Wrinkle relaxing injections have become a popular choice among Centre for Pure Skin staff and patients to both prevent and reduce the appearance of unwanted lines and wrinkles.
Products, such as Botox® and Dysport®, are essentially natural, purified proteins that work with receptors in the muscle to reduce overactive movements that can lead to unwanted lines and wrinkles. Both are formulated with botulinum toxins that have been proven to be safe when administered in low doses. In cosmetic applications, they can be used to treat static wrinkles (lines that you see at rest) or even soften facial movements that may lead to lines and wrinkles in the future.
The ideal candidate for wrinkle relaxing injections is 18 or older, is in good health, is a non-smoker and is committed to following all pre- and post-care instructions.
As West Michigan’s preferred provider* for wrinkle reducing injections, our patients count on us to treat their wrinkles in the following areas.
Certain facial movements often lead to changes in the look of the forehead. Several small injections with a fine needle may be used to address this area—smoothing lines all over the forehead and even lifting the brow.
“Crow’s feet” and “bunny lines” are common descriptors for wrinkles that appear around the eyes. In some circumstances, a small amount of wrinkle relaxing product can be used to soften the movements that lead to these lines for a more refreshed and youthful appearance.
A “lip flip" can be an effective approach to enhancing the appearance of your mouth. In this procedure, a small amount of Botox® or Dysport® is injected into the cupid’s bow area allowing the upper lip to “flip” outward to add the appearance of more volume, improve a “gummy smile,” or soften vertical lip lines.
The look of the neck and jawline can make a huge impact on the overall aesthetics of your facial appearance. Wrinkle relaxers can be injected into the muscles in this area to improve definition, soften necklines and give a slimmer appearance. They can also target the masseter muscle to reduce jaw clenching and teeth grinding.

During your initial visit to Centre for Pure Skin, you will meet with our Facial Aesthetics Consultant to review your medical history, discuss your desired results, go over any possible risks and complications, and learn about expected outcomes, aftercare and pricing. Then, you’ll move on to treatment.
Most wrinkle relaxing injections with Botox® or Dysport® are quick and easy—lasting no more than 20 minutes. A very fine gauge needle is used and several “pinprick” injections are made into the treatment area. Most patients describe these injections as mildly uncomfortable or even painless. There is no downtime associated with wrinkle relaxing injections, but we do ask that you refrain from any intense exercise for at least 24 hours.
At Centre for Pure Skin, we use two of the most well-known wrinkle relaxing products available in the US—Botox® Cosmetic & Dysport®. We typically base the product selection for your treatments on patient preference and expected outcomes.
