If you see signs of aging, you may wonder what solutions are available to slow things down or “turn back the clock.” Wrinkle relaxers are an excellent option to help with problems such as forehead lines, frown lines and crow’s feet.

You’ll find a range of wrinkle relaxer treatments to meet your specific skin concerns. If you want to learn more about wrinkle relaxers, the medical professionals at It’s a Secret Med Spa can help you explore options such as cosmetic injections and dermal fillers.

Wrinkle Relaxers Treatment: What It Does for You

Wrinkles are lines and creases that form in your skin and are part of aging. This process happens as your skin naturally becomes firm due to collagen loss as we age. Before discussing how you can reduce wrinkles, it’s helpful to understand what they are and why they form.

Wrinkles can form on almost any area of your skin but are most noticeable on your face. Forehead lines are often some of the first wrinkles people get because they’re generally caused by everyday facial movements, such as smiling, laughing, frowning and squinting. Frown lines are similar and, despite their misleading name, aren’t only caused by frowning.

You know why wrinkles form, but how do wrinkle relaxers work to reduce them?

Our medical spa offers a variety of FDA-approved treatments to help you attain your aesthetic goals. Wrinkle relaxers like Botox and Dysport target specific facial muscles and reduce their movement. This helps create a smoother, more youthful appearance.

Botox vs. Dysport: Battle of the Wrinkle Relaxers

There are many wrinkle relaxers you can choose from. However, Botox and Dysport are two of the most common options you’ll find — and the ones we offer here at It’s a Secret Med Spa.

Botox is a name you’ve probably heard, while Dysport injections are less widely known. Here’s the bottom line about how these anti-aging injectable options compare.

Botox Cosmetic

  • Botox is one of the most well-known injections used in treating wrinkles. It can help diminish (or even eradicate) the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles by injecting botulinum toxin into the facial muscles.

    Botox is FDA-approved and an excellent alternative to more invasive plastic surgery options. In addition, many patients find botulinum toxin particularly useful in treating a small targeted area (such as severe frown lines). Botox typically takes 12 days to fully kick in.


  • Dysport is one of the lesser-known wrinkle relaxers, but it’s an excellent option for people hoping to have the same results as Botox in half the time. Dysport typically takes 5 days to kick in. If that’s what you’re looking for, consider using Dysport as your go-to treatment for reducing lines and wrinkles.
