What is BOTOX and Wrinkle Relaxers?
Whenever you look at your reflection in a mirror, are you bothered by fine lines or wrinkles developing on your forehead and in the delicate skin around your eyes? Known as dynamic wrinkles, these skin issues appear as a result of repetitive facial movements, such as squinting, frowning, and smiling. Wrinkle relaxer injectables can temporarily diminish the formation of moderate to severe frown lines, horizontal forehead lines, and Crow's feet. Made from a purified strain of botulinum toxin type A, wrinkle relaxers work to block the facial muscles, allowing the skin to smooth itself on its own. At Imperial Dermatology, Dr. Simona Bartos is pleased to offer BOTOX, Dysport®, Jeuveau®, and XEOMIN® treatments to help Hollywood, FL patients achieve a younger-looking, renewed outcome.

Who is a Candidate For BOTOX And Wrinkle Relaxers?
Patients who prefer a minimally invasive option to smooth frown lines, Crow's feet, or forehead wrinkles may be ideal candidates for BOTOX and other wrinkle relaxers at Imperial Dermatology. These can also be a good option if you are experiencing prominent glabellar lines ("11" lines between the eyes) that lead to a worn-out or older appearance. BOTOX and wrinkle relaxer injections have gained popularity among younger individuals, too. Although patients ages 20 – 30 might not yet present with the signs of aging, BOTOX and wrinkle relaxers can be provided as a preventive treatment to get ahead of the natural process of aging by temporarily minimizing or delaying the development of facial lines. During your consultation, Dr. Bartos will examine you and listen to your concerns to ensure you're a great candidate for this rejuvenating aesthetic treatment.
What happens during BOTOX and wrinkle relaxer treatment?
During your consultation at Imperial Dermatology, Dr. Bartos will provide an aesthetic evaluation to select which areas need treatment. Given that BOTOX and other wrinkle relaxers are provided during a fast, in-office treatment, your injections can usually be carried out during the same appointment. The product will be placed into the problem areas of your forehead or upper face using a fine needle. Wrinkle relaxer injections take about 5 –10 minutes to complete, and most people notice only a quick, pinprick feeling. It's normal to see a bit of slight swelling, redness, and bruising in the injection sites. Over the next 48 – 72 hours, you should begin to notice smoother, firmer skin and a refreshed glow. You can generally expect your improvements to last up to four months.
How long does it take to recover from Wrinkle Relaxers?
Following your BOTOX or wrinkle relaxer injections, you may go about your daily routine; however, it's a good idea to avoid strenuous activities for at least a day. For the first several days, you should abstain from touching your face, as this may accidentally spread the injectable to other places. The injection areas may appear red, slightly sore, or sensitive to the touch, but these effects should subside within a few days. Based on the product we used, your outcomes may take a few days to be seen. Most people enjoy results that last as long as four months, but the specific length of your outcomes could differ slightly based on the formula and amount of relaxer used. Before you leave our office, we will give you detailed aftercare recommendations and talk about when to arrange further injections.
BOTOX and wrinkle relaxers FAQs
How safe is BOTOX?
When administered by a trained Double Board-Certified Dermatologist like Dr. Bartos, BOTOX rarely causes complications. Our practitioners use just enough of the product to address problem areas while leaving the surrounding muscles unaffected. BOTOX is FDA-approved for cosmetic use and is considered a safe and effective treatment.
Should I get another wrinkle relaxer?
Imperial Dermatology offers alternative wrinkle relaxer solutions like Dysport®, Jeuveau®, and XEOMIN® to reduce the appearance of fine lines. During your initial anti-aging assessment, our aesthetic team will assess your facial features and learn about your cosmetic goals. From there, we can make the appropriate recommendations.
What about BOTOX parties?
There's an ongoing trend where people get together to administer BOTOX doses themselves. BOTOX parties are very risky, and we do not encourage this practice at our office in Hollywood, FL. This is because too much or too little BOTOX, or BOTOX administered in the wrong areas, can cause unintended consequences such as an abnormal facial appearance.
