Don't let wrinkles define you!

Have you noticed wrinkles and fine lines becoming more pronounced? Are wrinkles and fine lines making you feel self-conscious and aged beyond your years? If so, you're not alone. Getting wrinkle relaxers in Bakersfield at Empire Aesthetic Center, like Botox, Dysport, and Daxxify, has helped countless patients regain their youthful confidence by smoothing out these troublesome signs of aging. And for younger patients with only minimal fine lines, these popular aesthetic injectables can help prevent the formation of full-blown wrinkles, allowing them to enjoy their youthful appearance for years.


Wrinkle relaxers are most often used on the wrinkle-causing muscles in the forehead, between the eyebrows, and around the eyes. Also called neuromodulators, Botox, Dysport, and Daxxify use a safe, purified protein called botulinum toxin type A to temporarily block the nerve signals to these muscles. This allows movement-related wrinkles and fine lines to smooth out, so you can enjoy a refreshed and rejuvenated appearance.

What are the benefits of wrinkle relaxers?

Natural-Looking Wrinkle Reduction

By precisely targeting just the muscles that need to be relaxed, our expert aesthetic injectors can help you achieve rejuvenating wrinkle reduction without affecting your natural range of facial expressions.

Quick and Convenient

Wrinkle relaxer treatments are quick, minimally invasive, and convenient. They usually take only 10-15 minutes to complete, and no downtime is required so you can resume your daily activities immediately after the treatment.

Fast-Acting and Long-Lasting

Depending on the individual, dosage, and the type of wrinkle relaxer,  improvement in the appearance of wrinkles may begin to show in as few as  2-3 days and results can last anywhere from 3-6 months or more for some.

Proven Safe and Effective

Wrinkle relaxers have been used for cosmetic purposes for over 20 years and have a proven track record of safety and effectiveness. The risk of serious side effects is low, and most people experience only mild, temporary side effects such as redness or swelling at the injection site.

How does a wrinkle relaxer procedure work?

Before beginning your treatment, our aesthetic provider will discuss your goals and examine your areas of concern to determine which wrinkle relaxer is best suited for you.

 

Following the consultation, the treatment area will be cleansed and prepared for the injections. Our skilled and gentle injectors will then use a very fine needle to inject precise amounts of wrinkle relaxers into the targeted muscles. This process is quick and relatively painless. A small buzzer is used to distract from any discomfort you might feel.

 

There is no downtime after a wrinkle relaxer treatment, and you will be able to get back to your day right away. Some mild discomfort or swelling at the injection site is common, but this typically subsides within a few hours.

 

The effects of a wrinkle relaxer treatment usually begin to appear within a few days and can last between 3 to 6 months, depending on the individual and the specific product used. To maintain the desired results, patients will need to receive periodic touch-up injections.

What are the differences between Botox, Dysport, and Daxxify?

Botox, Dysport, and Daxxify have all been shown to be safe and effective for reducing the appearance of wrinkles, and each has its own unique benefits. Our expert injectors have the expertise and experience to help determine which one will be right for you.

Botox

  • Botox is the most well-known and widely used injectable treatment for reducing the appearance of wrinkles.
  • It has a proven safety record and has been used for cosmetic purposes for many years.
  • Botox can be used to treat a variety of wrinkles, including frown lines, crow’s feet, and forehead lines.
  • Patients generally start to see results within 1 week, and are able to appreciate the full effect within 2 weeks after the treatment.
  • Wrinkle reduction with Botox last 3-4 months, and patients are able to get maintenance treatments every 90 days.
Dysport

Dysport

  • Since becoming FDA-approved in 2009, Dysport has quickly gained popularity among patients and providers alike.
  • Dysport tends to have a faster onset of wrinkle smoothing than Botox, with most patients seeing results within 2-3 days and full improvement within 2 weeks.
  • Because it is thinner than Botox, Dysport tends to disperse more smoothly and evenly, making it especially great for larger areas such as the forehead.
  • Like Botox, Dysport can be used to treat a variety of wrinkles and has been shown to be effective for up to 4 months, with maintenance treatments recommended every 90 days.
  • Dysport may be a good option for patients who have developed resistance to Botox or who have not achieved the desired results with Botox.

Daxxify

  • While Daxxify is the newest wrinkle relaxer to receive FDA approval, its safety and efficacy have been well-established through the largest Phase 3 clinical trial ever conducted for glabellar lines.
  • Some patients have reported seeing improvement in as little as 24 hours, though full results take around 3 weeks to appear.
  • Thanks to its unique peptide-powered formulation, Daxxify lasts 6 months for most, and up to 9 months for some, meaning fewer treatments are needed to enjoy wrinkle reduction.
  • Daxxify may be a good option for patients who have not achieved the desired results with Botox or Dysport.
