What are wrinkle relaxers?

Wrinkle relaxers are a type of injectable treatment that uses a neurotoxin made of a formulation of botulinum toxin that temporarily paralyzes the muscles that cause wrinkles. By relaxing these muscles, wrinkles and fine lines are reduced, giving the skin a smoother, more youthful appearance. Wrinkle relaxers are commonly used to treat lines between the eyebrows, on the forehead, and around the eyes. They are a safe and effective non-surgical option for those looking to reduce signs of aging.

The magic of wrinkle relaxers: how they work

The use of BOTOX®, Dysport®, or Xeomin® – therapeutic muscle-relaxing agents – is a popular and safe non-surgical cosmetic procedure used to reduce or eliminate facial wrinkles caused by muscle contractions. The goal of the injection is not to keep patients from expressing themselves but simply to lessen the impact of facial grimaces and frowns etched into the skin as wrinkles and lines. BOTOX®, Dysport®, and Xeomin® do not paralyze facial muscles, although, with extreme amounts, they may.

When administered in the correct dose by Dr. Gharai, wrinkle relaxers result in limited or relaxed muscle contractions resulting in minimized frown lines, wrinkles, crow's feet, neckbands, and more. When the procedure is performed correctly by a qualified medical professional, most people, other than trained cosmetic surgeons, will not notice that it has been done. Dr. Gharai is trained in the most advanced injection techniques to ensure natural-looking results that preserve your ability to make facial expressions.

Age gracefully with personalized injections.


BOTOX® is made from a purified form of botulinum toxin. It works by temporarily blocking the nerve signals that cause muscles to contract, which in turn reduces the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. BOTOX® is most commonly administered to soften creases in the eye and brow areas, but it can also be used to treat other areas of the face and neck.


Dysport® is a wrinkle relaxer that is similar to BOTOX® but with some key differences. It is made from a different strain of botulinum toxin, which allows it to spread more easily and provide a more natural-looking result. Dysport® is most commonly used to treat wrinkles on the forehead, between the eyebrows, and around the eyes. 


DAXXIFY™ is an FDA-approved injectable neurotoxin designed to treat glabellar lines, commonly known as frown lines between the eyebrows or "11s". What sets DAXXIFY apart from other similar treatments is its unique formulation. Unlike its competitors, DAXXIFY's toxin is attached to a protein, which helps extend its effects on the treated muscles. This results in a longer-lasting reduction of frown lines, giving patients a more youthful and refreshed appearance.

How often should I get BOTOX®, Dysport®, or DAXXIFY™ injections?

Patients will usually require re-injections after 3 to 4 months, depending on the size and strength of a patient’s facial muscles.

Are the injections painful?

Wrinkle relaxer injections are usually not painful, as the needles are very small, and the treatment is quick. Some patients may experience mild discomfort or a slight pinching sensation during the injections, but this is typically well-tolerated. Sometimes, a topical numbing cream may be applied to the treatment area before the injections to minimize discomfort.
