Wrinkle Relaxing Injections in Vancouver, BC

We can be “fine” with a fine line or two, and some wrinkles can show our wisdom and character, but when these creep in thick and fast, it can be a bit overwhelming. Whether it’s about subtly easing back these signs of aging, or preventing them before they become more static, wrinkle relaxing injections are the answer. Also referred to as neuromodulator injections, they can be used in a variety of different ways and in many areas of the face for a refreshed and rejuvenated appearance.

Frequently Asked Questions

Who is a candidate for wrinkle relaxing injections?

Patients wanting neuromodulator injections are often looking to smooth out wrinkles or stop them from forming in the first place. You could argue that everyone is a candidate for neuromodulator injections, not just those with wrinkles as it can also be used as a preventative treatment. Neuromodulator injections can also be utilized for conditions such as tension headaches and overactive sweating. If you’re wondering if wrinkle relaxing injections are for you, ask yourself if you want to prevent or diminish any of these signs of aging:

  • Forehead lines
  • Lines between the brows
  • Tired eyes (non-surgical brow lift)
  • Crow’s feet
  • Downturned lips
  • Chin dimpling
  • Strong masseter muscle (facial slimming or bruxism/grinding teeth)
  • Hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating underarms, palms, soles of feet)

During a complimentary consultation at 8 West Clinic, we’ll discuss your individual needs and your facial aesthetic goals. You’ll come away with a comprehensive treatment plan that’s designed just for you.

How are wrinkle relaxing injections performed?

Neuromodulator injections are performed with your cosmetic injector treating targeted areas by administering several micro-droplet injections through a tiny needle directly into the muscles that cause expression lines to form. Your injector will likely have you make certain facial expressions before or throughout the treatment to guide the placement of neuromodulator product.

Knowing precisely how much and where to inject is what makes the difference in achieving results that look and feel natural. Our expert injectors are highly skilled at placing the perfect amounts of neuromodulator product in the perfect areas for optimal results that you’ll love.

The treatment is typically done within minutes, with no topical numbing required.

How do wrinkle relaxing injections work?

Wrinkle relaxing injections, or neuromodulators, are a botulinum toxin, meaning that they work to relax the muscles which they are injected into. Lines and wrinkles are formed from the natural expressions, and are categorized into two different types; dynamic and static.

  • Dynamic Wrinkles are those caused by making certain expressions; the lines by our mouth when laughing and smiling, the creases on your forehead when you frown or are focusing. These lines come and go with your expressions, but after a while can leave more permanent marks on your face.
  • Static Wrinkles are etched more permanently in our skin, and will remain during a neutral facial expression.

When used in small doses, neuromodulators subtly relax the muscles that form lines and wrinkles. This can be used preventatively to slow down the appearance of static lines, and also as treatment for diminishing dynamic lines and softening some static lines—depending on your skin, facial muscles, and severity of the wrinkles. For some patients, it may be beneficial to combine wrinkle relaxing injections with energy-based treatments such as laser skin resurfacing for the most optimal results.

What should I expect with wrinkle relaxing injections?

Most patients begin to see diminished lines and wrinkles within a few days of their neuromodulator treatment, and you’ll see the full results within 14 days.

Each injection treatment takes only a few minutes to complete, and you can return to work or your other normal activities right away. It’s also safe to gently put makeup on within a few minutes of your treatment if you want to cover any redness. Any small red areas will only be visible immediately after the treatment and will reduce in a short period of time post-treatment.

We suggest that people do not perform any strenuous exercise post-treatment, but light cardio is fine. We also ask that people do not lie down for 6 hours post-treatment, as this increases the risk of the product migrating to other muscles/areas.

Wrinkle relaxing injections create smoother skin that lasts for 3 to 4 months for most people before another visit is required.
