About Wrinkle Relaxers
Are you troubled by lines and wrinkles developing on your forehead and around your eyes? Frequently called dynamic lines and wrinkles, these skin changes appear as a result of repetitive facial expressions, including frowning, squinting, and smiling. Elysium SurgiSpa offers BOTOX® and Dysport® wrinkle relaxers to temporarily reduce moderate to severe frown lines, horizontal forehead lines, and Crow's feet. Derived from the botulinum toxin type A, wrinkle relaxers function to temporarily relax the muscles that assist with those contractions, letting the overlying skin to smooth on its own. Our team is pleased to offer this nonsurgical aesthetic solution to help you enjoy a younger-looking, rejuvenated appearance. Contact us in Chicago, IL to set up your consultation.

Wrinkle Relaxers Reviews
"I was nervous about getting Botox for the first time but Tylar the nurse was so kind and educational. I love my results! I can’t wait to come back for more services. The spa is clean, relaxing, and front desk staff is super friendly."- J.I. / Google / Nov 14, 2021
"Dr. Mick and Tylar were so professional and informative. It was my first time getting any botox treatment, but I felt comfortable getting treatment done by Tylar, guided by Dr. Mick. Both were honest in regards to treatment planning to meet desired results. Highly recommend and look forward to getting more work done in the near future."- K.M. / Google / Nov 14, 2021
"My experience at Elysium was fantastic! Right when I entered the building, I was greeted by the lovely reception and offered water. I was quickly taken for my appointment and was given the most wonderful hydra facial by Tylar. After the hydrafacial, Tylar took me for a Botox consult. It was my first time ever receiving Botox and Tylar not only made me feel more comfortable, but explained everything in both medical and layman terms. She helped make the experience extremely comfortable and kept gauging how I felt throughout the whole process. I am so impressed with the results of my Botox that I am completely addicted and can’t wait to come back! I will specifically go back to Elysium and ask for Tylar."- L.B. / Google / Nov 21, 2021
"Obsessed with my first time treatment of Botox. I got about 30 units, and Dr. Mick did such a fantastic job hitting the focal points on my forehead."- C.H. / Google / May 11, 2022
"Such a wonderful place! Everyone that works here is so helpful, professional and knowledgeable. The results are amazing - I’ve gotten Botox, facial and lip filler. The place I went before was awful with scheduling which is why I switched. When I came here, they actually recommended I get less Botox than what the other place was giving me. After a few months of being a client at Elysium I can already tell how much better the quality is and I can appreciate them recommending less for me even if it means they make less money."- E.L. / Yelp / Jul 06, 2022
What Should I Expect with Wrinkle Relaxers?
Wrinkle relaxers are ideal for men and women who have noticeable "11" lines between the eyes (glabellar lines), as well as forehead wrinkles or Crow's feet. Given that BOTOX and Dysport are administered during a fast, outpatient treatment, your injections can often be carried out during your consultation at our Chicago, IL office. The formula will be injected into the problem areas of your forehead or face using a fine needle. Your injections will only take a few minutes to complete, and you shouldn't experience anything more than quick, minor discomfort. Following your appointment, you can get right back to your normal daily activities. You might see some slight bruising, redness, and swelling in the treatment areas, but these symptoms are temporary. Over the next 2 – 3 days, you should begin to see your smooth enhancements with results lasting up to four months. To maintain your best outcomes, we recommend scheduling touch-up appointments every 3 – 4 months.
Wrinkle Relaxer FAQ
Is BOTOX a wrinkle relaxer?
Yes, BOTOX is a wrinkle relaxer, or what is called a neuromodulator – commonly known as a muscle relaxer. It works by relaxing the facial muscles in the targeted area to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, giving you smoother-looking skin.
Do wrinkle relaxers really work?
Yes, as evidenced by the millions of individuals who use wrinkle relaxers like BOTOX and Dysport to reduce fine lines, Crow’s feet, and wrinkles in the face. Wrinkle relaxers work to prevent the lines that form on the forehead, and around the eyes and mouth when we express emotion in our faces (smiling, frowning, laughing).
How long do wrinkle relaxers last?
The effective window of wrinkle relaxers will vary from person to person, but you can expect the results to last between three and six months, depending on which treatment you choose. After that time, the normal muscle action returns (along with the lines and wrinkles), and you’ll need another treatment.
Do wrinkle relaxers hurt?
The needles used to inject wrinkle relaxers are very small, with most patients reporting little to no discomfort at all, other than a slight pinch or pressure.
