Wrinkle relaxers have the potential for a multitude of uses or benefits. Maybe you were considering them simply to restore your skin, but did you know about the other uses of this treatment?

Firstly, what are wrinkle relaxers? Wrinkle relaxers are a medical treatment that involves tiny injections being placed into the muscle. These injections block the signal from the nerve to the muscle which stops them contracting.



Primarily, clients use wrinkle relaxers as an effective treatment to take control and restore their skin with natural results. Wrinkle relaxers smooth and plump out the face without giving you a ‘done’ look.

The most common areas of treatment are:

  • Crows feet
  • Frown/Forehead lines
  • Smokers lines
  • Bunny lines
  • Lip lines


But you knew that, right? So what are some of the more unknown uses of wrinkle relaxers?



It might sound counterintuitive that injectables can cause slimming of an area but this popular procedure can do just this.

The masseter muscle, a thick muscle located near the side of the jaw facilitates movement of the jaw. When clients suffer from teeth grinding or clenching this muscle can become enlarged causing the appearance of a square jawline. Wrinkle relaxers can be injected into this area to relax the muscle which results in creating a slimmer jawline.



Everyone sweats, it’s how our body naturally cools down – however excessive sweating known as hyperhidrosis can be embarrassing and also predispose you to skin infections. Wrinkle relaxers can be an effective cure, injected into the armpits they block the chemical signals from the nerves that stimulate the sweat glands.



One of the more recently reported trends in LA is the ‘blotox.’ It’s wrinkle relaxers for your scalp, this stops sweating thus preserving your blowout. It might sound excessive but some salons overseas are offering this service to clients that are spending their hard earned cash at the hairdresser, only to have your blowout destroyed by a humid day or a spin class.
