Wrinkle Relaxers To Help Keep Skin Youthful: Botox, Dysport and Xeomin

Wrinkle Relaxers To Help Keep Your Skin Youthful

 

If you’re reading this you are likely interested in aging gracefully and feeling good as the years march on.

 

RejuveCare Clinics in Missoula, Polson, Kalispell and Helena have the personnel, knowledge, experience, and passion to help you do exactly that.  Our Nurse Practitioners, Registered Nurses, Estheticians and office staff are an elite group of health care providers who are bar none the best team in the state.

 

Today I’m going to write about one of the most commonly requested treatments at RejuveCare Clinic:  wrinkle relaxers.  There is a lot more to talk about in the practice, but this seems to be a popular subject for anyone with crows’ feet sneaking up around their eyes or creases they’ve never noticed folding on their foreheads.

 

There are three medications used as wrinkle relaxers:  Botox, Dysport and Xeomin.  Although slightly molecularly different, these three medications block muscle movement and decrease wrinkles between the eyebrows, on the forehead, and at the outer aspects of the eyes. All three medications are administered as multiple tiny injections.

 

There is minimal discomfort at the time of the injections, and rarely any residual swelling or bruising. The procedure will take less than 15 minutes and you will leave the clinic looking as if nothing happened.  We can touch up your make-up if needed.  Allergic reactions are very uncommon.  Dysport and Xeomin have a rapid onset of three to five days, while Botox takes five to ten days to kick in.  All three wrinkle relaxers have a duration of three to five months.

 

Wrinkle relaxers have become very popular in the 20-30 year old age group as a PREVENTATIVE measure to keep lines and wrinkles at bay before they even start.

 

“Static lines” are wrinkles that remain even when the face is in a relaxed state. These are caused by years of repetitive movement of a facial muscle and are usually found between the eyebrows.  These etched lines can be treated with wrinkle relaxers, however our providers may offer additional options for flattening out those stubborn areas.

 

RejuveCare Clinic has been treating wrinkles for 7+ years.  We continue to offer a comprehensive menu of services, including – but not limited to:

laser hair removal, laser tattoo removal, laser skin rejuvenation, women’s health services including hormone replacement therapy, vaginal rejuvenation, IV vitamin therapy, Vitamin B12 injections, teeth whitening and medically managed weight loss including the Ideal Protein Weight Loss System.

 

Appointments at any of our locations can be made by calling 406.203.5174.

 

The nurses, nurse practitioners, estheticians and office staff at RejuveCare Clinic work to empower women to be more confident, brave, and sure of themselves.  Aging can be hard, and it is especially hard on women as their children leave home, their self worth and confidence may diminish.   Our ambition is to provide all women with affordable care and treatments that help them to feel confident and beautiful.

 

While our focus has been on women, the same tenet can be applied to men.  They are shy about treating the symptoms of aging.  At RejuveCare Clinic, we provide an environment men will feel comfortable as well.

 

I’ll be writing about that soon.
