Wrinkle relaxants (botulinum toxin) are natural protein that relaxes muscles. This type of injectable is usually used to treat wrinkles caused by increased muscle tension. The relaxation of the muscle causes the skin to become a little smoother and tighter, which also softens the wrinkles. The effect of wrinkle relaxers is temporary in nature and lasts approximately between three to five months. Wrinkle relaxants are also used against excessive perspiration; this is because it blocks the functioning of the sweat glands.
The treatment areas for wrinkle relaxants are frown lines, forehead lines, crow’s feet, lines next to the nose, gum smile, lines around the mouth, dimples in the chin, chewing muscles (teeth grinding), platysma bands. Treat areas for excessive sweating are armpits, palms of hands, and soles of feet.
