrinkle Reducers work?
During a Wrinkle Reducers treatment, Dr. Hamm injects Wrinkle Reducers into five key points between and above your eyebrows. The treatment takes about 20 minutes and is performed as an in-office treatment at Strax Rejuvenation in Lauderhill, Florida. Wrinkle Reducers prevent the muscles in the area of the injection sites to contract, leaving you with a smooth, natural appearance while the rest of your face is unaffected so you don’t have to worry about that frozen look. Although you may see some results right away, the full effect of the treatment happens two to three days later and lasts for about four months.
